At least this razor has no redeemable qualities that I've been able to ascertain. No matter how hard you try this is not a comfortable razor to shave with ever. With each stroke there can be an intense sensation that feels like a mosquito bite. The first impulse is to go back over that area with the razor to scratch that itch. I highly recommend against doing that. There is never a moment where it ever feels like it would not immediately peel skin off your face. The wonky blade exposure, where the blade bends upwards, is a real nose picker for those hard to reach spots both inside and under your nose. It will readily dig the hair out below the skin when shaving those areas if need be. These are my day two observations using the Roedter 1909.
Is the Roedter 1909 the razor for you?
1. It is Irredeemable
2. It is Uncomfortable
3. It causes itching sensations
4. It will peal skin
5. The upward bend of the blade can be used to pick your nose
6. It can cut out hair below the surface
If any of the above appeals to you, in any way, buy a Roedter 1909. You'll end up with an all brass razor you'll regret purchasing for life. It's something you can pass down to your grandchildren, especially the little git who broke the lamp in the living room.
