Thor Straight Razor Kit
J.C. (Port Saint Lucie, US)
Very Nice Kit

First off, let me say this. It is the first time I've used a straight razor, therefore I have nothing to compare this razor to. I'm one of those people that research products before a purchase. Reading reviews, for what they are worth. Most reviews comment on the razor not being sharpe, which was the major cause in less positive reviews.

The Kit arrived within a few day after I ordered it. Looked just like the picture, So I guess I can say you get what you order. Again, this is my first straight razor. it was lighter than I expected, looked good no blemishes that I can see. I also received the ceramic scuttle as a Father's Day promotion, and I ordered the stand. All of which appeared to be good quality, time will tell.

So, the first thing I did was use the strop and paste to get the blade shave ready. Once again I will say this was my first time using a straight razor. Using small strokes to get the proper angle and pressure, I got a nice close smooth shave. Getting the angles and how to hold the razor to get around your face will take time and practice. I will admit there were a few areas that could have been closer, but again I believe this will come in time it's a learning curve. As for the shape of the Thor razor, you do have to be careful with the tip, but is great for shaping and edging which is why I choose it. I must admit felt nice using a straight razor to shave with. If You are thinking of taking the plunge and try a straight razor shave, I'd say do it. It's a different kind of shave, using a single edge blade to remove your facial hair.

Savanna Scuttle

Savanna scuttle

This came very nicely packaged. So far I really like the way this keeps the lather fairly warm. Very nice looking also! You have to be careful not to get too large of a soap puck or it won’t go down far enough into the dish for you to have room to build lather. Other than that, this was a great addition to my shave routine.

This is a stunning Damascus collectible straight edge razor, but very pricey …

I have a couple Damascus steel knives and love them. This blade of this razor is made of Damascus steel, which when it’s hardened is supposedly better than stainless. This is a razor that might be used on special occasions … for showing off. This is definitely a collectible, one my husband will cherish. He loves the look and at one time did use a straightedge blade. This would be perfect for a real barber to have on hand for shaving and tidying up the neck.

The blade is sharp and because it’s made of high carbon Damascus steel, it will hold an edge better than stainless. The swirled patten on the blade gives it an amazing, natural look. Damascus steel always looks like flowing water from a stream. Speaking of water, care must be taken to keep the knife clean and dry to prevent rust.

The composition of the handle adds to the look as it’s walnut. The handle of the razor and the blade are solidly riveted together and will last for years. There’s no blade lock, something to note. The small sheaf looks handmade as well. It’s made of good quality cowhide and I’m not seeing any blue in the edges, something that indicates scrap leather. It has good solid stitching around the edges and a nice logo stamped into the center. I do love it, but it's very pricey, even more so than Damascus knives.

Straight Razor Stand
Kevin Montgomery (Burke, US)
Straight Razor Stand

When my stand arrived I found it to be an attractive and sturdy stand. sine I have not had it very long I can't address the quality as far as weathering the storm. But as for now, I am please with my purchase of these stands for my straight razor and would consider buying them again..

Great beginner guide

Worth the read if you are new to this type of shaving. Great tips for shaving and understanding type of razor is good for you.

Prefer to Dovo

The Dovo shavette has the advantage of versatility. By using different inserts one can change blades easily and quickly.

But for sheer work power I don't think it matches the Parker SRX. The Parker is stainless steel rather than aluminum and plastic. Also it uses the clip to close approach to changing blades rather than the sliding insert.

A quick word of warning: a shavette is not the same as a standard (hone and strop) straight razor. It handles differently and IMPO it does better on coarse beards.

Savanna Scuttle

Great with one flaw

Everything about it is great except that the cork supplied with it is too small. You can’t press it into the hole without the risk of pushing it in, where it can’t be recovered. Recommend that they start supplying a larger cork stop

Beautiful shave set

I've never used a straight razor before, so my terminology may be off from correct parlance, but generally speaking this is a beautiful set. It includes everything you would need to get started, and arrives in a beautiful wood case. The razor itself is really unique looking, but does feature a wicked tail (the part you use to flip the blade out) which seems needlessly pointed and is really easy to poke yourself with. The blade also seems rather obtuse, I would have expected something finer, but that could be my inexperience talking. All in all a beautiful set that seems well priced for what you get.

Excellent quality Razor kit and Razor is razor-sharp.

I received this Damascus Straight Razor Kit - Shave Ready Straight Razor. It’s a premium quality, excellent craftsmanship. Complete kit, which you needed for. The Razor, OUT OF THE BOX razor-sharp which means it is what it says. My hubby loved it and he said he never got that CLOSE SHAVE ever. Excellent gift for your loved one.

Boyfriend loves it!

I'm always giving my bf something new to try for his beard, and this particular one he really loves and uses all the time! Loves it!

Premium quality

This kit is very, very nice! The straight razor has a good weight to it; feels solid. They cut decent and I assume will sharpen up pretty well when it’s time for that.

My favorite Shave kit in the world!

I love this Razor Kit! The Damascus steel straight razor is beautifully crafted. My husband does forge work and Damascus steel has a very unique beauty to it. The razor is super sharp I mean It will split atoms sharp and it will give you the best shave you have ever had! The nice wood storage chest is well crafted and beautiful. It comes with everything you need for the best shave you will ever get from any product. My favorite part of this product is it is 100% American made and is produced by a small family owned business. Their customer service is 2nd to none and if you have any issue no matter how small they will make it right! I will be purchasing all my shaving products from them from now on you can't beat the quality of all their products! You are going to love it as much as I do. If their was an award for shaving products they should get first prize!

Erec Straight Razor

If your new to straight shaving this beauty will have you extremely happy when pampering yourself with some quality "me" time , your partner will love the smooth results as much as you do !!!

Good for price

Did the job, no issues

Premium quality

My husband want me to learn how to shave his face with a straight razor. I'm not quite ready yet but I told him I'd watch him a few times then try it. The kit comes with a high quality blade that was definitely "shave sharp" right out of the box. the shave soap that comes in this kit lathers very well, goes on and stays on, and smells pretty good on him too! Not an overwhelming scent, yet not too light. Overall it is a beautiful, well balanced blade, in a nicely packaged kit, with everything one would need to start shaving.

I AM impressed

This Razor worked without using a strop or stone on a small patch on my face. I wouldnt try to shave my whole face with it as is.. I hate to touch it but I'm going to hone it and strop it to make it mine. Every person who uses any straight edge razor would have to eventually stone hone their own razor. Your hand will make them yours. This one has good balance and is lightweight. I bought another straight edge before this one and I am still trying to get it to cut hair. From the reviews I have read some don't seem to hold a edge at all so I bought another one in case. So happy I did.

I think it is great

I have done about three shaves with the Scuttle Mug. Reviews on you tube have stated the Handle get too hot and can be hard to hold. I found the handle became warm and not a problem holding at all. The scuttle stays hot for 3 passes no problem. Making the lather has never been faster, and was warm on my face. I would recommend if you enjoy the experience of a good shave.

Great gift

I got this to give to my husband. It comes in a beautiful box and all the pieces look great. It comes with the razor, leather strop, brush, shave soap, sharpening paste and a travel case. The price was a bit high on this item but it’s all high quality.

Improved shave comfort.

This pre-shave oil helps improve shave comfort and reduce irritation. Its protection is rather durable and actually a little difficult to rinse off completely. It has kind of a smoky-type scent, which is OK. It might not be for everyone. Overall it gets the job done.
