    Bought this starter kit after taking an interest in DE shaving and leaving cartridges behind. Package arrived quickly and the personalized e-mails were a nice touch. My kit included the MR-3(B) safety razor, Arko Maximum Comfort cream and Omega 13564 brush. The MR-3 is sturdy and has a nice weight to it. Felt pretty natural during my first DE shave. This is a great kit to get going with and a great price as well.

    I’ve been wanting to get into wet shaving for some time. This kit made doing so very simple and affordable. The set I got included a Merkur 42C razor, Vulfix Badger brush and Arko Maximum comfort cream. The Merkur is beautiful, the shave cream very smooth and the badger brush feels wonderful. Thank you!!

    Fantastic way to get started wet shaving with a double edge razor! The options are good without being overwhelming. The Maggard razors are great quality and low cost. All the essentials are there, no fluff or unneeded silliness. It’s also an easy way to add to your collection at a great price.

    I bought this starter kit about 6 months ago. I was weary about getting trying a safety razor. My initial goal was to save money and, based on what I had heard, get a better shave then the expensive cartridge razor I was using. This kit was a great way to get everything I needed to start out and it was cheaper than buying a new pack of cartridges from Costco.

    From the moment I ordered this I have been astounded at:

    -the great customer service from Brad and Cassie
    -the quality of the product
    -the ease of use
    -the expected decrease in the cost of shaving
    -and most importantly the decrease in skin irritation after using a DE safety razor.

    I am a huge fan and I think everyone who shaves should make the switch from electric or multi-blade cartridges to one of these razors.

    I decided to give Safety Razors a go after having grown a beard due to my hatred of Cartridge type shavers, the package arrived quickly and after a quick jaunt over to Youtube to find how to get the best lather I found myself easily doing a 3 pass shave with the Shark blades that are supplied. Really great package for a starter, great pricing and fantastic customer service, couldn’t be happier and I will definitely be shopping here again!

    I have to start this by saying I came to Maggard because of the glowing testimonials for Brad and Casie … and was rewarded for my efforts. Not only was the customer service impeccable, as advertised, but the quality of the products was fantastic as well.

    While I’m a wet shaving newbie, I can’t imagine a first DE shave any better than the one I got from my new MR6B, Arko shave soap and soothing alum finish. No nicks, no cuts, and the neck irritation I always got from cartridges is all but gone. After a few more rounds, I’d imagine my neck will be blemish-free, and my skin much happier.

    I can’t recommend this bundle — or Maggard Razors — enough.

    I received my kit this week. I went with the MR6 and have been extremely happy with the decision to jump from cartridge razors to the safety razor. I did a lot of looking around for which type of razor to go with and heard so many great things about Maggard that I had to give them a try. It was a great decision! They were very helpful during the process and went above and beyond my expectations. Not only was the service outstanding, but the razor and kit speak for themselves. These have been the best shaves I have had and would definitely recommend this kit for anyone!

    After having issues with Cartridge razors for so long a friend clued me into Safety razors and recommended this site. This Safety Razor starter pack has converted me for life. It gives a far better shave then cartridge razors ever did and the price of it all will be far less in the end.

    This pack was the perfect way for me to get into wet-shaving and has everything a newbie needs. Cant recommend it enough.

    First of all, great website. It’s well organized and easy to use. Great customer service, prompt shipping, and high quality products. I’m very happy.

    I ordered an MR6, an Omega 20102, Limes & Bergamot soap, and an alum block. I had used a styptic pencil in the past and the alum block is definitely the way to go. The razor feels really good in hand and was easy to load, and the brush was easy to work with. I haven’t tried the soap yet as I wanted to use something else first but the lime smells rather nice.

    After using cartridges all my life, I was a little worried about going to a double edge safety razor. After buying this starter kit, I am glad I did! My first shave was so close my skin felt like I was a kid again! I have now shaved with this kit 4 times and I’m hooked. I did the math on the cost, It’s going to run me around 22 cents per week! I was spending around $30 every 5 weeks for cartridges. And the funny part is, I get a better shave with the double edge safety razor! And on a side note, the shipping was FAST!

    I bought a set for my husband for his Birthday and he loves the set I got him. I received the items in a timely manner and received everything I asked for. I plan on buying more items for him.

    About 5 months ago, I almost went the “dollar shave club” route, but stumbled on a DE shaving blog that referenced Maggards. I decided instead to try one of these starter kits instead. Fast-forward 5 months and here are a few thoughts:

    (1) I enjoy my daily shave instead of dreading it.
    (2) The razor (MR6) and brush (Simpson S1) have proven to be affordable, functional choices.
    (3) The customer experience at Maggard’s is exceptional. I have made additional purchases and each time it is the same – fast, friendly and accurate.
    (4) I liked the Astra blades enough to order a bulk pack. I get a fantastic shave for under 12 cents a blade.

    This is a great way to try DE shaving.
