The good people at Dorco reached out to me and asked if I’d like to try their razor, the Pace 7, and their new Dorco Creme Shaving Cream.  They also hooked the TSB readers up with a 20% off coupon code (you’ll have to read this article to the end for the code).

If you can get over the brand name (sounds like dork-o when you say it out loud), the Pace 7 is a decent razor.  One of my biggest pet-peeves with men’s grooming products is that the majority of them lack sophistication and look like toys rather than something an adult could proudly display on their bathroom sink.  The Pace 7 falls somewhere in-between, as I’m happy that it doesn’t have fluorescent colors (although Dorco does have some razors that do) but still reminds me of a razor you’d see hanging out of the shower caddy of a Sophomore in a college dorm.  It provides a decent shave, though, and if you’re looking to save some coin, Dorco’s products are significantly cheaper than most competitors.

The real star of this review was the Dorco Creme Shaving Cream.  That stuff is the bomb diggity (do people still say bomb diggity? off the chain? I’m losing touch man I don’t know how to describe cool shit anymore).  I made the mistake of shaving without it the first time, using some other shave gel, and my experience was rough.  The second and third time around using the Pace 7 with the Dorco Creme I was in heaven.  My skin felt great and the shave was excellent.  This magical serum is a bargain at $6 for 3.38oz (I’d easily pay $10 for it).  I just wish it was 3oz so I could bring it with me on flights when I go on short trips.  My only gripe with it is that they call it “D Creme” on their website.  C’mon, guys.  I don’t care how good the product is, no man wants to rub “D Creme” all over their face.  Call it Creme D.  There.  Problem solved.

Ignore my stubby fingers and check out the Pace 7 razor.  Like I mentioned above, it’s a little more subtle than your average razor, which I like.  While I’ll never make it as a hand model, I can see the Pace 7 making it into bathrooms of young men worldwide.  This thing has 7 blades.  Seriously.  From the Dorco website:

Welcome to the next level. Close has never been closer.

  • The World’s First and Only 7 Blade System.
  • 7 Precision Aligned Blades: Micro Positioned to deliver the most comfortable and smooth shave.
  • Venetian Flow™: Allows for easy rinsing. This feature also increases blade life.
  • Advanced Moisturizing Strip: Antioxidants from Argan oil and Calendula extract minimizes skin irritation.
  • Honeycomb Guard Bar: Soft rubber surface allows effortless gliding on the skin.
  • Common Docking: Any Dorco® 3, 4, 6 or 7 blade cartridge will fit on this system allowing you to discover the perfect shave.

With all those blades I assumed hair would get trapped up in it after shaving.  The “Venetian Flow” system seems to work, though, and the razor rinsed easily after use.  I’m still rocking a beard, so I didn’t give myself a full shave with this razor, but check out the before and after to see what type of job it did on my neck

I didn’t go crazy going over and over my neck with the Pace 7, because it didn’t feel like I had to.  It was a decently close shave, but closest ever?  Not quite.  If and when I decide to ditch the beard, I’ll have to use this razor again with a fresh cartridge to see how it stacks up to other razors I’ve used in the past.

When it came to shaving with the Pace 7, the D Creme made all the difference.  I shaved once with a different shaving gel, and I felt like the razor was pulling a bit.  After using the D Creme to shave I’ll find it hard to go back to anything else.  It goes on smooth, feels great during and after shaving.  It has an extremely pleasant mentholated scent to it that is manly as fuck, but doesn’t leave you smelling like your uncle who overdoses on Brut aftershave. This stuff will be a staple in my grooming kit for a long time.  I can’t recommend it enough.
