What can I say that James & Sean haven't already eloquently said? Firstly let me say, I bought the Leaf mainly for head shaving, other than it's both easy & a pleasure to use. The length of the handle enables me to reach round the back of my head with more confidence & the flexible head makes shaving in awkward areas a breeze, especially when I use blades such as Feathers. I've used it for face shaves with mixed results so far, but I'm putting that down to the different way you have to shave (I'm a DE shaver usually) & not a fault with the razor, more a case of user error & probable wrong choice of blades. The look of the razor is stunning & I'd recommend that you use a soft toothbrush & liquid soap to clean it after EVERY shave to preserve those looks, who'd want to see their beautiful Leaf grimy with soap scum build up. Oh & buy the stand to show off your Leaf to its' full potential.
Wanted to give this a fair review so I refrained from writing a review until I had used this for a few weeks of continuous use.
I started on this road like many others due to high cost of catridge razors buying my first DE razor a cheap Parker, and then moving onto the vintage razors looking for that prefect shave. And yes the DE razor is awesome in it's own right. But for me to get that shave I was looking for would take a good time in front of the mirror so not to cut myself or nick myself. Seldom walking away with out some weepers. So I used to shave at night so not to rush and get the shave I was looking for.
But this little gem has changed all that now I can shave in the mornings and get the results I want taking only a few mins. It's an amazing hybrid Incorporating a tried and tested razor blade with an innovated razor. Giving me a perfect shave the three blade razor gives you the choice of aggressiveness. And for me I find all three blades gives the perfect combination. An elegant razor with a modern approach to shaving. Delivery was very fast dispatched on the day of order and received within a day or two. Packaging was outstanding as well. A perfect transaction from a professional company.
