Metal memory razor blades

Dear Daniel, My question is…

I would imagine that a much better razor blade may be possible if a 'memory metal' or titanium were used...

What is the BEST metal for a twin or triple-blade razor?

Daniel Rouah Answers

The best and most advanced cartridge blades in the world are made by Gillette.

To make a blade from a precious metal or any other material will be too expensive and may not be as good.

Stainless steel with a carbonised edge is used at present.

… and would really hot water help a distorted blade's edge to be somewhat restored?

Daniel Rouah Answers

Hot water only cleans and disinfects the blade. Hot water will actually expand the metal and therefore make the shaving edge more uneven.
