perfect travel de razor

Can't carry my SRs to overseas for business trips, so I purchased this very portable DE safety razor set. Tested this morning. Perfect. the knife center is very reliable and a no hassle place to purchase, so no regrets :)

Pretty Good Old School

Reason for the 4 stars is trivial. To those who purchase this, check if the second "segment" handle part screws in correctly. Mine was rather stiff at first almost lick the threads were a little on the small side compared to the screw in "bolt." A drop of good old fashioned gun oil (house hold 3 in 1 oil) solved this.

Very Nice Travel Razor

Well, I got my travel razor and thought I should give it a test run prior to hitting the road. Here are my thoughts: Background I normally shave with a Merkur 38 HD Classic Barber Pole Long Handle AoS pre shave oil, cream and after shave balm Personna lab blue blades AoS fine badger brush For this test, the razor is the only thing I changed out. Pros - Beautiful shave. Very smooth and no nicks, cuts or other problems. - Comfortable shave. - Handle is long enough to easily maneuver the razor. - Nice razor to look at. - The case is first rate and perfectly tailored to the razor so that it all folds very flat. Cons - The handle of the razor could use some texture for grip. It looks great, but can get slippery in wet, soapy hands. - Needs a blade safe. The kit comes with a pack of blades, but if you buy your blades in bulk packs, they will only have a paper wrapper. For a travel kit of this quality/price, I would prefer a blade safe. It could be metal or plastic, but a blade safe would be far more versatile than the blade pack provided. Caveat - This is not a con but a caveat. To get the functionality of the razor for travel purposes, you can only fully tighten/loosen the head to the handle by putting your fingers on the sides of the head. If you are not careful, you could easily cut your fingers. There is room to work safely here, but you must have your head in the game. Overall Impression – I am very pleased with my new travel razor and would highly recommend it to others who travel and use a DE razor. It is also mild enough to be a good starter razor for someone who is interested in starting to use a DE razor.

Pretty Good Old School

When you get this razor, make sure that the second handle segment screws in right. This is the segment right after the one that screws into the head containing the razor blade. Mine didn't screw in smoothly at first which is why the 4 stars are there. A drop of light household oil solved this now it works like a charm. Could be a safety issue but use caution and some kind of wash cloth wrapped around the head when you unscrew the razor for travel to prevent accidental mishaps with blade. The razor may get a little slippery when in use soap/shaving cream and etc-use carefully-just like the old days. Quality here is old school excellent-should last a life time!
