Rated 4 out of 5 by SpartySAM Good Blade; Heavy Handle
First of all, lets understand that the stainless steel refers to the handle, not the blade. The blade is high carbon steel and consequently it suffers from all of the problems of such a steel (i.e., it rusts unless you oil and clean the blade after each use or store it in a dry location). Second, the blade is great - it is a Thiers Issard after all. Good shave. Third, the handle is heavy. I will disagree with one of the other reviewers. This is not a well-balance razor. With the heavy handle, it affects how you use the razor. Personally, I would rather have a heavy blade rather than a heavy handle (one of my favorite razors is the Le Grelot from Thiers Issard - this has a heavy blade). Would I buy this razor again? Probably. Is it my favor razor -- no - I like the other Thiers from this site as well as my Le Grelot and my Hart steel razors. If you need a durable handle, this is the razor. If you need a good razor that you can easily use, spend the extra and get the other Thiers on this site.
Again, good blade but heavy handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TomRod87 First Straight Razor, Excellent product
I purchased my razor at the Dallas Galleria store. I am on active duty, so I shave every day, and had tired of spending $15 (on average) for a four pack of Fusion Pro-Glide razors that were gone within a month. I selected the stainless steel model over the others available because the handle seemed more durable, which made it less likely that it would break during my travels. I have been using for over two months now and the closeness and consistency of the shave is incredible.

I have wanted a straight razor for years and recently received this one as a present. I have used it about a half dozen times now and it is absolutely fantastic. I do a fair amount of travelling, so the stainless steel handle on this razor will hopefully prove to be very durable. It has an excellent weight and balance which provides a lot of confidence when shaving.
So far I am very satisfied and would highly recommend this product!

A great razor, well balanced, I am a first time straight razor user and this was a great beginner razor and possibly for experienced users as well. You wont be disappointed with getting this razor. This makes shaving fun and not a chore.
