    Well Worth It!

    Posted by Ryan C. on 22nd Jan 2020

    I've been toying with the idea of trying straight razor shaving for years now and finally stumbled on this kit. I think you can't go wrong with this kit at this price point. I got the "most recommended" and am very pleased. The razor was definitely shave ready and all the items seem to be of good quality. I did also buy an extra stand to hold the razor and brush after having tried it and deciding I will stick with it. I hope the stand will help keep the razor dry and free of any rust.
    I must say, I was nervous. The prospect of holding a straight razor to my neck was daunting, but it's not nearly as scary as it seems once you try it. I've also been very pleased with how quickly I'm getting the hang of shaving with it. It definitely gives me a very smooth shave and I just like having that connection to the past, shaving the way guys did out here in the West 150 years ago.
    Also two tips from a beginner: keep the razor as sharp as possible and work on getting a good lather that won't dry out on your face. I soak the brush for a few minutes before adding cream to the bowl. I found the brush just sucks everything up like a sponge otherwise. I also highly recommend Razor Emporium's YouTube videos.

    A very nice starter set. Not too expensive and a good way to see if this is something you might enjoy.

    Excellent Starter Kit!

    For such a paltry cost, this razor set gives a surprisingly accessible first-dive into straight razor shaving. The razor itself is not 'cheap' as much as it is 'economical', though it is Chinese steel, and it can shave right out of the box.
    TLDR; if you were even slightly interested in trying a straight razor , this is the set for you!

    You get what you pay for and more. First time straight razor shaver and I love these products. The razor ships ready to shave unlike 2 other razors I ordered from other places.

    Best Bang For Buck

    Posted by Doug on 21st Aug 2019

    When I made the decision to try my hand at shaving with a straight razor, I did my homework and this is the purchase I made. I went with The Essentials because I could comfortably swallow the loss if I didn't enjoy it but it came with everything I'd need for a long time to come if I did enjoy it. The quality of each item is above par with, maybe, the exception of the plastic brush stand (that's okay because I made my own stand). I think it would be nice if the Gold Dollar razor was a 5/8 but it has proven to be a decent beginner blade nonetheless. The brush is great quality and produces a good lather. The strop is my favorite item. It's quality is top shelf and being 3" across makes it so easy to use. I'll definitely be investing in a second razor (a 5/8 Dovo or H. Boker for sure) as I can easily see how a smaller blade would be easier to maneuver around certain parts of the face. One thing is for certain, this kit is worth every penny. I can pretty much guarantee that Razor Emporium will be getting more of my money in the future.

    Excellent intro kit

    Has everything you need. All the tools work well, and the price is good. Make sure you give the razor an extra stropping or three before the first use!
