I like this razor. I consider myself an experienced shaver. I shave my head with razor. I don’t have to worry about ingrown hairs or razor bumps.
I've been using a 5 blade razor my entire life but the replacement blades are out of hand. I made the switch to this razor about 2 months ago and got the Merkur blades with it. It took about a week to get used to the new razor but I'm glad I made the switch. It's a smooth shave and the blades are much cheaper.
Merkur razors are built sturdy. I have a few double-edge razors and picked this one up to add to my collection. It has good weight and the blade stays in place really well. Merkur's best razor
