The progress is an amazing razor. It is a little aggressive by nature, but if you put in an Astra SP or a Shark I doubt if it is possible to nick yourself on setting 2 or 3.
I have the short handled model. It is so comfortable to hold with its wider diameter than average handle. The fit and finish are incredible.
I have a Merkur Future style razor and a Gillette Slim, both adjustables. The Merkur Progress shines by comparison.
The razor will last many lifetimes. A superb investment. The only razor you will ever need!

But, I don’t know why, after reading for the best way to have the better shave as possible with an electric razor to make my choice, I decided to give traditional wet shaving a last chance but I wanted to try another (!) razor. I built my theory on if I could have an adjustable razor to make the first pass as agressive as the merkur 34c and the other passes less agressive, especially, the third pass, maybe it would be better.
I made my choice on merkur progress after reading and look at videos on YouTube. What a difference ! Very close shave with no irritation since I can adjust the aggressiveness (1st pass: 2, 2nd pass: 1.5 and 3rd pass: 1).
Good quality razor like all the merkur products. Very happy to continue in the world of wet shaving again.
So I bought a new one and didn't pay attention to the handle length.
But to my surprise, the shorter handle was much less of a hassle than I expected. I am 6 feet tall and my hands are probably of average size for someone that size. It is definitely more comfortable to use the longer handle but this one actually works ok.
Shaving quality is still amazing (this model is highly rated among shaving enthusiasts) and I will be taking better care of this one by cleaning it regularly.
