I bought this for a travel razor. My only other DE razor is an Edwin Jagger DE89L (fabulous razor!) This is what it is...an inexpensive razor that does not measure up to the higher fit and finish of more expensive razors. I took a file to the edge of the razor to remove some metal burrs that were present. Regarding performance, it was more aggressive than expected. I wish I'd saved and bought a second Jagger to travel with. 3 stars because it is priced right but needs better quality control.
