The Best Expert Barbershop Shave I've Ever Had...Without The Barbershop

I absolutely loved this shave.

I have tried everything:... straight razor blade, double edge straight blade, every advanced blade out there, and multiple disposals per shave -- and I've never had a more enjoyable shave.

To be fair, I was originally skeptical. I have really thick hair and sensitive skin so shaving is more of a chore than something that I can enjoy but this proved me wrong.

A great shave can be a refreshing and enjoyable experience.

I was originally skeptical of the multiple blades because my hair often gets pinched inside of the multiple blades but i was able to get a close shave with zero irritation, nicks or cuts. The blades were sharp, but stayed on the surface of my skin due to the rollers and the flex in the heavy and sturdy premium handle.

I cannot recommend these razors highly enough. They get delivered to me right on time and they last long enoough even if I shave every day, Actually... it is better tio shave every day then the bristle will not clog the blades. I also use the shaving soap rather than a gel as that seems almost purposefully designed to clog the blades and make you buy more! Trust me the soap here is good and is easy to rinse out the razor.read more

Well yes I am a woman but on looking for a new shaver for woman this came up as men's shavers are better apparently something I did not know but I... was sick of buying crap shaver after crap shaver in the woman's isle of the supermarket cost 5/6 quid then £10 for replacement heads and missing hair the hairs on my legs and other places woman shave ha so I was sceptical with having to subscribe and that. Well I've just used it and my god what a bloody difference I'm so shocked I will never touch a woman's shaver AGAIN!! My only downside maybe for me being a woman is the weight of the handle bit I can live with that for a stressfree 5mins of perfect shaving 100% 5 star for me thanksread more

Love the new blades! The moving head is so much better and I think the new one lasts for longer. Also, the handle is much easier to use and I like... the weight. Awesome change, guys!read more

Honestly the best shave I've ever had. New design is great, the rolling pin is a stroke of genius! Only thing I would say is the handle could do with... a better grip, difficult to hold with wet hands.read more

The latest design of blade is honestly the best shave I've ever had. They do exactly what you say they're going to do. The extra spacing between... blades means they really don't get clogged like other 5 blade heads do, they're a smooth shave, and there's much less razor burn. Props to you Colonel, you've nailed this one.read more

I've been using the Bearded Colonel'so razors for more than a year
Good price, prompt delivery, excellent shave.
Then new version arrived. I... couldn't figure how to put it together
But amazing customer support got me going quickly.
Can't praise The Colonel too highly. Not often you get quick personal answers from the boss man these days
BUT YOU DO WITH THE COLONEL!!

Ok, after being with this company for 2 years and using their razors daily i was even more delighted when i received the new... upgraded blades, the ones before were great and i could never complain.... BUT the new ones are even better with a great handle to go with them - its an even smoother shave along with trimming my sideburns. I am so delighted and will never leave these guys (Especially with such a great price)read more

Decided to sign up about 3 months ago as a convenient solution to one of life's most boring chores - remembering to buy new razor blades. Even though... marginally more expensive than a bag of 8 or 10 throwaways I'm absolutely delighted with my decision. The blades are excellent quality and stay sharp for more than a week, so that the four per consignment easily outlast the month. In combination with a return to brush & soap rather than 'instant' shaving cream they really do deliver the best daily shave I've ever experienced. I shall be sticking with the Colonel. Thank you.read more

I've been using for just over a month now and only just found a need to change to my second blade. The shave for me is at least as good as... Gillette's exsp[ensive products but I'm starting to think it's better. I've started using a shaving oil after a shower and then small amount of Nivia gel - it's a winner. My only small issue is it doesn't have a trim blade but I hear that is in planning. Great product. Thank you.read more

Having had the pleasure of shaving with this brilliant razor for well over 12 months, I have now hunted through my various washbags/bathroom cabinets... etc and thrown away all other razors - none come near this outstanding product. My one urgent plea is for you to produce one for ladies - just a different colour? so that mine doesn't get nicked/borrowed!read more

