the Digress HD
Submitted on 2015-11-16

I have been wet shving for over ten years now and currently have a very extensive collection of vintage & modern razors. The Merkur progress is my favorite (modern adjustable). I have other progress modications in my collection. So when I ran across the stainless Digress HD I just had to have it. The different knob design made it very aesthetically pleasing IMHO along with a bit more weight due to the knob length. A big thanks to Ian & the rest of the gentleman at the Groom Room for allowing me the pleasure of owning another modified Merkur progress. It will most likely outlive me. :)

Kind regards, Frank

The stainless Digress HD is well balanced, provides a great shave, and the aesthetics are far superior to the OEM version IMHO.

A quality shave

I have to say that this is a high quality piece of kit, the workmanship that has gone into this part is outstanding and without doubt improves not only the look but the service of the shave too. The dial is far more accurate now. This is a thing of beauty, it really finishes the razor off and makes it one of the best looking out there. I am sure I will have this razor for the rest of my life negating the initial cost. Very very happy.
