What a gorgeous little razor this is, some quality control issues in the past, but the function and quality is there now. This really is a gorgeous razor, a functional display piece almost. The knurled handle give great grip and the functionality is impeccable. Dialled adjustments up to six, I seriously recommend starting on a 2. The 2 it equal to a gillette tech as a point of reference. I started on four and it was far too aggressive. This razor has a massive amount of blade exposure, a very shallow angle and is rather aggressive. If you go for feather blades in a three piece razor (like a tech) then this is the razor for you.