Excellent razors and lately excellent socks, too. In my line of work - schoolmastering at a somewhat conservative establishment - black socks are... part of the rig, and a pair offering comfort without holes in the toes are a boon - along with just a minimum of decoration and elan, though somewhat short of the barking mad stripe variety. The fact three new pairs come along just when their forebears have gone missing is great, too.read more

Normally I only ever comment about services but I going to break my own rule now. The blades are excellent. They do exactly what it says on the... very nice tin they are packaged in. What I really really like is the quality of the service that this company supplies. The concept of delivered blades of quality is so complimentary with the service provided. I hate trying to get blades from the supermarket with all the security tags and boxes that those guys at the till always have problems with. To have these blades just arrive is magnificent. Well done. Now a product idea! (This may get a little personal). Any chance of a larger head of blades.... for body hair removal (chest hair and curly bits if you get my drift). It always seems strange to have to use a small blade head for such a large space to shave. Anyway, that product idea is free for you to use (just give me a lifetime supply of blades if you use the idea).read more

My new razor arrived today. I have just had my first shave, and I wouldn't have believed how good or the difference compared to what I have been... using, if I hadn't tried it for myself. That's the best shave I have had in 20 years and I even feel better for it. For years I have struggled with cheap supermarket blades, that cut me and well are rubbish. The sandalwood shaving cream is rich and lathers well and with the brush just feels and so much nicer to use. I would fully recommend these to anyone.read more

Best razors I've ever used!

Now on my second set of razor heads and all I can say is WOW. These are by far the best razors I have ever used... and at such great value.

I wet shave my head twice a week and these razors give an exceptional shave which surpasses any high street brand. The soap is extremely rich, lathers very well and smells great.

The only thing I would change would be to include a single precision blade for cutting in..

Thanks guys, one very happy customer !

In my old codgerdom now and I have tried many blades in the past most noticeably A fine blade from Solingen steel in Germany, this was a 1960's... custom made cut throat type razor, this came with a leather strop for fine sharpening. I used many of the various Gillette blades and Wilkinson types over the years, some were better than others The best shave I have ever discovered is the razor and blades provided by the Bearded Colonel. Top quality, first rate and long lasting.read more

Only my second shave so just a 4 so far but the shave is excellent. If the blades last long enough for me it'll be a 5. More of a surprise is the... quality of the shaving soap. Never again will I buy cheap soap. This may be more expensive but you need so little. It soaps up forever so it will probably last as long as the cheap stuff. So far so smooth. These blades give a great shave.read more

ive just upgraded my subscription to every month.

Got my handle and blades today. Ordinarily, I don't leave my stubble to grow more than 6 or 7 days at the most before shaving (it grows pretty... slowly) but on this occasion, it was more like 10 days since my last shave so the blade was going to get as stiff a test as its ever going to get. My first concern was whether the blade would clog up. It did, just a little, but not to a point where I would complain. Considering how relatively thick my beard was this time, a little clogging was understandable and no fault of the blade. The beard came off quickly and easily and I had a nice feel to my face with no cuts or soreness afterwards. I am pleasantly surprised as I did have my doubts and would rate this blade every bit as good as the Gillette Fusion that I have used for many years now. I will post again once I have used the blade a few more times and with my other, preferred shaving cream, Truefitt and Hills No.10. From a first impression perspective, I would recommend this blade to anyone.read more

Got the five bladed colonel and handle not really expecting a great deal as I have been shaving for nearly 40yrs and only really been happy with one... razor. Had tried a couple of the new one's lately. Although they were OK either the blade was good and the handle not so good or other way round. Got the colonel, well, handle is very well weighted and shaped can't say how good it is apart from excellent. The blade surprised me, get a very good shave even after 5/6 uses but it can get into the awkward area around the nose without any problem and that to me is the sign of a good blade. Bonus that the price is fair as well. Think I've found my favourite razor and blade for the next forty yearsread more

