  1. So So 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2018

    Don’t believe I received the Gold Dollar razor, and definitely not shave ready. Visible rust on the razor and nicks in the edge when looking through 10X loupe.

  2. Nice kit to get your feet wet 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jun 2018

    I ordered my DE starter kit from Razor Emporium and wanted to give a straight razor a try. Because I had most of the items already (bowl, soap, brush, etc), I decided on the Give It A Try kit. Matt was kind enough to swap out one of the items because I already had one of them. Great Customer Service on his part! I've only used the razor a few times on the weekend, but I was very pleased with the razor. I can assure you that mine came shave ready.

  3. Not impressed 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2018

    Was a little disappointed in the handle of the blade, not as solid as I had hoped and the blade itself had grinder marks up and down the bottom edge. The holder falls short seeing as the blade falls out regularly sometimes opening as it does. I was hoping for one the closed loops with a small heel holder that keeps it in place and not sliding on my counter. Also a sample of the pre/post woild have been nice as well.The brush was nice in their defense.

  4. Excellent kit and service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Apr 2018

    I bought the “give it a try” set. I am impressed with the quality I received. The razor is nice, the samples are great. I went ahead and ordered a full tube of cream, and razor emporium actually called to let me know it was out of stock and let me substitute. I definitely recommend this kit!

  5. Good set 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2018

    For someone who wants to get into straight shaving this is good introduction to it, the pre lather , shaving balm and after shave cream all complement each other and your skin very well. The only thing is my straight razor didn't come shave ready and I had to strop it but other than that great kit.

  6. Best. Beginner. Kit. Ever! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Mar 2018

    As previously stated, thoroughly enjoyed my first shave with a straight razor and after not knowing where to go or what to buy I am thoroughly satisfied with my purchase from Razor Emporium!

  7. The kit that's go you covered 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jan 2018

    The "Most Recommended" kit has everything you will need to get you cutting those whiskers with that straight razor. The kit comes with quality products and a in house crafted strop that gets the job done.

  8. Everything you need for a start! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jan 2018

    The bundle is perfect for starters like me, I especially love the shaving cream and the brush, however I found that the blade needs more sharpening, I didn't really get the closest shave that I hoped for, but I'm hoping maybe after few rounds of honing on that leather strap this might change. Anyway it's still a good deal.

  9. Very happy birthday present 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Nov 2017

    My wife got this for me and I love it. Very glad it came with the travel strap. Definitely a good strap to practice on. I never thought it was so easy to cut the strap. I would very much recommend this starter kit.

  10. Highly recommend, worth every penny 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Nov 2017

    I just got my straight razor kit today and used it for the first time. I got the most recommended and the razor was definitely shave ready and it was an awesome experience! After watching their youtube videos i felt more than ready to shave with the razor and i didn't even cut myself in the slightest. The company itself is very helpful. It took awhile to ship because they were out of the leather strop that was supposed to come, but they got in contact with me and were very helpful in figuring out how to fix the issue. Highly recommend putting the money into getting the kit, you will not be disappointed.
