handle so big.
It can be also used as a weapon.
Very pleased overall.
I received this razor today and gave it its first run through. I wanted a heavy razor and this absolutely qualifies. I have been shaving with vintage Gillettes exclusively for years and the weight was actually a big surprise at first encounter. After a bit of negotiating, the handle and I came to terms and I was very pleased with the end result. It appears that the quality of manufacturing was top notch. The only thing I was disappointed with was getting blade exposure equal on each side. This is something that another reviewer encountered. I had to mess with it a little. The first time I loaded a blade, it was actually slightly off kilter (at a slant) once the razor was assembled. I had to mess with it to get it straight. That was a bit disconcerting. After disassembly and reassembly another time or two, I no longer noticed that issue, but the blade exposure was very slightly uneven. In the end, I spent very little and got a good shave. I do wonder if there is a consistent issue with blade orientation and exposure, or just a slight defect with what I received. The handle quality was spectacular.
I like this razor a lot.
Ma first razor of the WCS Midnight Collection (the other being the 84B open comb). The head is mild, comfortable and still efficient enough for me. The handle is very heavy, the heaviest of all my razors. Once I got used to it, it's great though. Excellent grip.
Great razor for the money.
You can't beat this safety razor for its price. It rivals most razors on the market. I like a heavy razor, and this didn't disapoint. The only downsides I see is that the heft of this razor may not appeal to most people as it can be a bit much for some, and at times it can be a little hard to get the blade exposure even on both sides. For the price, you can't beat it.

Awesome razor for the money. Feels very good in my hand when shaving. Good product.
