Ian, I received my long DIGRESS, HD-BRASS a couple of days ago, all I can say is WOW, WOW and WOW absolutely beautiful, a razor for Royalty. The heft and beauty of this razor is second to none, in my own opinion is, I truly believe that the Digress I have purchased from The Gentleman's Groom Room is the finest and the best safety razor money can by. It also gives the best shave., this is only my opinion.
Thank's, Michael DiSano

So I've waited a few weeks before I made this review because I wanted to try the razor on a few different settings. I've now done that (I've shaved with it from setting 1 to 5+). this really is a great razor, It gets the job done without being too aggressive. Its certainly smooth enough to shave with every day if you want to. Setting 3 is about the same level of aggression as a Edwin Jagger DE89 in my opinion. I love the weight of the brass, I find a heavy razor easier to shave with than a light one. I've found it works well with a Feather or Shark blade. Well worth the money!
