HOW TO USE
Ensure the razor is shave ready, strop beforehand if required.
Lubricate the bearded area with lather from a good quality shaving soap or cream, for best results use a shaving brush.
For a close shave, we recommend that you shave twice with the grain and once against the grain.
We strongly recommend you watch some tutorial cut throat YouTube videos BEFORE your first shave.
You only need to apply minimal pressure, let the razor do the work.
This razor is extremely sharp, please be careful.
First and foremost the razor is beautiful and well made and shaves brilliantly but the reason for the 4 stars is the this razor was advertised to have a barbers notch and it doesn't have one, I'll keep the razor but I am disappointed it didn't the barbers notch.
