Rated 5 out of 5 by Cotton Great 1st Straight Razor!
My family gave me this Straight Razor and I fell in love with shaving everyday. I now have the Ram's Horn 5/8 Straight and I cant wait to shave! If you want to do it right go to TAOS store and take your time and buy the razor that calls you. Remember your face will have to get used to the razor that's the only problem with being so enthusiastic about shaving, I took some skin but I did buy the alum block just in case. If you buy this one you won't regret it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OldSchool Excellent first razor
This was my first straight razor. It provides an excellent smooth shave every time. It does tarnish easily though so make sure you spend a little extra time drying it off before you put it away. The other thing I found was that the scaling is a little long, making it difficult to maintain a good grip on the razor without hitting your collar bone or neck. Overall this is a great product and I would recommend it as your first razor if you are interesting in shaving with a straight razor. I would also recommend taking it slow if you have never shaved with a straight razor or knife. if you are like me, I find it difficult to shave my dominant side with my dominant hand due to the angle so you take it slow as you get used to switching to your non-dominant hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DennisK AOS 5/8" Straight Razor
I first visited an Art of Shaving Retail store in Frisco, Texas before purchasing this razor online. After examining there product line, I could tell everything sold there was of high quality. Having never used a straight razor before, this one was a great choice. It shaves very smooth and is easy to strop. If your thinking of shaving with a straight razor, AOS is a great company to to purchase from. You won't be sorry.
