Razorock Mamba.

#1
A new offering from Razorock.. "the Mamba".

316L Stainless steel
36g/3.4oz
90mm handle.

As for the shave ..very smooth and pleasant . Mild, yet efficient and feels like (for me at least) you could throw it around your face without getting cut.
Totally agree with James @Acer89 in his view that it is very similar to a Wolfman Guerrilla. Even the tabs on the cap and blade loading are identical.
The fit and finish of this razor (identical to the Wunderbar slant) are outstanding for the price point.
Would make a great razor for a beginner and last forever.

A great daily shaver IMHO...

Questions and comment folks feel free as this is not an super in depth review ..


Have a great weekend !

Used the new RR Mamba today to mixed reviews.

Five things I really like:

I can't think of any other North American made steel DE razor that sells for under $50.00.

Things I'm still mulling over:

With the stock handle the balance felt off and I couldn't get the bottom part of the handle to unscrew.
The shave is really really mild but it also seems to have a really really narrow effective shave window.

Things I learned:

Switching to the RR Halo Titanium handle made the balance near perfect and length perfect.
When you get the angle outside the effective window it just doesn't cut as well but never bit me.
Other razors from RR like the Old Type are really more efficient and as comfortable.
It takes a full three pass shave with post alum touchup to get the a PDG+ shave.

Before returning to the world of Open Comb razors I gave the new RR Mamba one more outing. This time I began just like I was using a Single Edge or the Durham Duplex and put the cap on my face, handle almost perpendicular to the surface of my face and simply kept that orientation. Almost no pressure and shave with my full arm.

The result was a two pass and touchup PDG+ near perfect shave, effortless and comfortable. Alum felt cold and still tastes bad but zero signs of irritation and there was almost no post alum skin stretching places left I could play with...but I kept looking.


The soap for today is the Orange Blossom & Jasmine from Above the Tie and continuing the floral theme a citrus, rose and patchouli aftershave from Chatillon Lux. The brush is a RazoRock 400 Finest Badger.

The RazoRock Mamba will not be something that the Feel The Steel folk will enjoy but it is certainly a very efficient, very comfortable tool when married to the right handle for you.

A friend loaned me his to try and I thought I'd add my 2 cents worth.

It is beautifully made and a beast for weight IMO. I do not like the way one has to load the blade. Huge pain in the keister and moreso removing the blade. That said, it is a super smooth shaver, albeit not as nimble as a Tech. I will try a Tech handle on it soon to lighten this "anvil". I did however get a DFS using a new Silver Blue blade.
