Really great device, but they charge 20 times what it cost to make. I was completely new to “classic shaving.” I found that within a few days, I was able to use this with Feather razor blades (supposedly the best) without cutting myself at all. The best part is that the razor has an adjustment knob that you can turn to change the angle of the blade and the gap between it and the razor carriage. It also has channels inside the carriage to carry the shaving scum away from your face. I start with the knob set to 1, get almost all of the whiskers, then come back with it set to 2 or 2.5 and get the really rough stuff on my neck. It’s a pleasure to use, and the blades are both cheaper and better than cartridge-based razors such as the Mach 3. I’ve been using it with standard Gilette shaving foam, which works just fine. I’ll probably switch to something glycerin-based when that runs out.

Great shave! Great razor! It took a couple of shaves to get used to the weight and long handle, also the angle you hold the razor at is slightly different. I also had to figure out which settings were best for me. I think a lot of the negative comments come from people who either install the top plate improperly when they put the blade in; or just don’t give it enough time to figure out the razor and its settings. Like I said earlier, it took a few shaves( and the associated nicks) to dial in what worked for me, but I am currently getting the best and closest shaves ever. Mantic59 put out some videos on YouTube regarding the Progress that I recommend viewing. He recommends starting out a low setting and dialing up for subsequent passes; I have to do the exact opposite. I start at 21/2 or 3 for my reduction pass and then dial down to 2 and then 11/2 for my final pass. Nick free and bbs every time. The razor is well constructed and the adjustments are accurate and repeatable every time. I…
