All of our straight razors come in factory shave ready condition. Most all of my shaving videos are performed with the straight razor right out of the box from the factory, the most I may do is strop it prior to shaving with it....
Some of the reasonably priced straight razors that I highly recommend for beginners are as follows: The Boker Edelweiss, the Dovo 5/8 Round Point with Black, Red, or Pearlex Handle, or this Dovo 5/8 Tortoise Straight Razor. These Straight Razors will definitely provide you with many years of quality shaves in the future if cared for reasonably well.
If you are interested in a set that contains a Straight razor, a Paddle Hone/Stone, and a Strop to properly maintain the razor, then check out these Dovo 3-Piece Sets. These sets are designed so that you have everything you need to embark on your quest of mastering the Straight Razor. Just choose the Shaving Cream or Soap of your choice and a Shaving Brush, and you'll be good to go!
Have A Great Shave, Have A Great Day!
