    I have some of those. They are nice and sharp but very fiddly in the hand. I love them for slicing the top of bread loaves before they go in the oven, though. Actually mine are Kai brand, come to think of it.
    Pretty don't shave. Sharp shaves.

    Some cheapo shavettes are a real horror show. Some are not so bad. I was using them a lot before I retired, so I didn't have to carry so much shaving paraphernalia every time I went on a ship. For a long time I used the ones from Sally's and they were okay if you were very careful to get the half blade mounted correctly. Now my go-to shavette is a swing-back type using half DE blades (I prefer Feathers and bought a lifetime supply of them several years ago) and it was a bit over $3 from a Chinese fleabay seller. It's not too bad but now that I am home forever I really don't use a shavette very much.

    In the under $5 range, I suggest avoiding the slide-out types. They can be very fiddly. The swing back types are easier to load and they hold the blade more securely in my experience.

    A Parker is fairly affordable and is a bit better than the super cheapies.

    If you would like to try the feather Alan I'd send it to you for a test spin. But keep in mind that after you try it you might really want to buy one then.
