The razor, bowl, brush, and stand all look great and have a good weight to them.

This is like a 3.5 stars.

The holder thing is great, the blade is great, the brush is okay. The little bowl is eh, what annoyed me was the soap. It's glycerin soap. Odds are if you are buying this you want the "true" and "genuine" feel of things, not a glycerin soap that feels like children's soap. Yeah there's a few pictures with the green lime I got, but the main picture has a white soap that led me to believe it would be a different kind of soap...

The brush you think is great until you buy a quality one and realize it's not so great, heh. The biggest problem with this set is quality control, you can tell from the description, "Brush, razor", that they're trying to be non specific. That's why you'll see a review saying one thing, and another saying another. They basically put together a random set, so you dont know which soap/razor/brush/bowl you'll get.

Knowing now what I know, if I could go back, I'd buy the stand and brush separately, the blade any merkur is fine. And a different bowl (the thing is tiny, at least in my man-hand), and the hitting of the brush on it is a bit annoying.

I purchased this as a gift for my 84 year old Father. He has arthritis and had been having difficulty getting a close shave. Dad has never worn a beard and, as he likes to tell it, "During WWII in the Pacific, as soon as I got water, I shaved. I kept my feet dry and my beard gone."

I bought him an electric razor, but he didn't like it. I bought him different shave creams and razors, but he looked scraggly. I kept reading different reviews about what might work.

I finally found this set on Amazon. I liked the design of the Razor Stand because it would hold both the brush and razor. Keeping these dry is important. I figured if he didn't like the soap and bowl, I could go back online and look for others.

He LOVES everything! He keeps telling me that he is getting the best shave he has ever gotten. He no longer gets a "five o'clock" shadow. I even think the shave soap is improving the condition of his skin.

This is a great set. If it can please my Dad, it should please any man who likes to be clean shaven.

I am in the military and have thick facial hair. That being said, it is important for me to have a nice, clean shaved face 5-6 days out of the week. After reading the reviews on safety razors I decided to put the multi-razor heads aside and purchased this kit for myself. At first I wasn't too pleased with it until I finally learned how to use it properly.

Now that I have gotten the hang of it, and not finishing with cuts here and there, I think its awesome. Its the closest shave I've ever had and doesn't leave razor burn like the fuzion that I was using previously. The kit may seem a little pricey, but considering that you can purchase a hundred double edge blades for around 10 dollars really helps eliminate the chance of buyers remorse. Especially when it costs 10-14 dollars for a set of 3 replacement fuzion heads that only last about a week and a half per.

I do suggest Googling "how to shave w/ a safety razor" to spare yourself and your skin the torture I went through in the beginning, lol.

I received this set as a gift not too long ago, and have to say that I'm extremely satisfied with it.

I'd also like to address some complaints that I saw other people listed with this set. 1) The biggest complaint that I've noticed is people commenting that the razor handle was too short, and at first I was of the same persuasion. After a bit of use though, and researching how to use it properly, I learned that holding it by the tip made it so that you don't use any extra pressure than the weight of the razor (which is something that you definitely don't want to happen). And so, with proper holding, the shorter handle allows for better control over the razor without having to choke up on it. 2) Someone mentioned that the soap was too tough and they had to cut it up to use. With proper brush technique (wetting the soap, the brush, letting it soak for a minute), this is absolutely not the case. All Col. Conk soaps that I have tried have lathered up quite nicely and easily.

Learning to use the set well is what will make it great. For this, I highly recommend checking out [...] if you are unfamiliar with safety shaving.

All I can say is 'WOW'.

I, like so many others, have never had the opportunity to know the world of double-edge shaving until recently - and being only 31 years old, I have never had the pleasure to have experienced that perfect 'barbershop shave' so many men talk about. A friend at work told me about the 'great' experience he had shaving with his new DE razor and he showed me some youtube videos on the subject. After some thought I went ahead and ordered this package to see what the fuss was about.

!WOW!

It was definately the closest, most comfortable shave I have EVER had. Instead of the supplied soap I use a C.O.BIGELOW shave cream made by Proraso. A word of WARNING - I watched nearly ALL of the 'wet-shaving' videos on youtube by mantic59 several times before attempting to shave with this razor for the first time. After you install the first blade and bring that sharp, naked, unrelenting edge to your face, you will be glad you have the knowledge that the youtube videos provided.

I normally have a goatee and shave only my cheeks and neck. I wanted to put this razor to the ultimate test so I did not shave for nearly 2 weeks before it arrived. I thought for sure that I would have a challenging time to say the least, cutting through my THICK beard without nicking myself especially since this was my first time using this type of razor. But having practiced what I learned from online forums and videos, I was elated at how effortlessly the blade sliced off even the thickest parts of my beard with ease.
