Rex Supply Co. presents “The Ambassador,” the company’s premier double edge safety razor that customizes your shaving experience in both closeness and comfort. This product was developed by wet shaving enthusiasts to deliver a fully customizable shaving experience. Whether this is your first double edge safety razor or you’re a long time-wet shaver looking for an elevated experience, The Ambassador delivers a clean, close shave without the tugging, pulling and skin irritations commonly found with multi-blade razors.
When you first hold The Ambassador you’ll immediately notice its quality. This double edge safety razor is manufactured from marine-grade stainless steel for maximum durability and ease-of-use. It is perfectly weighted and balanced and features a “Sure Grip” handle that makes the razor easy to hold, even when wet.
The Ambassador is infinitely adjustable, making it easy to find the best possible blade exposure for your skin. Just turn the integrated dial up for down to adjust the amount of blade gap for a milder or more aggressive shave. It is fully compatible with any double edge blade, giving you lots of options and combinations to “dial-in” a consistently perfect shaving experience. After just a few passes, you’ll find the razor glides across the skin almost effortlessly, while leaving behind a noticeably soft, clean and fully groomed path.
The Ambassador razor is “Made in the USA” and designed for a lifetime of use. Each razor features an individual serial number and a manufacturing code that adheres to the classic Gillette® product dating system. This razor comes with a lifetime warranty.

I replaced my Merkur Progress with the Rex Ambassador for several reasons. First, all stainless construction vs plated. Second, thinner head for easier shaving around the nose. Third, a more rigid blade mount reduces chatter. I am completely satisfied with the switch regardless of the price. My shaves have been closer with no nicks and less irritation. I have found my one razor.
My second and last adjustable. Well made feels good in the hand and has great balance. Feather on 1.5 Voshkod on 2.5 definitely high quality and well engineered.
Top of razor doesn't glide smoothly on skin, causing frequent nicks. Matte finish is probably to blame. Otherwise, it would be a fine razor.
This razor is just amazing all across the board. All through the adjustment range, it provides smooth, irritation free shaves with no blade chatter, and it's predictable. It's really a cruise control razor once you get used to it heft. It's built very well, and it shows. I also use this razor for head shaves, and you need a confident razor to shave over the contours and soft spots on your head. This razor does it effortlessly, BBS all day long, 2 passes on the head, 2-3 on the face. Matt and his team really, really did their homework on making this razor great. The only thing I'm looking for now is a matte black version of this razor, maybe with a black leather case and matching stand and black shirt. I would love to see that!
I purchased the rex about a month ago and I must say that out of all the razors I have tried this is by far the best razor that gives a close smooth shave. So far it has taken every blade that I have and provided me with a great shave every time. So far I also have not experienced a single weeper and I shave 2-3 times a week. I am happy that this is made out of 316L Stainless Steel as I plan to pass this to my son when he gets older so that he can enjoy reliable quality shaves as well.
I started wet shaving in January of 2010 with a Merkur Vision. I thought that was a great razor until it broke(manufacturers defect) 4 years later. I replaced it with a Merkur Futur. I replaced that with a Timeless Stainless Steel Razor on September 2017. Then I got the Timeless in titanium version in November of 2017. Then in January of 2018 I ordered the Tatara Masamune from Portugal. Then February 2018 I ordered The Rex(778N1). Since I replaced the Merkurs with the Timeless I have not used them since then. My plan was to eventually get the Tatara in the black version, the Blackbird, and the Feather razor in the future. At this point I am having second thoughts since I don't use the Tatara, and the two Timeless razors that much anymore. And if I get the Feather, Blackbird, and Tatara Black in the future I fear that the same thing will happen. The Rex is definitely a beautifully handcrafted instrument. I look at it lovingly when I am in the shave den the way an art lover would look at Mona Lisa or the Sistine Chapel, or the way a car enthusiast would look at a Porsche 911 Turbo S or a Rolls Royce. I still force myself to use the other razors every now and then since I did pay a lot of money for them but do it grudgingly since I don't want to not use The Rex. Owning The Rex for me feels like I have joined an exclusive club. As one reviewer said, it may have a cult following. Just got the matching stand for it and a couple of Rex t-shirts. Will get more though. Will also get the travel case for the Rex soon. I am hoping that Matt would perhaps create a matching shave bowl for the Rex in the light blue color, Rex coffee mugs, and perhaps Klean Kanteen in light blue with Rex on it. It really feels like belonging to a shaving fraternity or exclusive shaving club. I tip my hat to Matt and the crew.
I bought the rex, that never arrived. Got no answer to my message, I sent to razor emporium, because of the missing item
I actually tried the original version of the REX Ambassador and found it way too harsh to the point where I even returned it. After hearing it had seen a few improvements, I decided to give it another go. Wow, I'm glad I did! Not only is this a fantastic shaver, it looks incredible. The fit and finish are impeccable. Couldn't be happier that I tried it again!
