Fresh on the market and there is already (as with most new razors) lots of talk going round in shaving circles, one area of most concern is uneven alignment of the bottom bar if you open/close the top cap around setting 3.5. I have noticed this on one razor, but not on a second. I have a feeling the 'play' that exists will be more prevalent when the razor is dry/contaminated, and less so when used daily. It is not something I am overly concerned about as the razor comes with a warranty and the owners assured me personally any/all problems will be resolved should they arise. Something as simple as a cap replacement can be the solution, or maybe a stiffer spring in the chamber. On the occasions that it did that it was not hard to resolve, a quick press with three fingers would line everything up firmly in a second. I had a pleasant first shave with the razor, and will post some more findings in a week or two. My only gripe with my first shave was that I expected a closer shave on the top setting, but I'll play around with blades (I used the manufacturer's 'Willys' brand) and the razor to see if I can get to the happy zone, The low setting was smooth and on point and left my stubble at an even, slightly protruding length, perfect for sensitive skin or guys with problem skin/areas.
The revised model has arrived and the action lowering the bar is even, smooth and controlled. The new model is 4 grams heavier, so I suspect the spring was upgraded. The dail is certainly tighter than the first version, and you are going to have proper grip to adjust with soapy hands, on the other hand this is a great feature if you dail up before you shave as there is now way it will adjust by accident.
We have been authorised by the supplier to sell the Model 1 at a reduced rate to recover our shipping costs on the replacement razors, so grip a bargain while it is available, both of these razors presents serious bang for your buck!
