I have found this head to give me a shave that I'd expect from a safety razor. By that I mean it's aggressive BUT only if you are a beginner. Very quickly I learnt the right technique and can control it easily and I'm getting a really great shave with a ASTRA superior platinum blade
Closed Comb Head
The YAQI Mellon Open Comb Head is by far the best razor for the first timer and the seasoned veteran Wet Shaver.
I am a head and face shaver. I love aggressive razor heads and this one is excellent. The shave with it is close and fairly smooth but I would recommend it for a newby.
I love aggressive razors and even though the YAQI Grill Open Comb Head is not the most aggressive razor I've found, it is a close second. Then when you consider the price, it is one of the best purchases out there.

Up until now, my first two straight razors were ones that I 'won' on a lottery at an online shaving site. I picked up a 3rd razor on Ebay--that was a disaster--because it wasn't properly heat-treated, and could not be honed to a 'shave ready' status. This SR --from YAQI--is the best of the bunch! Even without a pre-shave stropping, it shaves better than BOTH of my other ones, which were supposedly honed by 'experts' dealing in straight razors. At last! Something that shaves like it's suppose to!
