    Lupo stainless?

    I must say that particular Ladas wasn't impressive, although it fared much better in the tight clamping of the Lupo than it did in my Blackbird OC. I have a sampler pack inbound that IIRC contains some Feathers and Kais, so looking forward to more learning.

    Lupo stainless?

    Four days growth mowed down this morning. I actually intended to use my Blackbird, and put a brand new Ladas blade in; before the first pass (WTG) was completed, I put it away for my Lupo DC with a 3rd use Voskhod, using the 95 side. The Blackbird was tugging very uncomfortably and the Lupo...

    Lupo stainless?

    I had the same initial impression of the 72OC side, especially compared to my Blackbird OC, which is just a superb feeling razor. I've since very much gotten used to the 72OC side and have grown to really appreciate having the dual option all in one hand. I definitely use the 95 side more, but...

    Lupo stainless?

    Two days in a row now for this combo, and today's was most excellent. I am growing more and more fond of the versatility of the DC head. Handy when I want to tailor the razor's characteristics to the various areas of my face & neck.

    Lupo stainless?

    Indeed, but there are practically no other options in local brick-n-mortar stores.

    Lupo stainless?

    Limited options in mine thus far, but the King C Gillette has been the best, with Astra's very close too. I gotta' order a sampler soon... And after some thought, I'm thinking "LuPack" works. :c2:

    Interesting... So what say you WolfPack? What takes your Lupo to the highest levels (blade)?

    Lupo II DC this morning with a 3rd use Astra, 2 days growth. I feel like I may have to go thru puberty again. :001_smile

    For me and my face + "skill" level: Lupo2 DC = Blackland Blackbird OC

    Lupo stainless?

    Casual shave today with a brand new King C Gillette in my Lupo2 DC. Superb result. Went .95 WTG, then .72OC ATG and finished with .95 XTG and minor neck pickups with .72OC.

    Lupo stainless?

    The shave lasted all thru the day, and the next day I had just enough to shave 1 pass plus cleanups. Two more repetitions of this cycle, and I've finally conquered my winter skin. Loving my LUPO II DC.

    Lupo stainless?

    Tried something a bit different today, and I LIKED it. 3 day growth; warm shower prior; Shave Secret oil as preshave; aerosol shave gel (Walmart Equate) - none of that unprecedented. What was different is I only shaved with the grain, particularly with the .95SB side. First pass WTG with...

    Lupo stainless?

    I keep seeing this take from others, and agree the Blackbird (OC in my case) is a tremendous razor. I just am not getting better shaves from it than the Lupo II DC. And I get noticeably better shaves out of my Lupo than the Timeless 95 I used to own. I may be odd man out in this one, but the...

    Lupo stainless?

    Ran the .95 side today on 3 days growth - my face needed a couple healing days from this arctic weather Ohio has seen lately. Super shave, on a new King C Gillette and Nivea sensitive skin cream, with Shave Secret as a prep. This really is a great razor IMHO.
