The 3 other changeable blade razors I own are insanely to light and don't feel like a REAL implement. The Personna Monsieur doesnt have that issue. Its not heavy by any means but feels like a real tool in your hands. Nothing about this razor feels or looks cheap like the $7 ones you can buy at Sallys or another beauty supply store.
To change the blade all you need to do is slide the holder out with your thumb, drop in a new razor and slide it back...thats it. No messing with latches and clamps that make you feel like your going to slice your finger trying to shut or open the blade covers. At first I was actually worried that it was so easy that it wasnt going to be secure enough, not the case at all. The blade holds VERY well and I have full confidence it will stay in place during the entire shave.
When I ordered the razor on 8/29/11 it said "Processing takes an additional 2 to 3 days" Today is the 31st and I have it in hand! Thats insanely fast for free shipping! Not only was there not a 2 to 3 day processing time but I RECIEVED the razor in 2 days!
The razor is a quality changeable blade razor that I will use for the rest of my career and the shipping time was amazing. Love the razor and the seller. Personna and the seller, HairProducts have a new customer for life.
P.S. The blades are "mini" blades - only about half the length of the blade-holder (which itself is half the length of the blade "arm.")
I have shaved with it three times so far, and I really like the quality of shave it gives. I use personna injector blades with it, and it shaves incredibly close on the first pass, making second and third passes completely unnecessary if you're in a hurry. This is something I could never do with my safety razor. Also, if you know what you're doing, this razor seems very gentle on the face. With other razors, my skin would get irritated so easily, and I had to change my regimen to shaving every other day. Not so with this straight razor, I can shave everyday with no irritation thus far. It glides very easily over the skin.
The end of the blade is straight, whereas most straight razors have a curved edge. Even injector-type straight razors. The Parker injector-type straight razor seems to have a curved edge. What this means is that you have to be extremely careful on your neck and jawline to avoid scratching your skin with the end of the blade. I know I'm new to this, and I can probably direct some blame at my technique, but I imagine that a blade with a curved edge would not be able to catch skin. My second issue is the plastic handle, it's so light the razor doesn't feel well balanced in your hand at all. But this isn't that big of an issue for me, it just feels cheap.
Excellent shave, leaves the skin incredibly smooth with no irritation! Though could use major improvements to protect against scratching the skin with its edge. For the price, it's a wonderful way to get introduced to straight razor shaving before making the leap and purchasing an expensive razor.
This is a GREAT learning tool and it is forgiving if you messed up a little. Because you replace the blade, it is always sharp and that's the trick with straight razor shaving. The price is right so if you don't like it you haven't made a big investment and because it has disposable blades, it is easy to resell if you don't like it.
There is a learning curve and you do have to get use to shaving with it. But this is a problem with the method not the equipment.
The only con is that the razor will ONLY use the Persona blades and those are relatively expensive for single edge blades. But they are well made and will last a good 5-7 shaves over the whole face. And in the learning period you will not be shaving your whole face. So they will last a lot longer.

The only Shavette I use. Shank and tang are wide enough for steady grip. Excellent razor.Published 15 months ago by Mark Paul
If you are looking to use a shavette, start here. While a shavette is not exactly like a straight edge, this will let you practice the grips and strokes. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Mark Paul
