    Real Deal Razor

    By Sanlyn

    from Monmouth, OR

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Beautiful design

    Cons

    • Not very sharp

    Best Uses

      I've been wanting to try a straight razor for years, but they're so expensive in specialty shops. I saw this and figured for the price I couldn't go wrong.

      It's a nice piece, but doesn't seem very sharp. Could be me not knowing what to expect. I sent feedback to Duluth, and they sent me another one, but still doesn't seem sharp. I must be missing something.

      The razor is beautiful, has a nicely crafted handle, and opens and closes very smoothly, but aside from that, I haven't been able to even remotely get a close shave from it. Most people told me I'd cut myself badly on a straight razor. Not this one, at least out of the box. I need to learn how to sharpen it.

      Been Wanting to Try One

      By Sanlyn

      from Monmouth, OR

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Good Looking
      • Nice design

      Cons

      • Sharpness

      Best Uses

      • not sure

      Been wanting a straight razor for some time. I've looked at specialty stores and they were so expensive for something I jiust wanted to try. I saw this in the Duluth catalog and thought it might be a good option. When I got it I was really disappointed with how dull the blade seemed. I wrote customer service and they sent me a second one (excellent customer service), but that one didn't seem much better. It's a beautiful instrument, but not sure how useful it will be. I probably need to look into sharpening it myself.

      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?

      By Mk

      from Fremont, indiana

      Pros

        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.

            Great razor, not for little boys

            By L0keman

            from Merica!

            Pros

            • 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.

                        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.
