Rated 4 out of 5 by c2iowa Almost perfect
I appreciate the weight of this razor; just wish the handle was longer while maintaining the weight. The longer handled version felt too light for my preference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WRojas Best purchase
Well the other day I was dragged along to go shopping at the Roseville Galleria, CA. My wife and my mother in law went into a girly store that I did not want to go into. A few doors down I observed the Art of Shaving Store. I thought to myself thats more like it!! A man store!!
I decided to trudge my way inside the store and I was greeted by a good looking blonde retail professional. Man was I blinded by looks.. She provided me a sample of the shaving products they had and showed me my first safety razor. She indicated that safety razors are making a comeback and would save me money in the long run. 80 bucks later, I walked out with a fancy bag containing my short handle chrome safety razor and a pack of german razor refills.
I was thinking what the heck did I spend 80 bucks on? Did sexy girl just sale pitch me.. Hmm.. I took the razor home and a day later I applied the sample oil and shaving cream. Placed a new blade into my fancy razor and shaved away.
Wow! what a shave I got. So close and it left my face feeling so smooth!! I thought to myself.. That's legit Mind you that I did nick myself a few times, but it still was an awesome experience. (It's going to take a few times to get use to and learn how to do this man ritual all over again with this razor)
After years of buying cartridge razors, I noticed that it is expensive and the prices continue to climb. No more for me.!! The replacement blades for my new fancy safety razor is only a few bucks and they are double sided which I know will save me money in the long run.
I love my new razor!! If you ask me, I would definitely tell you to make the switch. You will love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AaronF This, along with the full shaving supply kit, is hands down the greatest gift I have ever received. Since using this product, I've experienced massively reduced irritation, as well as a much closer shave. Why I waited this long to try it out baffles me. Don'y make that same mistake!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Birdiegolf8 No more throw aways
This is my first step away from the mid level throw aways. Wow, what a difference. Shaving takes a few minutes longer due to getting used to the blade, but it is so worth it.
I bought the travel kit and find the oil to be a must have.
The blades don't last as long as your throw aways but I no longer have ingrown hairs, no longer get razor burn, and most importantly feel confident without the little scabs on my face.
