What Your Father Didn't Teach You About Shaving (And Grooming)
I've been eyeing up one of these razors for a while as most razors don't give me the closest shave that I want. This baby delivers in every aspect. You can turn it up to six and it will mow down several days growth with ease and then you can dial it down to one and shave over those sensitive areas with ease.
It's too heavy for my 70-year-old hands and the handle's lack of grooves makes it slippery. Impossible to shave close under nose.
