5.0 out of 5 stars Closest shave while still keeping your top layers of skin ; ), January 25, 2009
This review is from: Shaving Gift Set with Merkur Safety Razor, Bowl, Shaving Soap, Badger Brush, Stand and Safety Razor, Great Gift Idea for Father Husband or Boyfriend (Electronics)
I am in the military and have thick facial hair. That being said, it is important for me to have a nice, clean shaved face 5-6 days out of the week. After reading the reviews on safety razors I decided to put the multi-razor heads aside and purchased this kit for myself. At first I wasn't too pleased with it until I finally learned how to use it properly.

Now that I have gotten the hang of it, and not finishing with cuts here and there, I think its awesome. Its the closest shave I've ever had and doesn't leave razor burn like the fuzion that I was using previously. The kit may seem a little pricey, but considering that you can purchase a hundred double edge blades for around 10 dollars really helps eliminate the chance of buyers remorse. Especially when it costs 10-14 dollars for a set of 3 replacement fuzion heads that only last about a week and a half per.

I do suggest Googling "how to shave w/ a safety razor" to spare yourself and your skin the torture I went through in the beginning, lol.
