Good price, I got mine for $12.50 when this popped up a month or two ago. Like mine, this seems easier on my grill than the fusions I was using.

1. Can I temporarily use normal shave cream or gel with this set? I don't really care about a close shave.

2. Is it smart to use this type of razor if I'm on a blood thinner?

1. You can. Generally, the shave soap lends a better shave than the razor choice.
2. Never heard anyone say one way or the other. Makes me believe it doesn't matter. Ask at any of the shaving forums.

Thanks! I just tend to bleed a bit longer than other folks when I get cut. I suspect I will be fine after the initial learning period.

There's definitely going to be a learning curve. Best advice I can offer is 1- Dont press down hard. Let the weight of the razor apply the pressure. You can always lather back up again for another run thru it. And 2- buy some styptic pencils for when you do cut yourself. cuts just come with the learning curve but you'll get thru it and never go back.

No. I can not be sure this one is well made and it look inferior to the thicker one they recently offered. If is is equal to weishi standards then maybe; but you can do better.

You can set safety razors up to be more mild than a cartridge. Foils break; so you decide

For a starter set this is pretty decent plus its shipped from the US (in particular California) compared to the aliexpress one's. I'm still waiting for my aliexpress DE handles since you got me to try them. That slow boat from China is gut wrenching...I was tempted to buy this set so it would get here faster.

I guess the other choice is to get one that is fulfilled by Amazon.....

BTW, I did order my blades from Dorco and those came like in 4 days, so will see how well they work once my handles come in (yes I ordered 3 different models since they were very inexpensive $2 - 4 a piece).

I also bought this deal about a month ago and it's a great starter set IMO. There is a learning curve and remembering not to rush, but the shave itself is really good.

Get an Alum block. It'll help stop the bleeding and also disinfect. Works wonders

Do you still recommend the BAILI BT171 from aliexpress for $6 over this one?

What "thicker one". Dorco only sell one Double Edge Handle?

BTW, use the 20% off code above if you want to buy some Dorco Prime blades which brings it down to like less than $5 for 50 blades.

This is right on the money, you don't want to apply pressure like you would with a cartridge razor, let the blade do the work.
