As someone who has never straight edged before, is this a good start?

I guess this isn't exactly what you are asking, but just in case...

My friend who is into different types of shaving doesn't recommend straight edge shaving. He encouraged me to try safety razors. I really like them over electric razors and all the other cartridge razors.

That being said, I am sure with time, straight edge shaving wouldn't be too bad, but he basically just said that safety razors are easier to pickup and learn.

Side note: Looking at the reviews of the blade alone, they look decent, and that is a blade brand I am aware of.

I think I need to go the safety razor way after looking into it more. Thanks for the advice!

It will take a lot of practice before you can use this well (without hurting yourself...). My grandpa used to have one but moved on to safety razors when he got older any his hand wasn't as steady

Shavettes/Disposable straights are not normally recommended for entry level wet shavers. They are unforgiving compared to actual straight razors that are properly honed. I agree with the previous poster that if you want to get into wet shaving, try safety razors first. If this is your first foray into wetshaving, you probably shouldn't purchase this. If you do decide to use a shavette - here's a comparable one https://www.amazon.com/Equinox-Professional-Barber-Straight-Hi-Chromium/dp/B00MKQEJH2/ref=sr_1_5?ie=... [amazon.com] that uses full Double-edged blades, so you don't have to split your own or purchase pre-split ones

I would think so. I've used derby's for about three years, still on my original box from a similar low end/budget kit - very similar to https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IUFA...3zbVM1CJ86 which just holds the blade in place differently from the one posted. The blades are great.

As I'm sure you know, you can get very elaborate with straight razors. Budget kits aren't flashy but they're so inexpensive and work so reliably with zero drama, that while I'd love a fancy high end razor, they just aren't compelling enough, for me.

Soaps and brushes are personal preferences, but being consistent with how you lather and apply makes as much or more difference vs what products you use.

Using a kit like this, I don't understand why there's so much buzz around Dollar Shave Club, etc!

*After reading comments from people probably more experienced than I... I wouldn't dispute what was said above. But it is possible to learn on a shavette, like I did. I'd trust the others in that it's not ideal, but weigh that against how quickly you want a great shave, whether you'll stick with it after a few nicks or get annoyed, etc. Going out on a limb, I'll say it's like learning to drive on a manual rather than an automatic - not the best for someone who's never driven before, but it doesn't doom you to a life of upset or giving up on getting a license.
