Love the packaging and look of product.
Great deal, very durable and easy to use. Thank you
Great stand, great look, razer head doesn't seem like it will ever wear out. Only issue is the brush, expect more than a few hairs to jettison after you brush your soap on.
My wife bought me this kit without me knowing until I seen the notifications from amazon. It's an amazing looking set, love the weight an knurled feel of the razor. The stand is super sturdy and bowl works good, the brush works great as well. Can't comment on the blades that came with it as I only use feather blades. That's solely because I have thick course hair and that's the only blades I found that really suit me.
Great set. Looks great and works great.
Great set. However, the blades provided with the razor are not great. I found that shaving wither was like using a dull, rusty butter knife. Invest in some good blades and good shave soap. I really like this set.
I bought this so I could hang my razor and brush when I wasn't using them, unfortunately this set will only hold the brush that came with it, and not my Van der Hagen brush. The stand has a nice heavy base an doesn't tip over easily, but it only holds the razor that came with it, but that hangs at an angle when it is in the rest. I do like the length of the razor, but not the straight comb, I have been spoiled by my slanted comb Merkur, I thought I would put the Merkur's top on this razor but this razor is three pieces and the Merkur is two. I did not like the razor blades that came with this set, they would pull my hair out instead of cutting it. The one thing wrong with this set is the bowl, apparently it is meant only for shaving cream/butter and certainly not for soap discs. One of the discs I had would not fit at all diameter wise and I had it laying in the bowl at an angle, not did my smaller glycerin disc fit, this bowl is much too shallow. So there it is, you should have enough information to decide whether this product is for you or not.
Great starter kit for a new blade shaver. Good quality for a fair price.
My husband loves this! Great Christmas gift idea and he loves to have a nice longer shave on the weekends, it is easy clean up and the brush dries well! The razor also came with extra blades.
razor or the blades do not cut close

Love it! Best product

nicely made, gave it as a gift, good value for the price
I got this as a gift for a friend, he absolutely loves it. It is a heavy and high quality product, it's very classic looking. The only problem he has with it is that his soap pucks did not fit in the bowl.
Awesome gift, it was exactly what I expected. Sharp blade and looks very classy. Boyfriend loved it for his birthday!
My first wet shaving set so I have no comparison however I can say i do enjoy this kit and get a great shave. Greatest shave ever. For the money you can not beat the quality!
My dad loved this!
For the price this is an excellent deal. The razor assembly and generic blades themselves are of great quality, easy to use and comparable to more expensive counterparts. The stand is nice and fits everything nicely.The only thing wrong with the set is the brush. It is of inferior quality. Most people won't care, especially if you're new to wet shaving but I couldn't do it any longer.Attached is a picture of my new German-made Nom brush (Theo, Ash Wood handle, Badger Hair) vs. the one included with the Miusco kit. After using the Miusco brush, you can tell a few things right away.1) The bristles are rough. They're not that soft. I don't know if that's indicative of real or fake badger fur, but it's not even close to the softness of my Nom Theo.2) The bristles cut length and arrangement. You can see it's not as 'tight' of a cone. I'm not sure if that's a quality metric or not, but to me it indicates the density of hairs is not as high. So you get less 'lift' as you lather your face. Not sure if this matters to you or not, but I believe this makes the Nom superior construction.3) The handle is cheap plastic. Luckily my Ash wood Nom fits fine in the included holder.In the end, a great deal even though I'm only keeping the razor and stand. I would have loved if they improved the brush quality and increased the price point. Having a finished product that wouldn't require additional investment would have been ideal.
Great product and fast shipping. Love it. Thank you
Kit seems pretty solid. The bowl, stand and brush are all good. However, I am not able to get the included blades to make contact with my head. I basically just scraped foam off my head with the open combs. I have ordered another razor Merkur C34 and Astra blades to see if the blade or razor makes a difference. The other items in the kit seem like a good value. If the razor ends up working with better blades, all the better.
Great first safety razor kit. Bought it as my travel kit and while it's not as good as the razor I have at home it's far from bad. For the price it's a great value. The only thing I didn't like were the 10 included no brand blades.
Great gift for my Dad
They absolutely loved this gift.
My wife bought this for me. This is my 3rd DE razor and I really like it. Nice and heavy with a long handle. The brush is not too soft and creates a nice lather. I use Astra blades in it so I have no idea what quality the blades are. I would definitely recommend.
Extremely well made set. I was surprised at how solid everything was constructed. Great value for the money, highly recommend. Only caution that the razor that comes with the set is super sharp and you must shave very slow to avoid nicks or cuts.
The set looks nice, keeps my shaving stuff neat and the razor is comfortable.
Nice set, good razors, bowl too shallow for large pucks. I will replace the bowl with a handle puck cup. Easy to clean and looks nice.
Looks luxurious sitting on my counter. This was my first safety razor setup. I have since upgraded the brush and I rotate the razor with others. Great for a beginner or someone who wants to try Wet shaving. - Semper Fi
It works Great!!!! My Grandfat her used this to keep his skin clean shaven or trimmed as he wished. Works really well. All Men should learn how to shave the traditional way to maintain a good shave. You dont need to be clean shaven but atleast have some hair on your face to have Dignity for your skin.
My only complaint is with the shave brush, a few bristles come lose or fall out but I guess everything wears out eventually.
Been wanting one, wish I had bought it sooner.
We got this to Mach A set that we bought for my son. He loved it and keeps it displayed by the sink with his new razor. It's a great value and definitely an heirloom piece.
Great gift. Wasn't flimsy and had a nice finish.
I needed a new mug brush, and I came across this kit. The brush is nice and soft, though tough and stout. The bristles are a hair on the 'pokey' side, but that's the nature of these brushes. The stand is great, and the razor is nice and heavy-though the angle of the blade in this razor wasn't ideal for my shaving style, so I swapped my *known good* shaver head into this handle and the problem was resolved.At the beginning, I did happen to give this brush a sniff and it was pretty noxious. I gave it a few uses and checked it again and there was no dead animal smell to it. Again-it's the nature of real animal hair.
Bought as a birthday present for someone who is difficult to buy for! They loved it. Excellent quality and a good price. Looks great in the bathroom and a lot more expensive than the purchase price- packaging was good - just had to put a ribbon around it! Have bought similar items before and would now repurchase this one for future gifts as much better than the others I have bought. Would recommend.
I actually purchased this as a gift for my husband. He is quite impressed with it. It seems a quality item and it has a very sophisticated yet functional look about it.

