I used a Gillette Silver blue blade which I usually find suitably sharp enough for most razors
Thanks for sharing your experience Andy, helps those who've not tried it build up a pictureSecond shave today with the mulcuto today
It remains a mild but efficient razor when paired with a good sharp blade.
I'm not sure of the cost of this razor but in performance I'd compare it to the Edwin Jagger de86 which I suspect is available at a much less cost.
A mild razor is good for newbies and also worth having in your collection for the day's when your face needs a rest from more aggressive shaves but as I said above this need can be met by my de86 or one of my techs or even dialling down one of my favourite Gillette adjustables.
Call me old fashioned but vintage razors are my favourites
Thanks for the update, didn't even know you had it yetI’ve had two shaved with this now, yesterday with the SB side and this morning the OC.
I used a NOS Personna Super Platinum Chrome and Oatcakes Lavender soap.
As it’s been said it’s a very mild razor and I was quite underwhelmed by the SB side. 3 passes and I wasn’t as smooth as my regular 6S on a 2 plate manages. Incredibly smooth to shave with though.
The OC shave this morning I found more efficient and had a very enjoyable and smooth shave. The result was better than yesterday but still not BBS anywhere.
Only the tiniest amount of feedback on my neck from the alum block this morning and no irritation or even the hint of a nick.
I’ve only used a Feather blade once, I think in my Merkur 34C? and it was a blood bath but I’ll dig one out to try in this and report back.
You're welcome, I agree entirely.I’m ready to pass this on to the next bloke now.
In summary, lovely smooth shaver even with a Feather.
I’m glad to have been given the opportunity to try, thanks Dr W, but I won’t be forking out 40 ish quid for one.
