Rated 5 out of 5 by Zinse24 Tough Beard No PROBLEM
I recently started to shave with a Straight Razon. I purchased a Carbon Steel blade and thought it was good enough for the type of beard I have. But I just purchased this specific blade with the Stainless Steel Blade and let me tell you. First Shave is just as advertised. It cuts through the beard like a Japanese Knife through butter. No pulling no doouble passing. One straight shot and done. Finally a blade that can cut though my my beard like it's meant to be. Bye bye Beard. Get it and enjoy it before they take it out of the market. Regards

Rated 5 out of 5 by Roamie First Straight Razor
At $25+ a package, I got tired of buying blades for my three-blade razor so I decided to make the move to a straight razor. Steve at the store in Chandler, Arizona recommended this one. Even with the $175 price tag it shouldn't take long at all for this blade to pay for itself. After that it's all money in my pocket.
Having no experience with other straight razor blades, it's a little more difficult to write a comparative review. I can only relay my impressions with this blade. Firstly, I'm completely impressed with the quality of craftsmanship. Simply put: it's GORGEOUS. The contrast between the gold etching and gold overlaid spine with the polished Carbon Steel blade (not Stainless, as the product description states) makes it a true work of art. Picking it up and opening it shows the amazing precision of the craftsmanship in this blade. The action is smooth as silk. What's more, the balance between the opened blade and the Cocobolo handle made even a novice like me feel a lot more at ease putting this surgical-steel-sharp blade to my face. The hollow ground blade is paper thin and the closeness of the shave it affords is beyond compare to any cartridge razor you'll ever use - vibrating or not. And I agree with TheUVCatastrophe's comment above, the blade almost sings as it glides across your face. I don't think I could be more impressed. I just wish my beard grew faster; I have to wait an extra day between shaves and this blade is just so much fun to use. I hear a lot of people go through several purchases before finding the right straight razor, but I honestly don't think I could ever find a better one that this.

This is my first straight rszor and I have to say it was so smooth and close and no cuts wow! I put a little dab of art of shaving Ocean Kelp pre-shave gel and then Ocean kelp shaving cream and away I went it was like gliding down a ski slop so smooth and no cuts he he which I thought I would get for my first time shaving with this type of razor, I highly recomend this razor for looks and quality it also feels really comfortable in your hand with it's wooden handle and gold accents a 10+ in my book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joeyboy Cocobolo Dark Wood Straight Razor
I recently recieved this razor as a gift for Christmas and I can honestly say that this is the best razor I have ever owned. It was amazing right out of the box. Smooth and very close. The quality of the handle is far superior from the competition and perfectly balanced. I have owned several straights, but this one is the best.
