I started with a Merkur 34C which, with my terrible technique, really chewed up my face. Feather AS-D2 was night and day, but the Colonial General in stainless is the one for me. AC razors are the way! Haven’t tried GEMs though which I’ve heard are as good.
If I were them I’d be pumping those things out, they’re missing out on a lot of sales.
Wonder if they’ll take any of the innovation from the Vector and try to make The General less bulky. Eagerly awaiting the V2.
I was shocked when I saw the Simpson lineup in person by how small most of the brushes are. Even the Chubby 1 is smaller than I thought I would’ve been OK with but find it perfect.
Also there’s a large jump when going for the Chubby 2 which I found too large, and the Chubby 3 which in Pure I...
My thoughts exactly.
I wouldn’t shave if I didn’t have any, but eventually stopped using it. I wonder if switching to “better” soaps/creams also made it unnecessary. Last but not least, I switched to an SE so kinda tough for me to point to one factor.
I have a black hawk v2 and a stainless steel General, which I’ve heard is very similar to the ATT.
The weight of the black hawk didn’t work for me and the General might be the last razor I ever buy. Big difference to me in weight which I liked but if you like the black hawk you may not like.
