I received mine today and plan on trying it out later this week. The fit and finish looks excellent and the weight balance is fine for me. The plating on the head and handle of mine match, and the case is well constructed. This Gillette razor has exceeded my expectations.
I bought the GC .68 and also purchased the .84 base plate.
I find the .68 to be similar to a Gillette slim set on 3-4. It’s a smooth, close and comfortable shave. Very nice!
The .84 is more like the slim set on 7. It‘s a similar shave to what I get on a Gillette red tip. The .84 is not...
I usually get seven to ten shaves from one DE blade. At that rate, I use at most 50 blades in a year. Assuming that I’ve paid $10 for a 100 pack of Astra or Personna blades, then I’ve used no more than $5 worth of blades in one year.
I think it’s easier to let the negatives in this world get us down than it is to focus on the blessings all around us.
Sometimes you just have to block the bad things out of your mind and focus on the good things God has given us.
