    Underrated Blades... What are yours?

    Another vote for the Rapira Super Stainless for sharpness and Rapira Swedish Supersteel for smoothness. A really underrated blade (and a very obscure one at that) is Champion, a very smooth blade, almost on the level of Voskhod, made by the same company that makes the world-renowned dreadful...

    Worlds Finest Safety Razor | Overview | First Shave Report

    To me the comb looks very similar to what you would find on an R41, just more subdued.

    What Shaving gear have you “Stocked up on”?

    What have I "really" stocked upon? Blades (over 4000, closer actually to 5000) and arguably, razors.

    Any experience with Super-Max blades?

    Here are my experiences : SuperMax Blue Diamond Platinum-very aggressive, harsh blades. If you can handle Shark Super Chrome, Feather or Kai you should have no issue with these. For me they only work for the first shaves in a very mild razor. Once they mellow out they can be used without a care...

    AS routine - which one comes first splash or balm?

    Splash then balm. But only in the autumn or winter, when the skin gets dry. Otherwise, just splash. The alcohol aftershaves dry the skin, so I apply those first and then the balm after several minutes. On rare occasions I will apply just balm if the skin is very irritated and itchy. But that...

    First Shave with a 1930 Gillette New Long Comb

    I like the look and feel of the razor. Very well designed. I recently got one and was not disappointed. Though I tried it with a Gillette Platinum. I wouldn't try with a Feather except if I had a large growth.

    Feather Popular Razor

    I personally like it. Affordable, butterfly opening and it tones down sharp blades just so that you can obtain a smooth, blood-free shave.

    Razor Identification. NEW?

    The only information I can give is that it is a long comb. The short comb has shorter, pointier teeth that are straight instead of curling downwards.
