I just purchased this razor after trying a cheaper version that uses disposable blades. I really didn't like how that made my face feel and was hoping that this one would be better. To my surprise it is very easy to shave with and is super sharp. I am very happy with my purchase, and I do have a strop coming soon to help keep it razor sharp. I like this razor and it is well worth the cost. I didn't want to spend too much, so with this one on the cheaper end of these styles I am very pleased. Does the job perfectly.
