IMPORTANT: Error Correction Re Blade Exposure of the "Bakelite" Razor

I made an error in today's article on the shave character of the Merkur "Bakelite" razor.

Though I stated the blade exposure is negative (which would yield a mild shave) but that the razor also has large spans between the blade edge and both the top cap and the safety bar. My article suggested that the shave character seems a bit aggressive because of the large spans despite the negative blade exposure.

Actually the shave with this razor seems a bit aggressive because.... well.... it is. It has a slightly positive blade exposure and the large spans.

So shave carefully with this one or it will nip.

Happy shaving!
