Disappointed
I've had reliable shaves for years using the Merkur classic, but I ordered the Progress to give me another shaving option for when I have more than about 3 days of beard growth (the classic razor can tug/pull when the beard is long). The Progress was uncomfortable and heavy to shave with. The way the shave head holds the razor allows the edge to flex too much as it cuts the whiskers--creating uncomfortable tug and pull....just what I was trying to avoid.

Great razor...great service from WCS
This is my second adjustable Merkur. I have the Futur and now this one. Except for the fact that the adjust knob is at the bottom and don't find my razor holders, this is a great razor. If you don't have an adjustable yet, this would be a great FIRST adjustable razor. Highly recomend the Merkur. And WCS you delivery speed was simply AMAZING. I ordered Friday afternon and received it Monday morning. Wow! Thank you guys!

Not the quality I expected
I ordered this razor after reading from several sources that it was one of the best (new) adjustables around. I've had 4 shaves with this razor and today while putting in a new blade I noticed a piece of metal on my hand. It's definitely chrome plating but I couldn't tell exactly where it came from. While inspecting the razor to try to find the source I noticed all the plating inconsistencies. The front guards have several rough spots where excess plating was not polished properly. Also, the blades do not line up properly. One side will be more aggressive than the other and sometimes the blade will even be crooked resulting in the blade being at a slight angle. Merkur insists that this is due to tolerances they have in place and that the shave would not be affected. I just wonder why I haven't heard of any other high-end razors having these same problems if it's such a common issue.

Machinist
I just had my first shave with this razor and WOW. I love it! Before i was using a Edwin Jagger 89 series. Although the 89 is a good looking razor and it does it's job. I never really had a so called comfortable shave that I would have liked to of had. (just a tad too aggressive and has sharp points on the safety bar) Now the Merkur Progress Adjustable takes care of all those issues. I can't seem to keep my hands off of my face. The best shave I have had in 20 years. Get this one and forget the others. You'll be doing you're self a big favor. Great service and the best prices you'll find. Thanks WCS!

Great piece of metal!
I like this razor a lot. I shopped for an adjustable, and settled on the Progress. I always get a closer shave with this than my 38c. This is the one I use just about every day. I'm really satisfied after using the Progress for a few months. I start my first pass on 5 and dial it down for subsequent passes for a very close shave. Very comfortable on the face, with no nicks or razor burn. I usually use a Feather blade. It's not as stylish as a Futur, but it's well designed and just plain works.
