    COMMENTS:

    From the reviews I almost did not buy but for the price what could I lose? At the least as a re-enactor I would have a good looking addition to my haversack. The first thing I did was shave hair off my arm! I am very satisfied! It opens up too easily but that can be fixed by keeping it in a cloth tube as a case.

    COMMENTS:

    Thought I would get an entry level razor to hone my shaving skills but I wound up with a shaver that challenges my honing skills. This unit requires and additional investment of a good set of hones typically in 1000, 4000, 8000 grit varieties plus a good strop that is wide enough ($75-100 more). The razor renew strop from here is meant to touch up cartridge razors but it can be used if you have the time.
    Took many hours of honing to set the bevel correctly, stropped and re-honed for a week straight so it will cut whiskers at the toe only which makes a nice cut in the skin at the same time. Will give it a little more work to see if it will come around before it gets the boot. FWIW I applied the same hone and strop to a pocket knife and it shaves better than this thing. I shop Duluth for many quality products. I am quite disappointed with this one.

    COMMENTS:

    I am still hoping this razor will work. It looks good, but I can't get it sharp enough. I have horned it, stroped it, with poor results. I am not new to straight razor shaving. I purchased my first straight razor, over forty years ago, from a union 76 truck stop. I like the way the new razor feel in my hand compared to my old razor.

    This razor can't cut butter

        COMMENTS:

        I bought this razor because I wanted to save on money. I read the comments that it didn't cut but figured that the reviewers didn't know what they were talking about, and that they didn't hone it. Well I took my razor to a professional knife sharpener and he even couldn't get it sharp. The blade is made in China and is not thin enough to cut hair. Thinking that it may have had something to do with hair texture we tried it with people who had straight hair and coarse hair and it still didn't work. SAVE YOUR MONEY. DON'T BUY THIS RAZOR
