This is a three piece razor from Maggard Razors that will cost you under $16.00 and will give you a first class shave. There is good weight and balance. The top plates have to be aligned carefully to make sure the blade exposure is even. This is easily done, but it must be mentioned . I would consider it mildly aggressive, but you we'll find it hard to believe you can get such a great shave from a razor as inexpensive as this.
