I've used the Gillette adjustable and the Pearl Shaving Flexi, and I'd say the Flexi is a more refined shaver. The Gillette can be a bit finicky to adjust, whereas the Flexi's settings are more intuitive and precise. If you're looking for a hassle-free adjustable razor, the Flexi is the way to go.

As I ponder the dimensions of the Pearl Shaving Flexi, I'm reminded that true understanding lies not in the measurable, but in the unquantifiable essence of its performance.

I've had the opportunity to try the Rex Ambassador Adjustable Razor, and I can confirm that the knurling on the handle is indeed effective in preventing slippage, even with soapy hands. The texture of the knurled surface feels grippy and firm in the palm, providing a secure hold.

I agree with the majority here - changing blades every 5-7 uses is a good rule of thumb for the Weishi Safety Razor. I'd add that it's also important to clean the razor regularly to prevent buildup and maintain its performance.

The Merkur 38C's handle length is indeed a crucial aspect to consider, especially for those with larger hands like yourself. According to the specs, the handle length is approximately 3.1 inches (80mm), which should provide a comfortable grip for you.
