    I used my Berkeley today. it was the first time using this unconventional razor.
    it has a nice feel in the hand. it's size made holding on to it very easy, without sacrificing maneuverability(after ashort learning curve).
    I used mine at 4, and got a super close shave. it felt as if it had no blade in it, although I could hear the stubble being cut away. I ended up with two small weepers. these probably my fault.
    this razor would be of great benefit to guys with hand issues (arthritis and so forth).
    I disassembled the razorafter use to see if the water got in the storage compartment, it appeared to be dry. the storage and the dial down feature make this a prime travel razor candidate.
    I'm very happy with the Berkeley Custom Shaver. thanks dark, another fine razor in my collection because of your commentary.

    Happy to hear you like it! I ended up getting some outstanding shaves from it and was quite honestly 'surprised' :)

    I absolutely agree that this could be a very good razor for people that due to various reasons have difficulties gripping a smaller razor but still want something that shaves great and have a way to adjust how aggressive the shave is.
