Surprisingly Good
I grew up shaving using modern, multi-blade razors and had never tried an old-fashioned one like this. My main perk at looking at one of these was that I wanted more affordable refills, as other name brands can be pricey. Overall, I am pleased with this razor. It is taking a little getting-used-to, but it does the job. I really have only two gripes, which is why I gave it 4 / 5: 1) it seems like I have to take some extra strokes to get as even of a shave (I guess that's the difference between one blade and five blades in a single pass?), and 2) it's a little harder to reach tight areas, like directly under the nasal septum, as the safety-head on this makes tight access a little more difficult. The cons aside, though: this handle has a nice weight to it, and is easy to operate for changing blades and during shaving. Since I have slightly longer fingers and larger palms, I think that this 4" variety works better for me than the 3" variety. My current shave gel worked fine. And although I had to take, say, four passes instead of two, I had equal closeness and results. After my first use, I let my wife caress my cheek, and she commented that she couldn't tell any difference in quality versus my old multi-blade razor.

Pros: Overall Quality, Durability
Cons: None
Great place to get knives and all your shaving needs. Started with a safty razor and have made fool circle. Merkur razor was everything they said and more. Best with there blades no nicks, no so with dollar store blades. Tread myself whole new kit. Pre de Provence balm and soaps where great. In fact put balm aftershave in hot water before you start your shave. No need to say more. The col. Conk Italian scissors cut great. Unlike most these days. And the 14" old timer butcher knife makes good backpack machete.
