Gives a very close shave with no nicking or discomfort.
Buying my second one as a gift.
This was my first safety razor, and I have really enjoyed using it! It has a good weight & balanced, and I like the knurled handle – very grippy with wet hands. As another user commented, there is some play in the way the blade sits in the razor. If not centered, one side will be noticeably more aggressive than the other, and if askew the blade will irritate and shave unevenly. I have to carefully align the blade visually just after the butterfly doors touch before completely tightening them down. All in all, a decent razor and a good value!
Takes a little time to get use to since I have always used disposable razors. The shave is close and smooth and I received a free pack of blades which is fantastic.
i had a shorter handle on my other razor, this one fits my hand a lot better
