Impressive, what a treat for the price. Great non irritant shave.
I bought this razor to replace a classic gilette open comb I picked up. The gilette was an antique. I used this razor with a wilkinson class blade. For continuity I used the wilkinson shave soap you can get from the grocery store. The one with the purple tub. This was coupled with the baxter shave tonic (thank you fendrihan sampler) as a preshave, on 3 days growth. From the first swipe I could tell this was going to be agressive. I got a very close and very fast shave with this combination. Build is solid. Colour is cool. I did find the handle a little slippy when very wet, but nothing to crazy. Fatip open comb is awesome. Be advised it is very agressive. The shave felt faster, while I was actually taking my time. Definatley less passes required. I will update my review when I change brands if de blade for comparison. Closing words; get this shaver.
Probably a few of you have been wondering about the performance/value of this razor. I know I was. I shaved with it the day after I received it and was instantly impressed with the very close shave it gave but this was a working day so only 24 hours of growth. The true test came after labor day weekend with 3 days of beard growth. The Fatip Retro handled it easily with my usual 2 passes (WTG XTG) for a BBS result. The Retro is well made (by hand). I like the long handle with the ball at the end that is actually quite functional as it aids manipulation of the razor. It's an aggressive razor but if you've been shaving as long as I have (close to 50 years) you'll easily master it. Worth $39.00? You bet! Exceptionally fast delivery by Fendrihan as usual!
