Is the 101 a milder shaver than the PH? Looking for a mild fixed-blade DE as a backup/alternative to the Progress.

I am lucky enough to say that im the proud owner of both. They are both excellent razors that provide a very effective shave. the right technique and blade offer a BBS consistantly. You cant go wrong with either one. The deciding factors are price, availability, and overall visual preferrence. i recommend the bulldog/shavecraft handle for both. If Icould only save one from a burning building, i think i might reach for the shavecraft. Hope this helps.

I have had both and would have to say that the polished head is more aggressive/efficient but not by much. The 101 is really safe though. It's very hard to cut yourself and very forgiving.

Don't know if this helps, but as a comparison the Progress set at 1.25 to 1.5 works for me.

I don't think that you can go wrong with either. Both are fairly safe mild but efficient razors. For me it comes down to the finish and I love the Polished Head finish over the shavecraft. And I like to flip the the head while shaving and then rinse but that didn't work so well with the 101.

I would also have to say that the PH is a tad more aggressive. For me, it was a better shaver than the Shavecraft. Good luck.

Nice write up! I personally prefer the Weber but both shave very well.

In my opinion, the Weber is more efficient than the shavecraft, but both give nice shaves. As for the price, both are really good options.

When I shave with my Shavecraft, I shave the same as with any other razor. Flip it over, fill up both sides with cream, rinse, and do it again. Both sides of the razor shave fairly similarly; the safety bar side is ever so slightly more aggressive. I don't see the problem of just flipping and shaving normally.

I had both and found them well made but too mild. I use a Progress on 4 and a Slim on 9.
I would go with the Weber. Made in USA.

The Weber is probably just a bit more aggressive than the Shavecraft. I get very good shaves from both. I use the dual sided Shavecraft as I would any other razor as there is very little, if any, difference in how it shaves.
