Taconic Shave "Urban Woods" shaving soap

Outstanding service/prompt delivery!
Taconic Shave "Urban Woods" shaving soap lathers-up really well and my wife appreciates the `woodsy' aroma
(I also switch between Taconic Shave "Eucalyptus Mint" shaving soap).
Cheers!

Got Stone?

This razors strong appearance is what sold me. The graphic design on the scales forming the handle is beautiful. A permanent blade that can be sharpened was a must. I am accustomed to a slimmer blade and the heft of this one will be an adjustment. It completely lacks an edge sharp enough to provide a shave.

Wet Shave Ultimate Kit
J.R. (Indianapolis, US)
Beauty quality and everything you need!

Hi guys , i have the absolute pleasure of talking about my Naked Armor ultimate wet shave kit ! This package arrived nicely packaged in a good sized box and upon opening i was in pure joy. So lets start with the travel pouch , it has a nice leather look and strong fabric construction with plenty of storage for your shaving essentials . It has a very classical look that takes me back to days past where quality looked the part. The scuttle is a nice black chunky ceramic affair with groves and ridges to hold that soap in place and allow you to whisk up a sensational lather and in a stylish manly black ceramic finish looks awesome. The stand is hefty ! No flimsy piece of cheap junk like the cheap ones iv seen in the past from online retailers !! The shaving kit itself is presented in a classy wooden chest and upon opening you will find a really great tin of shaving soap that smells fantastic along with a lovely quality leather strop and a tin of stropping paste along with the essential ingredient the Solomon straight razor. This blade has a great feel to it crafted in a beautiful wood handle with brass edges and accenting. Opening it up presented me with a sublime and highly polished razor with a concave ground edge that as i expected was indeed "razor sharp". I set about my first shave fast and found it performed smoothly gliding elegantly across my stubble with ease lraving my skin smooth without bumps after a few gentle strokes. Finally satisfied with my trim and neck shave i proceeded to apply to post shave balm something i was skeptical of !! I was suprised in a huge way to find my skepticism was completely unfounded and it added a long lasting sleek soft smooth finish that the lady in my life definately enjoyed to feel of. In my honest opinion the entire kit is perfect for treating yourself to so your grooming goes up to a top notch level but is also equally something i feel any man of worth would be more than happy to recieve as a gift!!! Once again Naked Armor you never fail to give me something that is a pleasure to use and own 100% !! This was a 10 out of 10 experience and i highly recommend it to anyone looking to "up their game" (video link to a shaving demo is attached for those who wish to see this magnificent product in action) Thanks guys !

Work of Art!

Nearly a month ago I gifted myself the King Arthur shave kit. The razor is a work of art, a thing of beauty, and a pleasure to shave with. The balance is superb making it easy to get the edge in the proper position to shave. I'm fairly new to using a straight razor and shopped extensively prior to deciding on this one. The wonderful folks at Naked Armor honed my razor for no fee as it was "dragging a bit" out of the box. Now, this razor and the other product in the kit make my daily shave a pleasurable experience. Any ladies looking to get the man in their life a lasting gift, then by all means choose one from Naked Armor. The pricing is great and the customer service is the absolute best of any retailer (online or brick and mortar) I have ever experienced.

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.

Lancelot Straight Razor Kit
D.F. (Mandeville, US)
Handsome knife, not as sharp as I’d like.

Really love the entire set and how it looks, very happy to have this as my very first straight razor set. However after stropping the blade per instructions for a considerable amount of time, I still feel the blade drags. Doesn’t get me as smooth a shave as I anticipated.
Still a great blade and set, I’ll be keeping and using it because I love it. Just not 100% satisfied.

Erec Straight Razor
John T. Bonham (Boston, US)
A Beautiful Razor

This is my second Naked Armor razor and it is just as good as I expected! The Erec looks so unique; there aren't any straight razors I've come across with scales quite like this one. It was sharp out of the box and well oiled. This thing will last a lifetime. Thanks Naked Armor!

Solomon Straight Razor
Eugene Cole (Cleveland, US)
Great Shave!

I suffer from very bad proprioception due to injuries sustained during my time in the Marines. Thus a straight razor is a Godsend for me. The weight of it allows the razor to do most of the work, meaning my hand does very little work so there is very little chance of me cutting myself if I am careful. This is a vast improvement over the shavette I had for years with its much lighter weight. Also, because it's the blade is a single blade instead of being inserted, it is easier to keep clean during the shave than a shavette. Last month in April I flew to my son's house to celebrate my 63d birthday. Since I was only there a few days, I only packed a carry-on. That meant a cartridge razor (and I borrowed a quality one) instead of a straight razor since a straight razor isn't allowed in the carryon. What a mistake! I "shaved" an hour before the party, but the women there were asking me why I didn't shave. Even though they hadn't seen me since Christmas, they were still used to a straight razor shave. In the pictures I took, the one in the shirt is 20 hours after the one with me shaving, my face is still smoother in the picture with my shirt on than my face was right after the cartridge shave. I will never make the mistake again to disrespect any woman I care about by shaving with a cartridge razor before I see her, just to save a few minutes at the airport. I enjoy shaving, I am very masculine, and it is a very masculine ritual, and a very masculine skill to be able to get one's face as smooth as a baby's butt. And I've never had a woman object to that. Even when I have a beard, a nice clean cut at the beard line and the rest smooth skin is appreciated. This razor definitely fits the bill. It strops easily, fits well onto a standard 3" strop. I'm 6'3", my hands aren't particularly large for my size, but they are long for my size. The Solomon razor still fits well in my hand, is comfortable to hold, and turns easily as I reposition my hands moving the razor over various spots on my face and neck. I love it.

