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

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

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.
