The Envoy Stainless Steel Double Edge Safety Razor
Rex Supply Co. introduces “The Envoy,” the company’s latest entry in the company’s critically acclaimed line of razors and shaving accessories. The Envoy is a double edge safety razor with an elegant look and a weighted feel that delivers an elevated shaving experience.
Rex Supply Co. brand razors are known to deliver a clean, close shave without tugging, pulling or skin irritations and the Envoy is no exception.It was developed by the company’s wet shaving enthusiasts to bring modern precision and premium features to the economies a fixed blade design.
At first glance, both experienced and novice wet shavers will appreciate the brilliance of the razor’s modern look, crafted in the brilliance of marine-grade stainless steel. The razor feels solid and balanced with its familiar “Sure Grip” handle that inspires confidence through control, even when wet.
The precisely machined cap, guard and handle disassemble smoothly to accommodate the shaver’s choice of most standard double-edge blades. Reassembled, the blade rests at a medium setting, the equivalent of a “3” on the company’s adjustable “Ambassador” model.
With each pass, the shaver will notice how the blade glides almost effortlessly, leaving behind a path of groomed, comfortable skin. As with most fixed razor designs, shavers are free to customize the experience through blade selection for a more or less aggressive shave.

Each features an individual serial number and a manufacturing code that adheres to the classic Gillette® product dating system. This product comes with a lifetime warranty and is designed to be fully compatible with the company’s popular Ambassador Double Edge Razor Case and Ambassador Razor Stand.

I fell in love with the design of this razor long before purchasing it. I love the modern lines and industrial aesthetic.
Lathered up with Razor Emporium’s Old School (will post a separate review on the soap and AS splash in their respective review sections) and the first thing I noticed was how nicely the Envoy fits in the hand. The grip is unbelievably solid and the blade angle is easy to find. It will take me a few more shaves to get it dialed in perfectly and I need to try a few different blades to see how they work with this razor, but I am very impressed so far. The aggressiveness could easily be characterized as a perfect “medium”, especially if you are coming from a DE89 or 34C, which I consider the benchmark in the “mild” category. This piece of affordable luxury will undoubtedly last a lifetime. Bravo!
Very happy to have purchased this razor. Everything from the packaging to the razor itself is very high quality.
Coming from a more mild razor it took a bit to get used to using no pressure. However, once I got the technique down the results are fantastic even from a two pass shave. Highly recommended.
Great materials, tolerances and quality. Smooth & efficient shave. Trully something to enjoy this hobby.
Great razor! Cuts smoothly and built with love!! Great job Matt
I'm a seasoned wet shaver of 20 years. The stainless DE I own are Weber, RR Mamba, RR Game Changer. This is at the top of the list, well done Rex! Fit and finish are top notch and tolerances are incredible. If I could only own one razor, this is it, and I've tried many.
This razor is a perfect balance of efficient and smooth. Intuitive to use and beautifully crafted. Easily a favorite razor in my collection.
This is a high quality shaving instrument. Fit and finish is impeccable. This is the razor made for everyone and will last forever.
Perhaps the best double edge razor in the market! (EXCELLENT!)
Always impressed by anything with Rex Supply brand on it. Delivers smooth shave with little to no effort. Incredible grip handle and razors weight let's you know shaving with quality product. Like the serial # + date on it, plan on passing down to my son when he gets older. Highly recommend this to upgrade shaving routine.
