This Shavette is a close relative to the straight razor with the difference being that the blades can be changed, just like a safety razor. This means you don't have to worry about stropping and sharpening yet enjoy the closeness of a straight razor shave!
This budget razor is an ideal introduction to the traditional art of open razor shaving, as the technique is similar but without the need for razor honing and sharpening skills. Simply discard the blade after 2 or 3 uses and insert a fresh one. It has a holder which slides out from the blade section, into which you fit a double edged razor blade, which you have previously snapped in half. (leave the blade in the wrapping while you do this - it's safer!) The blade within the holder is then pushed back into the housing to leave the edge of the blade exposed for shaving.

Note: This will take Saloon single edge Razor Blades or standard DE razor blades (Simply snap a double edge blade in half).
