This razor features an adjustable head, allowing for more blade exposure between the edge of the razor and the guard. This is controlled by a dial in the handle and allows for a medium to aggressive shave, depending on preference. One can also hack off more hair with a wider setting and follow with a more gentle pass on a mild setting.
