should I keep my Merkur HD open comb?

Thanks to Kyle I've determined that I got a Merkur HD open comb and not the standard model that I wanted. I haven't used it yet, because I want to be able to send it back if necessary. I ordered a Merkur 178, am I the one that screwed up?

I'm a DE virgin. I really don't have the $$ to buy 2 razors. Some say the open comb is great, especially with modifications. Kyle thinks I should get a standard. I'm afraid if my DE experience is bad then I will wonder if it because of the comb.

Any thoughts?

The 178 is correct for the HD. You were shipped the wrong razor.

Ditto! If you can only buy one razor, then in my opinion it should be the HD! [Disclaimer: I am partial to Merkurs!] :cool:
