I purchased this safety razor because I have been dissatisfied with the expense and shaving experience of disposable razors, and wanted to experiment with safety razors with a low-cost, entry-level product. I expected the product to be functional, but somewhat flimsy. After receiving it, I was pleasantly surprised by its quality. The "three pieces" referred to in the product description are the handle and the two pieces that make up the head. The top piece of the razor's head contains a male threaded component at the center, which feeds through the bottom piece of the head into the female threaded component in the handle. The handle is a stainless-steel tube with female threads at the top and bottom. A "pommel" of sorts screws into the bottom of the handle. The handle is hollow, and could possibly hold toothpicks or other small toiletry items. The product as a whole is durable and precisely-machined. All the parts fit together easily and snugly, with no danger of coming apart during use. The product has a nice, solid heft to it. The all-metal construction holds heat nicely when rinsed in hot water. I found the closeness of shave, frequency of cuts, and ease of use to be comparable to disposable razors. However, the lower expense of double-edged blades, the solid, weighty feel of the razor, and the heat of the razor head after rinsing combine to provide a more pleasant and less expensive shaving experience.

I've just started shaving with a DE razor and I was looking for something to get me started without destroying my budget. This is that tool. It seats blades nice and straight, is easy to grip, and is inexpensive, yet sturdy. VERY forgiving and mild shave. I have really sensitive skin, yet I've gotten no razor burn or breakouts. It's really helped me learn DE shaving technique.

Note: Buy a sample pack of blades with this. First, this razor doesn't come with any. Second, you'll want to try out a bunch of different kinds to find the brand that works for your skin.

Don't be fooled by the cheap packaging, this is one aggressive safety razor! I have experience with vintage, German, and other inexpensive safety razors and this packs a punch. It is a solidly built razor.

The handle is made out of stainless steel and is knurled for non-slip performance. It also has some heft to it. The head (which is two pieces) is well built but nothing special. However, when loaded, the blade exposure is more open than other double edge razors of similar design. This indicates that you are in for one aggressive shave. The trick to this razor (as to most DE razors) is to let the weight do the job. If not, you will most likely pay for it, so have a styptic pencil on hand. This seems like it would be a good entry-level double edge razor but don't be mistaken. Lord razors from Egypt make better entry level razors in this price range.

I would recommend this razor for users who prefer the performance and aggressiveness of Murkur razors but don't want to pay above $30 for one. Of course, the presentation of this razor has its flaws, (the metal on the bottom head is not very thick and the plating of the metal is not up to par with German quality standards).

Let me tell you a secret about this razor. . . It's constantly rebranded. Just compare the Big Roc and Concord razor and you'll see what I mean. Oh yeah, I got mine at a 99cent store with Chinese writing on the package. Good luck!

Despite being in my thirties I often had breakouts of mild acne using any modern disposable or electric razor. I decided to switch to a double edge safety razor, because I had read that some people are not irritated using the older style system. I was amazed at how much most of the razors sold for. It seems many of the items were designed more for vanity and appearance, and a higher price does not equal a better product. I searched online and found this razor. It works great, and my neck is no longer irritated when I shave. The seller shipped this item promptly and it was delivered right on time. I am one happy customer!

This is my third safety razor. I have had a Parker and a Merkur. They were both good, high quality, razors that had some heft to them. I recently lost the Parker, and I gave the other one to my son last year. So, I needed a new razor.

I purchased this razor based on the great reviews and the inexpensive price. It seems very lightweight and is not as substantial as the other two, but it gives a closer shave than either of them. The blade is really exposed and I did cut myself the first time I used it, but the shave was the closest I have ever had. I did not need to go back over portions of my face. One run was all it needed. This razor is amazing, and that is before you take in to account the low price.

I highly recommend this razor.

