Quality product, the Gillette Vector Razor is comfortable in my hand and allows for full control while shaving. It is very easy to change blades and conveniently utilizes Atra Plus blades. Item is exactly as described. Reasonable price, great value; highly recommend.
While I did not need all four razors, I bought them because I purchased a single razor last year from a cutlery retailer here in Chicago. Unfortunately, demand for the product is so great he has trouble keeping them in stock. The reason? Proctor & Gamble/Gillette in their infinite wisdom no longer offer the Atra razor for the American market. This is the foreign equivalent. While it appears to be a disposable, it is not. The product accepts replacement blades from Gillette and the competition. However, the razor is not solid metal like the ones available up to the early 2000s. It is also lighter. The aforementioned purchase, which was made in India, has thus far lasted me over a year. Not sure if it will last 20 years like the metal ones; so I figured I would stock-up. Overstock states the product is Made in USA. This is false and not the first time they have misstated a products country of origin. All four razors purchased from Overstock were made in China. Since I am a life-long fan of the double-blade I was willing to compromise by purchasing a foreign product.
