Today marks day one of my wet shaving journey. I recieved the Godfather by Viking Blade in the mail. I used the included razor that came with it and, despite a couple nicks, i like it. I expected to nip myself a couple times especially since im used to the cartridge style razors that self adjust to your face. Im curious about other peoples experience with Viking Blade brand safety razors.

Welcome to DFS. Smile I'm not familiar with the razor but notice the company is based in Melbourne, Australia. Is it widely known Down Under?

Im not sure. I ordered it from amazon. It was at a good price point imo. Plus, it had mostly great reviews and it came with blades so i figured it would be a nice start. Im located in the USA. I like it thus far.

Here's my $0.02 on the vendor and his products. Decent razors, but they're actually generic PRC-made imports that can be obtained from several other sources for a fraction of Vikings Blade's asking price. The vendor will claim he has patents/patents pending, but offers no proof when asked, and a search of the U.S. Patent Office yields nothing.

The travel case/mirror is a nice touch, but it's also standard with the Chinese Baili, which is what this razor is. The "Swedish" (Chinese?) blades that ship with the razor suck. The VB shaving cream is okay, but it's over-priced and it doesn't last long.

Most of the reviews on Amazon were solicited by the vendor and are obviously over the top in their effusive praise; hence, take them with several grains of salt. Don't fall for the marketing machismo and bogus claims.
