Full disclosure; I was sent this blade to test and evaluate. This short review is solely my opinion of using this type of razor for the first time.
I never really got into the shaving thing until I joined the Marine Corps, then it became mandatory. Starting in boot camp and lasting until I was honorably discharged I had to shave every day. I used everything from the disposable packs of razors to different brands of electric razors. When it came to the shaving cream I usually opted for something cheap, never really putting any thought into it. Upon leaving the military I had a difficult time finding a decent place to get my hair cut (I know that sounds silly), but every place I tried could never get the close hair cut I preferred like the barbers on Camp Lejeune. Then I found a small barber shop in the next town over. When I went in for my haircut I was surprised to find that they used a special shaving cream and straight razor for the back of the neck. I thought that was pretty damn cool to find somebody still using the old school tools of the shaving trade and from that point forward thought of it as kind of a gentleman’s club of sorts.
When I received the OneBlade I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package. The first thing I noticed was the weight of the razor. I really feels solid in your hands and could probably be used to knock somebody out of you threw it at them. The fit and finish is the next thing that will catch your eye with this razor. The attention to detail used in the manufacturing process is quite amazing, not only on the razor, but on the stand that the razor sits on. It really does look like a higher end razor you would find being used in a barber shop. The razor itself is a one time purchase, then you determine how frequently you would like to receive the blades in the mail (think of it as a men’s shaving club).
