This should be one of the alternatives if you are thinking about switching to a straight razor but are uncertain of your ability to shave with a straight razor, to strop a straight razor, and to hone a straight razor. It takes regular DE blades that you snap in half while they are still in the paper. Your shave will depend on techniques and the quality of the DE blade, not your sharpening skills.
Light weight. Average to low finish quality. But very functional. If this is your first foray into the world of a straight edge, make sure you also buy an alum block, a styptic pencil and good after shave balm. You WILL cut yourself. You WILL have serious razor burn. And your shave will NOT be very close until you learn the technique. Good fun for less than $20. Not a Feather, but solid value for the price point.
