The Braveheart Safety Razor delivers a medium aggressive shave.
Read here: What Mantic the famous shaving blogger says about The Braveheart.
The Braveheart benefits from a solid, stainless steel handle which is lathe turned and polished in Glasgow, Scotland. The handle benefits from a deeply knurled finish for a firm grip and perfect dimensions. 
Match The Braveheart up with our Bullet Safety Razor Stand.

Suitable for all skin and beard types. Users report they get a great shave in only two passes, less passes is good - resulting in less irritation. This is a double edge safety razor that gets the job done with the minimum of fuss.
Mantic says "For me it can take as much stubble down in one pass as other razors do in two, making it great for me on days I need a good shave in a short time.  I find the balance of the razor excellent and the grip a non-issue".
Expect a slightly closer shave than you get from a Muhle R89, Jagger 89 and Merkur closed comb safety razors such as the 34c.See The Braveheart in action here.

Build quality very good
Blade exposure looks great and can see what you meant in terms of being more aggressive
Weighty and perfectly balanced in the hand.

Only thing I initially thought was the knurling although lovely was quite "rough" compared to my Feather.
I've not shaved with it but, when I do I am sure it will be fab

Great razor! At first I thought the knurling on hype handle was rougher than any stainless razor handle I had but, wow this gives fantastic grip. The blade exposure is halfway between the DE89 and the R41 - I knew the blade was there but, it felt smooth, effortless and a pleasure to use. The weight is perfect, fits in my hand nicely and I dont feel like I have to add any pressure. Buy this razor, you will NOT regret it.

I am 86, I have shaved for 70 years at least. The Braveheart gives me the finest shave I have ever had. The razor is perfectly weighted and balanced. It is a very well made razor.
I am chuffed to bits with the Braveheart.
I wish I could score it more than 5 out of 5.

Purchased this razor from the Silverburn store last month and after having 4+ weeks to get used to the razer ive decided to review.

Looking to upgrade my Muhle R89 i decided to try the Braveheart. The grip on the handle of the R89 is outright criminal so a knurled handle was a priority and i can say the handle is a delight. With the razer head attached theres a much better balace/weight to the razor as opposed to the R89.

As for the shave. I'd agree with the others that the shave is slightly more aggressive than the Muhle but that's definitely a positive personally speaking. Paired with a feather blade ive achieved ghe smoothest shave yet with a DE - likely due to better blade exposure and razor weight

I'd be interested to know if Executive Shaving are planning/considering offering different razor heads and building a "range" under the Braveheart line? At that price it would be excellent to give those of us valuable experience and hands on time with open combs and possible slant heads, maybe even full Stainless Steel?

This is different - I have several double edge razors - Merkur and Muhle. I enjoy a good shave - I think this is as close to an open razor that is still safe! You do not need as many passes for a close shave and it will find the occasional bump! Let it do the job no pressure - the handle feels really secure and it needs to be! Enjoy with caution initially

This is without doubt a beautiful razor, I hope Executive Shaving go one further & bring out a Braveheart with butterfly doors, or even an adjustable. Now that really would be interesting, seeing as the weight of this Braveheart is for many, perfect.....

There is a story behind this purchase, having purchased a Ikon razor and having had a mishap with its head cap ( entirely my fault ) I tried to contact Ikon to purchase a new top plate ( by the way top plate is brass plated with chrome not stainless... yes surpise ) as handle and bottom plate , but not a problem I would still have bought it. The problem was with Ikon and their attitude.. total indifference ! . However this company ( executive shaving ) kindly are having top plate sorted and re plated for me . Hence I decide to purchase the brave heart , less than half the price , its all Brian said it would be excellent shave on par with ikon for closeness , if they want to improve it ( in my mind, make bottom plate stainless same as handle and top plate brass with chrome plate or stainless...... and I will have some more !! great razor great service than you Brian.

Just brilliant as was the service that I got from Brian on Tuesday morning. I had a Muhle R89 and a 101. The R89 is great but felt too soft after the R101. I would not use the R101 after a heavy evening or if I had a cough. I like having my nose where it has always been. This razor is assertive but not aggressive. In short it is wonderful.

i did notice the increase of weight compared to my 34c however , when i took this baby out for a spin on a road of toobs sandalwood cream , it did the job very effort free . I shaved in two passes , and boy was the shave close , but very comfortable - no irritation what so ever . The handle is very grippy , the handle seems to velcro itself to your control , Wondering what this handle would be like with other heads . I recommend this item .

I purchased just the head and fitted it to another stainless steel handle I possess. It gives and excellent shave, but not for the faint hearted. Not quite as aggressive as the legendary Muhle R41, but not far off either. Fitted up with a feather blade, and an experienced user, it gives an excellent close shave. Beginners beware, as it needs a featherlight touch to give its best!

Fantastic razor. Just the level of aggressiveness I was looking for in an everyday use. More aggressive than my R89 but not as much as the R41. Less passes for a great shave. Handle gives it a nice weight. Really happy with it.

