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.

Out of my 36 de razors; the Rex Ambassador is by far the best of them all. Not only does it outperform my modern DE razors; it also out performs my vintage ones as well. I own several Gillette razors including the Fatboy, Slim Adjustable, 46-47 Aristocrat and a 1920 Old Type. Rex is better than them all!

I have a pretty robust collection of over 100 razors, some new, even a wolfman and a 6s. Also have a ton of vintage adjustables and still love having them. If I had to stick with only one razor this would be it. It is the only one that I keep in the bathroom full time because it is the most comfortable and easy to use razor I own.
It is amazing to think that these are artisan made. The level of precision is amazing. The weight distribution is perfect. I know it is expensive but having steel custom machined is a very expensive process. This is not expensive because it is rare or because it's made in limited quantities. This is expensive because it was expensive to make. The quality is obvious when you use it.
I intentionally waited a while before writing a review. I wanted to be sure I was not just excited about my new shiny thing. Nope.... If I couldn't buy another one I would not sell mine for even twice the price.

Sorry Gillette and all others! I shaved for the first time yesterday with my new Ambassador. I always expect a learning curve with a new razor. I had read all about the razor, and suggestions on settings etc. I face prepped well, popped in a new Personna, and set the razor at 1.5. I was sure that this would be low, due to my love of more aggressive razors. I say without hesitation it was the finest shave of my life. There was no irritation (which I am prone to) and no stubble left behind. My jawline and neck which are problem areas were flawless. I have many razors, all of which are high end, and nothing else comes close to the Ambassador....even at 1.5 setting!

Shaved with the Rex Ambassador for the first time today. Had it set on 3. Very efficient and smooth. I use a Muhle R41 most of the time, and this morning's shave was very comparable. And the Rex Ambassador is a beautiful razor. Well done!

This razor appears to be well made and it has a decent amount of heft to it, which I enjoy. I've only about 10 months experience with DE razors, but I do notice it shaves better than my other razor (Edwin Jagger). It's more comfortable, the extra weight makes it easier for me to control, and the result is a markedly closer shave. I have it set only to 2 (of 6), but I find that is aggressive enough for me. If I was looking to find fault, my only quibble would be that the adjustment ring turns nearly a full 360 degrees, so the extreme settings both indicate to nearly the same spot.

Ordered an N3 model (recent batch). Really well built razor. No issues with loose adjustments some of the reviews of early models experienced. Shave is very smooth. Would compare smoothness to an ATT slant (S1) razor. Easy to dial up efficiency. Razor very efficient after 3 setting. Blade feel pretty minimal until about setting of 4.5-5. Excellent razor. Shaves great and easy to find range of cutting angle. I can’t quite put my finger on it but razor does appear to completely remove all soap/cream and slickness on face in one pass - even soaps with excellent residual slickness. I don’t really know why this happens but this is not a razor I’d recommend for excessive buffing. however even on low key settings the efficiency of the razor is high as it removes most facial hair in a pass along with the soap, thus buffing passes were not needed for me. All in all very satisfied

All the glowing reviews here attest to the quality of this razor. It’s built like a tank and is made from durable material. An heirloom piece.
I have not found a blade and setting yet that shaves me well.
Razors I own that shave me well:
Merkur Mergress w/sharp smooth blade such as Lab Blue or Gillette 7 O’Clock Green
Rockwell 6s with pretty much any blade
RR Game Changer with smooth sharp blade
Timeless Bronze with Shark or Derby
Feather AS-D2 with sharp blades like Feather, PolSilver or PermaSharp
The Ambassador has a less forgiving blade reveal than these common razors. It is good for the vast majority of guys.
I can get a BBS out of the Rex. I just have to take twice as long with it to get the same results as a carefree cruiser like the Game Changer.
Here’s hoping I find the right blade to unlock the potential of this fabulous razor for me.

My new 2018 model arrived a couple weeks ago and has been my only shave tool since. Impeccably machined and assembled, the Ambassador has functioned flawlessly. It is a treat for the eyes as much as a terrific tool. In my short experience to date, there has been no slippage of the adjustment in use as sometimes mentioned in earlier models. I am enjoying it very much.
