Do appreciate the longer handle and general heft of this safety razor. A nice and useful blast from the past. What I have found is that on a hard noggin, the razor edge does not provide the flex that I experience with other safety razors. Therefore, I will use it only to shave my face. That experience was great!
This was my very first DE razor that I purchased about 8 years ago. It came recommended as a good starter razor. I have sensitive skin and this razor for me was a bit on the aggressive side at first. I find it's also important to pair a good blade with it. I personally didn't like the Merkur blades that I purchased with the razor. Once I added a Feather blade, used some good quality shave oil and improved my technique...bingo! All is good! This is a very good razor and one that you won't be disappointed that you purchased. It's held up really well as well. I even dropped it once (my fault, the grip is good) and it fell on the very bottom of the handle with a little dent, but it did not break. This razor holds a special place in my small collection as my first DE razor. I hope you enjoy it like I do!
This is my every day shaver and you can beat the performance of this razor. Not too aggressive, not too light. Nice heavy feel as the razor does the work with no pressure needed. Pair this up with a nice blade of your choice and you'll have a great shave every day. Good buy and worth the price. Should last a lifetime if you take care of it. Shave on!
First time purchasing a safety razor. Does a great job and I enjoy much more than multi-blade razors.
Wonderful service and products!
