I got this razor for my boyfriend as part of his holiday present. He absolutely loves his safety razor! He personally doesn't like the razors that have multiple blades, as he claims he gets ingrown hair that way and it's harder to control the shave. This 1 blade razor is perfect for him. He's able to get as close as a shave as he wants, while contouring around his beard, as well it's quite cost effective, since you only have to buy the replacement blades, instead of a whole razor head/new razor. Great product that he uses EVERY. SINGLE. DAY!
