How Do You Tell The Aggressiveness Of Your Razor

May sound like a dumb question, but if you get a used razor how can you tell how aggressive it is vs one you are looking to purchase?

Keep in mind I'm a newbie so please be nice :tongue_sm
Pay attention to how much of the blade is exposed. The Merkur HD is a great beginner razor because the head (top of the razor, over the blade) covers a large area of the blade; thus limiting the amount of blade that touches your skin. More aggressive razors will have more blade showing and are considered to be more "aggressive," and are typically not recommended for beginners to wetshaving because of the increased chance of nicks and cuts and all that bad stuff!
