Great product, smooth shave
Purchased

This shave was way better than my Gillette razor. I typically hate shaving but this product makes you actually want to shave. It feels great in your hand and I didnt get any razor bumps or feel the razor against my skin.

Best razor I've owned

Everything about this razor is perfect the weight, length, grip and design. Not too mention Baxter sells this razor with a set of 5 Derby razors and it all comes in an awesome box to store razor and razor packs. Would recommend this razor to anyone looking to change from the 4 blade disposables to a classy single blade. The shave is just as close and doesn't dent my pocket would give this product 6 stars if I could

New shaving experience
Purchased

I have been using this razor for about a month now and I have enjoyed the different shaving experience. The weight of this razor is nice compared to the super light plastic cartridge razors. I also enjoy that it is so cheap to experiment with different brands of blades.

Love it!
Purchased

This Razor is well made, and gives a smooth shave. I was apprehensive about using a safety razor, but really its not that much more complicated than a cartridge. Actually feels smoother. And save money on blades!

Bought this for my husband. He loves it!!! This is a great value and the product is very well made. It really provides a close shave.

NOTE: Also had to purchase brush, cream, and aftershave.
If you buy make sure you see the instructions, this is not to be used as a multi-blade razor. :)

Great product, and great way to save $
Purchased

Just had my best shave ever with this! (The key is short strokes.) Great weight to the razor and a nice feel to it. This will save me a lot of money by not having to spend ~$30 each time I get replacement razors for my old Gillette.

Awesome, awesome razor
Purchased

This is the first time I've ever used a safety razor and so glad I got this one. I followed the instructions on the website (highly recommend checking that out before you use it.) Great close shave and looking forward to saving the $ on blades.

New Razor
Purchased

I bought this razor because I was spending a ton of money on blades. I've really enjoyed using this razor and haven't bought new blades for it yet. I've used 3 blades in 3 months which has pretty much saved me the upfront cost of the razor. A safety razor has a little learning curve to it but with the proper pre-shave oil and shave cream I get an extremely close shave with little to no razor burn.

User friendly
Purchased

I bought this for my husband who has always had trouble with ingrown hairs to the point of us doing minor surgery in the bathroom:/. We had done a lot of research about straight edge razors and finally settled on this one. I watched him use it for the first time and couldn't believe how easy it worked. A few minor nicks, which is expected at first but no more ingrown hairs or razor burn. Great investment. Thank you birchbox for featuring such a quality product:)

A whole new level of shaving
Purchased

I purchased this safety razor as a Valentine gift for my husband. I could not imagined how much he now enjoys shaving. He has even convinced others in his office to shave with a safety razor. Hands down the best home shave he has experienced. At 52 he now looks forward to the extra feeling of pampering by taking a step back to an old fashioned shave