It's very elegant but also quite functional.Highly recommended.
stand is heavy and will not tip over, but the felt on the bottom (or what ever cheap stuff it is) comes off and you'll will have it all over your counter (black fuzzy stuff) especially it its wet (duh it get wet).don't dry it with a towel because it will get black!i will not buy it again! it drives me nuts!UPDATE: 5 star costumer service! very fast response and resolved my concern to my satisfaction.plus, they're looking for a better material to avoid this happening.
I purchased this for my son and he loves it. He takes it with him everywhere he goes. (It's a good idea to keep the Box it comes in if you plan on transporting it)
Very close shave, better that my old one.
Oh my, my husband just ordered this while kit and has nothing but awesome raves about it except be very very careful unless you know how to use these razors as they are super sharp, but leave baby smooth skin.
I'm pleased with this product. The packaging was superb, and the razor, brush and soap holder sit well on the stand. I think the soap holder provided is simply to hold and load the soap onto the brush. I use a separate bowl (not included) To create the lather thickness I desire. I rinse the soap puck and the soap holder bowl provided and let The soap puck and bowl dry. (Personal preference In order to keep the soap holder bowl provided as clean and shiny as the stand and razor.)
Bought this for the stand and brush, but ended up liking the razor quite a bit. The brush is right in the middle of soft and firm. It works up a great lather. The base of the stand is surprisingly heavy! It'll easily hold any razor of any weight. It's tall as well, so you can easily put any razor in the stand. The bowl looks great, but it is very thin and light. It'll work though. This would look great as a decorative piece as well! I didn't try the blades it came with. Only Feathers or Astras will get through my thick facial hair. I'm very happy with this purchase!
Buena calidad mi esposo le encanto
Exactly what my husband was looking for! Very sturdy and great quality!
Nicely packaged. Good quality. Holds both razor and brush securely. Would recommend this product.
it does what is supposed to do, plus has a great balance to not easily be dropped.
Please note, this review is for/from double edge safety razor point of view.Now, am I crazy? Is it too much to ask to have an elegantly simple designed razor and brush stand that can be a little more universal and safe? I really really really wanted to love this stand.So here's the deal...PROS: in person this stand is much more elegant in person than in the pics, out of the box I was impressed. This is beautifully made, looks more expensive than it is, may more elegant than every other stand at this price point. Weight is pretty ok, sturdy enough I'm not nervous of it tipping over on it's own.CONS: This is really meant for modern cartridge razors, like Gillette Mach 3. Considering Double Edge Safety Razors are more traditionally paired with shaving brushes, I don't know why you wouldn't design this razor and brush stand with DE's in mind. I just don't. That's poorly thought out design that's limiting who would buy this product. I tried 4 different Double Edge razors, pics are attached, and you can see how precariously they're hanging on. It's not even that they razors can't hang straight, but that a small bump and they can fall onto your hard counter or onto the floor. The razor holderIn CONCLUSION:The brush holder is ok, the omega brush that I have on it has to ��sit on top�� of the arms and fell off way too easily when i tried putting a razor on it. So 2.5 stars for doing HALF the job, half a star for making an affordable stand that looks elegant. If only it performed elegantly. I'm too disappointed to even bother with the return. Maybe tomorrow.Opening of the brush holde is 15mm and the inner diameter is about 17.5mm. Brush opening 28mm, diameter 30mm. But if you have a fancy cartridge razor handle (because why would you buy a stand for a cheap cartridge razor) , then this will be great. (PS, if Miusco is reading this and If in the future they make a mode more suited to double edge razors I hope they make on mimicking the Muhle brush/razor stand that's shorter and holds the razor upside down... but that one only fits Muhle razors - or I'd have bought that one and not bothered ordering this one to begin with) Ok. Rant over. I feel better now.
Mostly worked out great. Does not fit the small brush that comes in the Art of Shaving starter kit.
Fits my shaving brush perfectly, stable (weighted base), looks nice.
Read on 3 stars is I dislike the way a manual razor hang in the stand the handle is tilted inward and a 22mm shave brush bristles touch the shaft. I love the the opening for a shave brush handle but but even a 22mm tilted and my lay on a manual razor head. compared to the other stand I have Its a three, reason for buying, to hand brush from top of handle it fits that but touches the shaft. No tools on stand it does look great. 5.5.18 I found a D.E.Razor that stand straight in the Miusco stand and updating my like to four stars.
Awesome awesome awesome..... just love the finish this razor. Nice and small and fit my Barber Pole Shaving brush and Merkur Long handle 23C razor nicely
A very good product.
Works well and does not take up much space
Beautiful styling. Fits brush and cartridge razors (Dollar Shave Club, Harry's, Schick Hydro) perfectly. Problem is once my DE safety razor arrived (Merkur 34c). It doesn't sit 'in' the holder slot but 'on' the rim without any tension. Slippage accident (cast metal on granite top) waiting to happen. Sadly, it goes back. Damn.
Excellent product. The brush is soft and great quality.
