Thick robust handle, good grip, and sharp.
Cuts a lot, leaves skin red and inflamed, head hardly pivots, too big for under mustache.
I bought a normal Wilkinson Quattro as I fancied a change from my usual (and brilliant) M3. Out of the box I noticed that the handle and presence of the razor looks much nicer than any razor I've seen. The thick metal slab of a grip feels great in the hand, but it all goes down hill where it matters - shaving!
The actual blades seem extremely sharp which is great but the angle they are at does not agree with my face at all, around my chin and sideburns, this thing rips me apart without mercy, maybe it is also due to the lack of movement in the head and the horrible thin wires that aren't needed!
After my lackluster experience I figured that I would give Wilkinson one last try (their Extreme 3 was also horrible) with the titanium version free, through the post.
I must say that there is a better shave to be found here but it still can't beat a Mack 3 turbo for all round comfort and number of cuts.
Time to get me a Fusion!!
