I am living on a little money. I used Bic throw away's before this.
I am using Personna Blades in it. The Bics were tossed after three shaves.
I am getting a week out of these blades. This razor works fine for me. Sure I would like a Muhle or Merkur. But I have only $30 bucks left over a month for gas and extras. So I am trying to get by cheap. I got a boar brush and some crappy soap at Walgreens.
I am very pleased with this razor. Three passes to a great shave with no nicks. It does a great job and sure beats disposables.
