Paper Razor UP162

Kai, a Japanese knife manufacturer, has announced the launch of the world’s first paper razor. Created with eco-friendliness in mind, the disposable razor uses paper throughout the body and metal for the blade, reducing the use of plastic by 98% compared to conventional razors.

Kai has created the paper razor with milk cartoons or durable paper spoons in mind, referencing their water-resistant characteristics, allowing the razor to be used even if wet or under hot water (about 40ºC). Measuring only 131.5 x 59.7 x 3.1 mm (length x width x thickness) before assembly and 96 x 41.6 x 17 mm after assembly, the razor weighs a total of 4 grams, making it ideal for traveling and easy to use. Available in five colors — ocean blue, botanical red, jade green, sunny yellow, and sand beige — the razor will be available in japan from april 1st. The five-color set will cost around USD $10.30.
