    Don't waste your time

    By Uberwolfe

    from Bolingbrook, IL

    Pros

    • None

    Cons

    • Not Sharp Enough To Use

    Best Uses

    • As A Movie Prop

    I ordered this because I wanted to move up from my Shavette and have a good old fashioned straight razor. When it delivered I tested it out. It wasn't even sharp enough to cut paper easily. I tried to strop it, it didn't even help the situation. When I buy a razor, I expect only one thing, that it is actually sharp. Shame on me for buying it. If I want a straight razor I really should just drop the money on a good one.

    Hit and miss quality?

      Cons

        Best Uses

          This is my second razor, due to the returning of my first one that came with a split in the handle right at the pivot point of the brass pin that holds the blade. Both razors came sharp enough to shave with and look very nice. Time will tell on durability.
          Is usable and Would make an excellent display item.

          By L0keman

          from Merica!

          • Easy to Sharpen
          • Extremely sharp
          • Holds an edge
          • Manly

          Cons

          • Ignorance

          Best Uses

          • daily

          I have been shaving with a straight razor for 20 years. I bought this one for travel since I have had two Dovo razors stolen while traveling. This thing shaves much better than I expected and strops up and holds an edge well. Ignore the low ratings, you can obviously see they have no clue how to even use a straight razor and probably aren't even old enough to need to shave. None of them even owned equipment to sharpen a blade, let alone hone a razor. You HAVE to strop it. Do not buy it if you do not have a strop or are buying a strop with it. It must be sharpened prior to EVERY use.

          Great straight razor!!

          By NeckcutterDan

          from Cape Girardeau, MO

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

            Cons

              Best Uses

                Buy a honing stone and a strop, or glue a piece of leather to a good piece of plywood and buy some chromium oxide. This razor is great! I was using an antique kraut & donnal but I have since replaced it with this as my daily shaver. You're not going to find a razor this good for the price anywhere else. Highly recommend.

                      By jensen_i_1775

                      from Oceanside,Ca

                      Pros

                      • Good weight
                      • Nice Look

                      Cons

                      • Not Shave Ready

                      Best Uses

                        I wanted to give straight razor shaving a try after I had it done once at a barber shop so I ordered this razor, I was impressed with the weight and look of the razor but very disappointed that it was not shave ready. Looking at the price I should have known better, but what can you do. I did have a friend of mine strop if for me and after a little work on his part it was all set and ready to go.

                        Not so much a ready razor

                        By bob

                        from Phillipsburg NJ

                        Pros

                        • Feels good in hand
                        • Seems to be durable

                        Cons

                        • Dull As A Butter Knife

                        Best Uses

                        • Practice

                        On the bright side this was much much cheaper than any other single blade razor I had been looking at. I am trying to find someone to do a professional sharpening job on it and afterwards I am sure it will be a great razor that will last for a long time. Until then it is a nice paperweight.

                          • Not Shave Ready

                          With the quality of products Duluth Trading sells, I don't know why they even have this in their inventory and catalog. POORLY made, not shave ready. Don't waste your money.

                          Not functional

                          Pros

                          • It looks really cool

                          Cons

                          • It Has A Cheap Blade
                          • Not Shave Ready

                          Best Uses

                          • Best Used As A Decoration
                          • Can't Use It To Shave

                          It looks awesome but the blade is cheap and is not sharp enough to shave with. It can be sharpened but it will cost more than the razor itself.
