Consumers have long been asking manufacturers of shaving products to account for for curvatures in the body, but most are not as effective as this flexible razor design. While many shavers merely claim to provide a close trim around chins and jawlines, this particular design quite obviously bends to the demand.

Emami Design of Germany came up with this handy apparatus that works on the Fin Ray Effect principle, mimicking the adaptable form of a fish. You can see the bony structure of the razor, influenced by the fish skeleton, with its soft spines that can enable the thin blade to curve under light pressure. Simply pressing down on the flexible razor creates a contouring shape to prevent injuries and require fewer strokes overall. It shouldn't be a surprise that the Flexishave was a winner of the Red Dot Design Award.
