    GD 208

    Great shave at the best price. Recommend professional sharpening package. Better shave than with shavette or with straight razor costing five times as much.

    Classic Straight Razor

    A great way to start shaving like a real man. I use this as a travel razor so if it gets damaged, stolen, lost etc. I don't cry all the way home. This is cheap enough to practice stropping & honing on without wrecking a very expensive razor. I will buy another one when they're on sale.

    Starter Razor

    I bought this to get started with straight razors without having to pay $200+ for the first experience. I'm fine with the blade, as I have nothing else to compare it too - it's definitely sharp, and I can strop it back to sharp pretty easily after a use or two. I've used it maybe 5 times now, getting used to how much pressure and what angle I need to keep it at - it definitely gives a close shave when you get them both right. I'm not a fan of the scales - they seem plastic and cheap, not even solid as they are hollowed-out inside. Again, I have nothing to go off of since it's the only one I've ever owned, maybe they are all that way? (I highly doubt it) The scales don't seem to effect the razors main function though. I'll give it 5 stars for now and come back in a bit with an update as to how long it lasts, how often I have to sharpen it, if I'm seeing any defects etc.

    • Have You Ever Tried a Pre-Shave Oil or Lotion? Yes I have and it makes a difference
    • Do you prefer a Shave Soap or Cream? Soap
    • Do you prefer a Safety Razor or Straight Razor? Safety for speed, Straight for closeness
    • How long have you been Wet Shaving? 25+ years

    Great starter razor

    I bought this razor with the purpose of using it, instead of my more expensive razors, to learn to hone. Came out of the box shave ready and got a really good shave with it. This is, in my opinion, an excellent “starter” razor.
