    Razor is not even close to shave ready

    Posted by Brandon on 11th Jun 2019

    The proraso products are nice but the razors edge is not sharp at all. I originally thought that i was doing something wrong so i went on you tube and watched the Razor Emporium video on honing that demonstrates hiw to tell if a razor is sharp. It said that a razor should be able to cut a free hanging hair so i tried this with one of my wife's hair from her brush and it wouldnt cut at all. The only thing it took off my face was the lather. I tried every angle and amout of pressure with no improvement and no amount of stropping helped. So i am back to my DE and am very disappointed in this product. I will say that the scales of the razor are very nice though.

    First time straight user

    Posted by Ron Horvath on 22nd Mar 2019

    Ive been wanting to get into straight razor shaving for about a year or so. Ive watched hundreds of videos. Found razor emporium and sen they offered the beginer set. I purchased it and tried it out and love it. The shave cream i wasmt a fan of the scent but it works. And the boars brush is nice, however i purchased a badger brush to use instead. The razor itself came ready to shave just as advertised. Did a 2 pass shave and it was the closest shave ive ever had. The pre shave is amazing. If new to the game i advise to also purchase a styptic pencil too. At some point you will need it. Just take your time and go slow

    not exactly as advertised

    Posted by Larry r Hendrix on 12th Mar 2019

    is that advertised as shave ready right out the box. my first shave with was very uncomfortable it pulled and tugged at my beard hairs. but after a little while on the strop it was usable.

    So So

    Don’t believe I received the Gold Dollar razor, and definitely not shave ready. Visible rust on the razor and nicks in the edge when looking through 10X loupe.

    Nice kit to get your feet wet

    Posted by Bryan Goodman on 19th Jun 2018

    I ordered my DE starter kit from Razor Emporium and wanted to give a straight razor a try. Because I had most of the items already (bowl, soap, brush, etc), I decided on the Give It A Try kit. Matt was kind enough to swap out one of the items because I already had one of them. Great Customer Service on his part! I've only used the razor a few times on the weekend, but I was very pleased with the razor. I can assure you that mine came shave ready.

    Not impressed

    Posted by JJ on 27th Apr 2018

    Was a little disappointed in the handle of the blade, not as solid as I had hoped and the blade itself had grinder marks up and down the bottom edge. The holder falls short seeing as the blade falls out regularly sometimes opening as it does. I was hoping for one the closed loops with a small heel holder that keeps it in place and not sliding on my counter. Also a sample of the pre/post woild have been nice as well.The brush was nice in their defense.
