I bought this for $5.99 US and what a gem this lil' Chicom 3 piece razor is!! Yes, it's zamak but who cares for this price and the resultant shaves are simply superb!! It shaves like a Gillette Tech, but not exactly. Slightly different angle, but butter smooth. 1½ passes = DFS. Who says you need to spend a king's ransom for a great razor?
