I have a very thick and coarse beard and have been using a DE razor for about 10years. I started off with a Merkur HD and stuck with the same razor for 10 years. Well the old Merkur was a little worse for wear and it was time to replace. All I can say is wow! I drag this over my face and could not tell it was even cutting other than the whiskers were obviously gone! Beautiful razor, great shave and great value!.

Not really mild shaver
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.
