He didn't show the Gillette Super Adjustable, my favorite of the Gillette adjustables, though he hints at later plastic models, and he didn't tell us anything about the Schick adjustable, which I would have liked to know more about.

Of the razors featured, the Schick injector was one that I could never figure out. It would irritate my face and leave stubble in the hard to reach areas. Maybe some of you who have good results with them can extoll the virtues of injectors.

I like the Progress and the Futur, but never used the Vision. That's what I would recommend to new wetshavers who do not know how mild or how aggressive to get. They can find what works for them without having to buy more than one razor.

The reason my favorite DE razors are the Merkur 34C and Merkur 37C is that I can take them apart after each shave and keep them dry and in good operating condition. You probably can't take apart an adjustable without messing with the calibration and there are probably parts inside that get wet and can't be dried after each shave. Plus, I like the one adjustment the 34C and 37C offers.

You can break down the Futur and Progress but its not necessary after each shave. The Vision is a monster razor but it can be broken down completely and its recommended to clean it often especially if you have hard water. Merkur makes the Vision in such a way that if you close it down it will not shave. So having seven settings is a fallacy. Merkur claims it made that way for safety reasons? Go figure.
