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 or 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 think Vintage Gillette slim better
This has become my favorite adjustable razor, solidly built and I love its weight. I am hoping for more versions in the future (longer handle, butterfly)
My biggest complaint is the dial for the settings moves too easy. It should click. Over priced! I prefer my Mekur Futur.
I give the Ambassador 5 stars for build quality, but only 1 star for adjustability and usefulness. I have it set as low as it can go (less than 1 on the dial) and it is still way too aggressive. I tried several different blades and found a couple that were better. But none were as good as the same blades in my vintage Gillette razor. This looks like it could be a simple fix that should have been dealt with before these were sold. They obviously were not tested after the initial design. I wasted my money; I should have bought another Gillette.
Love the razor - the feel, the right “heft,” the almost limitless adjustability. It did take several shaves with this razor to get it dialed in for me - but once I got that down - I can use it with just about any DE Blade. Happy with this purchase!
I love everything about the design cues & build, from the knurling on the handle (best I've ever used) and the sleek head. With proper technique, the vast majority of shavers should find this to be a highly competent tool at worst. At best, a top tier razor (not just adjustable, mind you, overall top tier). Congrats to RE/Rex Supply for such a successful release.
Been using a refurbished, rhodium plated Fatboy for a few years and have been rewarded with close, comfortable shaves. Thought I'd give the Ambassador a try. BIG MISTAKE. My first (and last) shave, with the razor set to "1" (mildest) resulted in bleeding weepers on my cheeks, jaw line, chin, and throat, and a good sized chunk of skin lopped off the tip of my chin. It was a week before my face had healed enough to shave again. I sold it the next day on Ebay. Defective? Must be, since an adjustable set on its mildest setting should never do that much damage.
This is a beautiful razor, both in design and workmanship. It’s beautifully balanced and provides a nice, smooth shave. I have other DE razors (Timeless, FeatherAS-D2, Merkur Futur and an older IKON) all of which are very nice razors, but I would have to put the Rex Ambassador above them all. Well done! Also, thanks for the very fast shipping.
I purchased the Rex Ambassador a little over a month ago and I can honestly say that it is THE BEST razor I've ever shaved with and I've been shaving for 40 years and own a small collection of DE razors! It's a super efficient razor. I wasn't sure about the blade exposure when I first looked at it, but once I shaved with it it all made sense! I started out with a Feather blade (my normal go-to blade) on a setting 3 and it was a bit too much for me as I have sensitive skin. I dialed it back to 1.5, first pass, 1.0 second pass and .75 third pass. A much better shave. I then tried a Gillette Platinum blade on the same 3 pass settings and all I can say is WOW! What an awesome shave! No nicks, no cuts, no irritation and a BBS shave! The other thing I'll say about this razor is that it gives a great shave with about any blade I put in it which I'm not accustomed to. My normal pairing thing seems to matter little with this razor so far. The razor itself is flawless, the grip is fantastic and it looks beautiful. I love the engraving and serial number as it gives it a special uniqueness. This is no doubt my new daily shaver and an heirloom that I'll pass down to my son. Thanks Matt!
