Invention Of The Week: Zafirro Is Sharper Than Any Other Blade On The Planet

Most of us shave. Lots of us shave in different places, and some of us shave in all places.

So, for all you razor blade fanatics there is a new one that just hit the market and it’s a ‘sharp’ and cool new invention.

Called Zafirro, it’s a pure, white sapphire blade razor and those who don’t like having body hair are hailing it the sharpest on the planet: 80 atoms (about 5,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair) at the tip and more than 100 times as durable.



The invention marks a new chapter in razor blade technology that’s for sure. For over the last 50 years many blades have been introduced on the market, but there is nothing like Zafirro. It’s the sharpest blade out there and it’s one that will last far longer than any other.

So what inspired a team of inventors from Portland, Oregon, to develop Zafirro?

“Billions of people on the planet use a razor every day, but when was the last time you saw one and thought, ‘Wow, that's a beautiful product?’ Or even one that you thought looked well-made.  Most razors are usually cheap plastic in neon orange, pink, or green, and at best look like a low quality kid's toy,” writes Zafirro’s team of inventors

They add, “We wanted to create a razor that was exceptionally well-made, a pleasure to use, and one of the most beautiful products you own; ideally the kind of product that could be handed down, like a nice watch. We spent years working with designers making dozens of adjustments to try to achieve that goal.”

A Cut Above The Rest

According to Zafirro’s team of inventors, sapphire is one of the hardest and most durable substances on the planet next to diamond. This is why Zafirro’s sapphire blades stay totally sharp for a very, very long time.



As well, sapphire’s material properties – all of which are unique in every sense – make the tip of the blade sharper than any other blade on the market. In fact it is more than 10 times sharper than a scalpel used by surgeons.

Zafirro’s team of inventors has spent the last decade working with semiconductor manufacturers to accomplish sharpening on this atomic scale.

Even better, Zafirro is beneficial for the environment. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that nearly 2-billion razor blades end up in landfills each year.



So, since sapphire is amazingly strong and durable and much harder than steel, the blades last way longer than traditional ones you can buy at grocery stores, variety stores and pharmacies. For someone who shaves once every two or three days, Zafirro will last for about 12 months. For those who shave each day this new invention will last about six months.

Sharp And Smart Technology

Zafirro is indeed unique technology and its users always get a nice, clean and smooth shave with it.

This invention retails for $199.00 and replacement cartridges are $49.00 each.

While it might seem like an expensive product on the market, just think how much money you will save in the long run.



When you use Zafirro you don’t need to worry about always having to buy a razor blade or a packet of them every month. With Zafirro you own it for life and you only have to replace the cartridge once every six to 12 months, depending on how often you shave.

Zafirro is certainly a ‘cut above the rest.’

Zafirro is a first-of-its-kind blade. So, will we see more products like this one soon on the market?
