    I haven’t used this razor enough to give it a decent review but the box and product are beautiful.

    This razor is good for those starting out, or specifically those looking for a cheap safety razor. However, with cheap products, in many cases, you get easy damages. Metal/water stains and attachment, for one, are very prone to occur with this product.
    For me, on shave 3 or so, the coloring of the razor seemed to blotch as if it were coming off and the butterfly head rattled often.

    I’d still recommend trying it out though, but only for temporary use.

    Not an especially close shave, especially if you are wanting to shave more regularly with shorter growth.

    I find myself going against the grain straight away otherwise the razor seems to struggle with the shorter hair closer to the skin on the second pass.

    It’s assembled well and it feels good quality, nothing to complain about and if you are looking for a very mild razor you could probably do much worse. If you like a super close shave you’ll have to spend a bit more.

    Not a bad razor overall, I’m not fussy enough to feel the need to upgrade in a hurry but my only gripe would be that I wished it was more efficient. I am using it with Shark Super Chrome blades which gives a more than acceptable shave. I don’t have particularly tough stubble though so if you have a coarse beard go for something else.

    I love seeing all the helpful reviews as it is absolutely a tidbit intimidating starting out. Women, I think, get a bit more worried as we have so much more real estate and curvy areas (for the guys who also shave all the bits, this is for you too, of course). HOWEVER, it would seem that many women only shave a few (or couple??) times a week (finding this out in my early 20’s, blew my mind) and I only found one review in all my reading that was written by someone who like me…absolutely abhors body hair. I shave every day, and have done so since I started shaving at 12 or something thereabouts. Now, it is important to keep in mind that everyone’s bodies are different. Skin types and…how your skin sits against your body, vary. For reference, I am 5’2 and 99.6 lbs with an athletic build. When I watched videos showing how women safely shaved their armpits I was confused because their skin laid flat with their arms upraised. I have a very deep indent when my arm raises, many angular points, so I had to figure out my own tactics. Shaving my calves was also a tiny learning curve because of grazing against the muscle line and not having a pivoting head. I would also NOT describe myself as having sensitive skin. I keep reading about people switching their blades every few shaves!? I used Schick men’s razors until I was probably 20 then switched to Harry’s. I replaced my blades every two months or so. Considering the cost as well as wanting something I could easily toss in my hiking pack or keep in a go-bag. (Yes, I will shave if on an extended hike (+4 days)) provided I find a water source). So, I wanted to write the review for the folks like me out there, and provide what answers I can.
    In short, maintain a 45 degree angle (like you have probably always done), do not press down, let the weight of the handle do the work, use short and slow gentle strokes when starting out (I absolutely am back to doing long strokes on my legs now that I am confident *not cocky*), watch some videos, pay attention to the curves of your body as well as to how your hair grows, never slide the blade horizontally, don’t slide your finger along the sharp part because..duh. The handle is literally made to protect you; it is not just the blade against your skin as there is a guard. When installing the blade, hold it by the dull sides (again, common sense but still), and be mindful.
    Now, I am pretty much recommending this to EVERYONE. However, please keep in mind that you do need to be mindful. If you are one of those people (ladies and fellas both) who can be an airhead (you know who you are, and there is nothing wrong with your quirk) then this is perhaps not for you. Like any instrument that can pose a risk, take care. I turned off the shower my first few times while shaving and used shaving cream so I could pay close attention. By week -2- I was shaving as I always have and am getting quicker. The only nick I really got was from a compression mark from socks and the blade (feather) bumbling over it in my first week. Besides that, it has just been a matter of being mindful. Brand new and aged blades can also require some more focus.
    Don’t be afraid to give it a shot, be mindful and take time for yourself. Enjoy!
    I love my Weishi handle. I have now had the opportunity to test this against two other handles and I am staying firm. MY ONLY COMPLAINT is that the attractive anodized coating has come off the head of my razor in entirety and looks less snazzy which is just a bit disappointing. If Weishi reads this and wants to comment, I would be interested as to why this happened. Before my Weishi, my husband allowed me to use his Merkur 34C handle to see if I really wanted to make the switch and I definitely prefer my Weishi. The Merkur Handle has a classic vertical lines design on the handle and a classic spin top. The longer handle on the Weishi Handle is fantastic, and it is far grippier. IN FACT, SUBSTANTIALLY MORE GRIPPY. This matters greatly as some of those artistic and classical looking razors are aesthetically pleasing but I rather not risk a slip and wound myself for no reason. The longer Weishi handle is great for getting the correct balance while doing my legs and not applying too much pressure. In lieu of my switch my husband tested the Shaving Revolution Handle. It is both longer and heavier than the Weishi. While I enjoyed the added weight I found that the even longer handle made me wary when doing sensitive areas and was concerned about bumping the end of the handle, causing an incident. The head is almost identical to the weishi and I liked it, I just prefer more of a paring knife for delicate work than a longer chef blade. The Weishi handle is a perfect length balance between the classic short handle and the very long handle of the Shaving Revolution. This is purely personal though, my husband loves it.
    As stated above we all have different skin. Please be careful as I have seen people have all sorts of different responses to different blades. Don’t be afraid to get a sample pack, it is cheap. Also, as stated above, I was used to being cheap and making my blades last what is probably a questionable amount of time…I learned the uncomfortable way that this does not fly with DE blades. I went two weeks and was getting nicked. Dubious, I went to my husband who proceeded to be somewhat mortified and tell me that I need to change my blade every week. My skin was grateful for the correction…I doubt there will be many of you who shave as much as I do, but to translate, change your blade every 5 to 7 uses at most apparently…haha. In the last month I have tested the Weishi Blades, Shaving Revolution Blades, FeatherLite Blades, and Derby Blades. My first blade was the FeatherLite which are renowned for being sharp. This was maybe not the best place to start but it was fine. Maybe that is why I got the nick over the compression sock dent? I will say my husband had an unpleasant time using this blade on his face, and even my tough skin got a bit dry in a few spots. He shaved half of his face with the Featherlite and half with a Derby. The difference was significant. It looked deeply uncomfortable at the very least. I mean, really uncomfortable. Poor guy. We both loathed the Shaving Revolution Blades, they felt weak and dull. The Weishi Blades were a step up from the Shaving Revolution Blades and probably a safe place to start but nothing to rave about. Again though, I think Weishi chose a safe start so I understand. Now, the Derby Blades were an experiment that my husband ordered as they are supposed to be a bit thicker and sturdier. We both love these. The other side of his face was gorgeous and unblemished. I am able to be far quicker with these blades as they feel more firm. I LOVE my Derby Blades and will probably stick with them for life. Go experiment; just always use a bit of caution with a new blade.

    Good luck, and happy shaving

    I’ve used this razor several times now and it’s holding up very well. The butterfly opening feature makes it easy to change blades. The weight of the razor makes it have a good quality feel. Highly recommend.

    I prefer my Dad’s 1960s era Gilette, but this is a fine choice for a backup/2nd location. I’ve even thought about adding a second I don’t have to replace a blade every day (I think I’d rather replace two blades every other day).

    The grip with soapy hands would be improved if the knurled edges were either a little sharper or deeper,or if the cuts were wider (placing the stubs/posts/nubs a little farther apart might accomplish this, too, but not sure). The grip is adequate for shaving, which is the primary concern. If you’re a person who routinely needs more than one blade per shave, it’s a little slippery when twisting to replace blades when wet/soapy, if you find that sort of thing annoying.
