About Micro Touch One Razor

By HighYa Research Team
Updated on: Jul 6, 2015

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 placed 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 reviews from consumers, which we will discuss below.

How Micro Touch One Razor Works

The makers of Micro Touch One Razor claim that it’s a modern version of a “timeless classic;” i.e. the men’s safety razor. It is pitched by Rick Harrison, bald-and-goateed star of the reality program Pawn Stars. According to the company, 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 a removable, curved shaving head that holds and keeps the blade centered, while 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.

The manufacturer claims that the key to Micro Touch One Razor, and any safety razor, is practice, practice, practice. In fact, Rick Harrison is even 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 Micro Touch One Razor’s “Quick Start” page are quite simple.

All you have to do is hold it by the tip of the handle at a 45-degree angle and shave with the grain of your beard. You should use as little pressure as possible against your face, letting the razor do most of the work.

This has also been confirmed by some sources we’ve spoken to who have used the product.

Micro Touch One Razor Pricing and Returns

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

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

Bottom Line: Does Micro Touch One Razor Work as It Claims?

Based on over 250 customer reviews here on HighYa, Micro Touch One Razor seems to have generated quite a buzz. Currently, it averages a three-star rating, which seems to be due to the fact that there are extremely passionate people on both ends of the spectrum.

First, we’ll highlight 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 that Micro Touch One Razor was a good, well-made product and they were happy with their purchase and the resulting shave.

However, some of them recommend buying 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 also claimed 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 seems to be 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 that reference not only cutting themselves and the product’s low quality, but they also mention feeling like 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 about constant phone calls with solicitors who encouraged and/or automatically signed them up for a $100 gas card with savings vouchers, and then billing them $30 a month for the pleasure.

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 online, 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 Touch One Razor to cleanly shave their full goatee with just one pass of the razor blade:

    Didn't get what I thought I ordered!

    • Missouri,
    • Dec 3, 2013

    I purchased this razor and it took almost 30 days to receive it. After I had sent in my order online I received a call from someone who said they were with the company and that I was going to receive a gift card for around $100 and I told them I didn't want anything. They tried to get me to give them my credit card number to verify that I had purchased the razor. I told them I didn't give my personal info out to anyone and to remove me from any list they had.

    I also received two razors and was charged for both at $32 each. I have my confirmation in hand and I only ordered one so I am going to try to return but will still have to pay the $12 shipping and handling even though I didn't order it. I ordered this as I respected Rick Harrison and felt he wouldn't endorse anything that was a scam so I am disappointed in that. Also the razor is hard to use for me and based on reviews I may need to get used to it before it performs as indicated. To be honest I was very disappointed in my experience and it appears I may have paid $64 just to have a razor. Time will tell. I am returning it and oh yes not sure what that will cost.

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

    Scar Face 2013

    • Long Island NY,
    • Dec 8, 2013
    My wife calls me Scar Face since I received and began shaving with this awful razor. It Takes me twice as long to shave and I never get a smooth shave! I have not yet been able to shave with this awful product without cutting myself once. I will never buy another as seen on TV product again.

    Lousy razor

    • Jun 23, 2015

    Never again. It does not shave well at all. Not even close to a good shave. Do not buy it. I am sending it back today.

    Don't waste your money.

    • South Carolina,
    • Aug 7, 2015

    They must be paying Rick Harrison a bunch of money to use his name on this junk razor. Is he on drugs again and needs the extra money? To bad, I lost my respect for him. The razors like this one made years ago which you can still buy at Walmart or the drugstore are 100% better and cost less.

    Totally sucks.

    • Massachusetts,
    • Aug 7, 2015

    I tried it once on a day old shave and it was awful. I literally threw it right in the trash immediately as I wouldn't even give that crap to anyone else. Total piece of crap an I lost a little respect for Rick Harrison for even standing behind that.

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

    Don't waste your money on this obsolete product!

    • Hattiesburg, MS,
    • Jun 23, 2015

    I've been a fan of the Harrison's and Pawn Stars since their season aired--until 2013 when I learned they unnecessarily open their pawn shop even on Easter Sunday. In our current high-tech world, I could understand this action if they were a hospital, a power company. a police or fire department, etc., but as an active Southern Catholic Christian, this decision tells me that they worship the Almighty Dollar above Almighty God--and explains why "Rich" Harrison would influence his fellow Americans to buy [for Christmas at that] a shaving product that is heavy & cumbersome, slow & relatively dangerous (nicks & cuts), and became inferior 40 years ago. Being in my mid-50's and having been shaving for 44 years (just as these old-style 1-blade razors were being replaced), I'm old enough and experienced enough to have known better, but I decided to trust "Rich" Harrison and give his pitch the benefit of my doubts (for 20 bucks). But never again, and I'm done ever watching "Pawn Stars" again.

    Razor Sucks

    • New Mexico,
    • Aug 8, 2015

    I also, figured if Rick said it was a good razor, why not. I received it and it was the worse shave ever. What a piece of junk. And then the other night someone called me claiming to represent one touch razor and she said that I was going to receive a gift card and a coupon book for around $100. I told them I didn't want her to charge my card any more and I was not interested in her offer. She continued to hassle me and harass me to give her my permission to charge my card. I refused and hung up. I would not recommend this razor at all. I went back to my Gillette Fusion.

    My bad experience

    • New Jersey,
    • Jun 9, 2015

    I order it two weeks ago, got the tracking number and won't be delivered for about two more weeks. They called me and said I was enrolled in something I would have to cancel in order to not be charged further (I never even authorized them to give my credit card info to a third party which they did). If I knew this, I would have ordered the one on eBay for $10 with free shipping from china which is same one with a different name. Stay away and go to eBay.

    Save your money

    • USA,
    • Aug 13, 2015

    Please, do not buy. Rick is bald for a reason, he can't grow hair. I tried the razor once, bad experience. Gave it another shot, even worse, razor burn so bad, cuts all over my face. Usually use a mach 5, thought try something diff after a Christmas gift. Threw them all in the garbage, doesn't give you razor burn but cuts you face.

    Anything before you used is better then this, horrible.

    Very small shaver. Cuts up your face. Also I can't find phone number to contact for return.
