Double-Edged Safety Razor
I purchased this razor after having only used an Edmund Jagger razor that I absolutely love. This razor sold by VCS is much more aggressive. I normally don't nick myself much but with this razor it was a major blood letting. The razor functions just fine and appears to be well made. There is a little play in the blade when loaded onto the bar prior to closing, this may cause some misalignment of the blade which could account for all the nicks as well. I tried two different brands of blades with neither results good. This razor may work for others but not for me.

This is a good product.
Have been wanting a new razor like this for a while. It gives close, clean shaves.

I have used the twin blade, tri blade, quad blade razors and have not been happy with any of them.
I first started shaving with a Double-Edged Safety Razor as a teen but moved on because of all the nicks and pain. Perhaps it was the young age or the quality off the razor or a combination of the two.
I saw this one in your online catalog and decided to give it a try. Wow, what a shave. It is very well balanced and is a joy to use. Good clean shave without nicks.

Yeah I had been Looking For one of these for a while.
It gives an excellent shave. I would have given it an excellent Rating., But you have to be extra careful around your chin, It can nick you. I'd buy another one
though in a minute.

easy and excellent
I am cursed with the heavy beard/baby skin condition. Finding a razor which is light enough to handle easily and sharp enough to shave me closely has been difficult. This does and has a longer handle for easier movement. This is a wonderful find for me.

Even better than expected
I recently heard a radio talk show host talking about his experience with a safety razor. This got me cruising down memory lane, remembering watching my dad shave with a safety razor. Of course as a male child, we can't wait to grow up and be like daddy and I could not wait to be big enough to shave. Unfortunately, by the time I was mature enough to shave, safety razors had nearly disappeared. I have now discovered what a shame and misfortune it is for the male race. I now get the closest shave I have ever gotten. My wife is very happy also. I can recommend strong enough, that every man should have a safety razor. It will be one of the best investments you will ever make. Thank you Vermont for your excellent and expediate service. I will definetly be a return customer

The Old Razor is being replaced by a wonderful new one.
For years all my husband of 57 years used was the double blade razor. Before we married I purchased a wonderful electric razor for his Xmas gift. Being in the service I felt it was the thing for him to have. His sister told me he would never use it. I returned it and purchased a sweater vest for civilian wear. Unable to find a replacement I was happy to see it advertised at THE VERMONT STORE and also the replacement blades.
This is his Father's Day gift for 2013.
So it has not been used as of this date 6/11/13. Soon we shall see the results of the first shave!
