Like other reviews, it is way more aggressive than I thought it would be as a standard razor head. Just 1 shave, but my face feels great. Clean and smooth. I'll give it another couple weeks to see if it compares to my 34C, but so far I like it Unknown on 2nd Jun 2017
This head is way more aggressive than my 34c. Much less forgiving, easy to knick yourself and I probably wouldn't recommend this head for a first time wet-shaver. I have not been able to shave with no irritation yet; I'm sure part of it is technique, but for a standard head I was expecting more forgiveness--I have no problems with the merkur, but I have been shaving with this Stirling razor for the past week to try and work out user-error kinks. Can't say I look forward to shaving with this piece, yet. It kinda scares me.
It looks gorgeous, though, and maybe a more practiced hand would have better luck.
I wonder if I accidentally received an aggressive head. Jon-Michael on 22nd May 2017
The head that I received is significantly more aggressive than my Merkur 47C. It is far less forgiving and seems to be as aggressive as my Gillette adjustable cranked up to 7 or 8.
That said, the fit, finish and plating are very good and it fits the handle of my Merkur 47C perfectly.
I have a somewhat dense beard with medium to medium light diameter whiskers. I would rate my skin sensitivity as average.
I can't help but wonder if I possibly/accidently received a mis-labled aggressive unit. (?) Paul on 1st Dec 2016
