while the kit is exactly what's in the picture I figured no one would sell a strop without strop oil. but they did. the brush I won't be using I have my own this one is a back up. the blade is smooth and sharp and comes pretty oiled and ready to shave. good quality blade. scales are smooth and non textured buy the design is very nice easy to hold. good buy in all.

Having never used a straight razor before, i decided a starter set was the best option. I didn't want to spend a whole lot of money up front because i didn't know if i would like using a straight razor. This kit will get you started. The brush is soft and easy to use on my skin, which is starting to become dry and sensitive with the onset of winter. I ended up buying the smolder and pumpkin spice shave soaps also. I didn't like using the tins so i cut the shave soaps into pieces and put them in a coffee mug with hot water. The 3 varieties blend to form a thick, aromatic lather. The blade itself needed to be stropped before using, but it is a nice blade. I may replace the scales later, but that's just me being picky. I took it to my barber first, and he was very impressed with it, especially for the price. I got some advice from him on using it, then let him give me a high and tight hair cut with it to build confidence and get used to what it should feel like to use a straight razor. When i finally shaved my face with it, i took my time and managed to do myself without cutting my face (just a small amount of razor burn under my chin ). Not only did i have an incredible close shave, but my skin was soft and smooth! My wife loves it (her dad used a straight razor also). It's not as fast as a cartridge or electric, but this is a razor that my barber and i would both recommend. If it came with a hone and a mug it would be more complete, but more expensive also.

This is the first straight razor i have ever bought. For a first time user of this product, i really enjoyed using it. The shave shave soap smells great, and lathers well.
The ready to use razor worked perfect, even though i did nick myself a few times, lol.
I recommend this kit for anyone who wants a great starter kit.
