The long handle is nice and the razor doesn’t clog very much. However, I don’t feel like the blades last as long as they could. Also, the side of the blade sticks out of the side, which is sharp and cuts me when I’m shaving my nooks & crannies.

I know this particular straight razor isn’t the most glamorous or the most marketed one, but it is a really great razor nonetheless. I hear people say they’re afraid to use this because it’ll make them bleed… I have never had a shave this nice and smooth, and I was a fancy razor girl before investing in this piece. (As soon as I decided it was time to switch this product I stopped seeing them in the antique shops, of course!). The best advice I got on maintaining it: take it apart to let it completely dry after each use so that the blade doesn’t rust and it can’t grow anything icky in between there. My current blade has lasted almost a year despite weekly full-body shaves!
