  • Anyone know if the razor unscrews at the top (3 separate parts) or is one of the unwinding/butterfly ones?

    • +2

      That looks like a unwinding/butterfly one judging by the picture. I much prefer a unscrewing/3-piece one, as it's easier to clean and dry. For what it's worth, I've been using an Edwin Jagger DE89 for 13 years.. still looks brand new, and I attribute that to being able to take the 3 pieces apart, rinse and dry with a towel.

      edit: Yup, website says butterfly opening. https://www.schick.com/products/wilkinson-sword-double-edge-...

        Thanks a lot. I agree with the cleaning. The wife has a butterfly one and I was hoping to upgrade her to a budget 3 piece.

    • butterfly model, I got this last sale.

      • Is that good or worse than non-butterfly?

    Lots of discussion in the post last time aldi was selling these

    Anyone considering to change over to DE/Safety razor I can only 100% recommend it.
    However I'd suggest investing a little more at the start to get a proper (not too aggressive) razor, some decent blades (there a huge differences- I found feather blades to be the best) and some decent shaving cream/soap as well as brush.
    Probably also helps to watch a video or two on the right technique; plenty of them out there.
    Otherwise you might be put off it real fast - which would be shame as it is eventually the cheapest option to get a real good shave without any of the usual issues like razor burn.

      Agree! Something like Rockwell 6S/6C is good to start with as you can change the aggressiveness. As it's three pieces one, there is no play/chatter. Wilkinson Sword (German-made) blade works for me.

        +1 for the Rockwell 6S. I've had mine from the original Kickstarter campaign, works brilliantly.

    • DE Razor Kit (Incl 10 Blades & 50" Ultra HD Android TV) $465.99 @ ALDI

    I tell you the Razor model is ridiculous when you buy a razor or a flip phone and get a free TV…

  • +2

    Take my thoughts with a grain of salt because it's the first DE razor I've used, but these King C Gillette ones are really good for $18 and are 3-piece not butterfly style like this one at aldi.
    Reviews on YouTube also seem pretty positive with the $30 RRP in mind.
    The replacement blades are extremely overpriced but other brands like Astro seem to be compatible and I'm about to try a few options out.

    • +1

      These are a good starter. The handle has plenty of weight in it and the shave is very mild. Even milder than the Edwin Jagger DE89 which is what most people start with.

  • Purchased this razor about a year ago when they were last selling it; as my first dip into using a DE/safety razor. The blades it came with weren't to my liking. But I have been getting good, consistent results after getting a sampler pack and finding blades that worked well for me. (Feather is my favourite, but Astra and Derby Usta also work well)

    Any idea about the TV? Maybe a rebadged Eko ?

    • i'm thinking about buying this too, any recommendation?

      • Anyone who got the tv
