Review: RazoRock “Stealth” V3.0 and SOTD: January 8th, 2015

I have been shaving with the RazoRock Stealth now for a bit over a month, and fairly regularly at that ! It became quickly my go-to razor at the end of 2014. The video will go into much further depth than I am here, but quickly.

Material- The Stealth is still in prototype phases and is on it’s 3rd generation of build. The razor itself is made of aluminum but is anodized for blade and rust protection. The head is CNC billet machine made for tight tolerance, while the handle is lathe turned.

Hand feel or ergonomics- For an average size guy such as myself but has larger hands this feels perfect ! Even if your hand were a bit larger or, smaller it would still fit your hand very nicely ! The weight is on the light side at 40 grams, but the razor just seems to glide and assist you not to apply any pressure despite the low weight. Again I find the V3.0 to excel at this compared to the other versions; though that may be in my head.

002

Ease of use- This is a standard 3 piece design slant that was inspired by, but not a replica of a older German Bakelite slant razor. This razor has a slight learning curve due to the head being a bit bulbous. I could not test it under the nose due to my super-awesome handlebar moustache ūüôā¬†, but I would guess to a slightly increased angle that it would shave just fine.

Aggressiveness- I find this slant to be a contradiction. A slant by nature uses a slicing action. This one does as well ! But it is mild enough to be used as a daily shaver, and still get a BBS shave. I would not recommend a slant aside from this ever for a daily shaver as it would cause irritation and possibly be way too harsh for most peoples needs.

003

Overall- In a few words, this¬†is a prototype so¬†it is not readily available. If you are on the Italianbarber.com website an see¬†it listed as¬†available I have zero reservations saying go for it ! This is an amazing shaver, a bit mild for a slant, but delivers a shave that is comfortable, and if used properly a level of safety that most razors don’t offer while allowing a BBS shave with ease.¬† Finally a daily slant bar razor; ¬†thank you RazoRock ! – Aaron

    1. yes I have and the Ikon while nice….. does not hold a chance to even a prototype Stealth. Of course YMMV and I will say Ikon makes nice yet IMHO pricey for what it is unless your getting the older 316L stainless models razor. I own 3 Ikons so I must like them, but again I put them at #3 in my Stainless world. Above the Tie being #1 by a long shot, Pils and then the 316L NOT SHAVECRAFT Ikon. Thanks for reading and if you can get a hold of a Stealth from RazorRock you will get a better shave.
