Fast shipping and great products. Everything I ordered exceeded my expectations and I'm happy to have found West Coast Shaving!
First Straight Razor
So I bought this because it was part of the kit. I like the razor, great weight and beautiful basic look to it. It isn't as sharp as my shavette, which was a surprise to me. I actually expected this to be slightly sharper than it was. I will be looking to have it honed very soon. I think if they offered to have a honing service on it, that it would be a great razor for beginners and advance alike. In no way am I saying this is a bad buy, I love it and still get a nice shave with it, no irritation but a little more effort than expected.
Nice but not shave ready
Good quality, weight and feel for this razor. Says it will be shave ready when ordered - and the option to have it honed shave ready is not made available at purchase. I stropped it 60 laps before shaving. But it didn't cut hairs on my face hardly at all. Same sound and effect as dragging a putty knife over one's face. I honed with compound on a balsa strop and got a good edge on it now.
Great quality products
The products with this kit are high quality. I am new to straight razors and am very impressed with the quality for the price. Packing needs improvement as one of the aftershave shave sample broke in shipping and leaked throughout the box.
Straight Razor Bundle
Honestly, I bought this razor for the novelty as I shave daily and wanted something more interesting rather than a bland 5-blade razor. This set is well worth the money as it gives you everything you need to shave and is of great quality too. Yes, it is rather expensive but that is just the nature of straight razors. I am looking forward to buying more shave soaps and after shaves from West Coast Shaving.
