This was the first double edge razor I acquired and is still one of my favorites. The handle is great for people like myself with large hands and the head is very gently and beginner friendly. It felt expensive at first, being about $80, but that is a competitive price for a quality DE razors. On top of that the replacement blades are like $2.50 for 5 or 10 so it has low upkeep. I would recommend this to anybody hoping to get into wet shaving. Don't cheap out. Your face will thank you.
