    Default Mastro Livi response

    There have been comments made by members under the STROPS section about the Mastro Livi razors. I just got an email that linked to the Mastro Livi club and to Mastro Livi's web page that negatively reflects on the members who commented about problems with the 2016 club razor and quality concerns. Just so it is stated accurately, there are many more members who have had problems recently with the Livi Razors. My comments about the 2016 club razors are correct. They are ground very fine and the blade is more flexible thus many of us find it shaves harshly. I own 6 Livi Razors so I have grounds to compare it. Second, my comments about 2 custom razors having the blades striking the scales and not closing correctly is factual. One was sent back costing me $70 which Mastro Livi repaired. The second I had to add washers to get it to close correctly. Whether Antonio and Mastro Livi want to admit it, there are quality problems and singling out members to criticize after they paid a lot of money for a custom razor is out of line. My razors should never have been sent out in the first place.

    You go Mastro!! You really schooled those boys!! All while not even drawing a sweat on your brow.
    No response from SRP? That's the jist of it, there are several members here who are seeing the light. That celtic guy is really killing off SRP. Like it was planned or something.

    Only 2 comments and they are not directly related to Mastro Livi razors. I do have some extra hollow Solingen razors that shave smoothly with no harshness. Could it be that a slight change in the honing routine and/or during actual shaving might make the difference? Not having any custom razors I would expect perfection in every aspect of a custom should I ever order one. I do think that is one of the reasons people order custom razors.

    Sorry for everyone involved to hear of the kerfluffle about Mastro Levi razors.

    In observing members commenting on Mastro's razors, as well as other custom makers, I've seen the majority of comments being positive. So if a batch of club razors comes out, and more than one member independently claims he has a problem with the quality control I'd take him at his word. Especially if he was someone like the original poster who has multiple razors from Mastro that he likes. I personally haven't seen one of these club razors but our senior members generally know what they are talking about when it comes to razors.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    I sent to Mastro Livi and Antonio at the Mastro Livi Club my comment that I did not have the blade problems stated by member but have received comments about then. My concern was that the blade was very flexible and the shave harsh. I have 6 Livi Razors and feel I have the ability to compare the shaves. I hone and strop them the same. It's no secret that steels hold an edge and shave differently. If there are quality concerns that are justified, then members should be able to state it as long as they are honest and list the problems accurately. I have 4 Livi razors I absolutely love and will hand down to my grandchildren.

    You know - it may have been a service to everyone if after he posted "close account" 10 times when he first joined SRP, that it was actually closed...

    Your proposal is acceptable. 2 weeks to cool off.

    SRP has been the target of every troll, hate group/forum and self serving wannabe and poser since the original community was founded. So please join the hate crew elsewhere.

    I was the one who introduced Livi razors to the community many years ago. Mastro Livi has always been the highest order of a gentleman. I find it hard to believe the comments we are seeing are coming from the Mastro Livi I know and have met in person. It is amazing to me that when someone voices quality problems on any subject in here or other venues that trolls like this are driven by agenda and the need for recognition. The Livi of old simply handled his customer service without fanfare or the type of agenda the current response delivered.

    Have fun
