Unfortunately, this razor is not up to what I was hoping. yes you can shave with it, the styling is awesome, it is all metal, but I don't get as close and smooth of a shave as I wanted. I am very particular and picky when it comes to shaving. for guys that want a bit more rugged look, this would likely work. for myself, shaving both my face and my head (keep it bald), this didn't work for me.
