Awesome Razor Head
I was very pleasantly surprised by this razor head. This was my first open comb razor head, and so I was not sure what to expect. This has hands down given me the smoothest, closest shave out of all the styles that I have used during my DE razor time. I would absolutley reccomend this to anyone that is unsure if an open comb razor is for them, as this is the most budget friendly option that I have seen, and it works like a dream.
WOW, What a difference.
I have been using a safety razor for over a year. I started with a butterfly close combed safety razor by DORCO. It was a good starter razor and with certain blades, worked well. When I wanted to upgrade and decided to try the open comb razor head by West Coast Shaving I loved it. The curve provided to the blade and the weight of the handle makes shaving effortless with less nicks than before with a closer shave with only 2 passes instead of 3 passes even with a lower end razor. I haven't tried my closed comb razor head but I will soon.
decent value. not recommended.
I've been using this open comb head for about 6 months now. its okay. I don't get super close shaves but I have to do a couple of passes. I use Gillette seven o clock stainless steel. Also, the limescale accumulates and especially on a black head it dosent look really good. like another user mentioned, it is very tricky to get even blade exposure and that really is annoying and effects the quality of shave and I don't have time for adjusting. sometimes its a hit or miss. I used the 110g west coast shaving handle. It def is heavy but with this combination of uneven blade exposure, this causes irritation.
Excellent Quality and Finish
Extremely close and comfortable shave. Two passes and excellent shave. Aggressiveness is perfect . It will shave through a 2-3 beard growth for me bbs.
