It's my faveorite way to shave! It works great! The plastic needs to be higher quality, it's kind of soft - it could be rigid is all I'm saying, and I have seen it go for 12 bucks before, and I think its the proper price for it.
I thought this was going to come with a razor but it didn't come with anythjng
Heavier than the Dovo Shavette is a plus
The Parker has a stainless blade holder vs. the Dovo plastic. It's heavier, which makes it easier for me to control. The plastic "handle" is a little off angle, so I have to be careful closing it, but iOK for the price. Don't get the Parker with the metal "handle", it doesn't balance as well.
Great starter straight blade. For $20 it a great set for beginners.
Great shave for a busy man
I love a shavette. I love the way a straight razor shave feels, but i simply don't have time in my life to fiddle around with honing and stropping. This is a very practical razor, pop in a blade, lather, shave, done. There are more beautiful options out there in the straight razor world. If shaving is a 20 minute "ritual" to you, as it is for some, go for a real razor. If you want a quick, no nonsense, excellent shave get this and some DE blades.
