I fell in love with this set while looking for a starter to try out wet shaving. Not only is it an incredibly handsome set, its made shaving much more enjoyable. Before, I found shaving boring and a chore. I now look forward to the ritual every morning.
The razor itself is weighty and solid in your hands. From what others have said, the shave is considered a milder, less aggressive shave. For a beginner like me, it's been easy to use with no nicks. The brush is a silvertip badger brush -- incredibly soft (especially compared to "pure" or "best" badgers) and whips up an easy lather.
Considering how much I enjoy this set, I'd be happy to buy again.
