Double Edge Safety Razor,
This review is from: Edwin Jagger Imitation Ebony Double Edge Safety Razor (DE86) (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I ordered this for my husband, MrSinger to use as his usual grooming routine consists of shaving with a Gilette Mach3 razor and Simple soap. Like the badger hair shaving brush (qv) this is very smartly packaged indeed and would make a good gift for the discerning gentleman, well, somewhat anyway. On the plus side the blades are very cheap to buy from Boots but they're not included so we had to purchase them separately. I guess that this is a safety measure, but it was rather annoying anyway. The construction of the unit, i.e. the 'imitation ebony' was plastic. OK I suppose, but a tiny bit shoddy considering the price.
As for the shave, well hubby isn't used to using a safety razor such as this and after two shaves it made the side of his face erupt in sores so he ceased using it. I have now passed it onto my brother who has a completely different skin type and I'll update the review once he's had a chance to comment. I guess that most guys are used to the Mach3 type blades which are mounted on springs with an integral safety guide, so this is a quite different experience altogether.
