Good quality product. Nice clean shave. The weight and feel of the razor is natural and let's me know it's not cheaply made.
Excellent packaging, shipping, and site shopping experience. Very nice transaction for the purchase (+2 stars)
This is a very excellent looking and feeling razor (+1 star). Decent balance but a little heavy for my liking with the stainless handles (preference, no stars deducted).
Where my real issue comes in is the blade quality/sharpness. To be fair they recommend a good strop and stropping prior to shaving. I gave this a very good stropping, but did not get a decent shave (-1 star). I then took this blade to my 3000 grit stone, 8000 grit stone, and again a good stropping. Blade felt VERY sharp and I began to shave. To my surprise, the blade needed a significant touch up with the strop about 1/2 way through my shave (-1 star). Now to be fair, I am a dry shaver (yep no creams, soaps,etc) and this can be very tough on blades. If it was not for the lack luster blade performance, I would have given this unit a very great review.
I've been shaving with the straight razor for about 2 months now. Believe it or not I haven’t nicked myself once yet. I’m either an old soul or using the razor just comes nature for me. I have never had such a smooth and comfortable shave. I can’t say the same for the safety razor. I wish I would have started years ago. My biggest fear was cutting big chunks out of my face. I would recommend it and I would encourage everyone that use other types razors including electric to switch to a straight razor.
Very sharp and usable out of the box.
These people and products are the best! I will always be loyal to this company solely based on how well they take care of their customers. I was very impressed on how quickly they responded to my questions and went above and beyond to take care of a minor issue I had. I’ll be a customer for ever.
