Author: John Mercer This is a great starter razor very forgiving and smooth its certainly not a veterans razor But it will be sufficient for a beginner or someone returning to wet shaving Very well made and really super value if you want a bargain that will probably last your lifetime you wont go far wrong with this timor
Author: Andrew D This is the first DE razor I've used. It's very good. It's pretty forgiving even for a beginner. With the polished chrome it looks great and it's also a nice weight to handle.
Author: Robert Renshaw I used the Timor Double Edge Safety Razor for the first time and the results were fantastic. It gave a great smooth shave and is a high quality product. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Author: Steve Woolf I have always wet shaved a become dispondent with the modern razors so i tried this as a starter and it was very easy to use and gave a great shave with the derby blades, if your tempted like i was then try this
Author: Zoe Armstrong A review from a female perspective: I am horrendously allergic to those moisturising strips they put onto disposable razors these days. My only choice recently has been the cheap bic disposables which I do not like, so I decided to look for an alternative. I didn't know what these razors were called, but I knew they existed. A quick internet search brought me here to this double edge razor. I read the other reviews and decided to buy it. I was also looking for something a bit more eco sound than chucking a bit of plastic every month, so this fit the bill nicely.
It arrived within 2 days so great service from Shaving Shack. It's dinky and looks really well made. A quick inspection revealed that you twist the bottom to open it up to insert the blade. You get one blade with the razor and I got a free pack too. I chose the new hi-stainless feathers. I put one of these in and went for a shave! Being a girl I obviously wasn't shaving my 5 o'clock stubble, but I did have a go at my legs and and under arms! It was really easy and felt very smooth. No snagging or dragging like the disposable ones. I thought my knee might be tricky, but I did it the same way as usual and it was fine. The only thing I changed was keeping the back of my knee as straight as possible when doing that part. I was worried about doing under my arms, but again it was just as easy and they look less agitated than normal! I also didn't use a brush or shaving soap, I just gave my legs a good exfoliate with my scrubby gloves to work up a lather from my usual soap and it worked really well! I did the same for my arm pits.
I'm very pleased with this product and the results and it was a lot easier to use than I expected. Ladies, if you are on here looking for a gift for your man, maybe consider getting one for yourself too!
Author: Les Brand Iím in my fifties and this is the first double edge safety razor that Iíve bought and can thoroughly recommend it.
I bought it as a relatively inexpensive entry into DE shaving and also bought some Proraso shaving cream at the same time.
Iíve used single and multi-blade razors in the past, as well as electric shavers, and in my opinion the Timor razor and Proraso cream have given me the best shave ever.
If youíre thinking about trying out DE shaving you canít go wrong with this Timor razor.
Author: S Parsons Bought this for a travel set, but have found the shave to be wanting. Although not uncomfortable, this Timor razor is by far the most gentle of my razors, requiring more passes to get less than expected results.
Perhaps it's down to the slightly larger head, due to the butterfly movement, but it seemed to take a while to find the proper angle with this DE. Should be fine as a beginner razor, but definitely not for those who want a clean/close shave.
