Baili BR179 Double Edge Twist to Open (Butterfly) DE Safety Razor
I have tried a number of DE razors and think this one gives the smoothest shave yet.
I like the 1 piece butterfly design. This razor exposes more of the blade than a Merkur 34c or the Baili BR171. Weight is good, as is the grip on the handle. I use this with the Derby Extra blades, which are less sharp than something like Feather blades. I'm a 6 month newbie to double edge shaving and on both of the 34c, (which I recently broke) and the BR171, (which I bought with this BR179), I use Williams mug shaving soap which is dirt cheap and works well with less aggressive razors.
For the razor here, BR179, I prefer a soap that is thicker. I won't mention the name, because our host doesn't sell it, but it looks he does have a nice selection of such products which I will get when what I've got runs out.
I'm not writing a review of the BR171, because all the other reviews say what I would anyway.
