I know, bad pun in the headline.
I've been using the Mergress Phil generously gave me for a couple of weeks now, and I can easily see how it can be a daily driver or even only razor.
The mechanism works perfectly smooth. The finish is as far as I can tell spotless. The balance is as close to where I like it as it can get. It shaves great with different blades. It's simply put a great tool for shaving - and it's blinged out too!
