Decade long search finally over....

After trying hundreds of razors over the last decade, the Cx-316L arrived at my door. After the first use, I looked in the mirror and said to myself “this is impossible.....” The first shave with this razor led to the best shave of my life. Subsequent shaves produced the same result. I couldn’t believe it. The original R1 handle is remarkably well balanced and very comfortable. The titanium handle is the perfect weight and a joy to look at and use. The slim profile of the head is utter perfection.

For the last several months, the Cx-316L has been the only razor I have reached for, and quite frankly, I don’t see this changing. Ever. My search for the exit razor has ended.

Bravo, Sean.

30 Day review

It has been 30 days since I received my razor. I have shaved with it about 15 times and each time I grow to like it more and more. The razor itself is astonishing, it is designed very well. The handle design, I found makes it super easy to shave up the face and the thin design of the head makes it easy to get a close shave under the nose. The packaging when I received the razor was great. I highly recommend this product to anyone that is looking for a great heirloom razor. I will definitely be using this razor for a long time to come.

Had my first shave with this razor today. Truly a work of art, perfectly balanced and exceptionally smooth shaving experience. Sits between R41 and R89 in term of aggressiveness. On top of this, customer service is second to none.


Add this to the growing list of exceptional U.S. made heritage brands that are proving there is a market for outstanding quality in a disposable world. The fit and finish of this razor are as great as the pictures show, but the real headline here is the quality of shave. I actually received this razor as a gift and with it being my first to not have 3-6 blades I was a little skeptical as to how practical it would be, boy was I wrong. I get virtually the exact same quality of cut with this razor as I did with my old expensive cartridges. Overall I’m super happy with this razor and I’m looking forward to what else Carbon has in store.
