Our experience with razors has inspired a desire to create the best razor possible. We have used the highest marine-grade stainless steel that is corrosion resistant and so advanced it requires specialized machining. We have continued the Gillette date code system (2017 = M) and have included serial numbers for quality control and product registration. We have put years of passion into designing the best razor so you can have the best shaving experience.
Shaving with an Ambassador is smooth and efficient - it's very easy to find the right blade angle. And because it's infinitely adjustable, getting the perfect shave is just a matter of turning the dial up or down for a closer or more mild shave. The weight is hefty and balanced right below the adjustment dial - perfect for letting the razor do the work. The Sure Grip knurled handle makes holding onto this razor easy and comfortable - especially in wet conditions.

After using for the past 10 shaves I am glad that I now possess one the the best razors ever. The design and craftsmanship are incredible... the shave it delivers is smooth... no nicks... no stubble... a shave you have always been looking for.. and now in my control. Everything is well designed from the easy of loading the blades.. the blade angle of use... the handle grip... the ease of adjusting for blade exposure... every shave has been a dream... even my girlfriend noticed and complimented the shave.... it is that good

First shave with the REX and I'm absolutely amazed and blown away. The ingenious way the top cap clamps the blade down will shave you without any blade rattling even with the cup not fully tightened.
The shave was incredibly smooth and efficient. I started on setting 4 and went up to 6 mid-shave to tackle the chin area where my growth is the toughest.
Then back to 4 for the second and final mixed pass, which gave me the most irritation free shave ever.
Indeed the REX is a dead finger DE and will displace most of my rotation DE's & SE's.
Thank you Matt for creating the perfect razor.

i like dis razor iz nice yes // sharp grip . slim head fits under a big shnoz.heavy .easy read # to adjust . knob don't fall out during a blade change so it's a two peice razor not three . got agressive cut with polsilver blades haven't gone past#3 setting 3 is like 4 on my gillette toggle and fatboy not attempt use feathers yet easy wash out i just unscrew 3 turns and the head and blade flops loose to flush out the internals . half star off for the semi-loose adjuster knob tends to move during use . only thing with these heavy metal razors is that my sink basin is getting beat up and razors getting dings on the heads . need to find a curved round block plastic or hardwood to fit in the basin to tap on while shaving . i dont run the tap constant.

I have been putting off purchasing this razor mainly because of the price point but also to get some user feedback on its pros and cons. There don't seem to be many cons as far as I can tell. I pulled the trigger and it did not disappoint. I've only had three shaves with it and it is taking me a bit to dial in the right blade gaps for a 3 pass shave. I started out on 4 which seemed a bit too aggressive for even a two day growth of medium coarse beard. This last shave I had it at 3.5 then 2.5 then 1.5 for my final pass. Extremely close and comfortable although each person will have to find their own sweet spot or zone where it works best for them. The razor is a beauty to behold and extremely well-balanced with some good weight to it which I prefer. I could tell right away that a lot of thought went into producing a razor of this quality. If you're balking at the price, save up your pennies or put it on your birthday or Xmas wish list. It will be worth the wait.

I was debating about this razor for quiet some time. It’s replicating an old vintage razor but with modern technology and stainless steel. Then I though to my self it’s designed by Matt he deals with vintage razors day in and day out. I said to my self he must know what he is doing. So I pulled the trigger and I bought it. After my first pass I was absolutely sold on this razor for many reasons. Build quality, efficiency of he shave while remaining absolutely smooth. And the best feature of it all it’s adjustable and of course made in the USA. absolutely superb job. And what’s interesting it was done with own capital not public’s money. He took a big risk. This razor is nothing short of a reward. Superb job Matt.

Used a 1940 Feather SE that my father gave me at 16 yrs. Then a 1953 DE dad gave me. Now have same problem he had, hands shaking. The Rex fixed that. It's weight and precision along with Kai blade set at 3 did the job just fine.

Let me start out by saying as the title says that this razor is pure perfection. I have began using the Ambassador exclusively in my shave den and it continues to give me the best shaves of my life. The proof for me came when I tried a feather blade with it. I have never been able to comfortably use feather blades in any of my other razors both adjustable and non-adjustable. I have a very sensitive face and the Rex Ambassador tamed the feather blade. It made it super comfortable to use on my face. The design of the razor is simply beautiful. It has some elements that remind you of a vintage razor but the 316L stainless steel reminds you that this is an adjustable made for the 21st century. The balance point being directly under the adjustment nut makes it super easy to hold the razor in the perfect position and find the correct blade angle. Anyone who has ever watched the youtube videos that Matt makes for Razor Emporium can tell you his knowledge of razors is immense and when I heard he was creating his own razor I knew I had to have it. The attention to detail in the Rex Ambassador is second to none and unlike anything I've ever seen in a razor. I've heard some people knock the price tag of the Ambassador. Honestly after using this razor I would have been willing to pay double the asking price. There honestly is real value in paying a higher price for higher quality materials and craftsmanship. As someone who has used dozens of razors varying in price I can tell you that materials and craftsmanship does matter and this razor is the best one of them all. Great job to Matt and everyone else at Rex Supply. I cannot wait to see what new products fall under the Rex Supply line in the future.
