I just bit the bullet: at US$19.95 plus US$4.95 I couldn’t resist. After using DE and SE razors for years and having shaves that required me to touch up with a cartridge (Mach3 or Sensor) I finally threw in the towel and now shave only with a Mach3 or Sensor. After reading many write ups on this razor I decided to give it a whirl to see if it can match the quality of the shaves I have with the Mach3/Sensor. If not, I won’t have ventured much at a total cost of US$24.90, roughly CAN$33.

It's times like this that make me wish that I were on the North American continent, rather than in "Rip-Off Britain". Even years ago, when we got 2 US$ to the GBP£ and better, every dollar price became the same figure in pounds.
I hope you'll let us know how you like using your "bargain buy".

What made the deal “as cheap as chips” for me was the US$4.95 charge for postage. Normally postage from the USA to Canada is approximately US$18, roughly CAN$24, which would have made the all-in cost unattractive. I’ll post my thoughts on the razor once I’ve used it for a week.

It's a shame that the oneblade got stuck with feathers blade (leaf razor price still a no no!) which I didn't like at all. Still praying for a massive discount at leaf.

To the ones that already tried this razor, what do you think of it? Does the pivoting head someway helps or is more like a gimmick?
It works in that you can use this like a cart razor, but undertaking your 2-3 pass routine. On the one hand, it delivers very good results brainlessly. On the other, it takes some of the enjoyment out of shaving.

Takes a few shaves (7 in my case) to dial in but it does deliver good results and I could also use it daily which is rare for me.

Those of you that took the plunge, has the razor arrived yet? I ordered one this evening for €20.91 (which includes delivery and a 15% discount). However if you acces the site normally there is no sign of this low price (it’s $49.99). If you use the link provided then the price is $19.99.

I just concerned it may be a glitch?
Thanks

I loved the Genesis even if I did pass it on and I would like to think the core delivers much the same.

Just too bloody lazy for me and lacks living on the edge.

I have been sorely tempted but I have to stop being tempted and stop being sorely.

I’ve got an order acknowledgment and order number, and an email saying that they’ll email me Again when my razor has been despatched, but it also says the $4.95 shipping can take upto 4 weeks, so I’m not worried yet.

I reckon that link did the rounds pretty quick, they got hammered with orders and they’re playing catch up on the manufacturing.

I might chase it in a couple of days.
