    Comments about Jolly Good Safety Razor:

    I needed a lightweight safety razor for travel. I have had several cheap ones but they break with the banging around that goes on with International Travel. But this Razor is of the best quality. I just got back from Costa Rica where I took this one for its first trip. So far so good!

        Comments about Jolly Good Safety Razor:

        I have especially enjoyed the use of this product. I recommend shaving down with the grain of the whiskers first,Then, lather up and carefully work up the chin and face. I know it takes longer but its better than any disposable razor I have ever used in my entire life.

        The best razor I've ever had

        • Daily Use

        Comments about Jolly Good Safety Razor:

        I'm not one of those guys that has to shave every day, but when I do I want a clean shave. I've tried all of the fancy razors that promise a close shave, but they can't compare to the shave I get with my jolly good!
        The only thing that I can say bad about it is the handle is small, but if you have extra large hands like I do everything is small. I don't find it a problem.

              Comments about Jolly Good Safety Razor:

              The shaver itself is pretty nice looking and has a great feel while in use. For whatever reason, after the first shave, it wouldn't cut that close as the first shave. Perhaps a different brand of blade would help?

              I have used this razor now for about a week. I have a neatly trimmed beard and mustache. This razor is very impressive. It glides smoothly across my skin and leaves a clean shave. Using it to trim near my beard along the established lines have been very easy as the razor is well balanced and has a substantial feel to it. Installing the blade was no problem at all.

                This razor is by far the best I have used in all my years of shaving. I started out shaving with one similar when I was a teen and then moved on to the latest and greatest multiblade disposables. I will not make that mistake again. If you want a close, clean and easy shave, buy this razor.

                      This razor shaves as good or even better than my five blade razor for a heck of a lot less even when you factor in the initial cost. I have never used this old fashion style and was concerned about cutting myself but this has not been the case(so far,knock on wood...L.O.L.) I think the handle design could be improved(the imitation ivory section,maybe needs a raised design on the handle) because it becomes slick/slippery when wet giving me an uneasy feeling that I may slip an cut myself(that is why I deducted one star) but so far this has not been the case. It cuts closer than my five blade(which it seems they cheapened the blades in the last year or so to make them wear out quicker on purpose so you have to buy them more often!!!), so much so that I recommend getting a styptic pencil. All in all, I am very glad I bought this and know I will save a lot of money over the years(as long as they keep making these blades).