Took delivery of my first blades last week. I also purchased the brush and cream, as advised on the website. I wasn't quite expecting such... astonishing results. I haven't experienced such a close shave as this in all of my life. Shaving really has become a joy. The badger hair brush and the sandlewood soap are worth their weight in gold, but the blades are absolutely top notch. Extremely happy to subscribe, and it absolutely buries any Gillette razor I've ever used. Excellent service.read more

Received my razor and blades a couple of weeks ago I must say I was very impressed. The weight of the razor is very comfortable in your hand giving... you complete control for a close clean shave as I said I've had them a couple of weeks now and I shave most days and I am still using the first blade it's as good now as the first time I used it. Wish I had of known of your product before I will definitely recommend them to friends and family. I'll maybe go the whole way in the future and try the shaving soap and brush for the complete package.
Kind regards

I received my first razors in mid February and they last for ages, remaining sharp and giving an excellent close shave. My brother has signed up too,... but unfortunately the clip on his razor handle was broken on arrival. I contacted the Colonel on his behalf and within hours a new handle was in the post.
Excellent products, superb customer service and much cheaper than the mainstream brands. I highly recommend The Bearded Colonel !

Like most shavers, I was getting a little annoyed having to consider taking out another mortgage each time I needed new blades. I decided to take the... plunge with The Bearded Colonel and from the first shave,I've been very pleasantly surprised.. The quality of the blades is excellent as is that of the shaving cream. Being retired, I'm not in a rush in the mornings and so now, thanks to The Bearded Colonel, shaving has become a pleasant, morning ritual.read more

Hello again. Thought that you might like further feedback on my recent purchase.

It is now 20 days since I started using your razor. I am... surprised to say, that despite having a fairly heavy beard, I am still using the same blade and whilst it is clearly nearing the end, still giving me a good and acceptable shave.

There has been no repeats of any soreness after shaving and I have acclimatised to the razor's weight. I now consider that I receive a shave as close, if not closer, than my previous blades.

It will be my intention that as long as the blades remain of the same quality, I will continue to use your product.

Thank you!
Richard

First of all the blades are very good I'm pleased with them at the minute ordered them and got them very quickly which was great I had a email to say... my order had been received and would be dispatched. I must say though I was disappointed with customer service though. When I ordered I pressed the key for the shaving cream and brush costing £20 by mistake I couldn't find a method of removing this so I thought I would order this and email them straight away to cancel the cream and brush. And that's what I did seconds after I placed the order not once but twice I did it a little later that day but the full order came as not requested (probably my fault for not being very good with computers ) I have emailed the bearded colonel again telling them about the situation but haven't heard anything yet. If they can respond quickly to a order why Carnt they response to my emails. So for that reason I give the blades 4star the customer service 2starread more

These are good blades delivered quickly. The first use delivered the sharpest cut from a manual blade I can recall, really smooth and close. It will... be interesting to see how long the blades last but the initial impression is that they are just as good if not better than the major brands. Part of the reason for this is that these are straightforward five blade razors without unnecessary complications.
Unlike the main brands they don't have the gimmickry of features such as a "hydrating gel reservoir" or an additional sixth blade for trimming. This keeps the head design straightforward. This means that the head does the important job of cutting your facial hair well without trying to lubricate which is what you use a gel or shaving oil for. There is a simple protective strip on the blade but nothing that is over complicated.
The absence of a (sixth) trimming blade helps keep the cost of blades down as you're not paying for something you don't use regularly and the simple design means that the blades wash out well after use.. The small plastic head protector keeps the packaging to a minimum too.
Like all blades the cut degrades a bit after the initial use but all in all so far I feel good about having subscribed..

Absolutely SUPERB product. Have been blindly using the same Gillette razors since the day I started shaving, and didn't really think it could be any... other way. I'm glad I stand corrected. My old razor has been banished to the bin, never to grace my bathroom again.

The closest shave I've had outside of a barbershop. Lasts the whole day, whereas I inevitably used to shave before going out in the evening. Love the angle of the blade to the handle and the grip.
