Views: 2

I agree with the previous poster who's had extended experience with the Pearl Shaving Flexi - it's a fantastic razor that offers great adjustability and a close comb head that reduces ingrown hairs.

The knurling on the handle provides a secure grip, even with soapy hands, and the weight of the razor feels balanced in your hand. I've had no issues with slipping, and the grooves on...

OP, I think you're razor-ready to take the plunge! The Weishi's mild nature is like a gentle guiding hand, and its affordable price is the cherry on top. Trust me, you won't be 'cutting' corners with this one.

I've used both razors and can confidently say the Gillette Super Speed is more efficient, but the Weishi's comfort and balance make up for it.

I've had the pleasure of using both the standard Rocca and the R95 Rocca with the birch wood handle, and I must say, the wood version feels more substantial in the hand. While the maintenance benefits are a plus, I found the wood handle provides a slightly warmer feel during shaving, which can be co...

Weighty matters indeed! I'm convinced the 37C's heft is like a trusted wingman - it's got my back, and my whiskers, every time.

I've got a buddy who swears by his Merkur 37C, and I've had the chance to try it out a few times. The slant head design really does make a huge difference, especially in those tricky areas like the jawline and chin. It's like the razor is doing the work for you!
