I just recently started shaving with one of these bad boys and I bought the Parker SRX initially because its great look. It performs just as well as it looks. It's very solid and has a nice weight to it. It also comes with re-fills. It took just two shaves to get comfortable and I haven't cut myself. If you're like me and have thick, course facial that seems to grow overnight, I highly recommend switching to this type of racor.
