Best shave I've ever had hands down

The soap, pre-shave, and aftershave all smell awesome, the brush is high-quality, and the razor and strop are great for a beginner. I've already started looking at better razors, but the GD is a great inexpensive starter for someone who isn't sure if straight razor shaving is for them. Good product and excellent service.

The description says "hand honed and sharpened in the USA". This was a little misleading, as it implied it was made in the USA. the tang is stamped, Made in China. This might be ok, and the razor seems to work well enough, out of the box, but I haven't had to honed it myself yet. The edge also looks good under a USB ProScope, you can see the finest details, and it still looks good. With that said, all might be well, if the steel is good. I have no confidence, personally, that the Chinese won't cut any possible corner though. Check out the comments here, http://theperfectedge.com/?p=828, regarding Chinese stuff. If might A good razor, despite being Chinese steel if the chinese didn't do the sharpening.
I am just getting into the straight razor shave, so keep that in mind when weighing my review. the rest of the kit is nice and well presented.

I just received my shaving set, and was so excited to try it out. I managed to get a great shave on the first try and only nicked myself once! (I'm calling that a victory.) My only recommendation for making this kit even better would be to include a styptic pencil for those nicks and cuts that are likely to happen for people new to straight razor shaving. The oils, soap, and lotion all smell wonderful, the razor is definitely high-quality, and the strop (once I found a place to hang it) was easy to use. Thank you for an awesome product. You have a customer for life.

This is my first straight razor took me a little bit of time to get use to the change and how to sharpen it

Great quality products that were well worth the price. Discounted starter kit with instructions to help learn this craft. Glad I made this purchase and have yet to have any issues with anything in the kit. Would love to get discounted items to help continue perfecting technique.

This is my first experience with a Straight razor and it was awesome. The package was small but held big surprises! The razor was well oiled and ready to go! Loved it!

My boyfriend really enjoyed this gift.

I'm in my 60's and started out using a Gillette safety razor in my teens. I have since used just about every type since then. This is undoubtedly the best shave ever.

I purchased my first strait razor, and I love the fact that I was able to get a starter kit. The only problem I have so far is that I didn't buy the practice blade. I thought that I would learn just by watching videos. Well now I am thinking about buying the practice blade.
All in all I am happy with my new personalized blade.

I bought this because I had always wanted to procure myself a straight razor. I'm not entirely sure as to why, I've never really had any problems with the cartridge razors I've used since I was 15, but I have nonetheless. This starter kit came with everything that I needed to start out with using a straight razor, and the price was less terrifying that some of the higher end razors I've seen, so it seemed the logical choice.
When the kit arrived, I was ready to go, having allowed a 3-day scruff to build up. The first thing that really caught my attention was the - let's be honest - horribly cheap plastic scales on the razor itself. Seeing as this was a starter kit, and the scales aren't actually the part of the razor one uses to shave, I looked the other way. Everything else, to my surprise, was surprisingly good quality (especially considering the price paid) and I have no complaints with any of it. Despite the shoddy scales, the razor itself is actually pretty good. Obscenely sharp right out of the box and of apparently decent construction (though the branding painted on the blade had flaked off in a couple spots) I was not disappointed overall.
I'd have to say, that for someone who is looking to try a straight razor for the first time, this kit is a pretty solid buy. The razor itself may not be of top-shelf quality, it is more than good enough to help one evaluate whether or not they want to put a little more money into this type of product. I know I will be.
