Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Straight Cut Throat Razor, Traditional Straight Shaving Razor - Top Quality - IT WON'T DISAPOINT YOU + Free Pouch (Personal Care)
If you want Quality of a half decent product - DO NOT GET THIS.
If you however would like to slice your face up in a shaving version of Russian Roulette this is the item for your.
I wish I could attach photos....
Poorly fabricated the inside of the blade retainer was poorly cast. full of pits and bumps.
there are two retaining pins to hold the blade in the razor body. they don't do their job properly.
The blade jiggles about, and after a couple of stubble hairs got in between the blade and retaining parts, one end of the blade flicked out and slashed my cheek.
I thought maybe it was my poor fitting of the blade. However the next time round the blade was slipping all over the place - the clip which clamps the blade in place had opened enough as to prevent the blade from being held firmly, after several nick and a 1cm gash I reverted back to my Dovo.
I am a seasoned straight razor user (10 years of using cut throats and products similar to these), this should NOT be used by a beginner - it will turn you off for life - I was going to use it for travelling, hoverer it is a piece of junk.
The blades are fine, and the case whilst not of any great quality is ok for an alternative product.
Have a look at my later purchases for a decent one at a similar price bracket.
