Wet Shaving, Luxury Grooming and Smiles

When you are committed to going "old-school" with your shave, then you probably want to look to a straight. These edges are loved for their closeness and longevity.

If you imagine yourself with a blade, a honing strop, and a mirror nailed to a tree, then you are probably ready to shave the "cut throat" way. Traditional straight razors just scream testosterone. While the initial investment in razor and strop can set you back a bit, you more than recoup the expense when you never have to buy another over-priced cartridge again. The time spent in honing your technique as well as your blade is worth the pay-off when you can get the closest shave of your life.

Traditional Straight Razors Reviews
I don't know anything about straight razors or the difference between a good or bad one. I just bought this for my bf birthday. I got the razor hone (I think) which makes the razor ready to shave which I definitely recommend. The item it self is nice and comes in pretty nice packaging but I did think the handle was a bit dainty and not as rugged as I would have liked.
Great for making wood carvings
I am joking, of course. This is my first straight edge razor, so I don't have much to compare it to. I am getting better with it the more I use it. There is really not much to report... the weak link to any straight razor is the person using it. The blade is sharp, I keep it honed with my strop, and I do my best. I am becoming more and more satisfied with the shave I get as I become more accustomed to using it. It has a good feel to it, and I am pretty satisfied that I have bought a quality razor. I am not sure what a non-quality razor feels like, and I have cut myself, but that's because there is a learning curve involved in using a device such as this. I have dropped it once, and it didn't shatter, I guess that's good. I would have to say that this is a good razor. I feel really happy about it.
Straight Razor
A good product.
great razor
I just purchased this razor after trying a cheaper version that uses disposable blades. I really didn't like how that made my face feel and was hoping that this one would be better. To my surprise it is very easy to shave with and is super sharp. I am very happy with my purchase, and I do have a strop coming soon to help keep it razor sharp. I like this razor and it is well worth the cost. I didn't want to spend too much, so with this one on the cheaper end of these styles I am very pleased. Does the job perfectly.
Boker is best
Just ordered this razor and I'm very impressed. Fancy and easy to use and a great close shave. I give this 4 stars instead of 5 because my ultimate and true favorite is the Boker silver steel 6/8. Now that's a razor that's pure perfection. This is a close second in my opinion, Just doesn't top my favorite. This does look really good and it's performance is exceptional. No complaints on any part of this beauty, Well worth the money spent.
Excellent Razor
I purchased this razor to replace a similar Dovo razor I bought over 25 years ago (I broke the scales accidentally, but the razor is still in excellent, super sharp condition.) Anyway, the quality of the Forestal is outstanding, and it provides a close comfortable shave.
