Barber Sharp from Telebrands states it’s a razorblade rejuvenator that works with any type of disposable razor. They claim that if you run your razor blade across Barber Sharp’s unique silicon surface, it will repair nicks and bends and make it as good as new, saving you from having to buy expensive blades month after month.
How does Barber Sharp make my razor sharp again?
Barber Sharp claims to use the same concept your barber uses with his straight razor. Except instead of a leather strop, Barber Sharp says they have created a silicon surface that works in the same way.
A leather strop doesn’t actually sharpen a straight razor, but merely re-aligns the fine edge of the blade, which gets out of whack every time it is used on the face. Barber Sharp states that the same thing happens with the tiny blades on your disposable, which causes it to not give you as close a shave.
By running your razor across the surface of Barber Sharp a few times, they claim it will be perfectly re-aligned, giving you the sharp edge you need for shaving. They claim using Barber Sharp will let you use the same disposable razor blade for months, eliminating the need to buy new blades.
How much does Barber Sharp cost?
Barber Sharp sells for $10 plus $6.99 shipping, for a total of $16.99. But wait! They say if you would like a second Barber Sharp, you can add one at the time of your order for another $6.99 in fees, making the total $23.98 for 2.

Bottom Line: Is Barber Sharp a great way to re-sharpen my razor blades?
There’s nothing like a fresh, sharp razor for your morning shave and buying packs of blades at your drugstore every week or month can be insanely expensive (not to mention the fact that 2 billion disposable razors clog our landfills). That’s why the promise of Barber Sharp is so tempting.
But here’s a little secret that Telebrands doesn’t want you to know: you do not need Barber Sharp to sharpen your razors! First, and foremost, the main culprit causing a razor to lose its edge is corrosion.
Tip One: dry your blade with a towel or blow dryer after every use and clean with alcohol.
Tip Two: Use a pair of jeans as your strop, rubbing 10-20 times in both directions. According to Instructables, the tough denim will work in the same way as the leather, rejuvenating your blade so the edge is as good as new. (You can also use the underside of a leather belt.)
Tip Three: Just use your forearm! According to YouTuber Terry Pundiak, if you run the blade backwards gently up your forearm (against the grain so it doesn’t cut you) this motion will also re-align the blade. He says in the video he’s been using the same blade for over 20 months:
