It's amazing, the TTS sounds like a tape played backwards
Underwood ger Russo en rakhyvel
Is "razor blade" okay?
That would be rakblad. edit: ett rakblad
Can this refer to both a traditional razor and an electric razor?
No, the latter would be rakapparat - literally "shaving apparatus/device".
Tack så mycket!
How is "ger" pronouced?

If is not a razor blade nor an electric razor, what kind of razor is a 'rakhyvel'? Maybe one of those antique tools barbers used, with a foldable handle?
This is what I was referring to:
(Sorry for the huge pic, I couldn't find anything smaller with good image quality)
It looks old-fashioned and I've never seen anything like it.
Edit: Actually, it is not a "rakhyvel":). See devalanteriel's post below.
Och detta är ett rakblad:
DasMoose88: No, we use rakhyvel for that, though some say säkerhetshyvel.
If a razor blade is combined with the housing apparatus, however, it becomes a safety-razor. Is there a Swedish equivalent of "Safety-razor?"
Sorry, that's a rakkniv :)
Ok, so then we have rakkniv - shaving knife, rakhyvel - razor, rakblad - razor blade, rakapparat - electric razor
Watch out, hipsters...
Could "rakhyvel" refer to a box cutter razor, or is it only shaving razors?
Definitely a shaving razor. The box cutter kind is brytbladskniv - "break-blade-knife".
