Medieval Razors

Setting: A pseudo-medieval-ish world, your rather standard fantasy setting.  Roughly European, culture-wise, and lots of trees.

Searched: 'razors,' 'history of razors,' 'medieval razors,' etc.  Also read Wikipedia's article on razors.

I have a character who is very particular about keeping himself looking neat, which includes shaving regularly.  What would he use to shave?  What sort of razor-ish blades were used during medieval times or thereabouts?  What would such thingies look like?
