The razor came too dull to shave but with the 100% sharp guarantee I sent it back and the turn around was pretty quick so I’m excited to get it back and start shaving!
The box came in perfectly great condition with all items intact. The instruction manual gave great insight on the items provided and even came with a card which could get you a free shave soap if you provided feedback, unfortunately that website didn't allow for proper verification of the order. The only part which is hard about learning to straight shave is getting past the fact your peripheral vision is skewed on your dominant side for shaving and is hard to see your starting point. I've been stropping my razor each time before use to ensure sharpness and accuracy, but there's no explanation for what the blue eel side should be used for. The Solomon blade is a perfect starter blade point for beginners, it offers less chance of knicks and cuts like other shapes may be prone to. I suggest starting with this blade before moving on to more advanced one's to prevent injury. The only other video of shaving I would suggest is how to best get the ideal 30° angle perfect for shaving, not everyone is a good judgement of angle. Overall, very satisfied with my purchase and will continue honing my straight shaving skills to have better skin.
Brown Straight Razor Kit | Men's Gift Box
Straight razor shaving is such a pleasure. I shaved off my beard to try it and I couldn't be happier. As far as NAKED ARMOR, it's absolutely the best. My SOLOMON STRAIGHT RAZOR KIT is perfection.
My grandfather gave me his old razor 40 years ago, never used it. I’m at the age that I wanted to try shaving the old fashioned way. This kit fit the bill. Loved the first shave.
