Quality materials and a great price – it is difficult to go wrong with a Maggard Razors DE. These traditional double edge safety razors are ideal for the beginner, while seasoned wet shavers will appreciate the high quality handles and smooth shaving heads. These razors shave very similar to Edwin Jagger razors, at a fraction of the price.
You might wonder how we can do it. What differentiates our razors from more expensive razors? How can we offer them at this price? For one, we don’t sell these razors in any fancy packaging or boxes. You’ll get a razor in a plastic bag. Second, the surfaces of this razor won’t be quite as polished as higher dollar razors. There may be some very light scuffs/scratches on the chrome only really visible if you’re looking for them. These imperfections do not affect the shave at all. Third, we buy in bulk from Asia and basically do the quality control ourselves, passing on the savings to you.
Are there better razors out there? There sure are. It would be debatable if they shave better though – and that is what it is all about. For the money, our razors are one of the best values in the market.
The MR6B is a heavy, knurled razor, with a black handle. It is the heaviest MR razor we offer.
All Maggard Razors have a brass handle has been chrome plated and will never rust. The heads of these razors are chrome plated cast zinc alloy. The MR1, MR4, MR6, MR7, and MR18 have solid brass handles, while the MR2, MR3, MR9, and MR20 have hollow brass handles.
The aggressiveness of these razors is more than a Gillette “Tech”, close to a Gillete Superspeed. They are, IMO, the sweet spot in terms of aggressiveness for a beginner to try a DE razor. For those familiar with the vintage “Slim” adjustable, this razor is in the 4-5 range, I’d say closer to 4.
We have visually inspected every single razor for manufacturing flaws. Many heads we test fit a blade to ensure blade exposure and gap consistency. You won’t find any bubbled up plating or overly rough edges on your new razor. The heads thread smoothly, and on every razor we have shave tested, each one was consistent in shaving from both sides of the blade. We stand behind these razors – so if you find a flaw that affects your shave, simply contact us and we will resolve the issue!
blades wiggle a little when not tightened down. If your blade is not aligned please loosen the handle a bit and align the blade. After the blade is straight, tighten the handle. This is normal for our razors, and common in many other brands of DE razors. If you have any other question or concern about your new MR razor please email us and we would be happy to address the problem!
Our safety razors use standard threading that is compatible with almost all other 3 piece razors (Edwin Jagger, Merkur, Muhle, Gillette, RazoRock, just to name a few).
As a final thought – Try not to compare this razor to your $150 IKON when you receive it. Shave with it, enjoy it, and remember, this is a budget razor that probably cost less than you spent on lunch last Tuesday. It is cheap enough to buy one for all of your friends and help expand our community. This is the reason we’ve made these available and the reason for their great success!
