    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

    Posted by Robert on 25th Jun 2019

    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!

    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

    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.
