Very nice razor with a good finish, and no issues with blade alignment [provided it is assembled correctly]. It has a good weight (93gms), and although the handle on this model (500) is short, it is not dissimilar to the Gillette Slim Adjustable at approx. 77mm.
I have been pleased with the shaves I have had with it so far, although I have noticed a tendency for the adjustment setting to move slightly during shaving (my sample, at least); however, not a major problem once you are aware of it. Could be my technique needs refining to compensate! Also, typical of razors made of this kind of material, it doesn't possess that 'built-in' glide of stainless steel or aluminium razor heads.
The only 'issue' I have is that no (assembly) instructions are included: they would be very useful, especially for those with little mechanical aptitude, in complying with the Care Instructions without having to resort to You-tube for the information. Bottom line, though, I like this razor a lot and it will certainly be one I use in regular rotation.
Final point for anyone considering the Progress against the Futur: if, like me, you are a daily shaver, I would recommend the Progress because it is far less aggressive than the Futur - which, imho, is just downright aggressive on any setting, including 1 - and a daily 2- or 3-pass shave is no problem whatsoever.

Usual excellent service from TSC, including the fudge sweets - nice touch! Thank you.

Bought my merkur 39c from here and now bought the progress . Nice razor not as agressive as I kinda imagined even on no5 but still gave me full bbs all over. Nimal

The first time I picked this razor up it felt like it was a bespoke design - perfect weight, perfect handle length, an absolute joy to hold. Non of the engineering faults (reported on other sites) on my razor, an even blade gap both sides. Optimum shaving angle is different to all my other razors. I find the shave very smooth, not remotely aggressive, even on higher gap settings. Much more tolerant of blade type than my beloved EJ DE89L. I have to agree with Mantic69 - this razor performs best with an average blade such as a Shark SS rather than a Gillette 7 oclock sharp edge or Feather but, as ever, YMMV

Very well made and surprisingly weighty. I came to the conclusion almost by accident that an adjustable razor might give a better shave than my Edwin Jagger, which has itself been excellent, and it certainly is.

Bought in order to ratchet it down for a few days growth before mid way setting for second pass. It does that ok But it takes time to getting used to and I find it really picky as to which blade is most suitable. I find Astra Premium works and lasts best. It's an ok razor but a little expensive. I still prefer my Edwin Jagger DE89.

This is a very neat little razor and beautifully made. I would have to say though, that it is quite aggressive, even on its lower settings. This is quite marked in comparison to my vintage Gillette P2 adjustable, which is much gentler. On the other hand, it shaves a fair bit closer than the Gillette. Strangely it works better for me on Feather blades than Merkur, being a little less draggy. In retrospect, I think I might have preferred the long handle model but seems to be out of stock everywhere.

I purchased this razor as a gift for a forum mate. The razor is just superb, really well made and perhaps the adjustable made available by Merkur. The service provided by Traditionalshaving has always been fast, efficient and kind. Thanks for all!

The Progress is an outstanding razor. I also shave with a Muhle R89, but getting to mild for my liking. The Progress I received is faultless, in view of some of the known issues with this particular razor. The plating is spot on. It s hefty and shaves beautifully.

Love the weight and ability to adjust. I sold off my EJ DE89 after I had this. Not a fan of the bulky head though.

Gives a good shave if used properly and with the right blades. It s also great to have such a wide range of adjustment. The plastic knob on the end cheapens it slightly but this is really just nit-picking.

I got this as part of the starter kit (paid the extra). It is a wonderful piece of kit. I had been using a cheap DE razor before (it was plastic and cost less than a pound - only one available in Bahrain). It gave me a smooth, comfortable and close shave. Well worth the investment.
