Pensa One Blade Man1


A daily ritual, redefined

ONEBLADE had a vision of a razor that would evoke the experience and quality of a classic straight razor shave in the comfort of the user’s home. We took it from there.

ONEBLADE is the result of more than a year of design and invention. We can confidently state it’s the best home shaving experience out there. From the moment the package is opened, the product conveys heirloom-quality luxury. Crafted from 100% German stainless steel, it feels solid and balanced, comfortably navigating facial contours to reach every angle.

Heritage meets user experience

The ONEBLADE razor has a unique head geometry and suspension that provides safety and comfort in a perfectly balanced package. The loading and unloading of this blade was a carefully considered user experience. A unique snap-in blade loading mechanism removes the typical dexterity challenges with loading a new blade into a safety razor. The audible click let’s you know that it’s game time.

Unmatched quality at every angle

This heirloom quality product demanded us to aim high. The ONEBLADE is 100% German stainless steel produced with metal injection molding, a process never before used in this type of product. We also incorporated a single edge blade made by Feather, the Japanese maker of the highest quality shaving blades in the world.
