Latest reviews

Pros: High quality and standard of finish.
Comes well honed.
Reasonable price.
Once honed, very comfortable to shave with.
Cons: Does not come shave-ready to my standard (normal).
After refining the edge to my shave-ready standard, this SR has been in my rotation for about 4 months so I have shaved with it about a dozen times. I find it very smooth to shave with, not quite up to my Cadman Bengall SR's but very close.

The blade takes a wicked edge off diamond pasted balsa strops. It is one of my best SR's and a pleasure to shave with.

If you want a straight razor of exceptional value for the quality, give this SR serious consideration.
