    Broman

    I like pivot head SEs as well as more traditional wet shaving. However I have never used a razor which leaves soap behind after a pass. That is until I used the Broman. I expected to find whiskers missed. But they weren’t. A mystery to me. Thanks for the review. I found it a mild but interesting...

    Broman Pivot Head Razor

    I received the replacement razor today in the post. Not a bad lag time in these current troubled times. Not only that but I received another pouch, stand and blades. Apart from the initial delay in replying to me, Broman Team after-sales care has been good. I look forward to trying out a few...

    It was a feather but... even so.

    Broman Pivot Head Razor

    Finally got a reply from Broman after some prompting. They suggested the razor was closed when the blade had not been placed in it squarely, causing the flap to be sliced while closing. Not sure about that myself. Nevertheless they are sending me a replacement. That was two weeks ago. England to...

    Kickstarter. I suppose they will get to me eventually but it irks after the wait to get the thing in the first place.

    Broman Pivot Head Razor

    Folks, I had an unfortunate accident with my Broman. After about the 4th shave, I closed the lid after putting a half blade in and... a portion of the facing came off. Emailed them a month ago with no response. Not good PR at all. I’ve not been game to shave with it since. Shame. I had enjoyed...

    Broman Razor: ship to the states?

    I’m told not. However Kensurfs (YouTube post today) said he contacted them direct and arranged a shipment.

    Broman Pivot Head Razor

    I see Kensurfs had just put a video out on it. 700 odd views after the first 2 hours when I saw it. That will get the interest up.

    Broman Pivot Head Razor

    Hins I enjoy shaving with it. It is a simple no thought shave. I will keep it in my rotation. Comparable to a Core. Cheers

    Broman Pivot Head Razor

    For some reason I find the Hybrid occasionally bites me. I have had no such difficulty with the Genesis. To my mind there is no doubt the Genesis gives a closer shave than the Core. Even so, the Core gives a reasonable shave and the Hybrid a bit better than that. I find the Broman gives a...

    Broman Pivot Head Razor

    Hobart, I am not a head shaver. Can’t help you with that. However there has been no suggestion of clogging for me on my face shave. I did not have any face calving experience as Ivo did, if that is any comfort. I’ve shaved with it a few times and had mildness all the way. Cheers

    Broman Pivot Head Razor

    I’ve not used the leaf but am very familiar with the Core. First is blades’s longevity. Core uses Feathers. 2 shaves at best 3 for me. I’m now on my 3rd shave with Broman‘s blade. No sign of needing a change of blade. Second is price of blades. Feathers are about AUD$1 per blade. Broman, I am...

    That it was a DFS is encouraging. I’m used to core, hybrid and genesis so will bear your experience in mind. Will post when received and used.

    Cheers Ivo. Mine hasn’t hit the post office box yet. Thanks for the photo. It looks much like the promos portrayed it. The plastic facing was always something which interested me. Thanks for your comparison to the OneBlade and Focus. I have used Core, Hybrid and Genesis and like them...

    Broman Pivot Head Razor

    I recently recently received an update email from the Broman team. I wanted to hear that production had completed and shipping was underway. But no. The language they used was... well... shall we say... equivocal at best. The project appears to have been beset by delays since I subscribed in...
