Rated 5 out of 5 by RobG Timeless & Effective
I bought this set along with the other Art of Shaving products nearly 2 years ago. I must say that there are no other products that compare to the pre-shave oil and shave cream introduced by Art of Shaving (except for some European products).
The brush has a great weight to it, making it a much better lathering process than that of the black, horn, or other brushes. Additionally, the weight of the razor makes for a much more even and balanced shave.
Lastly, the stand is elegant and classy - representative of how you should look after using the Art of Shaving. Moreover, the engraving on both the brush and razor do serve a functional purpose as well as an aesthetic one (better grip). I highly recommend this shaving set and the products as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lakingsfn Love this shaving set!!
I've owned this set since Jan 2010 and use it two to three times a week. The silver tip badger brush is extremely soft and builds a wonderful lather with the shaving cream, this feels awesome when applied to the skin and makes for a very comfortable shave. The weight of the silver handle also feels very solid and functional in the hand when using the brush.
The razor also has a very solid feeling, precise silver handle. I use the Gillette 3 blade system because it gives me the optimal balance between a quick shave and a good level of closeness/comfort when shaving. I have taken to cleaning the blade head in rubbing alcohol just after shaving, we have very hard water here and I get 3-4 shaves out of the blade before having to change the cartridge. Before using the rubbing alcohol, I was getting 2 shaves at best before having to change the blade.
The silver stand is very handsome and stores the brush and razor well in between uses.
