Type: Safety Razor
Great razor very happy with the shave it provides and the quality if the razor.
I've been using a Feather safety razor with Feather blades. Once I got the knack of whipping up the soap and using the razor, I now have the smoothest cheeks and neck and have received compliments from my wife. The alum block and Seville Eau de Toilette make a very good finish to the job. I highly recommend reading the Guide to Wet Shaving for some essential tips, and it has reduced the frequency of cuts. I look forward to experimenting with some of the other products from this store. I must admit that I don't have the nerve to try a straight razor so I do not expect to be writing a review about that.
This is a beautiful piece of equipment. I have enjoyed using the Merkur razor for a few months now and have just finished shaving with the Feather. I feel like I have more precise control with this razor, because of its knurled handle and thinner head. I'll continue to travel with the Merkur, but the Feather will be my new daily shaver.
