Another wonderful razor available at RazorBladesandMore , which have joined me last week and provided great shaves , as well as being beauty of a razor.
If the Matador "El Caballero" have been a great little , heavy razor , this one has a longer handle , made of wood (Rose Wood ? ) and the closed comb head resembles the ones used by Muhle and Edwin Jagger.
This razor is balanced perfectly , I will say , even when its lighter than the Matador "Caballero" , but with the longer handle , you can "feel" the weight just at the closed comb head.
Also , due to its longer handle , its easier to hold , specially for the gentlemen with larger hands.
Ad I previously commented , this razor is lighter than the "El Gordo" o "El Caballero" razors , with a weight of 75 g (around 2.6 oz) :
Also its head design is different than the Matador "El Caballero" : this closed comb head is like the ones used by Muhle/Edwin Jagger in their razors , while the one used in the "El Caballero" resembles the Merkur 3 piece safety razor closed comb head (used in the Merkur 33C )
Matador "Sofisticado" on the right , "El caballero" on the left :
This razor is not only stylish and very elegant , but shaves also very well , like an Edwin Jagger or Muhle , but with a considerable lower price.
I can honestly say that I don't find any different in how this razor shaves compared with an Edwin Jagger or Muhle.The shaves are very smooth , efficient , and perfect not only for a beginner , but for the one who is looking for a comfortable shaver.If we add that the razor is a looker , and cost 21 , 99 dollars , we have another serious one to consider to add to our shave nook.
To be honest , I think that Muhle and Edwin Jagger has a very serious competition with these Matador razors. I'm very glad I have those two , and I know they're not going to be the last ones : two more will be joining my den very soon.
