Good price for a great entry to DE shaving. V popular

This gets posted every other week. Having said that I do own one and it is great but is a little small for my oversized hands

Had a bad experience with a EJ badger brush - the brush head came detached from the plastic handle. The head was glued in place to the plastic handle - an inadequate design choice given the brush comes into constant contact with water. Luckily Amazon gave a refund for the brush no problem but on this experience I can't really recommend EJ products myself.

this should be a scorcher!

Was £16.32 in the past few days so not a great price but still very good price

i think that and im a girl, it feels to short to get a grip on

May get one as a hint for the wife, her tash is really starting to make me jealous!

I've got this razor (black handelled version), it's good, but get some different blades

Not voted either way. It's usually around this price, so not exactly a hot deal, but at the same time DE shaving is great and even at this "normal" price it's something that you should try.

its normally £20+ apart from one week over christmas where it dropped to £16.32

I have this razor and dont rate it at all. Have to use a bic to get under my nose and around my chin as this just doesnt get close enough (tried all the top blades and ended up with Astra Platinum).

Been DE shaving for 4-5 years now. Could not see me going back to 'multiblade'.

My 'daily' razor is a Mekur Futur; however, I use an EJ (black handle) as a travel razor - half the weight, and it all counts with baggage allowances!

I've only recently strarted DE shaving in the last couple of weeks and wow, what a change! The closest shave I've ever had! Takes a bit of getting used to but well worth it! HEAT

Anyone recommend a good starter kit for DE shaving?

Great item, actually prefer to my old merkur once got used to it. Ditched the Derby blades though, too rough for me.

Since last July it's mostly been under the £20 mark. My mate got one in November for £18. I'm not denying that this price is cheap, just the fact that I don't see it as a hot deal...

I agree with getting under the nose, it's a struggle but I manage to get it by shaving against the grain. I've stuck with the regular Derby blades though, not really had any issue.

This is the lined version which is rarely posted on here as its only dropped below £18 a three times before.

I've got the barley version, looks better and has slightly better grip, which uses the same head and I love it. Took a while to get used to the prep and making the lather, but once I got it right you get an incredible shave and stupidly cheap blades.

Anyone recommend a good starter kit for DE shaving?



If you're just looking to get started then a few things you'll need:

- Razor - comes with 5 blades so you don't need to buy new ones immediately
- Brush
- Soap / Oil
- Alum Block - great for soothing the skin and cuts after a shave

Here's a cheap-ish basic kit that'll get you started. When you feel comfortable, or have any issues with any particular component just swap it out and get something more suited to your needs...

Razor - the one in this deal
Brush - Small Shaving Brush £6
Soap - Arko Shaving Cream Soap Stick - £2.10
Alum Block - £5
Total £31

As mentioned above, once you have the kit sorted the long term savings are massive. Blades are dead cheap, so's the soap, and you might end up buying a new/better brush every once in a while

I highly recommend this
Razor

from Deal Extreme. I bought it to use as my travel razor and have ended up using it more than my Merkur 34c . Only ~£3, very light, and feels quality, comes with a case and mirror (although it's part of the case and tiny but okay if you are desperate). Brilliant value.

Got into DE shaving from this site, voted hot as this is a good deal too, don't want to take away from it by cross posting. Good to have a backup though.

Have this razor, love it.
The only issue I came across was that dropped once and then the shaver broke in two so had to order a replacement.
Also those who shifting to the safety razor be careful as this type of shave should be done slowly otherwise will have lots of cuts. The best part is that the shave is very close and smooth, now I don't have to shave everyday. Also is much cheaper in the long run.

Are blades cheaper for this compared to the gillette mach 3 turbo blades and the longevity between the two? Can't be affording to pay silly prices for gillette blades...

Yes, lots that, for me, is the big advantage.

I don't find the shave to be any closer, in fact it, for me, is not as close as your 5 blade wilkenson, Gillette etc blades but the blades are affordable, last longer and don't require you to stand there banging the thing against the sink to dislodge hair if you have more than half an hours growth on your face

AS mentioned above the blades can be had VERY cheaply, as in £10 ish for 100 YES 100 but IMHO bin the derby blades they are pap but spend a bit more & get something like THIS or try a starter pack with a few different blades like THIS

Looks like I'll have to make an investment in this! Thanks guys for your feedback.

Without sounding like a noob, can I use Crabtree & Evelyn shave cream rather than a stick with these de razors? I've a pretty thick/coarse beard and shave daily currently with the above and Mach 3 (although I was contemplating switching to CleanSahven blades based on price alone. I find Mach 3 with any foam/soap/gel (including King of Shaves) pretty average, but rather good Crabtree shave cream.

One customer's experience of the brand. Had you contacted EJ directly I do presume they would have replaced the brush too. They are very well regarded in the shaving community. Also, all shaving brushes are made this way and nobody recommends puttting them in boiling water as this will dissolve the glue. Perhaps you had a faulty brush. Perhaps you put a perfect brush in boiling water. The EJ brand is extremely reputable.

Yea, I use hand soap and a DE and it suits me fine, I'm sure my skin would thank me for using better products but convenience wins out.

I also have thick stubble, and find the big brands useless as they just clog up immediately and are damn near impossible to clean (including hot/cold rinsing from a very powerful tap) these completely solve that problem and a fresh blade gives a great shave. I change blades every 2-3 shaves and it still costs me less than buying Gilette and the like

Thanks. Just ordered that and a straight blade. Been meaning to buy a replacement straight blade for a while, and the DE one will be useful on holiday. Never would have thought to look on DX. Cheers

If anybody is interested pm I bought one of these and used it once and don't like it. £10

You should really give it more of a chance, it takes a while to get used to the technique (eg the amount of pressure to use) particularly if you're shaving against the grain.

I'll stick with my old blades and Razorpit.

Any brand of blades you found good/best avoided with a thick beard? Looking to start but don't feel like ripping my face to shreds using a 'light'/wrong brand of blade.

My first DE came with wilkinson blades, and I have never switched, that may be because they are good, or because any make is good enough/ I'm not fussy

Thanks - that is where I got my average £20+ from

off topic slightly, but am I the only one who refuses to buy blades that arent side numbered (i.e ,1,2,3,4)?

damn annoying trying to work out whether a side has been used or not

hence why I stick with astra platinum as seems to offer the best shave and are numbered,

Heat added, very good as a starting Razor and blades. I started with Derby blades and moved onto Astra and Lords but currently settled on Sharks with some Feathers in reserve.

Get a bog standard brush from Wilko or tesco for about £3ish and some Bluebeards Revenge wool fat soap for this Razord and blades and you'll be well away.

I still haven't got a good grasp of numbering. I get about 5-6 shaves out of a single Shark blade before I have to change it.
