The smaller sized 4/8 Filarmonica is used by many straight shavers to shave around awkward and difficult to manage shaving areas or fine tune the goatee or mustache. Some find a 4/8 sized razor easier to manoeuver with and many claim to get an even closer shave, The razor is also used by many hair dressers.
It does a marvelous job at removing the little neck hairs.
