Well now I understand it! I understand why DE shaving has so many fans and why once you've made the switch and have a decent razor,you'll never go back to those Mach 3 days.This is my first,quality DE razor after having bought a cheap and cheerful just to get used to the concept.I researched properly and for some time to try and make sure that I picked up the right one for me and The Futur's adjustable facility swung it in the end,I wanted something that would be relatively gentle on a day or two's growth but which had the turbo charge for those days when it was four or five.It's actually quite difficult to explain just how good this thing is,the difference is incredible,absolute night and day! Something else I now understand is why proponents of DE shaving talk about how shaving becomes a pleasure,rather than a chore - turns out that's absolutely spot on! So far,I've found that for most shaves this razor will cope easily at between settings 2-3 which is awesome because that still leaves me 4-6 should I ever need them! Wilkinson Sword blades so far have been excellent but I'm going to sample others along the way.All in all,I recommend it highly for everyone from those,like me,just making a start,to those that have been shaving this way for years.
