    Agreed on the above Merkur suggestions. I have a basic 33C that I am very impressed with. Don't think I paid more than $30 for it.

    The razor shown on the link looks very much like a Weishi brand and for the price of $15 to $25 bucks they are a very good shaver, They are a mild razor which would be perfect for a beginer, and if you should happen to find out wet shaving is not for you there's not much money involved.. However I don't believe this will be the case. They are made in China, with that said more than likely so is your TV, Computer, Your Camera, even if it a Nikon, so equating China with junk is actually just a falsehood. Sorry state of affairs, but that is the truth of the matter.

    You can probably find a good antique DE at an antique shop. Maybe you will come across a Merkur, or a vintage Gillette. It may take time, but it'll be worth it. You never know what you'll get with some imitation, for the same price you can get an authentic razor. Good luck!

    Yeah, I thought it looked like my own Weishi too, with revamped traveling case. I must say, I am very pleased with the quality shaver my Weishi turned out to be. It can be very unaggressive if desired, but can also deliver a very close shave. These new manufacturing facilities are 21st Century and the quality of the products on the cheap are disturbingly competitive.

    In spirit I'd prefer the poster scour their area for antique shop finds and figure out a good deal from there.
