OK, so I watched several videos, and decided to give it a try because I'm tired of spending $30 bucks a month on cartridges. Man, this guy was fast. I ordered on Monday April 6, 2015, and I got it today April 9, 2015. I must admit, I'm excited and nervous at the same time because I have never used anything else but a cartridge, and I'm 45. I decided on the Geo Set" 34C Shaving Kit with EHPB Brush. I have decided that I will get over it and use it tomorrow. I will post an update once I use it. Thanks Geo for the videos

I Can't say enough good things about Shave Nation. Service is excellent. Products are the best. Shipping was fast. I ordered "Black Tie" shave soap and was impressed! Why this isn't a cologne is a mystery to me. The videos are a great help and entertaining to boot. Keep up the good work. You have a client for life.

I just made my first purchase from Shave Nation. I can't say enough good things about my experience. The packaging was great and quality. It got to me in like 2 days. The bowl itself has made a huge difference in shaving. I have purchased several types of bowls from different sellers but always had some difficulties in getting a good lather. This is the perfect shape for whipping up a great lather. It may sound crazy but it is true. My other bowls were too deep or too narrow. I will definitely be back!

About a year ago I was interested in switching to a safety razor and brush. Some searching led me to Geo's videos and the Shave Nation site. Was very impressed with Geo as a person and his knowledge of the products. His competitive prices and customer service sold me and I purchased everything (and continue to purchase) exclusively from him. I use the Merkur HD 34C safety razor, Shave Nation badger tip brush, Feather blades, Taylor of Old Bond Street Almond shave cream and Pinaud Clubman after shave lotion. In addition, I use Pinaud Clubman styling gel for my hair. All wonderful products and all purchased from Shave Nation. Everything always arrives quickly and is packaged well. Could not be happier with my shaves and hair styling now. I look better and feel better, can't beat it! Thanks so much for the great service and products, Geo and I look forward to doing more business with you in the new year!

I received my new Muhle R41 (The Beast) last Friday and have used it 5 times so far. My only prior experience with an open comb razor was with a 1920s to 1930's Gillette which are milder than the R41. I started off by using the Derby Extra that came with it. I've never been a huge fan of Derby but it was okay. Only 2 very minor nicks from Derby blades in the lower portion of my neck which has always been a problem area.. After the third 3 pass shave I switched to my second favorite blade, the Astra Superior Premium. No nicks and an extremely smooth shave. After the 3rd shave with the Astra's I'll be trying my favorite, Feather's. So far I like the R41 better than my Merkur Futur. Thanks Geo for your help, suggestions and videos!
P.S. No blood baths as some folks have posted on other sites.

WOW! Holy Follicles Fatman! Just had the best & closest shave outside of a cut throat barber shop job I've experienced since I got out of the Marines back in '67. My new Merkur Futur razor was delivered this morning and I followed the advice GFB provides about pre-shave prep, lathering & letting the admittedly heavy razor do all the work in his YouToob video. No nicks, scrapes or misses using a Merkur Platinum blade. Great product, great advice & very fast delivery. Thanks from a very satisfied customer.
