Why You Need To Use Shaving Cream
How To Prevent (and treat) Wet Shaving Nicks & Cuts
I reached out to Royal Shave about ten years ago for a recommendation. After asking me a few questions about my shaving habits, they steered me toward this short-handled Merkur. It's been great, and it still works. If you keep up with scale on the threads (I live in a limestone hard water area) yours will last for many years, I'm sure. Rinsing channels are a great feature. Easy to travel with, too.
The ceramic shaving bowl works great, and looks classy on my bathroom counter..
I am thoroughly satisfied with my purchase. The razor’s plating and print is very clear and beautiful.
Excellent product outstanding service
I could write an essay on how amazing this straight razor is, but I’ll try to be concise. The performance of the blade is very excellent. The weighted feel of the wood and natural beauty of the pearl design is on par with fine art. The pearl itself amazingly reflects a beautiful array of colors. I have about 15 modern straight razors and the Carre is tied with the best Dovo I have and it’s equally as great as the luxury line Thiers Issard 889s. Royal Shave has the best price. I’m very happy with this purchase.
When these were new they were great! They were introductory samples. The company hasn't made these in 7-8 years.
Thank you very much.
Feels durable, good size when folder for putting in a pocket, and they look nice. I'd buy another two any day.
These are just what I need for a close, comfortable shave.
They're double edge razor blades. It's hard to imagine one brand would be different from any other. And these pretty much aren't. Of course there's variability between one particular blade and another, but on average, they're all about the same. A blade lasts for maybe 5-10 shaves before my informal way of sharpening them doesn't work as well any more, and I move onto the next blade. But it's a huge bonus that Royal Shave had these blades on sale for almost 75% off. You can't beat that!
I got what I think is a good deal buying Triumph and Disaster Rock and Roll Suicide face scrub from Royal Shave. But it's still expensive. My most days scrub comes from Harry's. But once a week, I get my Triumph and Disaster. I'm tempted to go to two days a week, which is what the product also says is also a reasonable schedule. I love this stuff. The smell of it, the feel of it, and the feel of my face after I've used it are terrific.
Perfect for my use.
I'm new to wet shaving with a DE razor and this was a superb and smooth shaving. What a difference! This is going to become a morning ritual. And the saving it's going to be quite amazing. Great customer service from Royal Shave!
Bought the Merkur 33 Razor. It is a precision shaving instrument. Beautiful made German craftsmanship.. Thank you Royal Shave for a great product at a great price.
Great paste, I used both pastes and got my straight razor shave ready. It was easy to apply both pastes to the strop.
