There is a lot of cheap DE razors available nowadays all over the internet, but from time to time i buy and try some of them if they look a little different to me.

Recently i purchased a razor wanting something milder for when I want to shave daily, with my beard i can't shave daily with all razors with the comfort i want.

It looks exactly like an Merkur head almost identical apart from the slanted grooves on the baseplate.

Weight: 63g
Length: 100mm
Handle: hollow
Material: Zinc alloy (matte black finish)
Price: £5.99
Comes with 20 Dorco blades

This razor is milder than an Merkur but with the same efficiency & fool proof angle, so intuitive to find.

Less blade exposure & blade gap too.

Very smooth shaver extremely comfortable, low profile head design.

Not to say that my beloved Merkur HD is an bad shaver, but for those days i want to shave comfortably daily i use this razor and it provides with amazing shaves.

Inexpensive little beauty, i don't get on with the other Chinese razors like the Yintal, Yaqi type head designs that are medium aggressive, shaving against the grain with my beard is painful, i always get nicked especially on the cleft of my chin.

These^ blade is held almost flat & is prone to chattering with my thick beard hair. (same head as the Maggard V3a, also many chinese razors come with these)

I have a few variations of Gillette techs which are amazing mild, smooth & great for daily shaving but i like trying new razors so here is my review :D Not sure if i can post links, but will do on here if permitted.

Happy shaves!

IMO it's a better feeling when you hit the cheap razor "lottery" by getting one that shaves excellent than if you had shelled out Big Money for an artisan razor. You feel like you "gamed" the system. (y)
