Although I'm not in the mood for buying any more scrapers I have had an itch to pick up an occasional oddball one. Owners here have extolled the shave as being mild but I've found it more than that. Heavier ones seem to appeal to my face better so this one and the marvel fine de are my go to's now. I've been thinking of selling my 3 piece Cooper and English souplex oc's because I know I just won't use them any more! That is how much I love this razor and the Fine. If you want a great safety bar razor I would say try one of these with a modern handle. Great stuff!
