This is my go to razor. Especially for head shaves. I actually won this razor in a giveaway a several months back. I did not want to write a review before giving it a full try. I reach for it more times than not. If I am in need of a good shave before an important event, I reach for this. It is a razor you need to respect because it will bite! Just pay attention and do a proper shave. Use good technique and trust the razor. This will perform. The handle is a work of art! Truly beautiful. This is a razor you need in your shave den.
