Great gift, takes some practice
Purchased

I bought this for my partner as a Father's Day present. He had wanted a safety razor for quite some time. This is the perfect combination of quality and affordability. It does take some practice to get the right technique for a nice clean cut shave, but its a great investment for a truly classic gift for a classy gentleman or lady.

First safety razor
Purchased

This is a really good razor. Has a heavy feel to that makes it feel a little wieldy when you need a light touch, but it doesn't take away too much from the quality of this razor. The heaviness feels necessary so you can avoid nicking yourself too much. Stainless and well made product.

Best Razor Ever...Seriously!
Purchased

I got this razor for my boyfriend as part of his holiday present. He absolutely loves his safety razor! He personally doesn't like the razors that have multiple blades, as he claims he gets ingrown hair that way and it's harder to control the shave. This 1 blade razor is perfect for him. He's able to get as close as a shave as he wants, while contouring around his beard, as well it's quite cost effective, since you only have to buy the replacement blades, instead of a whole razor head/new razor. Great product that he uses EVERY. SINGLE. DAY!

Husband loves it
Purchased

Purchased this for my husband for Christmas hoping it would be gentler on his skin. He shaves daily and conventional razors were causing all sorts of skin issues. He loves this razor! Easy to use and works great for his sensitive skin. No razor burn, no ingrowns, no bumps, no break outs. I ordered Feather brand replacement blades because they got rave reviews on another site.

First Straight Razor
Purchased

I purchased this as a gift for my husband along with the Baxter 123 kit... He loves it! I bought this on a whim as his first ever straight razor and am so happy I did! He has tried it with several different types of razors as he has gotten more comfortable with it. Also he has commented about liking the weight of the razor in order to achieve a closer shave!

Just buy it
Purchased

If you are a wet shaver looking for a new toy then pick this up. Perfect weight. Great shave every time. Pick up some good soaps and you are set.

love it
Purchased

I bought this to replace a old safety razor and could not be more happy it looks great and functions great my only complaint is in cleaning because it kind of junks up a little but a little scrub with a toothbrush and it looks brand new again

Fantastic razor!
Purchased

This is first safety razor I've ever owned...and hopefully last. But that's a good thing! Love the rest of my Baxter products so thought I'd give this a try since I have odd skin/facial hair. Worked perfectly. Took a couple of times to get the hang of it. The quality of the razor is evident - heavy for its size, easy to load with a razor and has a sleek design (so I don't mind leaving it out). My boyfriend and I share it so time to order new blades.

I would say get a different set of blades though. Not a sharp as I thought they would be.

Great safety razor
Purchased

First time user of a safety razor. After using consistently for 2 weeks I don't have ingrown hairs. Using this combined with the Baxter badger hair brush and super close shave creme. It is a winner
