The R1 is the highest quality Butterfly Razor at its price point. It's medium level of aggressiveness makes it perfect for experienced safety razor users or new users are willing to be very careful as they learn.
The R1 has a standard length safety razor handle. Those coming from cartridges often feel that it is too short, thus we would recommend a long handle model for them.
For experienced folks, this razor is the same level of aggressiveness as a vintage Gillette Red-Tip.
