Not a bad price for the set. With it you get a vintage restored blade with new scales.

So, you're likely to see a decent blade out of this.

However, you'll still get Luke's attentive customer service, which most people who have had to use have given him high praise for.

*Note: Had this been one of VSR's house-brand blades I'd be telling you that they get miserable reviews, and that you might not want to buy it.

@xavoc: I still have not received my order from 14 days ago. Customer service?

@jeffyn: Did you contact them about it? No?

I'll help you out then. Luke posted an update 2 days ago saying they would ship on Monday in the order received. I'm sure he'd be willing to let you cancel your order if you wished. Ideally he'd have been more communicative. Then again, maybe he'll throw in something extra due to the delay?

I was referring to people who received their units and were unhappy. He's been very accommodating of complaints and issues in that regard.

Personally considering he's a small shop, I'd cut him a little slack in the delay due to the 4th of July holiday thrown in there, but that's just me.

@xavoc: Yes I did contact the company and was told it was sent to the warehouse and I would get it when promised. How long did it take u to get your order?

The little brush/soap kit that this comes with totally sucks, except for the shaving mug.

@xavoc: The vintage German blade adds $130 to the price.

@rpstrong: There are plenty of great vintage blades that aren't German. Not sure what your point is.

@jeffyn: When was it promised?

My order, which was last year sometime, shipped the same day I ordered it.

@tom12385: The soap is fine, but not amazing. As for the brush... Well it's easy to spend $60 on a brush by itself.

Basically it's a kit you can get for about $10 from Walmart, or Amazon, and the soap gets a 4.5 star rating on Amazon.

@xavoc: "There are plenty of great vintage blades that aren't German."

I'm sure there are, but the only reference on the product page to vintage blades - of any quality or origin - is the German blade upgrade.

"Not sure what your point is."

That you get what you pay for.

VDH also makes Colonel Conk

@rpstrong: You are correct, I missed that somehow. Like I said in my initial post. If it's his house-brand blades... It's not worth it.

@xavoc: Given my previous arguments with Luke about his business practices and his responses to valid and constructive criticism I would not cut him any slack for any reason as he clearly uses multiple webpages to dupe consumers into buying low grade products through occasionally selling a few decent products so that people will leave some good reviews then going back to primarily advertising low grade products and pointing to his great reviews from the good products then switching what site the offer is from once he gets too many bad reviews on the site he's currently using while denying he does any of this despite having multiple websites full of low grade products.

@xavoc: Thats what I don't understand . I don't know what the promise date is and they did not tell me when I contacted them. Thanx for the info on the shipment next monday , but I think that info should have been e-mailed to me. If it takes 3 or 4 weeks to get something they should tell me that when I contacted them.

@jeffyn: I don't disagree with you there.

@ikisat: He's been using the VintageStraightRazor.com domain for a while now, but yes he has done that in the past. Any comment I've made about it were deleted. Like I said. If it's his house brand straights, stay away.

Or is Star Customs his new house brand?

@jeffyn: We have been updating anyone that mails as we did for you as well plus letting the group know over on the deal in question. These are shipping out Monday. I hope you enjoy the new razor. Sorry I have been traveling so just getting back here.

Regards,
Luke
