About Micro Touch One Razor

Micro Touch One Razor is a razor-and-blade system that harkens back to the days of Yore, when men were men and shavers weren’t disposable. The Micro Touch Max is what is called a “safety razor,” which uses an old-school double-sided razor blade inside a weighted shaver, and promises to give you the best shave of your life.

But is Micro Touch One safety razor really safe? We’ve received a lot of consumer reviews from users on this product, which we will discuss below.

How Micro Touch One Razor Works

The makers of Micro Touch One Razor say it is a modern version of a “timeless classic” – the men’s safety razor. It is pitched by Rick Harrison bald-and-goateed star of the reality program Pawn Stars. They tout that it’s the “best way to shave for over 100 years” and that barbershops still use only one blade (although they use a straight razor or “throat cutter” blade).

The Micro Touch Razor and safety razors in general consist of a weighted base and removable, curved, shaving head that holds and keeps the blade centered, resting against a safety bar. This exposes the tiny straight edge to your skin/face. The Micro Touch Razor is said to be made from solid brass that is chrome-plated.

They state the key to Micro Touch One Razor, and any safety razor, is practice, practice, practice. Rick Harrison is quoted on the website saying: "Like anything new, it may take you a few shaves to get used to…”

How To Use Micro Touch One Razor

The instructions listed on the “Quick Start” page are quite simple. They tell you use as little pressure as possible against your face, letting the razor do the work for you. Hold it by the tip of the handle at a 45-degree angle and shave with the grain of your beard. This has been confirmed by some sources we’ve spoken to who have tried the actual product.

Micro Touch One Razor Pricing and Returns

Micro Touch One Razor sells for $19.99 plus $7.99 shipping plus $4.99 more in fees for the “bonus” razor blades, a total of $32.97 for 24 blades, safety razor, and carrying case.

Micro Touch One Razor has a 30-day money-back guarantee, minus any fees, plus return shipping.

Bottom Line: Is Micro Touch One Razor a Scam?

Based upon our 145 reviews-and-counting, Micro Touch One Razor seems to have generated quite the buzz. Currently, it averages a three-star rating. This seems to be because there are extremely passionate people on both ends of the spectrum.

First, we’ll give you highlights of some of its BEST reviews:

“Perfect solution for me… GREAT!!! If you know how… I certainly recommend it… great razor and easy to clean… Best Shave Ever… give it a chance… didn’t cut myself once…”

These people generally felt it’s a good, well-made product and they are happy with the purchase and resulting shave. However, some of them recommend buying some better razor blades and using special shaving cream (Cremo is a brand that is mentioned) because it doesn’t work so well with the regular kind. Some reviewers have said they bought the product at their local CVS or online at eBay for a better price.

The main takeaway from these positive reviews is that, with a little patience and practice, Micro Touch One Razor is a good shaver, especially for the price.

On the other hand, here are some snippets from some of the WORST:

“What a scam… getting soliciting phone calls… took 30 days to receive it… wife calls me Scar Face… scam… Made in China… almost injured myself… billed $30 per month… sells your phone number and address… charged $68 and I did not purchase $68 of merchandise…”

These people have a mixture of complaints, talking not only about cutting themselves and a cheap product, but also mention feeling a victim of deceptive marketing and upsell tactics by the company. According to these people, the product takes a long time to be delivered (if at all) and they are excessively billed. In addition, many talk of constant phone calls with solicitors encouraging and/or automatically signing them up for a $100 gas card with savings vouchers and then billing them $30 a month.

Here is our assessment of Micro Touch One Razor:

  • The product itself seems to generally work so long as you use it correctly.
  • It may not be best for elderly people with wrinkled skin.
  • If you do want to purchase this, it is available at Walgreens, CVS, and other retail outlets at a discounted price.
  • Do NOT buy from the website as you will be barraged with spam.
  • Buy some stainless steel double-edged razor blades elsewhere.
  • Buy special shaving cream (one brand is Cremo).

Here is a home-made video a consumer posted of himself using a Micro Tocuh One Razor to cleanly shave off their full goatee with just one pass of the razor blade:

  • Enjoying the shave time once again!

    • by Tom Lynch,
    • New Hampshire,
    • Mar 22, 2015

    I saw the commercials for the MicroTouch One. I was immediately intrigued. I knew there had to be something better than the multi-blade, overpriced crap they sell today. So I took the bait and called. I to it in about 2 weeks. Extra blades were an option that you actually cannot opt out of. Well, what is a few extra bucks for a good shave? When I got the package in early December of 2014, I was excited to try it. The first time was a slow and deliberate long stroke across the face. I was done in eight swipes or so. It could have been a closer shave but heck, I was nervous.

