    Very high quality and at an unbeatable price. The soap lathers well, and has a pleasant scent (I got lime and bergamot scent). The razor is nice and hefty, I’m sure it will last more than my lifetime. The synthetic brush is of excellent quality, no shedding whatsoever. Glad I could support an American company.

    Bought the MR6 and Declaration Grooming Original for my kit, which was my first foray into DE shaving. I am so glad i made the jump as i am loving everything about it. Soap smells great and the razor feels great in the hand and shaves wonderfully. I’m still trying out a number of blades to find the right one, but I love all the stuff i got from Maggard.

    I bought this starter kit and loved it. The MR1 handle and V3 head were perfect for starting out. The combination of good hardware and the Limes & Bergamot soap made my first wet shave experience an awesome one. The Astra blades that came with this set came highly recommended from the online wet shaving community for a beginner blade.

    Even the packaging was nice. I’ve never seen that type of packing peanut before, they looked like white Cheetos. Kudos on the packing peanut choice guys. And the Maggard Razors packaging tape looks nice and professional. I would buy from this retailer just for the packaging experience. I have a package fetish I guess.

    Thanks Maggards!

    I recently purchased this set and I think it’s the best starter kit you can get for the price. I’ve had mine for a little over two weeks and the MR18 that I purchased is great. The ability to choose what kind of razor you want (length, weight, design) makes this bundle a great choice to purchase if you’re just starting out.

    This is my first DE razor and I’m so glad I went with Maggard’s. Not only was the free shipping super fast, everything works so well and is quality. I’ll be buying all my shaving things from Maggard’s. I have bigger hands so I went with the MR18 and it feels really good in the hand. Overall if you’re on the fence about getting this set, please stop wondering and researching. This set is all you need to start.

    This is my first DE and I love it. I chose the MR11 because i like a heavier razor, still trying to decide which blade i like better, the Astra or the Gillette 7, but the razor works great, Add super fast shipping and good customer service and you get a good recipe for repeat business. Thanks again

    A review from Brazil ! The Kit is excellent ! the London Barbershop scent is really good, the shaving brush is awsome ! the head has the right agressive. The only concearn is about the MR9 handle: the size and weight are excellent but when your hand is full of soap it get verry slippery… i think the MR7 would be a better option.

    This was a perfect gift for my boyfriend for Christmas so stoked to give it to him. This was exactly what he wanted and everything was in place when it arrived everything looks just how it is online which is a plus.

    Got this kit as my starter wet shaving kit, really enjoyed the shaves and I highly recommend it to anyone who is new to wet shaving. Every item in this kit are of good quality and you are getting real value!

    Just what you need as a starter kit. I just started using a DE razor and I am really enjoying it. I got the m11 handle, guess it’s a bit heavier than the others, anyhow I’m very pleased with everything. I will be trying an open comb next. Definitely recommend this starter kit.

    Highly recommended if you want to get started with wet shaving. I bought this kit and never looked back! The kit comes with a great synthetic brush that lathers up well, as well as a sampler of three brands of blades to get a feel for what you need. I already recommended it to four people. Welcome to the wet shaving rabbit hole!

    I have had this kit for about two months. This is a great kit, but I don’t consider it a starter kit. Other than the consumables – shaving soap and blades – it’s all that you will need for a long time! It is a great price, and I have had outstanding results with the products in the kit. The MR11 handle, V3 head, and brush are great, and there is little need to try other handles, heads, or brushes. (For kicks, I did later purchase the more aggressive V3A head.) These are all the tools needed to wet shave for years to come. Wet shaving has been a great switch from the more popular cartridges and aerosol cans of foam. I get a closer and much less irritating shave.

    The Maggard London Barbershop shaving soap makes a great lather for a close and comfortable shave. I have tried samples of other soaps out of curiosity, but am happy sticking with the Maggard London Barbershop soap. One additional benefit of the Maggard soap in the starter kit is that the container is smaller (2 oz.) than the typical 4 oz. container, so it fits in my travel kit better. Many mornings, I get ready in a locker room, so the space savings in my travel kit is appreciated. I will keep the container and refill it with the same or other soaps for my travel kit.

    The customer service at Maggard Razors is second to nonel! This order was my first try at wet shaving. Penny was very patient, answered all my questions, did not try to upsell me on anything. In fact, she emphasized starting by spending less money and finding out what I like. That is so honest and refreshing!

    Stop wasting time on internet research and shopping and call Maggard’s customer service. You will save time, money, and get honest and practical information!!

    My kit arrived over a week ago and I’ve never been able to shave so often, cartridge/disposable razor burn and ingrown hairs a are a thing of the past. The weight on the safety razor and the chrome finish, the brush handle and synthetic knot remind me of a kabuki makeup brush but adding backbone to handle the soap, the soap scent and ease of lathering, EVERY PIECE IS ON POINT… the kit alone will give you north of 45 shaves AT THE VERY LEAST (more like 60!), that’s insane value for a regular shaver.

    The only thing that really bummed me during purchase was how fast the London Barbershop scent option goes out of stock! International economy shipping was fast and packaging was about right.

    Got mine in the mail today and all I can say is OMG I haven’t had a shave this clean since before I grew facial hair. I bought the m6, and all I can say again is wow. The weight of the razor coupled with the London barber shop shave soap had the blade gliding against the skin. A little aggressive but great save use zero pressure and a Astra blade you will not be sorry. The lather brush is fantastic soft and builds a great lather I can’t wait till my next shave.

    Great stuff, came with everything I needed. I just wish I could take my razor on the place. Using an electric razor sucked.

    Best starter kit out there. Maggard’s razors rival anything out there in terms of quality and efficiency. I chose the MR11 handle, and with the V3 head it creates a winning combo for a comfy, close shave. In fact, I loved the razor so much I purchased a MR7 handle and one of their V2 OC heads because I wanted something a bit more aggressive for my thick Italian stubble. Again, I wasn’t disappointed.

    As for the soap and brush, I chose London Barbershop, and it is one of the best soaps I have used in terms of lather and scent. My wife loves the smell of this soap. Maybe Maggards soap is the reason my son is going to be a brother in September…but, I digress…

    The Maggards brush that comes with the kit is now the only brush I use, enough said.

    Basically, if you are new to wet shaving and are looking for a starter set, you can’t beat Maggards. Everything about them is golden.

    Great starter kit! Can’t go wrong. The razor is excellent. I went with the Lime soap and will be ordering more. Nice little selection of blades and the brush performs better than i had expected. Good stuff!

    Terrific kit with everything you need. The Lime soap smells great. Well run company with high quality products.

    Got this kit a couple weeks ago and couldn’t be more pleased. The razor is super solid, the bush feels fantastic and best of all the Lime and Bergamot shaving soap smells and feels great. Great products and glad to support a Michigan business.

    Just picked up this kit last week and so far it’s been awesome! Sad that the “London Barbershop” soap was out of stock when I ordered but the “Mango Sage Tea” soap has been great. Also the shipping was super fast. If you are looking for an inexpensive way to get into wet shaving this is the kit for you.
