I was provided a Giraffe Razor Extension Handle to facilitate this review; all opinions are my own.
Billed as a gap between self-sufficiency and dependency, the Giraffe Razor Extension Handle works with your favorite disposable razor to provide a close shave for those of us with limited mobility and flexibility problems. That includes pregnant women, those who’ve suffered an injury, or anyone who needs a little help when it comes to shaving their legs. But you don’t need to have a disability to enjoy the extra reach the extension provides.
The Giraffe Razor Extension Handle is a simple tool that provides a way to use your existing razor but enhances it with the ability to pivot and extend so you can shave with ease. The handle comes with two razor attachments which accommodate most every razor on the market. I should mention that while both adaptors are included, my second one quickly disappeared into a junk drawer that was weeded, so it ended up in the trash. Perhaps writing on the adapter what it belongs to will keep family members from mistaking it for junk and tossing it. 🙂
The adapter doesn’t provide a firm grip which was a bit troublesome, but that also means that the razor isn’t tightly set into it either so it has some give when you run the razor across your skin thus eliminating the dreaded razor cut.
I found the assistance of the extension handle to be perfect, and I was able to shave my legs in the shower standing up and without having to prop a leg against a slippery wall or doubling over which can be problematic for me since I lose my balance easily.
Giraffe Razor Extension Handle Benefits
The Giraffe adds from 15 to 20 inches to the length of your razor which can eliminate the need to bend at the waist. The pivoting head can be set at a 30°, 45° or 90° angle and it can be adjusted quickly so you can change it as necessary throughout your shave. The handle has a non-slip grip and a wrist lanyard.
The Giraffe is easy to use: just lock in the razor, adjust the length, choose the desired angle, and you are ready to shave!
