"Feeling concerned about the amount of plastic I use I purchased this razor about 4 years ago. I am still using it. My husband and I SHARE it so this little guy doesn't just shave faces but also legs and underarms with a good cleaning between uses. It cuts easier than a standard disposable razor so you have to be careful and there are some women I know who would not be satisfied with the closeness of this shave but it's good enough for a greenie like me. My only complain is with the blade replacements, they coast an arm and a leg and come in a plastic case. I hate to say it but it is a much better and greener deal to buy the replacements from Amazon. Please forgive me."

"I bought this as a gift for my husband. I would have bought the gift pack but he didn't like the razor in it. After using it, he likes the weight and balance but suggests a longer handle. He said it was very easy to install and change the blade. He is glad you sell the replacement blades."

"This is a good first safety razor (Merkur brand). I purchased this for my husband and his 2 major complaints are: 1. Due to the waffled edge, the razor doesn't shave very close. In order to get a fairly close shave, he has to do about 3 passes. He's used my fathers old Gillette and LOVED that one. 2. The chrome started to pit almost immediately. I know the razor is *only* $34 bucks, but I expected something a little better than pitting after 2 weeks worth of use. So, basically, if you want to try it out and are afraid that you might injure yourself with a straight blade (or other safety razors), give this one a try. If you really like it, you will probably start searching out another razor of better quality and/or can shave closer. If your fairly confident that you already want a safety razor, go hit the old antique stores and look razors there."

"Nice weight, longer handle would be better. Otherwise working well. Happy to be decreasing the landfill with all those plastic throw aways razors."
