This razor a work of art! Beautifully machined, and stunning to look at. The all brass construction gives this razor a hefty weight. It also adds an almost vintage feel to the razor. Also, because it is raw brass, it will Patina and give it a very vintage look. The head geometry on this razor is perfect, it's easy to find the cutting angle on the first try. The razor also shares that magical combination of being aggressive at taking down facial hair, but also has that very smooth face feel. A winner in my book! This razor dethroned my Paradigm Titanium II as my go-to razor.
