Pros: Overall Quality, Durability
I am new to the straight razor. This one was not my first choice, because I felt like there were good blades for less money. Most of those were sold out on about every site out there. Well, why not get one of the best brands of razor, and just piece together your own starter kit? The Knife Center seemed to have the best deal at the time. Now I know it is important to have your blade shave ready. One of the reviews said they bought this blade from here and all they had to do is strop it. At first, I wasn't sure what I was doing. My few shaves were not great. I learned to strop better. I learned to do the hanging hair test, and stropped again if not good. I developed my angle. Once more comfortable, I would do a second pass with different directions...much closer and smoother results. At first my cheeks would shave smooth, and later, I could get better at shaving my neck and chin. I am pleased with this purchase!
