I love the look of this razor. Raw brass, rough texture, modern appearance, well made, solid.
If this were my razor, I would allow it to develop a patina and have the areas that touch my face be polished by friction.
Since this razor is designed to be mild, I loaded a Feather blade.
While I had no problems with my cheeks, my chin, jaw line and upper lip defied the razor.
No matter what pressure or angle I used, the shave was not close.
As a side note, the razor reminds me of the Merkur Futur, so I included a photo of both.
