Broman Mark II

The Broman Mark II razor, designed and engineered in the United Kingdom, represents the brand’s commitment to innovation and environmentally-friendly grooming. Built with a precision die-cast zinc alloy handle and head, finished with a durable polished chrome coating, it promises a refined shaving experience. The new model boasts a pressure-sensitive pivoting head, a feature tailored for an easy and effective shave, alongside an anti-clogging design. Notably, it accommodates all half double edge razor blades and introduces an improved CNC stainless steel head flap for enhanced under-nose shaving. The incorporation of neodymium magnets facilitates quick and easy blade changes.

While the Broman Mark II aims to offer a milder shave with its unique soft pivot design, user feedback indicates a potential discrepancy in performance relating to blade exposure. Though the razor is visually appealing, echoing high-end counterparts, a reported critical flaw in blade functionality raises concerns over its ability to perform its fundamental task. Additionally, some users find the grip somewhat awkward, and the weight heavier than anticipated, which may impact the overall shaving comfort and experience.

Key Facts

Overall Rating

This razor's performance was deeply disappointing, primarily due to a critical flaw in blade exposure that rendered it ineffective for shaving. While the construction and aesthetics might be satisfactory, the most crucial aspect of functionality failed dramatically.

View Overview »

Aesthetics

4

Aesthetically, the razor appears to be designed with intention, mimicking high-end models like 'the high proof'. However, aesthetics without function offer little more than visual appeal. - From the South Carolina's Barber video

Aggressiveness

1

The razor seemed to have a mild aggressiveness, but due to the issue with blade exposure, it was unable to cut hair effectively. This is a significant flaw, making it impossible to properly assess its aggressiveness. - From the South Carolina's Barber video

Construction

3

The reviewer mentions the head attachment issue with a previous model and notes that this seems to be solved, which speaks to an improvement in construction. However, the overall construction is overshadowed by the critical functional flaw. - From the South Carolina's Barber video

Handle Grip

3

The grip was described as 'a little weird' and not as natural compared to other razors like 'the Mars' or 'the Henson'. This indicates that the handle design may not be conducive to a comfortable and intuitive shaving experience. - From the South Carolina's Barber video

Weight

5

The weight was described as more than expected, suggesting a heft that could be perceived as quality — but without proper function, weight alone cannot provide a positive shaving experience. - From the South Carolina's Barber video
