Better with these two will be decided in no small part by your technique.. Are you a DE user already? Or is this your first DE? The adjustability of the Progress gives you the opportunity to finely tune your shave to your face and technique. On the other hand, the HD is very popular with most newbies as it has some heft and moderately aggressive blade exposure.paero123 said:Hello,
And which Merkur razor will do the job better: Progress or HD? I consider to buy one of them only. Please advise.

Both are good razors with similar weight and handling. If I wanted an adjustable
I like its longer handle. (Good if you have meaty paws as I do.)
If I wanted an adjustable, I would probably expend the a few dollars more for a Futur. Its adjustment design and mechanism are really superior to the Progress. I like its longer handle. (Good if you have meaty paws as I do.)
These two pictures may help you see what I am talking about.
