$2 Chinese TTO Razor review
I needed a travel case for my designated travel razor, a 1952 black tip super speed, so I ordered off fleebay a $1.99, shipping inc. TTO (twist-to-open) razor that looks similar to the Micro Touch One. I was going to throw away the razor but decided in the name of Razor Science and all things crazy to shave with it this morning.
I will keep this review short. It is a toy. The molded pot metal TTO on the bottom of the handle is very sharp on the bottom edges and screams bad quality. The razor actually weighs a substantial 49g verses the steel handled, brass head Super Speed that weighs 46g. As for shaving with it, two things are quickly apparent. I did a 2 pass shave (WTG&ATG) and it barely shaved any beard off. It is ridiculously mild. The other issue is if you look closely at the attached picture that compares it with the Super speed, you will notice that the razor head is practically flat. I could not figure out how it is possible to properly shave under the nose or hold the razor at the right cutting angle. Needless to say, I gave up after two passes and re-shaved with my Slim Adjustable.
Conclusion, the case is worth $2. The razor is useless. It concerns me that the Micro Touch One will be equally useless and permanently scare newbies away from DE razor shaving.
