  1. Great Product - One minor complaint

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Mar 2017

    Great Razor the ball end razor is a 5 out of 5
    The case is made great. Only complaint I have is that I've seen these razor cases with the little mirror. It would have made the set a little more authentic. Other than that great product


  2. WW1 RAZOR SET

    Posted by Michael Harper on 8th Feb 2017

    A great little shaver. The case is well made and holds the razor as it should, very neat, a must for all shaving enthusiasts.


  3. Good Quality, but Materials need an Upgrade

    Posted by Alexander Luciani on 10th Jan 2017

    This is a neat little kit, and it makes a wonderful collector's item or gift for a WWI history buff. I have only one beef: the material used for the case. It's made from cloth-wrapped fiberboard, and while it won't easily come apart, I would love to see this item made from canvas or the more appropriate cotton twill. It looks the part but just doesn't feel authentic.


  4. razor fine, case not

    Posted by GC on 29th Nov 2016

    The razor itself is as advertised. As we've come to except and appreciate from Razor Emporium, it's a very nicely restored Old Type Ball End from the WWI era. Judging from the serial number on the baseplate, the razor I received in the kit dates from 1918. A big problem is the case. If it is an accurate replica, then the original design was functional crap: the three elastic holders are so loose that the handle, baseplate, and head cap clang around in it. These holders can't be adjusted, and so everything also quickly falls out through the side flaps, which can't be properly secured to the top of the case. In making replicas, I'd suggest modifying them slightly so that they can function.


  5. AWESOME PIECE OF HISTORY

    Posted by Maximos Pyrovetsis on 25th Mar 2016

    Even if was a replica it would be a great item to reminiscent that era but it is the real thing! Imagine that as you shave you became part of it
