Pros: Good price for what you get
Cons: Bevel will need to be properly set. Scales are not the best of quality.

The W59 does take a little more concentration when learning to strop it due to the acute toe angle in profile. After the first few shaves, I had no problems in stropping it.

Just ordered the same thing from Amazon for $12.19 US delivered. There is no engraving on the blade, but I prefer that. Should be a month or so before it arrives.
