Great weight, Great Shave, LONG lasting Blades! Buy it... definitely worth it.
on June 11, 2015
Purchased this item on April 20th... and received 2 days later.
Have to admit I was skeptical about this product. First off there are two types of blades you can buy for this 'system'. This one has the extra trimmer blade which is exactly what I wanted.
I'll start by saying I wasn't able to see the trimmer blade. Don't worry though, it's there. I use it under the nose and around the burns. It's weird not seeing it. Not only the trimmer blade there, but it works well too.
You can see by my review history I don't give everything high grades. I'm happy to give a good review to products that meet or go above expectations and negative reviews to those products that deserve them. In this case I am hitting the 5 star button for a product that exceeds expectations.
So, here's the deal. On very first use I wasn't impressed. Call it a learning curve or my hairs getting used to it or whatever... I felt like I had to do a couple of extra passes to get a clean shave.
Shave 2 and onward - amazing.... Shaves are clean, long lasting and exactly what I'd get from a more expensive razor. I have nothing but praise for the shave quality.
This is the important part of the review...
I'm the kind of guy who only shaves 2x per week at most. I received the product on or around April 22nd and started using the razor right away.
It's June 10th... AND I'M STILL USING THE SAME BLADE!
That's right!!! Same blade. One of the best things about this razor is the hairs rinse out of the blades very easily with just decent water pressure. The glide strip is still intact and I have zero nicks or cuts. I even shave against the grain under the chin and on the neck without irritation.
I haven't shaved my head with it yet, but I'm even tempted to use the same USED blade to shave my head too. I can't imagine it would hold up nearly as well on a noggin for extended use, but I'll let you know what happens.
The other thing about the razor is the weight of the handle. It feels really good. I have used the Gillette Fusion and Proglide Power Razors and this one feels at least as good as the fusion if not better.
Also, upon order you receive a 10% off your next purchase from Dorco @ Amazon.
I purchased the ladies version for my wife... I know, not the most romantic gift, I digress. She spent a lot of $$$ on Venus razors. She likes the build of the Dorco one so far. We'll be sure to write a review of it as soon as she gets through her expensive Venus ones.

June 26 Update
I just wanted to share, I shaved my head with the 'used' blade I mentioned in the post above this past Sunday - 6/21/15. No nicks or cuts at all. My hair was longer than what I usually have it at for shaving my head, so the razor had more work to do. I did take a couple of passes, but definitely my fault due to hair length and not the razor. Seems to have done the job just fine! Shaved my face with the same blade again the next morning with no irritation, cuts etc. Just as good as it has been... Impressively the glide strip is still intact too.
Only time it felt uncomfortable is when I needed to clean out the hairs trapped in the blades, which as I mentioned previously rinse out quite easily on this 'Razor System'. I'm going to keep using this blade until it's apparent I'll do some damage. - Cheers, Rick
