First Time User, Reasonable Success
Purchased

This is literally my first ever DE razor, and I used it for my first time with reasonable success. I need to relearn how to shave with this kind of razor as it requires a different technique from what I have used with normal multi-blade disposable razors since I started shaving, but that will come with practice.

I am also planning on trying out different blades, but for right now all I have are the Derby blades that this razor came with.

With all that said I was able to shave for the first time with far better results then I expected. My face was easy and I ended up with a very smooth shave with no cuts at all. My neck is where I tend to have issues. It is very sensitive and has some small bumps from ingrown hairs and such. I still got a smooth shave, but ended up with lots of small nicks and cuts over the bumps.

I learned a lot from that first shave though, and I believe that I can find blades that will work better for my face. Over all I am very happy that I made this purchase and I believe that it will only get better from here.

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.
