    anyone use one?

    it ended up in back of drawer after first use it left tons of irritation
    i gave it a second chance
    i was testing israeli reds and want to happy, and didn't see what the hype was about. i figured give the v3a a shot
    i think i did not pay attention to blade alignment first time, i didn't know these are a bit loose

    long story short ......got the best, closest, smoothest, most comfortable shave ever with a DE with this combo!!!

    i waited until 3rd shave to post in case it was a fluke
    now i need to try other blades with the V3A

    I have one and it has been a while since I have shaved with it but are correct. It is a great shaver.

    It's one of my favorite modern razors. FYI, identical razors under different names are available from Stirling, Fendrihan, and Italian Barber.

    I bought a Chinese version a couple years ago for about $5 as I wanted chrome rather than the gun metal only available from Maggard.

    I think this is what you are hunting. I have not used this particular head but I have had great success with two other Yaqi heads. If you order more than one I think they combine shipping.
