    I just saw an ad on tv for

    I like the price and the fact that it's not some guys idea to create a auto order blade system.

    It can't be the greatest quality, but it's a low cost entry into the DE market.

    They sell it at Wally World for less.

    For a few dollars more you could upgrade to a much better razor. Maggards. RazoRock. Edwin Jagger. Vintage Gillette.

    If you want that razor, just get a Weishi from amazon. $12-$13...same razor without the Dorco blades.

    Just check out the antique stores and find a vintage Gillette. You will be much happier.

    They're good razors. My favorite TTO, actually. You can get them at a lot of stores in the As Seen On TV section, but not the shaving section. If you want to wait you can get them on Ebay for about half the price.

    50 years from now these will be referred to as the 'Pawn version' and NIB will go for crazy money on eBay - which is now located on Mars.

    After starting with the very similar VanderHagen I would say that it is a good jumping off point but I don't think that it would make a good go to razor.

    It can work but is a VERY mild razor. I bought into the "hype" with the MTO because it was cheap, readily available, and if it didn't work out I wasn't out much. As I said though, now that I've had some experience and practice with my vintage superspeeds and new Merkur 34c, I decided to give it another try. If you(I) have any more than one days growth, it is too mild and I really need to work at getting a good shave. My first shave with the 34c came out better than any shave I've had with the MTO.

    I say get a Lord L6 from Amazon. $10 shipped and it's a fine, if ropey looking, razor.

    So true. I wish I'd a bought a truck load of Gillette 195's back when they we're $1.95. Guess I better load up on Micro Touch One NIBs now while they're still under $20!

    IK, but it’s my thread, and I thought I’d circle back to check on them, so hopefully we can overlook the necromancy.
