I have noticed a few new reviews of the Razorine on Youtube (Summer 2018). It seems to have become available in recent months. Most say it compares with a DE more than a Shavette. Has anyone bought and used one of these razors? If so, I would appreciate any feedback. It looks like an interesting tool to try and add to a hobbier's collection.

This thing???

It's an oar for a Barbie boat!

It is a DE with a handle in the wrong place.

I use straights most of the time, and the design of the above razor seems to have one of the biggest flaws straight razors have - the fact that the handle is in line with the blade edge.

This means (for me) that some shave angles are very difficult to get or even impossible. With a regular safety razor, you just change the angle of the head any which way by spinning the handle a bit. With a straight, to change angles you have to change the angle of your wrist and/or elbow to angle the blade.

I'm not explaining this as well as I'd like, but even though I use both hands equally well when I shave with a straight, I still find some shave angles to be pretty much impossible. This razor will probably have the same issues for me.

(All this being said, I still get excellent shaves with a straight - I just have to skin stretch and use multiple angles.)

EDIT: To answer the OP's question: No, I haven't used it, and would also be interested in hearing about the experiences of someone who has. I like the fact that it's different.

Pretty cool-- I would slice my face all up--- I tried with the feather AC and pretty much bled out into the sink. Wish I could do it as easy as he makes it look.

+1, also with straights and AC-type shavers. Smile
