Type: Safety Razor
Manufacturer: Rex Supply Company
I’m convinced this razor is perfect. Nice weight, great feel, and very nice shave. I have sensitive skin, but this razor still performed great with giving me a smooth shave without irritation. When I first got the razor, there were some scratches on it, but after emailing Grown Man Shave, they were quick to send me another one without making me send back the old one, and they threw in some free shaving soap and aftershave as well because of the issue. Truly great customer service that you don’t see often.
I've used a fat boy progress and lately I've been using a Gibbs Model 17. I finally got around to getting the Ambassador. The best razor I've ever used. One pass all I need adjusted on three. If you like wet shaving and you do have the money get the razor. Last you forever and give it to your kids.
Of all of the shaving websites available, only Grown Man Shave claims to carefully gather the best in wet shaving supplies. And they mean it. The Rex Ambassador, stand, and travel case employ modern quality while echoing a time past: the perfect blend of precision and nostalgia. Will be a customer for life!!
This is perhaps the best ajustable Razor ever made. The weight is perfect for me, 100 grms. The size is exactly the same as the Gillette Fat Boy, not too big, not too small, just perfect. The handle texture is awesome, better than anything else I've ever seen. I don't have any problem with any handle as long as I don't have soap on my hands. But this one even with soap is feels very secure. The most important thing is how it shaves. Well it shaves so well. It is the perfect combination between efficiency and comfort. And because it is an adjustable razor, it is like having multiple razors in one.
I have sensitive skin and normally shave with an Ikon SC 101, but it’s a bit too mild. The Rex shaved like a dream once I dialed in on the right setting of 4 for 1 pass and 3 for the next The Rex provides a close comfortable shave w/o bumps and cuts, get one if you can afford it.
