Peter H (Mar 2021)

Mike F (Nov 2020)
"Just a brief thank you for the swift processing of my Carpe Diem razor purchase. Ordered Sunday evening, arrived Tuesday morning. Really great service."
John R (Sep 2020)
"Thank you so much for your patience and time explaining things yesterday. I am a delighted customer and am more than likely to be spending more money with you in the future!"
James H (Sep 2020)
"Just thought I'd let you know my Ralf Aust razor arrived. It's a beautiful piece of craftsmanship and a pleasure to use.
Thank you for the swift posting and I will definately use your company again."
Graeme M (Sep 2020)
"I just want to say that I’ve received the razor and used it and, without exaggerating, it’s now unbelievable. Can’t thank you enough, and to think I’d be scraping away and wondering why it wasn’t efficient straight from the retailers."
Liam C (August 2020)
"Just received the Aust, thank you very much for your very expedient service. Although I prefer 1/4 grinds and wedges (I am a masochist when it comes to honing), the Aust is hefty enough with it’s hollow grind. All things considered, I really like the Aust, and consider Mr. Aust a very talented artisan in the traditional craft of straight razors. Now if only he would make an 8/8 !. The Invisible Edge has also made my favorite of online stores. Again I thank you, and wish you the very best."
Marc C (August 2020)
"Just shaved with the newly-honed razor. Amazingly smooth- absolutely delightful experience. Thanks very much."
Andrew S (August 2020)
"The razor arrived safely today, it looks wonderful "in the flesh" and I cannot wait to try it out, maybe next week.I will let you know how I get on. Thanks for a great service."
Tony B (July 2020)
" I just wanted to say thank you so much - arrived quickly, what a beautiful piece. I've been on the "zero-waste" hair removal thing for a long time, I'd pretty much given up a decade ago after a hateful 18 months with a safety razor and subsequent forms of waxing/lazering/epilation etc. Wishing now I'd bought a straight razor years ago - bet you hear that all the time! First ever shave was a dream last night, legs have never felt so smooth, and no blood - when does that ever happen? Not sure if you get many female customers - I'm very happy."
Liz M (July 2020)
"I have just received the parcel, this razor is like a piece of art... Thank you so much !"
Gagik M (July 2020)
"Hi Adam,That was quick, they arrived yesterday morning! You’ve done a brilliant job, thank you. They look great and I can’t wait to try them out"
Ian R (June 2020)
"I just wanted to say that the Puma shaves perfectly, great job on getting a new edge on it! I am extremely happy with the results and that this 60 year old razor is now back in action, after who knows how long. Top job!"
Daniel B (June 2020)
"I have just received the parcel, this razor is like a piece of art... Thank you so much !"
Gagik M (June 2020)
"Thanks very much for the Ace service, received my order in a couple of days, excellent packaging. My order of Saponificio Varesino Cosmo special Edition shaving soap is a delight, lovely scent that conjures memories of Mediterranean holidays and the lather is like silk to the skin. Resulting shave was a joy along with a feeling smooth and moist skin. Shall definitely explore this range.
Thanks again, Ciao!"
Simon C-H (June 2020)
"Received package thanks. Never used a straight razor before. Just had a go and perfect. No cuts and I used both hands as the experienced boys do. Maybe beginers luck mind, however I did take my time as i was really nervous. I think im converted now."
Dan H (May 2020)
"All was received and very pleased with the products and service - I definitely look forward to using your services again in the future."
Ian H (Apr 2020)
"Would just like to say thank you for this new razor [IE030205] it’s absolutely beautiful and after a short test it’s pinging hair away like its nothing. I’m actually pleased the previous razor was out of stock, and have just ordered a pouch to go with. Thank you again."
David R (Apr 2020)
"Just a quick note to say thank you. I received my new Ralf Aust horn scaled razor this morning. It's beautiful, clearly very good quality - I'm very happy, thank you."
Karl W (Apr 2020)
"The Razor arrived safely today today. Firstly let me say that is a beautiful machete of a razor and you have honed the blade perfectly. I have now had a shave with it, and a) I didn't cut my head off (no mean feat as I haven't used a hollowground in years) and b) first off that was one of the closest and most comfortable shaves I have ever had. No doubt once I have got used to the size and weight of the blade it will get even better!"
Reuben T (Apr 2020)
"I have received the razor and wow what a difference! I can safely say it was never as sharp as that at anytime before. I’m getting a shave a close as my DE razor so really impressed with the job you did on the blade."
Tim M (Feb 2020)
Late last year my wife asked if you could recondition the cutthroat razor my Dad used throughout my childhood. It had been lying unused in a drawer for 30 years and had clearly seen better days. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your commitment, craftsmanship and dedication to restoring a razor that I suspect is of more sentimental value than monetary. Thank you so much for bringing my Dad's razor back into the land of the living after three decades of neglect. Now, all I have to do is master the technique of using it to shave without doing a passable impression of Sweeney Todd.
Jed D (Jan 2020)
