The first DE razor is believed to have been invented in the late 18th century by a Frenchman named Jean-Jacques Perret, and a similar model was also made in Sheffield, England in the 1820s. In 1901, US inventors King Camp Gillette and William Nickerson invented a razor with disposable blades. Gillette’s brand proved remarkably popular, with sales reaching 90,000 DE razors and 123,000 blades by 1904.
In 1965 Wilkinson Sword sneaked ahead of Gillette in the market by switching from easily-rusting carbon steel blades to stainless steel, allowing for much longer blade life. Gillette then had to follow suit by bring out it's best DE razor during this period. These razors began to be phased out in the early 1970s with the introduction of replaceable blade cartridges. Gillette then brought out its first double edged blade in cartridge form. Meanwhile, Bic entered the market in 1974 with a fully disposable model.
At the turn of the millennium, Gillette introduced the triple blade cartridge, sparking the blade wars to bring out the shaver with the most blades: hence the Schick Quattro and now the five-blade Gillette Fusion. With the blade wars getting out of hand Goodfella is turning back the clock, in our opinion you only need one blade to deliver a great shave.
We created the Goodfella razor back in 2007 and thousands of guys across the globe agree with us. What are you waiting for?

Just getting started with it, really, but it's amazing! Coming from a Gilette Sensor Excel II (cartridge) system which I've used for 20 years... I am LOVING my Goodfella! Closest shave ever and I feel like I won't need to buy blades for a couple years (got a hundred of them)!

I switched to a DE razor about 1 month ago, I previously shaved with a Gilette Proglide razor and pleased with the result, not as pleased with the hefty price tag. I initially choose a Muhle R89 because many people said it was an ideal entry level model that was very mild. However, the result I had with this razor was worse than the cartridge razor with nicks and cuts in the neck area. I was about to give up on DE razors but I decided to give your razor a try.
My first shave with the goodfella proved to be a very positive one with no nicks or cuts and the same shaving result as with a Gilette Proglide cartridge razor. I even have the impression that what they say about DE razors is actually true: little to no razorburn. The Muhle resulted in even more razorburn than my cartridge razor.

Just received my Goodfella Chrome and blades.
First impressions made me change to a heavier handle. Handle is, for me way to small. Used an Ikon Bulldog to get some weight and grip.
Head is super lightweight, which on first viewing I didn't like that much however first shave was awesome.
Using a Feather, my blade of choice, I first thought this is a very aggressive razor, however the "feedback" from the light head and baseplates is awesome. Open comb positioned perfectly to the blade does the job perfectly. All in all a very close shave and the very obvious audible notes during all passes will give a VERY smooth BBS. Very happy punter, thanks Guys.

Recently bought a goodfella razor and I love it. So much better than overpriced crappy razors they sell at the supermarket. Would never go back to them now.

The razor is well made, simple and nice. the blades dull very quickly and aren't the sharpest I have used, but they are a good price.

I wanted to take a moment to let you know my feelings about the Goodfella: what a spectacular instrument. Not only did my first shave go well, they just keep getting better! Let me say that I find your Goodfella flawless in almost every respect. Most importantly, I find the weight and balance ideal. It tracks very well across the skin, much better than my Merkur ever did. The open-comb design may help in this regard. I do find the blade replacement a bit awkward however, still fearful that I will lose my grip on the head with injurious results. However, I would not change the design in the least. Having a bottom knob to unscrew would surely add unnecessary weight and throw the entire balance off. Best to change the blade with dry hands and a sure grip on the (non-cutting) SIDES of the head. In short, I could not feel more pleased to shave with this razor. I admire the fine craftsmanship, both striking and subtle aesthetic, and most importantly its shaving performance. I consider it a most excellent value. Keep up the fine work!
