Granted, I'm not an expert on shaving techniques. But man this is a nice safety razor. I've been using a cheap model for years, and I had no idea that the construction of the razor would have such a drastic effect on the shave. But this Jagger model gave me the smoothest shave ever. I'm delighted. Definitely recommend buying it.
A 'must have' in any shaving tool box
For consistency, it's all about precision. This razor hold the blade as close to perfectly as you can get. I put it under a microscope and the distance from edge to safety bar was completely uniform. The reason for four stars is because the handle can get very slippery. I put it in the chuck of my drill press and filed grooves into the handle. No more slip and now a perfect shave.
Initially felt buyer's remorse but after using it a few times, I'm really starting to love how close my shaves are.
This razor is amazing, wish it was a bit cheaper but it comes with the blades so figured I would go for it. I recommend this to anyone who wants an elegant and effective tool in the bathroom
