You can't say you've tried everything in the shaving world until you've given this a test drive:

John, how do you come across these things?!
Wow, that surely does not look tempting, but kudos on the manual power.

If you want to try a manual power vibrating DE then get a STAHLY. It pre-dates the vibrating Mach3 and Fusion razors by decades.

Actually got curious and had to google the Stahly.. an interesting oddity to be sure.

Can anyone tell me what a vibrating razor - DE or cartridge - is meant to achieve that a regular one does not; apart from lining the manufacturers pockets, that is ???

That had to hurt, especially as the wound spring was running down.

I have one and have used it. I keep it for its novelty but, frankly, it is nothing more than a marketing gimmick in my opinion. The razor is way too heavy, even if one likes a heavy razor, oddly balanced, and the shave isn't great.

Johnny, while it didn't hurt as the spring ran down (no more so than not using the vibrating part of a battery run Fusion or Mach3) it was annoying because it took the rhythm out of the shave itself.
