My SR2 is fine. So is my friend's SR1. Tons of barbers in India probably use these things every day. Not saying yours isn't bad, but it sounds like it's not the norm.
So, to the people who have gotten crappily finished Merkurs or Fatips, and have had the stud screws of their Muhle or Edwin Jagger 89's snap off after 3 months, are we supposed to conclude that things made in Germany, England, and Italy also suck?
It loudly proclaims on the side "Made in India" and it looks like it. The 'finish' is so cheap it doesn't even exist...
Leave the country-bias arrogance at the door, please.
