I've found the Fatip Lo Storto's balance to be crucial for its performance. The spiral pattern on the handle doesn't just provide a secure grip, but also helps to distribute the weight evenly, making it feel lighter in hand.

I'd like to respectfully add to the conversation by addressing the point about the Rocca's aggressiveness. While it's true that it requires a light touch, I've found that this also allows for a more intuitive shaving experience. The Rocca's balance and weight make it easy to navigate, and the two ra...
