Harry's_Truman Shave Set

 

QUICK REVIEW:

Aesthetics: A+

Utility: B

Quality: B+

Price/Value: A

Overall: B+

 

Razors are expensive if you’re buying top-of-the-line cartridges from the big brands like Gillette or Schick.  The razor heads they sell have 5 blades or more, and tend to come in loud colors designed to catch a shopper’s eye as they browse the shaving isle at the local super market or pharmacy.  Harry’s wants to change the game with their high-quality razors and shave cream which they ship directly to you at an affordable price.  The Truman set will run you $15, but it includes everything you need to get a clean shave plus two refill blade cartridges.  For comparison’s sake, the Gillette Fusion ProGlide FlexBall razor will set you back around $20, and that does not include shaving cream or a travel cover for your blade.

Enough about the competitor’s products, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty with Harry’s Truman Set.  First off, their presentation is top-notch.  The handle looks sleek as hell, and is the first razor I’ve ever owned that I actually want to leave out on my sink.  They give you options on the color choice (Total Orange, Nautilus Blue (Navy), Ivory, and Olive 107) and I went with Ivory because I thought it was a good look (and it is).  The travel cap for your razor is an awesome touch, and I don’t understand why every other company doesn’t have one.  Bottom-line, Harry’s razor looks great.  The shave though?  Just OK.

If I’m going to keep it real, Harry’s is better than the Schick Hydro, Gillette Mach 3, and any other lesser brand (those Bic throw aways are cuts waiting to happen).  The shave you’ll get from Harry’s is decent, but you don’t get the same comfort and ease as you do with the Gillette Fusion ProGlide FlexBall.  BUT, I’m willing to sacrifice the best shave I’ve ever had for a razor that gets the job done and doesn’t look like a child’s toy on my sink counter.  The sheer fact that Harry’s looks classy as hell (I plan on upgrading to their chromed out Winston set) makes it my razor of choice.
