    Default Do you recommend this razor?

    Hello everyone,

    I am new to wet shaving (max 6 months with only 2 shaves a week) and have been using a safety razor. I am completely loving my shaves and the feeling it leaves me with after

    Now I am planning on my first straight razor and while going through the forums came across the Japanese style razors.
    The authentic Japanese razors are currently on the expensive side for me so thinking of picking up this:
    http://www.straightrazor.co/product/...bon-Steel.html

    It has the Japanese style plus is more like a straight razor if I'm correct.
    Does anyone have any experience with this particular razor? Even if you don't, would you recommend me getting it?

    I am also picking up one or two very good vintage straights for a very reasonable price from eBay which I plan to get restored by an expert.

    Thank you fellow B&B mates!

    Can anyone please recommend me experts who restore straight razors.
    I'm sure there are members in this forum only who are skilled at it..

    I stay in India and am unaware of any such people here..

    Aditya, I'm going to have this moved to the straight razor forum.
    The razor you linked is pretty popular around here, but i've never used one so I can't comment.

    Kamisori razors are well loved around here. GB Buckingham razors are not. I would not buy that razor.
    If you want to try a straight razor, contact Larry at whippeddog.com.

    Thank you guys for the timely revert, I was seriously considering this one.
    You'll saved me!

    I won a straight on eBay today, my first ever straight it will be. Very very excited!

    I've heard Kropp's take a very sharp edge.
    I'm having it send for some restoration and honing work.
