Bump Fighter is the only razor that was specifically designed for the the unique shaving needs of African-American men. They often struggle with irritation and are more prone to in-grown hair challenges. This brand is particularly well-known for their patented Bump-Guard technology. The razors have ridges on the blade surface giving just a bit of distance to the face. So while you are not getting as quite as close of a shave, you don't cut the tips of the hair below the skin, which is the cause of in-growns. Some find this is a short term solution to allow healing and then return to a more traditional safety razor, while others find this is the best solution long term.
