I hate paying for razors. It’s one of the reasons I tend to sport the stubble look more often than I am clean shaven. How companies like Gillette and Wilkinson Sword can justify the extortionate price they charge for razor blades is beyond me, but I guess other people disagree otherwise these companies would be going out of business.
And on top of the price, I always forget to buy them. So when I finally get round to actually having a shave, I find I have myself with the choice of hacking my face to bits with a blunt blade, or looking like a hobo until I can get to the supermarket.
So when Sterling Shave Club asked me if I would like to review their blades I was intrigued. A pay monthly (or bimonthly) service which means you not only get affordable blades, they are delivered to your door so you never forget.
I trialled both their five blade and three blade razors and both give an excellent shave, for a fraction of the price of bigger brands. The product feels sturdy in the hand, and feels of far greater value than they charge. If it had a different logo on it, you would be paying three times the price.
For the more discerning gentleman they also offer a more traditional razor in The Lordship, one for the hipsters amongst you.
All in all I highly recommend checking them out, you could save yourself some money and keep your face neat and trim at the same time.
