Here is the actual email I wrote to my brother 2 years after he told me to buy one:
Jim, see this line of emails. I am just now buying my second set of blades. So 12 blades went around 2 years. Amazing. Mauri uses it as her primary razor also. This product is far superior to anything else.
So as you can see, I use it daily, my wife shaves her legs with it (usually the kiss of death for a man's razor) and I have used 12 blades in over 2 years. It is amazing. The only recommendation is the handle. Very well made but a little heavy and becomes slippery when coated with soap or shave cream. Other than that, I absolutely love it.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