"Received my blades back today. Just completed a shave. Was the best shave I've had since I started using a straight razor, approx 4 years ago. A great service, thank you!"
Trevor S (Jan 2020)
"Just a quick line to let you know that I have received both of my razors back today and I am really happy with the work you have done. Will certainly be using your service again. Also appreciate how you have kept me up to date with the progress. Thank you."
Johan V (Jan 2020)
"Just a quick email to say my order of Cutthroat Starter Kit (Modern Kent version) arrived today, and to say thanks very much for your efficient help with ordering when I couldn't do it online. Great service, thanks very much!"
Nicki H (Dec 2019)
"Adam, I’ve been a bit busy to say thank you, but I need to. The Thiers-Issard is gorgeous and I can’t wait to use it. For over a year I visited The Invisible Edge looking for a thumb notched TI with a Fleur-de-Lys spine. You seemed the most likely to get one due to your nice offering of razors. I finally asked if you ever get one and you ordered one for me. It’s a beautiful razor and I cannot wait to use it. Thank you for putting up with my back and forth communication to get it right."
Scott C (Dec 2019)
"Hi Adam .... I got the razors back in Saturday. They shave great! Thanks for the prompt and friendly service."
Aaron H (Nov 2019)
"Adam I have just had my first shave with the Ralf Aust and I can safely say it was the nicest and smoothest shave that I have had. Well pleased with the purchase."
Peter H (Nov 2019)
"It’s Arran here again wanting to firstly say a huge thank you for my recent purchase it’s been a revelation and am glad to say my technique is improving each shave and very much enjoying the straight razor experience! Even so much so that I’m already wanting to add to my razor collection"
Arran D (Nov 2019)
"Thanks for the really quick turnaround & great work on my Dovo. I was happy to pay more for that kind of service, but I’ll happily recommend you guys (looks like you’re more than well known anyway) & I’ll be a returning customer next time."
Paul M (Oct 2019)
"Hi I would just like to say I’m extremely happy with my new razors especially the boker what a beautiful piece. The quality is outstanding and the service I've had from you has been exceptional I've only had a handful of open shaves so far but thoroughly enjoying every part of the new shaving even the little nicks I’m getting but a little more practice and I’ll get there. All your products that I’ve tried so far have also been very good so I will use no other company for shaving products other than the invisible edge."
David M (August 2019)
"I am writing this to express my 100% satisfaction with your products,and information from your website. So happy to be one of your customers. Thank you."
Gary M (August 2019)
"Just a quick note to say many thanks for the terrific job you did with that wedge. It went through my stubble like a knife through butter. Superb shave!"
Adrian B (August 2019)
"Just to let you know that the razor arrived today and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. First shave done and I'm very happy with the size/weight/finish of the razor. Many thanks for your advice/information the other day and I look forward to doing business with you in the future."
David S (August 2019)
"Just wanted to say thank you for the advice you have been able to provide on straight razors, honing and stropping. I recevied your honing stones this morning and following your advice I've been able to restore the edge of my Boker King Cutter and once again enjoy a pleasant shave with no pulling/tugging. I did purchase a Dovo Astrale from you 5-6 months ago, this is still wonderfully sharp, no need to re-hone this baby yet. I so use the two straights alternately so it is a true credit to your professionalism and workmanship. Just wanted to let you know my appreciation for your advice and work, and once again thank you for inspiring the confidence in myself to give it a go."
Andy D (August 2019)
"Hi Adam received the Ralf Aust and just wanted say what a razor and what a shave" [Ralf Aust 6/8 Horn, French Point IE280002]
Gary H (July 2019)
"I have just shaved with my beautiful Dovo Natural Razor and what a lovely experience, ready to go, super sharp and the shave I have been looking for for so long. Delivery was exactly as stated. Your advice was spot on. So nice to deal with a great company like yours."
David H (July 2019)
"I ordered the Dovo Bismark (and other bits) from you on Friday afternoon. Just a quick message to say a big thanks for your advice (and patience). Everything turned up this morning and just tried my new Bismark this evening. Just amazing. It felt so much easier to use than the shavette I've been using and has to be the closest shave I've ever had. It must be beginers luck as I have got away without nicking myself too. I'm definitely a convert now."
Ian P (June 2019)
"Hey Adam. Got the Dovo. Simply a beaut. Many many thanks for sending it out to me today" [Dovo Stainless Steel Buffalo Horn IE010041]
Alan C (June 2019)

Tom S (May 2019)
"Just wanted to say thanks for an incredible blade! Had the smoothest shave in a very long time"
Michael B (Mar 2019)
"Absolutely excellent service from start to finish. Always answered queries clearly and concisely and gave sound advice. I was steered away from potentially spending more than I had to, given my relative beginner status. Will definitely shop here again! Cheers, Adam"
Tom G (Jan 2019)
"I really appreciate the care you've shown in this. It's probably fair to say that this is the best customer service I've ever received when buying something online before. I really appreciate it."

