    The razor itself is pretty nice. I have two of them. The heads are all the same but handles are different. Comparable to a EJ89 or similar and are slightly more aggressive than a gillette tech (IMO). Half the price of a EJ89 though. The only downside I quibble with is blade alignment. It is a bit more hands on but once the blade is aligned you are good to go. It looks like the head posts (where the blades go over) have a bit of slop to them. This should not dissuade you from buying as they are a nice razor for the money.
    Saving all my whiskers in a 55gallon jar. Is this a problem?

    I liked mine. I ended up using the handle for a gillette new deluxe, but the razor itself was decent. Probably my favorite modern razor in that price range.

    Great people to work with. Decent razor. It is a lower end one and I don't like it quite as much as my EJ98 or 34c, but they are good for the price.

    I have an MR1. As others have stated, they are a great bang for the buck. Brad and Casie are great to deal with too.

    You do need to make sure you have the blade aligned. Not a big deal, just don't forget to watch it.

    I have the MR10, and it's my preferred razor. Not saying much for a newbie, I know, but I like it better than my Merkur 33c and the Gilette FatBoy.

    Perhaps the best value out there in a new production razor, IMO. Take a look at this:

    I have an MR6. I love the handle and use it on my other razors all the time. They're a fantastic value for the money and I never hesitate to recommend them to others.
    I've never installed a base plate upside down, so at least I've got that going for me

    It's been great for me. I have the MR1. Like someone else mentioned, you have to be a LITTLE careful when placing a blade, but once it's in it is in. The head has more tolerance than some of the other companies, which is how they are able to offer the razor at such a low cost. Also, the materials are the same as almost all the "modern" safety razors, so that is not a concern. AND, they are GREAT to work with. They even have options to choose your own blades/soaps/creams for samplers, which is great in my opinion.

    The only "issue" I've found is that their inventory seems to come and go a bit. But if they have it in stock, it will ship within 24 hours. They are that fast, and very easy to work with.
