Very happy with my purchase all around. After 35 years of shaving, I'm finally getting a close shave, free from irritation. The Post Shave (containing witch hazel) is a great way to finish a shave.
Ok, it took a while and a lot of perseverance on my part, but I love this razor. Honestly, I'm a skinflint, so I'm using up some older creams with it first before I open up the cream and use the brush. If their quality is a good as the razor there won't be any problems. Back to the Razor. I'm on my 8th shave. I almost gave up after the first shave using the sensitive setting because I whacked up my face pretty good. I waited 2 days and tried again. Ah ha! They aren't kidding when they say not to press, but to use the weight of the razor itself. And I'm already getting the angle down! Tried again 2 days later and wasn't happy with the closeness, so since there were no nicks, I moved up to the middle sensitivity setting on the 4th shave. Whoops, a few more nicks, but the "closeness" is getting closer. Each shave has gotten better at this setting and quite frankly it's wonderful once you get the hang of it. I could never shave against the grain with a Gillette or I would have needed skin grafts. This razor make it possible for me to do that with no irritation. It's also much easier to trim around my 10 year old goat than with any other razor - including other single blade injectors, double edge razors, straight edges, Gillette cartridges, and a very expensive Braun electric. For the last 4 shaves there have also been no nicks, so I'm gonna keep going with the 1st blade until my face says no. When I change blades I'll, give the low sensitivity setting a try.
What Im saying is, that for this old guy, the learning curve was fairly steep but man, what a shave. The razor really does seem to just brush away the whiskers if you follow what the various videos tell you to do. I'm already getting about best shaves I've ever had just 8 tries in. This is truly a remarkable Razor.
Happy with my investment in the razor. It looks, feels, and shaves like a luxury product. And there’s nothing else like it on the market. The travel case is equally well made.
I have been using the stainless steel razor for a few weeks now and I'm coming from the new Gillette heat 5 blade razor. First off the quality of this supply stainless steel razor is superb. I look forward to actually shaving and being able to use this razor I like to say it's the Rolex of razors. I have very sensitive skin and I'm still able to shave with the thinnest of the shave plates with no irritation, nicks or cuts. I am always purchasing the latest and greatest of the razors and this is truly the best razor money can buy. I get a even closer shave, no irritation and to add to it it just feels like the Rolex of razors.
Another thing I really want to compliment supply on is their customer service they respond really fast on Facebook and answeres all my questions. I would like to see them come out with some really high end quality shaving products similar to what I get at The art of shaving store.
The only issue I have is I bought the stainless steel model and the stainless steel stands are out of stock. I really hope they come back in stock soon and I hope Steele color matches the razor itself. Maybe I can get lucky and they will sell me a display/demo stand.
if you are like me you may be hesitant on making this purchase as it is a very expensive razor but I can assure you once you actually get the razor in your hand and shave with it for about a week you're going to love it!
Bought the razor a few months ago and it is the best shave I have ever had. All the razor bumps are gone and the skin is not as irritated. I would highly recommend it. Also love the post shave spray, really calms the skin after.
The shave, the design and the products.
I have experienced a problem with the after shave spray bottle, I believe I got a damaged one (it broke and fell apart) but still recommend you check the quality of the spray bottle.
I was super excited to receive my Single Edge Starter Kit. I had used other brands before which promised a close, comfortable shave without irritation, but none compare to Supply. The shaving cream. brush, and Calm Post Shave did not irritate my sensitive skin, leading to an enjoyable experience before, during, and after my shave. There is definitely a learning curve to this razor, but once you find the right angle and shave head, this shave is unlike any other. It can get extremely close, making your face feel super smooth without the irritation. I was hesitant to try this company out at first, but I am so glad I did! The customer service is great and extremely quick to respond to any concern/issue you may have.
Nice modern looking razor. I get a nice clean shave everytime; no need to go back to plastic or electric razors.
