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.

This is a fabulous razor! The quality is out of this world! You can't beat the warranty either! Many will think the price is high, but considering this razor can become a family heirloom, it is well worth it! I consider this razor to be the modern "Gillette Fatboy" !! I couldn't be happier! I may actually purchase another one to pass along!
After hearing many glowing reviews on this razor, I decided to invest in it. The razor's got heft and feels solid in the hand. I heard that Matt had tested this razor with a Gillette Perma-Sharp blade, so, that is what I used for my first shave with this razor. I had a very smooth and comfortable shave as a result. This is a beautiful and quality piece to have in your den. My only nit pick is that the finish is not 100% perfect. I could still detect some micro scratches and dings on certain angles of light. That said, I don't think any CNC-ed piece could be perfectly finished without painstakingly polishing it. I don't even feel it and it didn't effect the quality of the shave.
When removing it from the box, I quickly noticed the razor head is covered by something that looks a lot like stubble. The staff swiftly clarified that it is, in fact, lint from the packaging and NOT stubble. Just thought I would mention that to any fellow shavers that would have a similar experience.
I compared this razor to my 46-47Gillette Aristocrat, SuperSpeed Red Flair Tip, Parker Slant, Rockwell 6C, and Vikings Blade Emperor Augustus. For my skin type, the Ambassador outperformed the Parker Slant. The Slant is too harsh on my sensitive skin areas. Compared to the rest, I could not tell a difference between the shaves. The advantage the Ambassador has over the Gillette's is the ability to adjust the aggressiveness. I crank it up to 6 to shave my face and shape my coarse beard. It is like a hot knife through butter where the non-adjustable type takes a few blade buffs to prevent tugging. When compared to the Emperor Augustus, which is adjustable, the performance was the same but the quality of the products differ. The Augustus has a coating that has begun to peel beneath where the razorblade is placed. The Ambassador does not have this problem since it is all stainless with a lifetime guarantee. There are much cheaper razors available that provide a great shave. If you can afford this product, it should last a lifetime and will provide a shave as good as any razor out there.
The REX Ambassador is a superb razor. I've added this razor to my rotation and am very pleased with the results. Aesthetically strong, but where it excels is the shave. Comparable or better than anything in my rotation for its' shaving prowess.
Review of Rex Ambassador Razor
I have been looking at the Rex Ambassador Adjustable DE Razor for several months, either on line or video reviews. I was impressed, so I finally placed my order with Razor Emporium. When I received my new Rex Ambassador DE Adjustable razor it was well packed in Rex Supply new box which protected the razor during shipment. Very impressed. In looking at and holding the Razor, I was very impressed on how well the Razor was finished, the weight and the feel of the Razor. The machining, fit and finish are just outstanding. So, on to using my new Razor. I have been shaving for 50 + years and have a little practice on using a DE Razor. Shaving with the Rex Adjustable Razor, I was worried about using too aggressive blade so I used different blades and they were OK. I went back to my favorite blade which is a Feather blade and I found the perfect match for me. The Rex Razor is so well made it is just a pleasure to shave with. I must say, I have used a lot of Razors during my lifetime but the Rex Ambassador DE Razor is the best and in my opinion money well spent for the shave quality of the Razor.
This is a well made Razor worth your Hard earned money. I have one regret, I didn’t buy it sooner.
Great razor very nice, quality made
After reading so many reviews about this razor I decided to take the plunge and order my own. Immediately upon opening the beautifully designed box I saw how high quality the craftmanship of this razor is.
It feels premium and well weighted, well engineered and designed. The customer service is excellent, I had the pleasure of my email correspondences being dealt with by Matt. He was very friendly and helpful.
For my first have I tried the razor with Vokshod blades on setting #4 and it felt extremely uncomfortable and lots of tugging, this really disappointed me. Half way through the shave I switched back to my trusted Astra SPs and the razor performed much better. Maybe I had a bad batch of Voskhod blades, not sure. I will give them a go again, but if they do not agree with me then I will stick to Astra blades.
Otherwise I am very happy with my Rex Ambassador and look forward to many year of happy shaving with it. I recommend anyone to just buy one, it is worth the price. If I had known about this razor at the beginning I would not have wasted money buying cheaper razors.
Well done Matt & team, this is a masterpiece!
I recently purchased the Rex Ambassador and would rate my purchase experience along with the razor 5 stars. The product arrived in just a few days from order and I am super impressed with the quality. Like many have said, this razor will likely outlast you and can be something to pass down. In regards to the shave, it delivers as advertised. I use a 2.5 setting with 1 pass for standard shaves. I have sensitive skin and it is efficient but not too aggressive for me at 3 or below. Overall, it is well worth the money if you are looking for a razor that will last you a lifetime.
Outstanding update to theGillette 195 Fatboys I normally use. The "no stops" adjustment allows fine tuning that takes some getting use to but the craftsmanship is on a level just not seen on many products these days. Worth every dollar!
