Great value for the money.

It is a very solid feeling razor, and a good weight. I tried the heavier version of this razor and thought it was too heavy. This one works well for me. I can get a really great close shave with this razor and open comb. I searched around and could not find anything remotely close to this quality for the price.

Great handle/horrible razor head

The handle is great, the razor head is horrible.  Cheaply made and hard to use.

Excellent razor. Definitely recommend

I recently purchased this razor, the 78B. I've only been wet shaving for two year's now. I've been using the Vanderhagen as it was my introduction into this wonderous way of grooming. Took a long while to find a blade that work's for me. However it's just two short, and a bit on the light side. Like it is a child's toy. But this 78B hammered home the whole, "I feel like a man" shaving, thing. It's long handle fit's much better when dragging up on the second pass. The weight is much "meatier" but not like and Elephant. For me, it's PERFECT. My son has two different Paker 96r? and Parker 22r? which I tried. I liked the length, but they weren't heavy enough. Unlike the 78B which has the perfect amount of weight. Plus, I mean, the thing is Black, like my soul. The knurling is deep too, which I like and need as I seem to be quite messy and like a toddler get shaving soap EVERYWHERE! But I can keep a solid firm grip on this handle even while it's coated in Taylor of old bond street shave soap. And being's I only shave once a week, it's my tradition, I went with the open comb 78B, I thought wet shaving was wonderful...until now. It's AMAZING! Really digging this 78B Black razor, and for the price, I mean ya just can't beat it.

Pleasant Surprise

I received this razor as a Christmas present this last year. When asked what wanted i had said an open comb or slant razor. Later told them that West Coast had their razors on sale. This then showed up in my stocking. I found the finish to be flawless and fitment of the razor to be extremely tight. The blade seems to lock in with equal exposure on both sides without having to make sure it stays in place as your tightening the razor. The black coating is grippy even when hands are wet and yet the head is able to glide over your face while performing the shave. This razor will do the work for you if you will just guide where you want it to go. I would say it is mild/medium aggressive razor, its more aggressive than my vintage Gillette Superspeed but feels Milder than my Gillette Slim adjustable on 9. I know some say that is still mild. This razor has definitely found a spot in my rotation and is a pleasure to use.

A Great Value

This is my 2nd DE safety razor, and it's definitely a step up from the vanderhagen I got over the holidays as a proof of concept. The extra length of the handle is really helpful to me when it comes to getting leverage & maneuvering, and the knurling on the handle is nice and deep, providing a strong grip, even in shower. The overall weight of the assembled razor just feels great in the hand, and it really helps the process when trying to let the head do the work. The only downside to this razor is the machining. I was disappointed to see that the ends of the blades are still exposed since I clip mysefl with the corners every now and then. The finish at the connection point between the handle and head is already starting to wear, but it's meatal on metal & you don't see it when using the razor in the intended fashion. The head also rests slightly crooked when fully ******* into the handle, but for $20, I wasn't expecting aircraft grade precision. Bottom line is the razor works well, and looks good