King Arthur Gold Straight Razor
Daniel Mahoney (San Antonio, US)
King Arthur

Recently got my new King Arthur. Very beautiful, artistic and classy! The looks do make you feel kinda special. As with most new razors it needed some touch up on the edge. After that, the feel and weight of this razor was very balanced and smooth on the face. The feeling after a good wet shave is relaxing and looks good. Plus the wife really loves the feel and look. I would definitely recommend taking a look or even purchasing the King Arthur or any of the other razors Naked Armor has.

Savanna Scuttle
Daniel Mahoney (San Antonio, US)
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.

Solomon Straight Razor
Daniel Mahoney (Dallas, US)
Slolomon Razor

Got my first razor from NA and it was packaged great! I got the Solomon and was very pleased with the way it looked. It appeared to be well constructed. Had a beautiful finish. Went to use it and it pulled a lot. Went to the strop and it improved a lot. Still not shave ready out of the box. After closer inspection I found some quality issues, but got with Laura at customer service and they are awesome! Handled my issue very promptly and resolved everything. I would definitely recommend them for your razor needs. Looking to get one or two more from them

Esclabor Damascus Straight Razor
Justin taylor (Taylor, US)
Esclabor Damascus razor

Wow. The first thing that hit me about this razor is the weight. It is substantially heavier than my other razors. And with good reason. The handle is beautiful blue and green, the blade itself has an amazing Damascus pattern. Super great shave and it feels amazing in the hand, due to the shape and the weight. This is my new favorite razor, for sure!

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.

King Arthur Gold Straight Razor

Awesome product! Walked away from straight razor shaving a little over a year ago. Was disenchanted. Took a chance on this razor and I am back! I count the hours between shaves I enjoy it so much. Great product!

King Arthur Gold Straight Razor Kit

I usually don't post reviews, but this straight razor is one of the best buys I have made. It is such good quality and such a beautiful razor. It has a nice heavy feel to it and is really sharp out of the box. All the things it comes with are great too, the lather on the shaving soap is good and the strop has a nice, sturdy feel to it. I recommend this product 100% and will for sure be buying more products from Naked Armor.

Nice Piece

Good fit and finish, nice heft and a good size. Feels good in the hand and even has screws in the scales if it ever loosens up. Really like the patriotic paint job! Took a star because it wasn't sharp at all, so I will reassess after a good honing. Also, the folks at Naked Armor have been a pleasure to work with and I'm looking forward to doing more business with them.

Brown Bess Shaving Soap

This soap has been very pleasing to me after a few uses now. The scent is mildly and pleasantly aromatic.

Functionally, it lathers great in a bowl and does what it’s supposed to do during a shave.

Silver Fox Scuttle
John Garner (Springfield, US)
Silver Fox Shave Scuttle

This thing is fantastic. Keeps your lather nice and warm. The construction of it is solid. This isn't cheap or poorly made. It's well worth the price they are asking, if you want to add more luxury to your shave. Honestly, just buy it you won't regret it.

Samson Shavette Straight Razor | Blue
Sean Fisher (Nazareth, US)
Samson is AWESOME!

I've wanted to try a straight razor for years, and took my barber's advice to go with the Samson shavette. Between the Nate's puck and Samson straight razor, shaving has become ENJOYABLE instead of a chore. I couldn't be happier with the products and my experience. Check out the Naked Armor tutorials too, and don't be scared to give this a try. I honestly have fewer nicks and irritation with my straight razor. My only regret is that I didn't embrace the classic wet shave sooner!

Silver Fox Scuttle
D.G. Halko (Ketchikan, US)
Forget All Other Scuttles

There is simply no greater scuttle mug than one made of stainless steel. Is there another one on the market? No. Simply stated, this is far superior to any other mug out there. You can put boiling water straight into it, unlike those made of ceramics, and if you drop it, so what? It's metal. You [might] dent it but that won't hurt its functionality.

You want hot lather? This is the only mug you should even consider.

(30+ years wet-shaver)

Very impressive and high end!

I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your product. The presentation and quality of everything in it from the box it came in, to the catalog and of course the shaving kit itself, is superb! In the pic, I'm in the middle.

The Lancelot

I recently purchased the Lancelot straight razor from naked armor. My First impressions of it are very high. I love the save and the weight of it. It handles very nicely, and is easy to grip and maneuver. Definitely build with good quality. If you are a fan of straight razor shaving or are interested in taking it up. I would highly recommend a razor from naked armor.
