Purchased the Baili BR177 TTO for $2.49 on Black Friday. For $2.49, I couldn't pass it up. I don't own a TTO yet and I wsnt to do a rose gold razor but I didn't want to spend a lot because I knew it isn't something I would probably love and use all the time. I decided to give it a shot with a Shark Super stainless, and see what kind of shave I could get with some relatively cheap hardware. Surprisingly, it was a pretty good shave. Though I do have to say the Shark blades just feel very dull and it felt like it dragged. And that's with only 48 hours of growth. I do like the razor and I plan on trying it again with a better quality blade and see how that goes.

An interesting handle. I like the juxtaposition of the balls at either end. Use it with a blade you like to get a better feel for it. Who knows, maybe it’ll be the buy of the century!

Yeah, it is a decent looking handle and for the money it had to be worth a shot. I may try it with a Feather. It was a mild shaver and may work well with one. I just wanted to experiment with an inexpensive razor and blade combo. I used to use the Shark blades but I definitely do not like them now. I'm sure they work for plenty of people. I was one. If my Progress or Mergress don't come by Tuesday, I will give it another shot.
