Well, I just got this in the mail today from Joe @ ItalianBarber. $20, I figured "Why not". I wasn't sure what to expect, but I am going to jump right into it. I will be shaving with "Jaws" tonight as I have 5 days of growth to rid myself of. Impressions: - The appearance of the razor online is deceiving. Although the handle looks thin, this razor it quite hefty. It's also head heavy which I think will add great balance. -The finish on the razor can seriously be compared to that of an EJ. This thing is shiny and flawless in appearance. No FaTip QC-like finish on this one. Even under the head there are no sloppy welding marks, unlike what some of you have experienced with your Merkur's. - Grip on this will not be any issue. Even for you guys out there with bigger hands, although you're working with a thinner handle, the longer handle somehow seems to compensate in assisting the grip. The knurled pattern is kind of a diamond-spiral. Need a travel case? No problem. It comes with a simple blue hard-plastic case with a flimsey plastic insert to "try" and hold the razor in place. It shifts around easily. The insert would be my only dislike thus far. I think plastic U-shaped clips to hold the razor in place may have been a better idea. But I'm not complaining here. Just a suggestion is all. All in all I am very pleased so far with this razor. Personally, I am surprised this doesn't sell for about $40-50, or more. "Shut up Brad and gimmie some photos". You got it.
