One of our Cyril Salter straight razors has been given a rave review by a leading American wet shaving guru.
Derek Markham, from popular shaving website ShavingStuff.com, was full of praise for the Cyril Salter Solingen 5/8 Open Razor Round Point.
He started off his review by explaining that because it was his first straight razor experience, he wasn’t sure what to expect from it.
“But after using it as my secondary shaving tool for a while, I’ve really grown to love it,” he explained.
“Shaving with a straight razor is one of those experiences that really separates the men from the boys, and a skill which isn’t very common anymore – so taking the time to learn how to use one was worth it.”
Derek admitted that he was a bit wary of placing a naked razor’s edge directly against his face but went on to say “after playing around with my grip on the razor, I found that I was able to get comfortable holding it and drawing it across my face”.
Derek concluded his review by saying that he was very impressed with the Cyril Salter straight razor, adding “it’s a great entry-level razor for those who wish to begin learning the art of old-school shaving”.