    A week into using it, I was watching a WWII documentary and saw a G.I. shaving with an original version of the MicroTouch One. He was using short quick swipes. I adopted that way of shaving and four months into it am getting the perfect and most enjoyable shave of my life. BUY IT! It takes practice so don't be a cry baby about nicks and cuts. You will get better at it too.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Micro one is a Mega Zero.

    • by David B.,
    • Mobile, AL,
    • Mar 3, 2015

    Don't waste your money on this razor. After using it for a couple months, I could barely get it to open and now it wont open at all. Also, I had the same problem with customer service as others have mentioned. I think I'll try the dollar shave club.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • Great Shaver

    I purchased the shaving kit at my local Walmart. I got tired of overpaying for razors so I decided to try this out. At first, I was uncomfortable using it and cut up my face a bit. Although now that I am comfortable using this I get a great shave all the time. I highly recommend it.

    Not worth the purchase price!

    • by Roger Tracey,
    • Yuma, AZ,
    • Feb 24, 2015

    I ordered one off the Internet and it gave me a nice close shave. After about five weeks I attempted to change the blade again and the mechanism wouldn't work. The blade covers wouldn't open and the rod broke. I saw one later in a grocery store which I purchased and the same thing happened. Now I have two years worth of blades and no razor.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Went back to the Fusion

    I tried their DE razor and blades for 4 months. A day didn't go by that I didn't nick myself while shaving. I followed all the videos posted to the internet. Blades only lasted 3 or 4 shaves. Went back to the Fusion. Great shave. No nicks. Blades last a month. I would gladly pay a little extra for a better shaving experience.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Good Razor, bad blades, horrible customer service...

    • by Stephen,
    • Austin, TX,
    • Feb 20, 2015

    If you don't like a safety razor, this is not for you... I like safety razors and cannot stand the multi-blade disposables. I ordered this razor to use as part of my travel kit. I use a Merkur at home. The blades are terrible. They are Chinese made, rather dull and do not last. I normally use Wilkinson Sword from Germany. The razor itself has a nice balance and seems to be well made. The "travel case" it comes in was the first thing to go in the trash, followed by the blades they send with it. The Company's customer service is non-existent, consequently they are a pain to deal with. Long story finished, I like the razor, but will never buy anything from Idea-Village again.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Great Product

    • by Steve,
    • Iowa,
    • Feb 11, 2015

    I needed to change my shaving device due to the unaffordable price of the multiple blade razor heads I've used since the 1970s. I got an excellent shave the first time I used it, despite having forgotten how to use the gadget in 45 years. To my amazement I continued to get excellent results with the same blade, shaving daily for an entire month. Completely satisfied beyond my expectations.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Total rip off

    • by Roger Wagner,
    • Olympia, Wa,
    • Feb 9, 2015

    What can you expect from a guy that runs a pawn shop. It took forever to receive my order and like others have already said here, I also didn't even get a chance to hit the order button and they charged my credit card $52.00.

    I'm trying to talk to the customer service department. They are more worthless than a door knob.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Get one and use it!

    • by Bill H,
    • Louisiana,
    • Feb 5, 2015

    First, learn how to use it. The blades that came with it were okay, they just didn't work for me. Wilkinson Sword from Walgreens work excellent for me. I now enjoy shaving. You can get the best shave ever at home and it literally costs pennies. Get a mug and shave soap. Shaving cream can't touch shave soap lather. Do this, there is nothing like it.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Best Shave of My Life!

    • by Kentucky Matt,
    • Nashville, TN,
    • Jan 31, 2015

    Bought this at Target and it is hands-down the best razor I have ever used in my life. I am a dry shaver and regular disposable razors always clog on me after 1 pass, causing my shaving to take forever because I have to clear the blade(s), sometimes taking multiple razors to get through a shave. With this razor, no clogging, closest shave I've ever had. No nicks. And easy cleaning when done. I actually look forward to shaving with this razor every morning!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    I have tried all the rest now I have found the best

    • by Michael Hannigan,
    • Charleston West Virginia,
    • Jan 23, 2015

    I am 51 years old and I have tried everything. I used electric razors to begin with, they were no good. I tried all kinds of regular razors, about 20 some different kind. I, even tried them multi-blade razors that took a battery, still no good, just a waste of money. They all nicked me on the throat.

    Now we come to your safety razor. I had all ways wanted to use a safety razor. I knew a few people who used them, and they praised them, but I was scared of them. But when Rick Harrison backed it up, I had to try one, and guess what, not only did I get the closest shave, I did not nick my throat! I used to hate shaving, you made it fun for me.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
