I bought this because it was reviewed as a mild razor perfect for sensitive skin. This fit my situation as I have a tough beard but sensitive skin. Be very careful as this razor is unforgiving. Keep your strokes short and pay attention to the motion of the razor pass. I would not use a feather blade in this razor for my sensitive skin. I finally got a good shave after about 5 shaves. I have found that the plosives seems to be a good match for this razor. Don't get me wrong, it is a good razor. Quality is excellent and bullgoose was great. I also have the Shavecraft 102 slant and this is truly a mild shaver. I can often do one pass and the beard is acceptable for work. Because of my rough beard I usually change the blade after 3-4 shaves to keep from getting razor burn. Feather blades work well for me in the 102 slant.
