The trouble of shopping online at places that are significantly less expensive than I'm used to usually means I pick up some oddities... like today, I just ordered a Yuma and a Racer (Lord) razors from bestshave.net. They were cheap enough to be worth the gamble, just like their horse hair brushes.

While nothing online seems to point to these two razors being bad - despite being cheap - I'm curious to hear if anyone else here have tried them. If so, what are they like?

Worst case scenario I'll PIF them to some other adventurous soul Biggrin

The Yuma is cheap but shaves great, I have them on my site if there is any interest.

The quality was always a turn off when I saw them in the stores around here where there is a middle east population like Paterson N.J. But with so much talk on the boards I tried one then bought a dozen at my wholesaler for the site.

I must admit a certain fear as well as excitement... can something that cheap do a decent job? I guess I find out soon enough Tongue

The Yuma is a very cheap razor but I have heard nothing bu good things regarding its shaving ability. As far as the Racer razor its made by Lord and all their razors are under $15 and excellent for the money. Basically they are all tech type razors that really perform.
Gary at showboxshaving. sells all the Lord razors.

I've had a Yuma for a short time, and like it quite a bit. It is a compact little razor, and is fairly lite. However the balance is quite nice, and it is easy to move around my face.

Here's a photo of mine next to a plastic razor i got at the same time from Bestshave in Turkey.

That Yuma's handle is a dead ringer for the Merkur 1904. Very nice. Let us know how it goes, Hans.