Laurent C (Nov 2018)
"I just wanted to say thank you for your help, honesty and your graciousness! I will be recommending your services and skills and plan to use you in the near future."
Martin H (Nov 2018)
"Thanks for everything you've done for me. I was in receipt today and must say your work is absolutely outstanding. ...... Suffice to say I'm very pleased with your work. As you've probably gathered, the razor is more of a family heirloom rather than something I would use as a regular shaver. That said, I certainly intend to use it now and then."
Simon J (Oct 2018)
"I just want to say thank you for for such a lovely razor, I have been using straights since 2015 but that is by far the nicest shaver I have used thus far. I cannot determine if it is just your expert honing or the steel (or a combination) but I don't think I have experiences such a smooth and close shave from a straight yet."
Tom S (Oct 2018)
"I would like to thank you for all your help and advice about picking a straight razor. I have taken my first shave and I am extremely pleased with the results. Super sharp. Fantastic service."
Ian Y (Oct 2018)
"Many thanks for the service over the past few months. I have ordered numerous items from the website and I am delighted with them; the craftsmanship is exquisite.

Hugo H (Oct 2018)

Liu Y (Aug 2018)
"I received my first order from your company today (thank you). The straight razor is fantastic! I chose the Dovo in the end (just means I'll have to come back for the TI)"
Jason D (Aug 2018)
"Just got around to trying this razor after getting it from you last week - holy cow, the edge on this thing is nuts. I thought I was getting good at putting my own edges on razors but this was was in another league compared to anything I've had from anyone else or my own honing."
Andy S (July 2018)
"Both my brother and I cannot speak highly enough about your advice and customer service that you have given us, with the hoice of products you have on the website, and the prompt delivery service that you offer, I would recommend you in an instant to anyone thinking of straight edge shaving."

Jay R (Jan 2018)

“I just want to thank you for your support in every step of my purchase. I liked my strop and whetstone but the straight razor, I can't describe it with any word. I am using a different brand and this is my first Thiers and it is like the Nirvana of the straight razors. From now on I have a 7/8 war axe :)”
Devrim A (August 2017)
“Just a quick note to say - I've received the razors today, safe and sound. Thank you. I love them! I think they both look stunning (TI Spartacus 5/8 Flower back Ebony and TI 5/8 Evide Sonnant White Micarta). I'll be sure to look after and enjoy them for the rest of my life.”
Karl W (August 2017)
“Many thanks for honing and re-pinning my Puma razor. I'm delighted with how smooth and sharp it is, it's probably the best shave I've ever had. I have sensitive skin and not a single nick or bit of irritation.”
Alex K (May 2017)
“It arrived perfectly, really pleased with the job you did - thank you! I will no doubt be sending you the razor (or others) as I need them tended to!”

I am new to straight razor shaving and greatly appreciated the help and advice received from Adam, he was very professional and took time to explain and advise me on the correct purchase for me at this time. Would thoroughly recommend this company to anyone looking for straight, honest advice, so rare to see these days. Also the speed of delivery, it was well packaged and arrived a day early. Thanks again, will be back."
Richard W (Dec 2016)
"I received my order yesterday. I just wanted to say a huge thank you. I have had poor experiences with online retailers in the past where they send goods poorly packaged. It is clear that a lot of care and time went into packaging my parcel from you. You are running an exemplary operation. You've made my weekend, I hope yours is great, too. Thank you so much, a customer for life."
Edward R (Nov 2016)

"I ordered the TI ironwood 6/8 straight razor for my husband’s birthday. It was a huge hit and he absolutely loves it. It's so much more beautiful in person. Thank you so much!"
Kara T (March 2016)
"Without my knowledge my wife purchased a Thiers Issard desert ironwood scales for me, and I must say what a fantastic blade it is. I have had the opportunity to use it a few times it beats my old straight razor hands down which I recently had honed by you which was a very good shave on return but I must say on receiving my new straight razor I am blown away by the result. God bless my wife and thank you for the supply of such a fine piece of engineering. I would not deal with anyone other than the Invisible Edge."
