      Repeat offender

      I already had a Grim Dollar when I made this recent order. Was so pleased with the first one that I bought again so that I could build a bigger rotation and extend the amount of time between honing my line up. Definitely did NOT expect to get 50 4-pass shaves from a $30 straight razor before it started tugging. It doesn't handle as well as my Dovo and I don't expect the Grim Dollar to be able to compete with it shave after shave, hone after hone, year after year, they are in different classes. However, the value of this straight is incredible and I would recommend it to anyone, new or experienced. For the new shavers, it's a much easier pill to swallow than spending a couple hundred on a high end blade when they don't know if they'll like straight shaving or are worried about wrecking an expensive blade learning to strop, and for the experienced guys it is a good backup for when your main blade needs honing or you want to do a rotation without the cost involved of a multi-razor set.

      Great Shave so far.

      The razor is easy to handle, very sharp, and thus far has given me no issues. The only issue is my inexperience with a straight. I paid for the honing service since I don't have any stones. It came shave ready out of the box. Glad this was an option for a curious person. I don't think I would have ever spent $250+ on a straight just to try it. I would probably get a 5/8 straight point for my next razor, but this is a great starting point.

      Wonderful razor for the price

      So far this razor has been read. Great quality for the price only downside is the scale is plastic. Easy to sharpen and hone yourself. Good place to start. Sad that the Blades Grim logo rubbed right off the blade when cleaned it with rubbing alcohol when I first received it.

      It has been great so far, it is helping me learn how to strop and keep a blade. I like the quality for the price. I am very happy

      Excellent first straight razor but...

      Amazing value for a first straight razor. Responded to stropping before each use. When I felt that it was time to touch it up on a very fine stone, I found that the bevel didn't line up with the spine so on one side the edge touched the stone directly and the other did not come close. But more stropping and the edge was fine. I bought a Dovo that was better but cost five times as much.

      • How long have you been Wet Shaving? Only a few months
      • Do you prefer a Safety Razor or Straight Razor? Straight razor shaves closer and is more satisfying to master.
      • Do you prefer a Shave Soap or Cream? Cream
      • Have You Ever Tried a Pre-Shave Oil or Lotion? Oil, and it made the shave smoother.
