    I generally like this starter kit. wish it included a stand and bowl. I did know that going in so I did purchase them. added about $30 to the total. I would recommend the company loading these items to purchase additionally when getting the starter pack like the aftershave and alum choices. I did get several samples of soaps and aftershaves to try. would recommend that as you can’t tell the smell through the computer screen and unless you used them before going to be hard to tell what you like. Razor was nice quality. I purchased a few other DE razors at the time. MR6 was in this kit. It had a good feel. about the standard length of a cartilage razor but heavier. I also got the V3 head. using Astra superior premium Platinum blades. I am happy with the results as a first time ever using DE razor. The key to DE shaving is taking your time and getting good products. The definition of good depends on the person. That is why I liked the samples and kits. Get a start and got to try several different soaps aftershaves and blades.

    Great starter kit. I’m a new safety razor user and must say I am pleased.
    The razor I chose is a bit heavy for my liking but it will work.
    The brush I chose I not the best but it works. Bristles constantly falling out.

    Now to see how much I will be saving.

    Yes I did 4 out of 5 star. Why? Nothing truly deserves 5 stars.
    Oh ya the shipping to California was super fast.

    Yes I recommend even though it’s not personable.

    Very happy with this kit. I ordered the synthetic brush, MR7 handle, V3 head, and London Barbershop soap. I really like the scent of the soap and my wife has commented on it as well. The delivery was very fast (2 days) and I started using it right away.

    This is the first time I’ve used a DE kit to shave and I’ve been very happy with it after watching a couple of YouTube videos. The shave was great, two passes made my face very smooth and since I’ve found one pass is good for a “quick shave” which is pretty comparable in time to cartridges.

    I ordered the MR7 because I have larger hands and figured a longer handle would be useful, but after using it for a week, I can’t say that a shorter handle would have been bad. Since I’m just using 2-3 fingers to control the razor, I don’t think it matters. I’m not unhappy with the MR7, but I don’t think I would have been unhappy with a shorter one either.

    So far, I’ve only used the Astra Platinum blades, but I’m happy with them. I’m interested in seeing how the other blades perform in comparison.

    This kit makes it really easy to jump into DE shaving and takes all of the guess work out of it. The only thing to be cautious about is to make sure you get the V3 head if you’re completely new like me. Reading some forums before the purchase, people who struggled with this kit got the V3A and found it to be less new-guy friendly.

    Got the set with the MR-11 handle and the V3 head-Omega Boar 11574 and the Maggard Lime and Bergamot soap. This is one great setup. My wife likes mine so much she wants me to get her the women set now! This was my first order from Maggard and will not be my last. Super great products and service, nicely priced and fast shipping. Thanks

    Great kit! I chose the Lime & bergamot soap and it is awesome. The Maggards brush is superb and I couldn’t be happier with my first order from this great company. Do yourself a favor and after putting this kit in your cart head over to the discontinued samples and grab a few. The Chiseled Face orange creamsicle after shave is great! Can’t wait to shave again….never thought I’d say that.

    I purchased this kit just last week deciding on the MR11 handle and V3 head. The soap was Proraso White and the brush was the Omega Boar hair 13564. Being new to wet shaving this kit has made me a lifetime customer! It was shipped quickly (even though I’m only a 2 hour drive away) and I was surprised by the weight and quality of the razor.
    The Proraso White soap that I chose was kind of a bad choice on my part though. It leaves a white film on my razor and brush as well as making my face a little dryer than I’d like. If I had the chance to do it over I would go with a Maggard soap for sure. (Going on the quality of their other products)
    I also opted to add an alum block from the “scratch and dent” section which was another score. The block arrived with barely a blemish and works perfectly for half the price!

    In a nutshell all I can say is thank you and I can’t wait for my next purchase.
    10/10 will recommend to a friend

    After having skin issues stemming from my electric shaver, I decided to give DE shaving a try. As a beginner to wet shaving, this kit made it simple for me to obtain everything I needed to begin shaving as soon as the package arrived at my door. I opted for the MR6 handle and V3 head, and I am pleased with the performance. Take that with a grain of salt, however, since it IS my first DE. The fit and finish are quite satisfactory, with a solid feel and no obvious deformities.

    In addition to the razor, I also chose the synthetic Maggard brush with the marble handle. The handle is VERY attractive! I can’t really speak to the quality of the synthetic brush, due as much to my ignorance of brush materials as to my absence of lathering technique.

    I picked the Proraso Green Tea & Oat shaving soap and aftershave lotion, both of which smell FANTASTIC! And, the woman in my life agrees.

    Overall, I am very satisfied with the products I received, and even more so with the communication from Maggard throughout the process. I’ll definitely be back to try some more soap once I run out!

