The sharp eyed observer probably saw yesterday that I shaved with the interesting injection moulded DE I mentioned last week. And the verdict is... not bad at all, all things considering.

Yes, it feels flimsy and the balance is off with most of the weight in the head.
Yes, it's really sensitive about getting the angle just right.
Yes, it's plenty aggressive and with an unknown blade that's not the sharpest.

But once I got the angle dialed in, it chomped through several days worth of stubble with ease and left me with a DFS in two passes.

Now, I'm not saying we shouldn't get our high end (or even mid-range) razors and enjoy them to their full potential. But I am saying that we shouldn't stick our noses up at the low end razors, because some of them can be surprisingly nice to shave with. By the end of the week I'll put this razor - along with a good blade - in my locker at work, for those emergency shaves that sometimes crop up.

Hans, it looks like the handle and base plate are one piece.  How does the cap attach to the base plate?  Does it just snap on and off?

The cap is held in place with two pegs, that goes into the two posts that centers and holds the blade. A rather well though out design overall. I'll see if I can't get some better photos later.
