A reasonable quality Gold Dollar
Just received my Rigarazor from Sergej. It is a classic 9/8 replica of an old Sheffield wedge with dark horn scales and brass bullseye washers. It arrived yesterday packaged in a beautiful display/travel box. Tried it out last night and was very pleased with the thin bevel and keen shaving edge. It feels great in my hand and was very easy to strop. The tungsten steel seems very similar to the fine Sheffield carbon steel of old and understand from others that it will keep a fine edge. The...
Received my 7/8 barbers notch Damascus steel with bronze on spine razor. Jacob is amazing in his creativity. His workmanship is exceptional and he is easy to work with. Great feel and balance and shaves smooth.
A very nice shavette from Creative Edge. It has a premium feel when realising that the wooden handle is handmade and it has been well polished with attention to detail and there is a screw as the pivot pin to adjust how the shavette folds. It uses the butterfly blade holding mechanism with laser written Creative Edge London logo on the clasp. The point and edge are very firm and the blade will not fall off even if the clasp is open. The tang is long enough for my little finger. In...

This is a barber razor or Shavette that takes injector or mini-shaper blades. It has a wide shank and tang so you have better control of the angle of the blade when you shave. It has become the only Shavette I care to use.

My first shavette, been using this for almost 1 month now. Still happy with it. Weight is good, coming in at an arm pleasing 55grams (approx 2oz).... not so light as it feels like a toy, but not so heavy you fight for full control during the tricky bits (ATG on neck for example). The overall look is a minimal clean, almost surgical appearence that may upset the expectations of someone wanting a more "traditional" look.... butr personally I like that a lot. On the subject of...

Got this today, after much looking aroud for references on the internets for it.... very hard to find one, aside from amazon reviews. Well, having just finished using this after 3 days of stubble growth, I can honestly state that I am very pleased with it. It's quite a light little thing (just around the 30g mark - almost 20g less than my other shavette). However, this means that it is quite a manoeuvrable blade. Construction is not flashy, it's not going to turn heads with it's...

This is the same product as the Shavette sold in Europe as Bluebeard's Revenge. It is well made, holds the 1/2 DE blade tight. Very balanced, easy to control blade provided you have experience with a shavette.

Feather Artist Club DX Non Folding Japanese Style Disposable Blade Straight Razor Over many years of straight razor shaving I have found use for disposable blade straights, both as travel razors, and fill ins before I took up honing. With many western style folding straights in my collection I decided to venture out into a non folder. I did so with trepidation as I couldn't envision success given how I use my folding straights. I decided to try a Feather Artist Club DX. The review I...

Sometimes reading reviews and searching the net for razor images misleads one into passing over true gems. I had been at Menessentials, on Danforth, in Toronto looking for a new straight. Seth, the Directing Manager, told me about a Dovo Desert Ironwood he had. Having seen a negative review on B&B by Joel I didn't give the Ironwood consideration opting for a Bergischer Lowe instead. Since then, my enabling wife returned to Menessentials to look at another razor. She also checked out the...

Several months ago I decided to expand my accumulation of straights from five to fourteen, give or take. After much searching on the forums I thought four or five Wackers could find a place in my rotation. I set out to buy a blonde horn "Gadsden" 15/16 notch point for an initial evaluation of both a vendor and the Wacker product. I wanted the blade factory fresh. If it were not shave ready I would address the matter with my Shaptons. In due course I received a dark horn...
