Seasons greetings and happy holidays from ManPossible. As we count down the days ‘til Christmas, sure… you can make a mad dash to the mall and give your loved ones the latest iPhone, iWatch or the flattest and the brightest of TVs (hopefully it’s somebody you like), but would those gifts really be a gesture of true love? While you sit confused on your throne trying to figure out the answer to that question (sidebar – our carefully conducted un-scientific research states that a big portion of you royalties indeed consume our posts while sitting on the throne), let us give you a little helping hand.
Look no further, what we have here today folks, is that gift. Today we are doing a review on the Razorpit Razor Blade Sharpener.
However, before we go into detail about this amazing product, the team here at MP would like to give a special shout out to the kind folks at ManEssentials for sending us the Razorpit Sharpener for review. ManEssentials is an online retailer of imported, prestige skincare and grooming products for men.

Just like ManPossible, ManEssentials is on a mission to better the grooming, “beauty”, and the wellbeing of mankind!

Now back to the task at hand…
The Razorpit Sharpener comes in a transparent plastic packaging. Underneath the transparent package is a simple and straightforward layout with the front showcasing an image of the product and the back providing the detailed description. The sharpener is a uniformed, sleek, black rectangular plastic device that resembles an iPhone, including the smooth and glossy coating, along with four rounded corners. The bottom of the sharpener is pretty much hollowed out with a thin strip of rubber lining on opposite ends to secure it in place when placed on a flat surface. Simplicity is really the key takeaway from the physical appearance of the product.
How does it work?
Before we get any further, it’s best to make a clear distinction between the Razorpit Razor Blade Sharpener and your typical knife sharpener. Yes, the Razorpit is a device designed with the purpose of keeping one’s razor blade sharp, but it does so via a unique approach. No, you do not place your razor blade at a specific angle and grind out the metal parts. Instead, the Razorpit focuses on removing any remnant dirt, hair or residues left between the blades after each shave (both visible and not so visible).
The idea is to leverage the Razorpit after each shave to eliminate any cumulating debris, which can cause the blades to become and feel dull quicker, ultimately shortening the overall lifespan. The instructions are simple and can be found at the back of the packaging:
- After shaving lubricate Razorpit with a thin layer of shaving product.
- Place your razor blade on the surface of the Razorpit. Push down with light pressure, and push razor forward along the entire surface of the Razorpit. Be sure to maintain a light pressure during the process.
- Repeat the “push down and push forward” process 3 – 4 time per usage. Once complete, rinse both razor and Razorpit with warm water to remove all remaining materials.
Razorpit is simple and straightforward. ManPossible actually had the Razorpit for a month or so and the experiments between using and not using the Razorpit showed a significant difference. Setting aside couple minutes after each shave to properly “clean” the razor helps the next shaving experience that much more fluid and smooth.
We absolutely love it when brands/companies set out to build products with a purpose. The Razorpit Razor Blade Sharpener was no exception. From the clean packaging, to the uniform design, and ultimately to the satisfying product performance, this particular product delivered on its mission and then some!
This holiday season, don’t be a jerk, go get your loved ones a Razorpit Razor Blade Sharpener.
