Can't speak more highly than the Mergress!
Been using a Progress for many years with great success. Found however, the handle a bit too short for me.
Had The Progress lengthened to a Mergress XL and liked it so much, bought a new Mergress XL.
Cool thing about it is that the XL also fits in my leather Merkur travel razor case that I used for road trips with the Progress.
IMHO, the Megress XL is the finest razor I have ever used in almost forty years of shaving.
Kudos to Lee and Eric!
Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.
