    It looks like Chinese made junk. At 15 bucks and buy one get one free how good can it be?

    A razor being sold at CVS and at 15 bucks Id say its a throw-away. Enough to get the job done on a trip then trash it when you get to your real razor. JMO. It may shave good enough.
    It's just Sharpening, right?

    Spend the extra 20-30 bucks and get a Merkur or Parker. They'll last you the rest of your life with a little care, and you'll skip the frustration of the cheapo one

    I recently bought my first Safety Razor.

    A couple of the experienced guys here suggested the Rockwell 6c, it isn't expensive and it can be adjusted so I can get the best and most comfortable shave. I can also adjust it depending on the blade I use, some are a lot sharper than others.

    I'm very grateful for the advice and so glad i took it, I'm not usually good at taking advice which I have to say, doesn't usually serve me as well as i would like

    Get an old Gillette at an antique store and clean it up. Will almost certainly be better that some cheap (in every sense) new one if you dont want to spend any $$$

    Just to set the record straight, I wasn’t planning on purchasing this razor, I just saw it and wondered if it was any good. I never seen that brand before.
