What Your Father Didn't Teach You About Shaving (And Grooming)
Gives a close but not too severe shave if you take good time with the prep, but could be too close if you don't. It is light and therefore handy to use, the longer handle gives better control, and seems to work best with (strangely enough) Feather blades. Good general purpose razor likely good for dedicated beginners as well as those of us who have been using the shaving brush for 40+ years.
This razor is ideal: inexpensive, stylish, and mild. While the Feather blades that come with the razor are too sharp for my sensitive skin, Derby and Astra blades work best with this model. The handle is very light compared to most safety razors. Overall, perfect for a beginner, provided that you can find a good blade.
I got this to use as my work razor as I commute for shift work. It's a good razor for the price and for those new to double edge razors. I found the feather blades a bit to brisk for my sensitive face.
First safety razor I've bought and its great.actually look forward to shaving now.I think I was lucky with the feather blades too,I can shave against the grain and no rash or cuts.
As an introduction to double edged safety razor shaving you'd struggle to find better value. However be warned: graduating from a cartridge razor to this is like switching from an air rifle to a machine gun. Its sharp and requires more attention. Get a bleeding control kit and some good shave soap.
