Rated 5 out of 5Â by William M Great razor, more aggressive than others
This razor is well built and shaves well. I bought it to replace a 1950's Gillette Travelling Razor I inherited from my dad. This one has a longer handle, has a quite a bit more weight and uses the double door method of replacing blades (my old Gillette is too light, too short, and I always had to be really careful about screwing on a new blade). As another reviewer did note, the angle that the blades are bent to are more aggressive than my old Gillette razor. This does not mean that it is inferior, just that you need to take care the first time you use it as pressing hard will bring up some blood! Once I got used to the "lighter touch" needed for shaving, and experimented with stiffer blades, (mine came with Gillette 7o'clock blades that are more flexible than other blades I have used) I have been very satisfied. One unexpected bonus is that it allows me to shave higher up my upper lip, (closer under my nose) without having to shave sideways. Nice!

I bought it for my husbands Birthday. He said it drags and does not cut like it should. He went back to his old razor.
Had nothing to do with this Company.

I gave this to my friend for an early Father's Day gift and not a day goes by that he doesn't tell me what a wonderful gift I have given him. He did not know they were even made anymore and is absolutely thrilled with it. Thanks so much for carrying products like this.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by KLW Bought this for my son - he loves it
This product is almost an exact replica of the razor my great grandfather used. My son wanted to try one after seeing the commercials for them. Hands down best shave he ever had.
Love all the products at the Vermont country store.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Weeta The length of the handle on this product fits comfortably in the hand.
My son remembers using his grandfather's razor & longed for the close shaves of this classic. A friend gave him one that is advertised as a classic, but my son found that the handle was uncomfortably short. After searching for awhile, I found this one in your catalog. I've always been satisfied, not only with the nostalgia aspect of your products, but also with the quality. My son was very happy with all aspects of this razor.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ivan Ivanovich Streltsov Old Fashined Shave
I hadn't used a Double Edged Safety Razor since I'd left the Army. No, they had given up using muskets by my time. Old joke.
The makers of razors had been making newer, smaller, lighter, and sleeker.
Downside, I have a really thick problem with facial hair.
The new razors wouldn't work, clog, not cut properly. I was desperate.
So I went back to the Double Edged Safety Razor. Yes, the first couple of times were a little rough, but once I got the hang of it back, now my shaves are close, tight and comfortable again.
Sometimes the new toys just don't do the job the old devices did.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Nattybumpoe AGGRESSIVE
I have been shaving with a safety razor for a while now and have only used one brand that I am very satisfied with. The brand I use is does not have the butterfly type opening design of this razor so I thought I would give the VCS razor a try because I know they have good quality products and service. I cannot recommend this razor but will say it is built with good quality components and functions well. There is a little play in the blade when inserted over the guide bar.This razor is very aggressive and no matter what blade I used I nicked myself constantly, a problem I have not had previously. Some may get a great shave with this razor, I could not.
