I only like my razors from virgin camels. The boned ones don't cut as close.

I never have used a straight razor, what kind of damage can I do to my face trying to learn with this? Any advice on how to use one properly?

@ruger9mm: Tons of great blogs and forums on shaving also YouTubes. You can find great information at www.straightrazorplace.com they have an entire section on new to straight shaving.

Here is a youtube link to a crazy guy that may make you think twice about shaving straight but he does a good job from the very beginning to the end (multi-part youtube):

I bought a razor from these guys during a previous wooting, and to be honest, it isn't shave worthy. It is pretty, and the price was good, but it simply is not sharp. I would have had better luck with a disposable.

To be fair, it may have just been my razor (unlucky I guess) but that has been my experience thus far.

@magus678: please send the blade back for us to sharpen or replace free of charge ;-)

Hmm.... pay house taxes early or order this. Dammit. Ordering the razor....

So much for saving up for the japanese designed one :D

How are these for shaving your dome?

Also is camel bone the brand or is it actually made of camel bone?

That's a decent enough price. Ever consider offering "kits" like that without the shave brush and bowl? Not a fan of those boar hair brushes myself.

@ruger9mm: just don't put any real pressure on the razor when you shave with it and pay more attention to not draw it sideways.

Basically, get a hot damp towel, get it on your face. This helps soften your beard/stubble. While I do this I let my brush's bristles rest in water as hot as it will come out of my tap. I also use Tom's of Maine shaving cream and let the tube warm up in water as well. After a minute or two set the towel down, shake most of the water off the brush. You don't want it all dry though. Brush the shave soap or cream a bit to get soap on the bristles. You can lather in the bowl or on your face. I prefer it in the bowl but doesn't really matter. Let the lather be on your face a bit and maybe freshen it up depending on how much stubble you have.

Now shave with the grain. Do your cheeks before you do your neck or mustache since neck and mustache are usually the toughest facial hair and extra time soften them.

Now lather up again and shave against the grain.

OK, update everyone.

I received my razors, in my opinion a nice deal for the price after receiving and using them a couple times.

Blades came sharp and shave ready, I didn't experience any problems with the blades being bowed, dull, or poorly honed or sharpened, so it looks like the quality assurance that they put in place seems to be working.

Good quality blades and scales, quite good looking on the counter in between shaves.

Now honestly, if I lived alone and enjoyed rituals these would be just the thing, but that being said I don't live alone and I don't really enjoy the ritual behind shaving so mine will become show pieces and I will go back to my electric shaver, with the rare occasion where I pay for my Straight Razor shaves at the local shop.

If you want to try shaving with a straight razor on a budget the deals from this seller seem to be getting better, and quality seems to have stabilized.

So I recommend.
Just not really for me.
