    Comments about Classic Straight Razor:

    This razor was sharp right out of the box. I sort of expected to have to sharpen it, but it just wasn't necessary. It's got a heavy, solid feel in your hand, no sensation of a flimsy handle or blade/handle connection. The only reason I didn't give it a "5 Star" rating is that I've not had it long enough to vouch for it's durability. Check back with me in a year.

        Comments about Classic Straight Razor:

        Duluth should pull this product from their lineup. I have always trusted Duluth to offer top notch products and this is definitely something that does not live up to the quality I have come to expect from them. look up the maker of this razor and this is on many do not buy lists. Mine found its way into the garbage after I realized they put a pocket knife edge on it instead of a razor edge.

              Cant beat this for the price. I read a bunch of reviews regarding this razor was dull. Of course, this razor needs to be sharpened just as any stright razor would. I'm very pleased.

              • Blade Won't Hold Edge

              Best Uses

                Comments about Classic Straight Razor:

                Try as I might, I just cannot get a sharp enough edge to use for shaving. After one small stroke one really needs to strop the blade, but I don't want to take all day to shave. I guess for the price, what would one expect. (top quality straight razors go for $100 - $350)

                      Comments about Classic Straight Razor:

                      You all must leather strap it 50 times every time you use it. Oh yeah, up and down is once. It will take several months to get it so very sharp, you will not be disappointed. Now if you have an old belt.......sweet. I learned from genrations of staight blade shavers. Probably why I save old belts......hmmmm.
                      Stroke it up and down on the strap.
                      Facing away from you on the up stroke, then blade at you going down and away from you on the down stroke. As you get better it will fly up and down the strap.
                      Then get staight blade soap, I like the woden bowl and soap comes with it.
                      but, lots of soaps out there expand your scent.
                      Why the special soap? You ask? Regular shave foam or gell creates a suction type adhesion. Straight blade does not draw well. (Shave). Constant rewetting of straight blade..........not good.

                      The soap has awaesome scents and the blades glides down your face or up your neck.
                      Now..........you've done your 50 straps to the blade, make sure it is rised off before you strap it. Then after you strap it dont even wip it off, put drops of gun oil (light, moisture barrier) on each side Use a finger or whatever to smooth over the oil, does not take much.

                      When you know how to use something and what to expect from it makes life easier. Also grap some cheapo 2blade razors to pick up the slack till your blade rocks the shave.
                      Straight blades all come 440 grit sharp, not bad, but not the baby face shave.
                      Stay with it. ((:
                      yes......gun oil. Keeps moisture OUT!

                            Comments about Classic Straight Razor:

                            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.