I bought both the Concord Double Edge DE Safety Razor 3-piece model and the Lord Premium Safety Razor Model LP1822L aka L6. I also purchased a sample pack of razors.
I hadn't read many reviews by women, so I was a little intimidated by the safety razor. However, I thought that the savings were well worth giving it a try. I also like the fact that it greatly reduces the manufacturing waste compared to shaving with disposable razors.
My husband and I each wanted to try the safety razor. He was nice enough to let me try both razors first to determine which one I liked best and he took the other.
Blade; The Concord razor shows quite a bit of blade edge. However, the angle of the blase is a little less severe than the angle on the Lord razor. I like the Concord best in this regard.
Handle; I liked the deep goove pattern on the handle of the Concord razor best. The handle of the Lord razor has a shallow crosshatch pattern. My sensitive skin didn't like the feel of the crosshatch pattern on the Lord razor. It felt like holding a metal nail file.
Results; I shaved in the shower using sensitive skin shaving cream with both razors. As far as the shave, they are pretty equal. My legs have never felt so smooth. I was also concerned about shaving more sensitive areas, but I was pleasantly surprised by the ease and results. I have not yet cut myself with the razors (knock on wood) due to being very careful and deliberate while using them.
My overall review is that both of these razors are great and will save you money. I just happened to like the feel of the Concord quite a bit more than the Lord. My husband is very happy with the Lord. He gets a great shave with little to no irritation. Kissing him is really nice!
I think that I will eventually purchase another razor. A longer handle will make shaving in the shower a little easier, but I'm in no hurry.

This razor should be priced around $4.99 because that is all it is worth. The metal feels cheap and it feels like it will not last many years. Other then that, it works very well and it is a good razor to start off with.

I stumbled upon these safety razors because I was tired of being ripped off by "modern" razor companies who charge insane amounts for all those 3 and 5 blade toss away blades. I am very, very, pleased with safety razors and I am never going back to those over priced multi-blade razors.

If you buy a safety razor, make sure you buy good blades. Buy a few different blades from a few different companies to start off. I did this at first to make sure I was giving the safety razor a fare chance, and it proved to be a wise choice of action because I found that some company's razors were very good and some were very bad. If I had my first experience with only a bad razor, I may have
assumed that safety razors basicly did not work well and that that is why they have gone out of favor with the majority of people and I would have gave up on the idea. Man, am I happy that did not happen because these safety rozors are a frugal man's dream come true. I like Wilkonson blades. The shark blades are ok, they do not last as long as the wilkonson, but the price on the hunderd pack of Shark blades is a real deal.

If you are new to safety razors be prepared to get a few nicks at first until you get the hang of using the razor. The trick is to feather in softly on the hair and to use a few passes if needed to clear the area. If you lay the razor on the face, press it there, and then drag it firmly on the skin, like you would one of the modern style multi-blades, be prepared for a rude awakening, because you will almost surely cut your skin.

Hope this helps.
Be safe, be well.

My boyfriend and I had been discussing how safety razors are more eco friendly and inexpensive, and said to be a better shave by enthusiasts. I decided to make the leap, and was disappointed to have trouble finding tips and reviews on shaving with these types of razors by and for women. Let's face it, legs, armpits, etc... we have a LOT more surface area to deal with. So girls, this review is for you.

I was worried about some of the negative reviews, and wondered if I should get a more high end razor, but in the end, I decided to save money and try this one out, and I don't regret it. The Concord is a nice weight, and relatively unfussy, as far as changing blades goes.

I just shaved my legs with it for the first time today using Astra Platinum blades. It's not nearly as scary as I expected- I only knicked myself once on the knee, and didn't even feel it. The sensitive knee-pits? Not a problem. My legs are the smoothest they've ever been! This is a great little razor, I will never go back.

This is a very good safety razor for those who are tired of paying a fortune for disposable cartridges and want to save money as well as get a superior shave. Works great with Williams mug shave soap and either badger or boars' hair shaving brush. I use Shark blades in it, but should work well with other brands too. Thought it would be difficult or a hassle to shave like grandpa, but I find it just the opposite. Those who haven't used a safety razor before, they're really easy to use, just use a good foaming shave soap and go slowly. If you have heavy beard stubble, you might want to eventually try a slightly heavier razor with a longer handle, but if you're hesitant about switching to "old fashioned" wet shaving, at nine dollars this is an affordable, well-made razor to start out with and should last a long time.

While not a bad place to start, I'd spend a little more and get a better razor. I used it long enough to know that I liked DE shaving and quickly moved on since then. Personally I've grown to like Parkers, they're about ten dollars more, but they're twice the quality. Honestly there's nothing really wrong with this razor, it's just a very low end product. An old Gillette will give you better quality for comparable money if you don't mind a used razor (they clean up nicely). If you insist on buying this one, just know what you're getting (nothing special).
