The Zafiro Razor is a very special rare razor, the handle of Zafiro razor is made of Iridium, a rare metal "from meteorites. " When I'm in Highschool my science teacher say Iridium is highly resistant to heat and it will not melt even you drop it in lava, and it is usually used in for space rockets. The screws that hold the Zafiro Iridium together are made of platinum. The two blades are made from white sapphire grown at former Soviet Union lab in Ukraine. Only 80 atoms thick on therir cutting edge (1/10.00th the width of the hair), lot sharper than any common blades on the market today. Zafiro claims the sapphire blades will stay sharp for about a year, and offers complimentary cleaning and resharpening for an entire decade.
