    Blown away!

    Posted by John Peacock on 20th Mar 2021

    Let me first say that I'm very new to straight razor shaving. Like this is my 2nd month doing it new. Before I bought this kit I wanted to try the replaceable straight blades first to see if I could do it. I loved it. So I ordered this modified kit and I am so glad I did! Like I said I'm very new to this and because Razor Emporium are THE BEST AT WHAT THEY DO, I will never get my supplies from anyone else! I got the Ralf Aust 5/8 and I couldn't be any happier with my whole experience. I can't speak for any other maker than Ralf Aust but, this razor came shave ready out of the box. All I did was wipe the blade, did 15 laps on the canvas strop and 20 on the leather and it was ready to go. The shave was quite slow so that I didn't cut myself but, I am blown away by this razor and by the staff of Razor Emporium! Thank you guys for such an amazing experience!

    Pretty on the nail!

    I've shaved with a safety razor for a couple years, and wanted to try a straight... but also didn't want to drop a lot of money, while at the same time not wanting a possibly dull cheap razor.

    I still have to get my technique down, but this kit is everything I hoped it would be.

    Straight Razor Kit

    Posted by Ian on 3rd Nov 2020

    I'm super happy with this kit. I got a free upgrade because they were out of the original aftershave. This is my first straight and, the blade was in perfect shape when I got it. I just cleared off a 9-inch beard and this razor took over the job from the 1/8" guard on my clippers. The razor is beautiful and worked like a dream. Thanks!

    Beginner shave kit

    Posted by Arturo Muneton on 22nd Sep 2020

    I ordered this to try out shaving with a straight razor and I have to say that this was a very good introduction! I got the cheapest kit mainly for budget reasons but it still came with multiple things that made the first experience with an actual straight razor (I used a shavette before) really enjoyable. Would highly recommend

    Exactly as described

    Matt's videos described the kit perfectly, as well as how to do my first straight razor shave without cutting my neck. Once you've got a couple of shaves done, immediately order more Proraso. You won't get more than three or four shaves out of the sample kit.

    First straight blade razor

    Posted by Bob Yzquierdo on 25th Jun 2020

    Great beginners kit. Love the way the razor cuts, I'm still a little slow with it taking my time to get use to using it. The after shave has a great feel and manly odor.... reminds me of my Dad's after shave.

    Great for a first straight razor

    Posted by Blake on 16th Jun 2020

    Other straight razors online aren’t shave ready, low quality, and not in a kit that has everything you need for a proper shave for a great price. I recently got into straight razors and now I’m restoring a few and learning to hone them but my first great straight razor was in this set.
