A decent shave at firs After a week the blades go dull really fast and you have to replace them. The cartrdiges aren't cheap. My face, especially my neck, became very irritated and bumpy after about two weeks. I don't think this is a good razor for people with thick beards like myself. If you want to waste a lot of money on this razor or you have a thinner beard that only needs to be shaved about once a week, then it should work fine. Look elsewhere.
