To ensure that your shaving brush remains in great condition for years to come, the following points should be observed:

After use, the brush should be rinsed out throughly, shaken to remove excess water and hung up in a well ventilated place to dry (we recommend using a shave brush stand).

Never clean the brush with disinfectants.

Never use boiling water when rinsing the brush lukewarm water will suffice.

Deutsche Qualitat Review by: T 9/06/2017

I bought it as my first real shaving set. The razor feels solid but can be a bit tricky (size of the head and adjustable angle, which I mostly leave unchanged). I find the brush performs well too. Some might prefer a brush with wider head and bigger handle but I find this size practical for traveling. The satin finish wears out a bit and I would go for the polished chrome next time.
Does the job, but requires particular style Review by: James 22/06/2013

This was my first DE razor. I have used it for 8 months.

This razor does the job well, but can be very confusing to use at first and has a steep learning curve.

The bad points first.

The angle of the opening between the lid and the base of the head is very awkward and requires the razor be held against the skin more towards the head. As a result, you are less likely to see if, where and how the blade is coming in contact with the face.

Secondly, the razor is adjustable and for beginners who have yet to settle with a combination of creams and blades will find it more difficult to learn technique due to having the choice of adjustable aggressiveness. Ultimately this can lead to nicks and cuts on the face if the setting is too low or too high.

Thirdly, adjusting the razor mid-shave with wet hands is very hazardous, and is the biggest flaw of the razor. The head is designed so that you must twist it with your fingers in a location very close to the protruding blade, and with very little space to grip the head by. The reason some users would want to do this is typically to switch to a less aggressive angle during Against-The-Grain (ATG) passes, or in sensitive areas of the face such as the neck or underneath the nose. In my last use of this razor (6 months in of adjusting aggressiveness it everyday), I sliced a portion of my fingertip off and it took about 6 weeks before I could use that finger again. I have not used this razor since.

If you can tolerate all the steep learning curve and all the inconveniences of using the razor, the good thing about it is that some users enjoy having an adjustable aggressiveness for specific areas.

I do not use this razor anymore due to the ease at which an accident could occur.

People who I would recommend this razor to:
Established DE users - and most importantly, for people who are very careful and steady with their hands.
Users who will not be adjusting aggressiveness mid-shave.

People who I would not recommend this razor to would be:
First-timers to DE shaving who are in a rush master this razor in less than 6 months.

Bottom line:
This razor takes time to learn to use.
It can take a lot of patience each time you use it.
It is very rewarding after you progress past the steep learning curve, and have established a routine to keep yourself safe from the twisting mechanism of adjusting aggressiveness.
Great buy Review by: Attila 1/03/2013

I purchased this kit to get back to real shaving and it was a great buy. So I am glad I did. However if I had the choice again I would buy the razor again as it is simply fantasic to use but I would buy a different brush (which I have done) - a high quality shaving brush with a wider head - like the Geo F Trumper Best silver tipped brush.

My better half got this for me for Christmas and I have to admit it's one of the best gifts I have been given, not only a beutiful product but it is solid and well made, this brush is awesome and the razor near bullet proof. If looked after properly this set will out last you.

ordered this set for myself for christmas. great buy! it was my first DE shave (well the first since i tried to shave with my dad's one in 1978 aged 5), and it is a delight to use. you get a really tactile shave and it's a much more satisfying experience than with the mingy gillette ones
Just solid Review by: Eamon 8/03/2011

This is my first DE shaving kit. The razor feels bulletproof and the brush has a very nice feel too. You miss out on a bowl and the stand just does its job.. but i don't feel that it's much of a compromise in comparison to the vision.
