Razor is very good for newbie (not aggressive). New England Shaving Company is a very good company to do business with fast shipping and reasonable prices.
Excellently made, great fit and finish. Comfortable weight. Positive threads, no slippage. Would buy again.
I purchased this razor after years of wanting one and after two weeks of using it I am incredibly happy with the product. There was a little of a learning curve with the proper angle, but if you've been shaving for awhile, you will pick it up quickly.
I am new to wet shaving and bought a grocery store DE razor to try. After a few shaves I decided to pick up a Merkur 34C and immediately realized what all the chater is about, this is a great tool. I don't know that I will buy another razor anytime soon. And the team at New England Shaving is also one of the best customer service businesses I have dealt with.
Good razor to start with - solid and well made. Only negative is I wish the handle was slightly longer.
