Everything fits in case, even the stand when easily disassembled by unscrewing. Razor, brush, blades, soap, collapsing camping mug for lather bowl. All in a 7x4x2 leather package that you can toss in your duffle , suitcase or pack. All you need for a proper shave while on the road. Excellent!!
Thanks for introducing me to a responsible old-school shave. My face, ego, conscience, and wallet are singing. I can't believe I didn't do this years ago.
I’m a guy so I’ll keep this short and sweet. It arrived on time and this company provides an excellent product. Highly recommended.
This is an attractive set and it comes in a nice storage bag that is a convenient size for traveling. The only real issue that I have with the set is that the handle to the razor is a bit rough and can be uncomfortable to hold. The blade is sharp, and I like that it can be replaced.
The kit as a whole is pretty nice, but I do wish that the handle on the shavette was better made. The carrying bag is excellent, the stainless steel bowl is very nice (on par with many such bowls, though), and the brush is pretty good. I do like that the brush is badger friendly, and I also like that it doesn't have a strong musky smell.
The shave soap worked okay for me but not great. I ended up using my own that worked better, and the bowl and brush worked just fine with it.
This was my first try at a shavette, and...yeah, I cut myself. :) Holding the handle out of the way so that I can actually see where I'm shaving was unusual to me, and it's something that would definitely take some getting used to. People can put Gillette down, but I'm telling you, they know they're stuff. :) I haven't cut myself using one of their blades in several years, and I'm happy with the results.
My only real disappointment with the set is the condition of the handle. It's a nice wood, but it has some chips/chunks missing. Nothing horrible, but it didn't leave a great first impression - and definitely makes me say that this set (at least the one that I received) isn't worth the (as I write this) $70 price tag. You can get a brush, bowl, and shave soap on par with these for about $20.
