rosewood closed comb razor
West Coast Shaving Natural Collection Razor 38W, Rosewood, Closed Comb Not entirely satisfied with the razor. Some of the chrome has already flaked off the razor.
Excellent when paired
West Coast Shaving Natural Collection Razor 38W, Rosewood, Open Comb I bought the 38W razor, and have been using it as my primary razor. I've tried a few different blades. I've found that this Razor, plus VOSKHOD blades, and Shave Butter (instead of shave creams) has resulted in a far better shave than I ever experienced with cartridges. The weight and handle design of this Razor allow for getting in even those awkward areas without a problem. This is a Razor I will use for years, and will most likely be able to pass on to my children. Great work!
Great razor head. More aggressive
Great razor head. More aggressive than closed comb. Great finish and machining. Very happy with this purchase.
Surprisingly Effective Razor!
I just completed my first shave with this razor, and I will admit that I was very pleasantly surprised. My other daily razors are the Merkur 23C (closed comb) and Merkur 25C (open comb), and the WCS 38WS outperformed them both in terms of closeness of the shave. The WCS 38WS is noticeably heavier than the Merkur razors, due to the more massive guardbar component (the underside of the razor that holds the blade in place against the loadbar (the top of the razor that comprises the open- or closed-comb function). Although the distance in between the razor blade and the guard bar is similar when comparing the WCS38WS to the Merkur 23C, it seems as though the angle of the blade is slightly more aggressive, allowing for closer contact with the skin. This results in a closer shave with less effort. (The Merkur 25C is disappointing in this regard. In spite of the claims that an open-comb razor is more aggressive than a closed-comb razor, the clearance distance between the blade and the guardbar is negligible. It is difficult to get a closeness of shave that rivals a straight razor shave with the 25C.)

The bonus is that the WCS 38WS is about half the cost of either of the Merkur razors, and yet the closeness of shave comes close to that of a straight razor. We'll see, over time, how well the construction of the razor holds up, but my initial sentiment is extremely positive. Well done, West Coast Shaving!
love it
This is the first safety razor i've ever used. I pretty much stopped using regular cartridge razors before this because no matter what precautions and care I took, I would ALWAYS get razor burn. When I'd shave, it would be the low setting on my clippers. Anyway, I decided I wanted to be clean shaven again, so I did my research and bought this razor since safety razors boasted a close shave with less irritation. And it's true. Granted, I'm still getting used to using it, but my irritation is much less if it happens at all.

Used the free astro razors that I was offered on this site and it glide smoothly and shaves close. The handle is beautiful and looks like the picture. Good weight to it as well, so I just let the weight do the work. I also don't have a problem getting the small hairs under my nose. just take a bit of care and angling to get them. Best razor i've owned.
Open comb
West Coast Shaving DE Razor Head, Open Comb, Chrome "Excellent product, after two weeks I can say it was an excellent purchase. I now get such a good shave that I only need to shave every other day. I also have a heavy beard but it take two days to return. Thanks for the great product. Ted
Great value, mildly aggressive
West Coast Shaving DE Razor Head, Closed Comb, Chrome "It is a chrome plated zinc casting, so it doesn't have the sharp definition of a machined head. ...But Hey, it's 5 bucks. I generally use a mild settings on my adjustable razors, and this gives me a close shave with a moderately sharp blade like the Merkur. I generally use the PolSilver blade which is a bit sharper than most and i find i get a few nicks with this head. But, at $5 you can't go wrong.
