Cheap vs expensive safety razors: does it matter?

I'm in the expensive camp.

I could shave with a 10c BIC disposable, but I splurged on a luxurious beautiful gold Fatip Grande OC that's 300 times more expensive.



You only live once, so shave like a BOSS! :a39:

Funny how they shave even better than they look, and they look pretty damn good.

Plisson/Joris razor is mere 10 times more expensive than the Fatip. I am clearly in the shaving elite. I'm a 1%er in the shaving world.



 
Now that, is a work of art. Fantastic.

A Fatip Grande wouldnt look out of place in a bathroom that held that either.
I couldn't agree more, Mike. But for those casual days at the chateaux, when I don't have official protocol to worry about, I too shave like a man of the people. A noblesse oblige gesture, if you will. The 2%er razor comes at play for the gentler shaves. It's only 100 times more expensive than the BIC, but it'll do.

Yeah. Some days the Alfa Romeo beckons louder than the Maserati. Such is life.

BTW. Did you notice the wrong blade clamping points on the Wolfman?

I hadnt seen that particular razor before but that doesnt look quite right. In some pictures, depending on the lighting, a reflection can make it appear those surfaces arent parallel but I dont think thats the case in that picture.

Caveat emptor.

Just received my first FaTip razor - the Piccolo Special Edition with OC and SB plates.

Got the Bolzano loaded up and ready to go for my morning shave. :)

Good for you! I just got my Fatip Gold Grande last week all the way from England. It has a surprisingly nice finish. Will give it a spin tomorrow...
 
I enjoy reading you guys... I sold my Timeless to settle on a Fatip Grande :001_smile
The Fatip is a fine razor indeed, and although I know that "beauty is in eyes of the beholder", I find Fatips bellissimi!
