I bought this to try a safety razor for the first time. I've always used 3 blade Venus disposables for shaving my legs before and it was causing more irritation lately and it was also more expensive. Using the safety razor was easier than I anticipated. I just had to use a light pressure and the correct range of angle. The trickiest thing is because unlike the disposable razor there is less surface touching your skin and only 1 blade. I could barely feel where the blade was so that takes some getting used to. I heard that once you feel the blade it's time to change for a new one. I was really happy about the quality of this set considering the other safety razors I saw online were $5 to $100 dollars more.
It works perfectly, it was my first time purchasing a safety razor with razor blades, because before that, I used to buy disposable razors or the razors wher you have to remove the head and replace it, this is easier, and more effective, it was easy to use. But just in case I watched a video to make sure I do it correctly, to shave facial hair and underarms. Since I didn't know if the blades were included, I bought 2 other packs, and that's fine, it will last me a few months. Thanks
I have used this razor for almost two years. It is amazing. I often wind up shaving my legs quickly and I have never got even the slightest nick or any amount of razor burn. I always have an extremely close shave and its so simple to use. This razor has traveled to many new states with me (when traveling by air I just remove the blade and buy a new small pack of blades when I get to my destination as TSA does not allow them on planes) and has never caused me issues. I recommend it to friends and family frequently.
I decided it was time to give up the plastic disposable razors and bought this product. It gives a much closer and more comfortable shave than I have had with the disposable razors. I have not had any problems with nicks and cuts like some other folks have noted. Do need to shave with a light touch. After I use it in the shower I open it up to let it dry out and then close it again. I am able to make the blades last. (I recall my father changing a blade every day with his razor!) I am not used to a razor as heavy (compared to the plastic disposable) and that makes it more of an effort to shave with that light touch--I am used to the flimsy plastic ones. Were it lighter I would give it five stars. But were it lighter it might not be as good a quality and if that is the case, I am good with it.
No more in-gown facial hairs using this single bladed razor.

A great little razor for guys who are prone to shaving caused ingrown facial hair. The simple single blade does what it supposed to do without the irritation caused by multi-balded razors. Did I mention this is waaay cheaper than the multi bade razors as well! A win-win.
This was a present for our 14-year-old son, for his first shave. I can't comment on the blades that come with it -- we use blades from another brand -- but the razor itself is great, and a much better price than some other brands. The one-and-only "hitch" is that it's at tad shorter than expected. Even my son (who had used his dad's razor once already) commented on this. I notice a lot of 1-star reviews claiming razor-burn, skin irritation, etc. I suggest a good blade, a real soap lather (not shaving cream), and some tutorials on wet-shaving. Blades make a huge difference. The good news is that they're interchangeable: You can use your favorite blade in this razor, and still get a good shave. If my teen can, on his 2nd shave, so can you1
