I'm writing this review while I search for a new razor for home. Why? because after three weeks away from home, I finally realized that I was getting a better, closer, and cutless shave from my travel razor with little to no effort. Meanwhile, my Merkur Progress and Muhle R89 at home leave me with cuts at least half the days of the week, and not as good of a shave. There is magic in this little four-piece travel razor, and it works quite well. Flip the base of the head upside down to travel with a blade installed. Other than that, there are no tricks to this thing. It just works!
