I ordered one of these and figured for $10 (shipping included) how can I go wrong. This particular model is made of zinc and a polymer finish. It comes with a cartridge made by Harry's factory in Germany. Review next week.

Had my first shave with Harry's five blade cartridge razor. Very hard trying to find a good cutting angle but I somewhat found it and the razor cuts especially good ATG. The razor handle itself is excellent and the grip very good. The blade pops in and out very easily but that is it. I don't think I will be ordering any additional blades. Next up will be a Mach3.

I used it along time ago so will give it another try.

Harry's simply did not work for me and I felt like I'd thrown money down the drain with that brand. I had much better results with the Feather MR3 system, but in this hobby it seems everything is YMMV! Biggrin

Harry's was my gateway to DE shaving. I liked it in that capacity -- and I still like it for when I'm pressed for time or traveling. My results have always been good.

I like mine. When I use a cart razor this is the one I use. Most of all I like their marketing and service to be honest. That's really why I support them. I am sure the Feather or a Bolin Webb would blow Harry's away but no way I'm spending that kind of cash for a razor I use so infrequently.
Harry's bridges the gap between traditional shaving and modern cart razors incredibly well. Marketing genius IMO. Of course I do like the product some as well, don't get me wrong!

I purchased a set from Harry's about a year ago. I was very impressed with the handle, blades, and customer service. Then, I found The Shave Nook...and the rest is history. I do still pack my Harry's razor for travel; right next to my Wee Scot and shave soap of the week.

Just tried Harry's for the first time today.  I was hesitant to sign up since I don't like subscriptions.  But, I discovered that Target is carrying them now so I could try it without a subscription and grabbed one.

I generally only use a cart when I'm rushed for time and that was the case this morning.  So, I grabbed the Harry's and gave it a whirl.

Not too bad.  I found the angle to be different than the Fusion so it took some attention in the beginning.  Gave me a very similar shave to a Fusion and with the cost being so much less, I can see this being my go-to for quick shaves and travel going forward.  Still, like Fusion, not nearly as good as my OneBlade or DE's.

Why don't you use OneBlade when rushed?

I picked up a Harry's at Target too when I saw it.

$10 for a handle and two carts is pretty much a no brainer. 

I usually use the Gillette Guard on the very rare occasion that I have to travel. 

Sometimes, like the past week or so, when I'm sick or in a hurry it is nice to have a cartridge razor as an option.

I use Harry's when traveling by air or when timing is tight and I need a quick shave.  It is ok.  You can shave on cruise control.  The shave is never as good as with my R41, but it is a tool in the chest when needed.  Not as enjoyable as a good DE shave.  The one thing it does is let me use Cremo Cooling straight up.  This is a great, almost non-lathering cream for carts and improves the shave experience.

Probably should have noted that when I'm in a rush, I shave in the shower. I've shaved with the OneBlade and DE in the shower but don't like to rush with those, to prevent nicks. Quick shower shaving means carts to me.

Same for me. I was using a Mach 3 in the shower and then bought a handle and some cartridges from ShaveMob. Insanely cheap, the carts last a long time, and the shave is great. Perfect for the shower shaving I do 2 or 3 times per week, when I don't have time to do a proper DE shave.

I understand. When traveling, carts work OK for me. The main reason why I have a OneBlade is for on-a-rush shaves. That's why I asked.
