Pros: craftsmanship
Cons: none
This is a great razor. I have a 1950's silver handle as well as a 1970's black handle variety. It might be all in my head, but I feel there's more heft to the 50's model. This is one great razor and might become my new travel since it's available so cheaply.

Pros: Only comparison is a weishi. Compared to that this thing is amazing. nice close shave. Mild, Easy to use
Cons: Can't think of any
I have a 1954 Z1 that I just bought on EBay. I have been wet shaving for about 2 years and my previous razor was a Weishi. This is my first vintage razor. Great razor. First shave with it was bbs. Its a fairly small razor, however I like both the knurled grip - easy to hold even when wet. It's also solidly built. Amazing to me that 60+ year old piece of equipment can hold up that well. I look forward to using it for a long time.

Pros: Balanced, user friendly, can be purchased inexpensively.
Cons: Some way prefer a more aggressive razor.
Well made and easy to use classic. If imatation is the sincerest form of flatery, this thing will be forever blushing.That thing a certain Pawn Store Ownwer is selling is an inferior copy as are most modern knock-offs. If you are new to DE shaving, good place to start.
