I got it in the mail and after watching 2-3, maybe even 4 hours of video I was ready to give it a shot. I took a really hot shower and used tons of lather and success...kind of. I nicked myself a lot and had quite a few cuts, but aside from that, the shave was legit! I gave it a couple more tries over the next few weeks and got much better at my technique. But THEN. Oh, but then. My friend gave me a tip his barber gave him about putting the tiniest bit of tea tree oil on the razor to prevent razor bumps and to moisturize skin, and wow--that was the golden trick. Disclaimer--make sure your technique is a little bit better than mine was when I started, cuts and tea tree oil don't feel the best on your face at 7am. I tried using TreeActiv+ Tea Tree Oil Acne Solution for Advanced Acne Treatment - All Natural Acne Spot Treatment - Blemishes Gone or Your Money Back! and it worked really well.Read more ›
I think it really has become criminal what companies like Schick and Gillette are charging for disposable blades. They've also become completely carried away with creating blades with as many as five razors! Apparently you also need a battery for some, why, I have no idea. I used to use Atra Plus double blades with some sort of moisturizing strip. I even bought generic Rite Aid brands which were much cheaper but they were still about $1 per blade. I also typically got only a week out of a razor because of all the shaving cream and stubble that got caught between the blades. Trying to shave Monday after skipping the weekend usually meant changing the blade or trying to scrape all that gunk out of there. Yes, it's what I and most Americans have been raised on and it's definitely easier than a straight edge.
I originally purchased 100 Derby brand blades ($8.49), the plastic shaving factory razor, and a vile of styptic powder (you'll need this) all for about $22. That's 100 blades which last about 5-7 days depending on how thick your beard is. You can do the math but you don't need to be Einstein to know you are saving an unbelievable amount of money on razor blades. The problem with the plastic Shaving Factory razor I bought is that it's simply cheaply made. Eventually the round hinge will wear down and your razor will swing freely.Read more ›
This is a decent, entry level straight razor. If you're given to epileptic fits, seizures, constant tremors in your limbs, or are generally a royal klutz, please steer clear of this product. If the above descriptors do not apply, then read on.
The handle affords a nice grip, the blade holder swings a full 180 degrees to choose the angle most suited to your own style, and the best part ... the angle holds! The last thing one needs to worry about is having the blade arm swing wildly as one prepares to maul one's face.
I had numerous cuts and nicks on the first attempt. The second attempt resulted in a smaller blood loss, but I did see red.
The key is to shave right after a decent shower. Lather, lather, lather. I cannot overstress the importance of lathering up. Even after you've covered the visage under a nice, thick coat of lather, periodically touch it up with the brush dipped in warm water (foam will cool off rapidly on your face).
Plan your shave. This is one morning activity that definitely requires alertness. Have your morning coffee/tea if you're so inclined. Do NOT drink those fluids if they give you the shakes! Plan your attack. Identify the areas you will work on first. Have the dehumidifying fan on, or wait for the after-shower mist to clear. Alert your family members not to unleash any practical jokes right about now.
Start with small, even strokes of the blade. I recommend working on smooth, flat areas like the cheeks and mustache. I bought this razor to use in conjunction with he Parker 22R ([...] A wise move indeed. It will be weeks before I attempt the neck and chin with the straight razor.Read more ›

This razor works, however the build quality is extremely suspect. Low quality riveted construction, and the handle is made out of EXTREMELY cheap and low quality feeling steel. Read morePublished 2 days ago by geehol
It's a cheap intro to straight razors. I feels cheap, but that's because it is. For the price, it does exactly what it should. Five stars, when factoring in the price.Published 6 days ago by Robert Ber
