Product Description

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.

Materials:
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.

Aggressiveness:
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.

Quality Control:
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!

Blade Alignment:
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!

Handle Compatibility:
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!

    I bought this on a whim, after having read the other reviews of the Maggard razors. I chose it based almost entirely on its looks. I received it 3 days after ordering and shaved my 5 day stubble off with 2 passes and some touch-ups. Feather blade with the weight of this handle is a shaving monster. Highly recommend.

    Another fine razor from Maggards! This one shaves as smoothly as the rest of their line up, but it has a couple of key differences. First it looks great. It stands out in a razor sea of stainless and chrome. The second is it’s weight. It is well balanced and behaved, but it is heavy. It’s nice on the cheeks, and awesome ATG under the neck. It’s a little more authoritative than average.

    The plating and blade alignment are perfect. This is in the middle for aggressiveness. The weight is nice. Very well balanced. This razor puts some higher end razors to shame for shave quality. For $20.00 you can’t go wrong.

    Ordered the MR6B on Feb 25th, and received it [and blade sampler] on the 28! WOW! I loaded up an Astra Platinum blade and did a shave. This razor is lovely; heavy handle and a smooth draw. I got an a amazing shave, first time out. This, coming from a guy who hasn’t used a DE razor since high school. This was the best $20 I spent, in quite a while

    I also traded a few ]promptly replied] emails with Casie. It is a pleasure to do business with a small, family company. I’ll be back.

    Bought this razor primarily for its good looks and I must say I was not disappointed in that regard. Even more importantly however, the razor shaves beautifully. As a relatively new DE user, I was still able to get pretty good results with it and it has been my go to razor these past few weeks.

    Wow,..truly an amazing shave with this razor! The looks and the weight of this model is outstanding, and the performance is above any razor I have used. Go ahead and get a Maggard razor you need this shaving experience!

    New to DE shaving and the MR6 black is my first safety razor. So far there has been no irritation and a great, close shave. Also let me say the shipping from Maggard is extremely fast. I will definitely be a returning customer.

    Ordered the MR6 solely on looks, as I had zero experience with safety razors. Super fast shipment and after watching the requisite YouTube videos I got to work. My first pass I was a little apprehensive and really didn’t think I was cutting anything it was so smooth. I have a full beard and was just trimming around my beard, after my 1st rinse I realized I had unknowingly shaved off about 1/2 of my beard. Great small business, customer service and products!!!!

    Got one of these from the Turn a Friend kit so it was supposed to have been a scratch and dent. Well the quality control must be top notch because there is one or two tiny little flaws one on the handle and one on the head but honestly I wouldn’t have noticed them had I not been looking for them knowing there had to be something. This razor is way heavier than I expected and even though it is my first DE I can tell this is a quality razor. I wasn’t expecting half the quality I received. Maggard has won a life time customer with this razor. I’m sure at some point I will end up with a few high end expensive razors that “might” be better but for now I can’t see needing an upgrade for a very long time. Even as nervous as I was I got a great shave in one pass with very minor irritation and one little nick due to an ingrown hair from my previous gillete fusion. Top notch product for a VERY VERY good price. I’m pretty sure this thing will survive a nuclear blast and keep on shaving.
