The razor arrived yesterday, very fast turn around; great service. The presentation is great, with a nice tin box & wonderful etching on the blade. I stropped the razor this morning before the daily shave. After the first pass I was not impressed with the sharpness of the blade. I re-stropped the razor for the second pass then mid-way through stopped using it. Instead I swapped back to my old Comoy razor. The result was a baby bum smooth shave. Having straight razor shaved for 22 years and knowing what to expect, this isn’t a problem for me. I just need to hone the razor and it will be a great shaver. If I was buying one for the first time and used this I wouldn’t have been too happy. I could have had a better shave with a disposable or even an electric razor. I recently bought a black Comoy for my son's 18th birthday (he had been borrowing mine) and it was a great shave straight out of the box. It’s a cheap razor and a great one to start on. If you don’t like the wet shaving process no harm done. Better than buying a $200+ razor and not liking it. From my perspective two of the three razors have been fantastic. I honed the razor on a 3k/8k stone and it now performs as well as the other two. If it was shave ready out of the box I would give it 4 stars. Bang for your buck, this is one of the best I have had.
