Let me preface this by pointing out that I had never before used a shavette before I was lucky enough to receive one from Pereira Shaving. My frame of reference is therefore a bit... wobbly, at best, when it comes to reviewing one.

Getting the blade in is easy. Getting the blade lined up so it's even is a little trickier, but if you're used to putting a blade in a DE razor you should manage easily enough. Once in it's held quite securely, and I've yet to have a blade slip on me.

The one thing I find somewhat awkward is holding the shavette as I manoeuvre it around my face, however I'm informed by people who know how to use straights that it should be easy to learn if I devote time to it.
Overall I do enjoy the shavette, even if I so far havn't worked out how to get it around my jawline. It works great on my cheeks and lower neck, and it's near perfect for defining the edge of my goatee.
If you want a ring style shavette that wont break the bank, you could do a lot worse than looking at what Pereira have to offer.

Camilo has some interesting designs. I don't think I have seen a shavette that takes a full DE blade before this. That should definitely save some thumbs.

That full blade jumped right out at me too!

In Italy they are quiet common.

Very nice Pierpaolo. I will need to investigate these and see if I can bring them in.