I have over 10 years' experience with wet shaving, and have tried a number of DE safety razors with variable results. Having used this razor for a couple of months, I have to say that I am most satisfied and will not be looking to replace it with any other. It is more assertive than most others and only needs the lightest of touches, but it does its job efficiently and with the minimum of passes. Bye-bye skin irritation...you are not missed.

At first only bought the head, then I bought the handle & I'm glad I did. The razor is a pleasure to use with little effort just let it's weight do the job, don't take it for granted & treat it with respect & you won't be disappointed, I just can't wait until it comes around again in my shave rotation.

Very nice razor, for all kinds of DE blades. The level of aggressiveness is in between Maggard V3 and V3a, but the head is more comfortable. The handle is very comfortable in weight and lack of slip. Excellent quality/

My first DE razor recommended by Brian. After a few weeks I felt it was a bit mild for my stubble, so I purchased the Braveheart and used the R106 as a clearing up razor. Wow! Now I know what baby bum smooth means......this really does give a close shave...I have been using it for a couple of months now and I have to say for the price you just have to get one to feel the smoothness this wonderful razor delivers!

Thought I'd give it a couple of months of use before I could give a reasonably sensible review. When I first started to use it, I didn't feel it was as aggressive as Brian suggested, but I guess I wasn't used to it. But now I can get a baby bum smooth shave from this in the three passes. I just can't believe how it does it now as it didn't before. I guess there's a learning curve to all new razors. I am a tad sad that I won't need my R106 to clean up now. Extremely pleased with the Braveheart!!

This is an excellent razor, aggressive enough to provide a really close shave, and I feel is much better than my Edwin Jagger DE I was previously using. I have been using this razor for a little over a year now and I am very happy with it.

As usual I rang Brian for some advice on a slightly more aggressive razor than my EJ89. Brian suggested I try the Braveheart. Item arrived next day and I was eager to try it out on a two day stubble. This just sailed through the job in two passes as Brian suggested, and left me with an outstanding finish. All I can say NEVER doubt the man. Fantastic customer service as usual.

The Braveheart razor is outstanding, you were correct when you told me it would do in 2 passes what my Edwin Jagger was doing in 3.

Star RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar RatingStar Rating

This is as much a testimony to Brian's faultless approach to Customer Service as to the revalation that is the Braveheart. Having spent 20-odd years shaving with my Grandpa's old Merkur 34C and Fatboy D-3 razors, I found myself a couple of years ago casting about for something a bit different, something with a bit of character, that I could add to the collection and that would bring it's own unique take on shaving to the mix. So having read the early reviews and found myself suitably intrigued, I took the plunge and ordered the Braveheart with accompanying Bullet stand. There's surely very little of any worth that I can add to the raft of glowing reviews left by very satisfied punters; suffice say, I'm using the Gillette far less often these days and reaching for The Braveheart and its very positive action (I tend not to agree with the "aggressive" tag). I've also yet to venture any further than an Astra Premium blade and a bowl of Arko soap (job lot purchased just before the Braveheart!) which some purists may scoff at but, in tandem with the sure-footededness of the razor and an old boar bristle brush that I picked up in Paris many years ago, I've not had a single "bad" shave. Two years down the line and it's very probably my favourite razor. I'd just like to finish off by saying that a minor structural issue that I recently experienced with The Braveheart was almost instantly, and incredibly positively, sorted out personally by Brian, for which I am very, very grateful.

The ideal upgrade to the Merkur 34C or Muhle R89 if you are looking for a razor with a tad more aggression. The Braveheart benefits from the heft and balance of the stainless steel handle. I found that best results are obtained by a very light touch. Let the weight of the handle do the work. Because of the increased aggressiveness, a thick creamy lather is recommended along with a good pre-shave product - I've used both Proraso and ES's own preshave oil with good results. The price is very reasonable indeed especially due to the stainless steel handle which will not corrode or rust.

A birthday pressie took three shaves to get the hang of this razor. Well worth it, haven't had to go beyond 2 passes using feather blades and exec shave products. Love the grip one gets.

Bought this 3 weeks ago, been testing on different blades eg blue silver,astra green,perma sharp,gillette sharp edge works superb. Those who have a sensitive skin use Astra green in my opinion. The aggressive of this razor is perfect or me! i cant rate it enough! just the way i wanted it, as im currently using Muhle R89, and wanted something more of a closer shave and aggressive. I highly recommend using this razor with a good quality slick shaving cream or soap, rinse down with cold water. This is my new favourite razor for the weekend day's off. Thank Brian for making my decision :-)

Bought this razor and Im very pleased. First of all - great costumer service. Qualified and fast reply. I had my first shave with it today and Its very easy to use even though it's aggressive. The blade sits very nice and tight and aligns perfectly. The handle is stainless steel with great grip. What i liked the most is that this razor is LOUD. You get amazing audible feedback with this one, which i personally think is great. I would have loved the head being availible in other metals. Its not a flawless craftmanship razor but its a superb tool in action. I'll give it 5 Stars based on performance in action, stainless steel handle which is amazing for this price and great value for money.
