Since I have been using the Shick3 blade, I have noticed quite an improvement regarding closeness verses using my traditional Bic razor. Also, the 3 blade's are sharper and stay sharper for a longer period of time. I like how the strip glides over the contour's of my face without the usual nick's and cut"s I used to get with the Bic3. Additionally, I enjoy how easy the handle is and make's shaving a breeze. Very good quality razor for the price.
