I have been using the Solomon for about a week now an it is beautifully balanced, an came perfectly sharp out of the box.
I have Damascus and King Arthur straight razors. I also bought a stand. I found the Damascus razors edge not to be ready to use out the box, but was impressed with the King Arthur. The stand holds the King Arthur razor but not able to hold the Damascus razor.
They are well made and attractive. I would recommend the King Arthur, but Damascus for some reason doesn’t hold its sharp edge. I’m not saying it’s not a good razor it may not be right for me.
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).
