It was said to be that Zafirro Iridium is the world’s first razor with sapphire blades. It was made of iridium, which is one of the rarest and strongest metals in existence and ten (10) times rarely than platinum.

Moreover, it was believed that these razors were hypoallergenic, resistant to oxidation and corrosion, and very sharp. The blades, which were made from sapphire were 100 atoms in width and 5,000 times smaller than the width of the hair, reports added.

In addition to this, it has a 10-year guarantee, and if necessary to resharpen the blades, the company will provide free servicing and professional cleaning for their Iridium customers, as per reports said.

Zafirro CEO Hayden Hamilton was quoted saying, “”Our goal in founding Zafirro was to take a quantum leap forward in razor technology, to build the sharpest blade ever made and make it last forever. To launch our new blades, our aim was to create one of the most impressive consumer products ever made, something that could be equally at home in a Smithsonian technology exhibit or a MOMA design exhibition. We utilized expertise in fields as varied as rocket manufacturing, nanotechnology, and particle physics, to combine some of the rarest, strongest, and most technologically advanced materials in existence.”
