I wanted to switch to a zero-waste razor but was intimidated by safety razors. For shaving my face, I bought the Leaf razor as a compromise, and while its a great transition razor from disposable head ones, it doesn't do too well with precise trimming like under the sideburns. This razor was not only the cheapest from all the zero-waste stores but also has the benefit of not being TOO close of a shave. This is great for people getting used to using a saftey razor. The leaf is great if I'm in a hurry because I can shave in long strokes. But ultimately, when done right, the safety razor is still the best shave. My neck bumps have undoubtedly decreased.
