Interesting razor. I just bought one on eBay to try. Did you ever try it w two blades?One of the very best razors I have shaved with (YMMV) is Saiver, loaded only with one blade. In my opinion it behaves better than some razors I have tried costing like 10 times more. A Saiver can be bought for about $10 including shipping.
I figure the only thing that matters is how happy you are with it. Lots of things to consider, but the most important would seem to be "does it please you". I had a Baili that I quite enjoyed until I dropped it on the floor and broke the stem off. IF it had been a $160 razor instead of a $16 razor (mine was actually more like $8 I think, but I digress) would it have broke? IDK. But I enjoyed the Baili while I had it and still had money to get another when it was gone. So I was happy with it.So I've been using a $16 Baili that had good reviews on Amazon. Obviously there are some out there that cost a lot more but how would people say they compare?
Rollers NEVER break down, they just fail to proceed sometimes!my awnser to the old question of cheep vs expensive is .
is it comfortable to use ? does it do a good job ?
I myself have had a better journey in a ford escort than in a rolls Royce and would you believe it the ford got me there quicker as the roll kept breaking down .
as Tomo said^^^, i have a few cheaper Chinese purchased razors as well as some higher end razors in my collection,ive had some good shaves with the cheaper Chinese razors as good as with my higher end razors, no doubting there are probably some cheap crap razors out there, but theres no need to spend lots on a razor the Chinese Yaqi razors etc do just as good a job as my high end ones, i just enjoy collecting hence why i have both cheaper and high end, but if i just wanted 1decent razor then i would be happy enough with a Yaqi or a DS Cosmetics etcLet’s not forget. It’s the blade that does the cutting.