    Ordered this starter set as a first comer to wet shaving and as a gift for my groomsmen. First impression is WOW. I did quite a bit of research before pulling the trigger on the right set from the right place and I couldn’t be happier. They responded to a question I sent via the “Contact Us” tab as though I was already longtime customer. Personal opinions and cordial responses give their professionalism true integrity. They shipped very quickly with tracking and kept me informed the entire way. Now let’s get to the products. This review will contain visual impressions upon receipt whereas performance impressions will be mentioned in further reviews for each individual product apart from this set.

    The Razor: I chose the Maggard MR6 as reviews on both YouTube and this site suggested it was a good starter razor with excellent weight. Upon arrival, the razor was very nicely chromed with a hefty weight. The longer handle feels as though it gives you more control and the Maggard logo is etched into the bottom of the handle. The head of the razor has a few minor dings, likely due to coming into contact with the others I purchased for the previously mentioned groomsmen gifts. The underside of the head, which you only see upon loading the blade, is chromed but is not polished to a mirror finish. This falls in line with their mission statement to provide a quality functioning razor at a reasonable price. It will have no effect on the shave. Overall a very attractive razor with a quality feel.

    The Shaving Soap: I went with their Maggard London Barbershop Shave soap in the full 5oz jar. The scent is amazing with a classic barbershop scent. Every time you take a whiff, another subtle scent comes through and adds depth to the fragrance. Great clean masculine scent. The soap is slightly soft and with just a short press, you can feel slickness. They outsource their soap to a local artisan soap maker which adds to the support of local business. Clean packaging and only 7 ingredients gives this soap a great presentation.

    The Brush: Chose the Omega 20102 100% Boars Hair Brush. The contrast between the black and the wood make this a very attractive brush. Out of the box, it has only a minor animal scent to the bristles and will likely fade quickly with use. The backbone is quite nice as when I picked it up out of box, I assumed the length of the bristles would provide a very flimsy feel. The handle is a good hefty size allowing for easy grip. This brush does not fell like the affordable price it’s offered at and I look forward to the performance review.

    The Rest: The kit came with two 5 packs of razors and a choice between a styptic pencil or an alum block. Went with the their brand alum block so as to stay with the Maggard theme and the block is large enough to last quite awhile. Small durable plastic case adds to the clean packaging that Maggard seems to have for all their products.

    Overall very pleased with the value and quality during in-boxing of this set. Superior customer service has me hooked and I will be ordering all supplies from Maggard in the future. Research definitely paid off in finding the right store and Maggard’s research in the right products made this a very satisfying purchase experience.

    I bought this set at about 2:00 am Saturday morning (online of course) it arrived Monday. Yes I know it only went from Michigan to Indiana, but still 2 days is great. I ordered the MR22 because some of the reviews on this sight reported that I would not have to “center” the blade, The razor is a touch heavy, however completely managable. I am starting with the Astra superior platinum blades. Recieved set Monday, started using Monday. I wetted the SE1 pure badger brush with hot water and dabbed into soap, it appeared only a dozen or so flakes got onto brush, dabbed again and added only a dozen more flakes, I questioned my soap decision, needlessly . Gave lathering a try and the small amount of soap on brush lathered up fine. Started the shaving proceedure wondering how many nicks I was going to get, however just reading many of the reviews about shaving slow, I proceeded at a slow pace. I did not get to try my Maggard alum on Monday or Tuesday. Shaveing went fine. Had a great shave.When the Guys at work ask why I went this style of shaving, I just stated “75 cents to $1.50 a pack is why.” I checked out MANY razor sights before I ordered here, However, after the fact, while still new, I feel that I have made a wise chioce.

    Fantastic selection of items for the double edge beginner.
    I researched my selection for weeks and Maggards Razors provided what seemed to be the most well rounded kit at a decent price. I didn’t know how accurate that thought was until I received my package. I thoroughly enjoyed my first double edge shave with Proraso White, a derby blade, and the MR3 razor. I have now started to look forward to my morning shave rather than dreading it.

    I will of course be a long time customer thanks to the great service and selection of items. Thank you Brad and Casie!

    After extended research and comparisons I decided to go with this starter kit. I chose the MR1, Omega 20102 brush, London Barbershop Soap. And I am so happy with my purchase. Brad and Cassie answered all my questions quickly and my package arrived in a timely fashion. I will definitely be a long time customer of Maggard Razors.

    I bought this for my husband for Christmas and he loves it.
    He says he gets a better shave and it is so much more economical!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 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.

    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!

  20. 5 out of 5


    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 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 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.

    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’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!!

    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.
