So yesterday I decided to give the Canadian 1932 Tech razor another go. Just put a Red Personna in the razor, didn't use a brush, just canned shaving cream. I had to do three passes plus some touch up and I got a closer shave than with my Merkur HD. Mind you, I stretched my skin tight while I was doing ATG. Result, very good shave with no irritation. I think it shaved better than last because the blade probably suites the razor better than others and stretching the skin probably helped get a better shave. A couple of things that I like about the tech is: simple design, made very well and they are dirt cheap and plentiful. I run into lots of these razors in shops and flea markets. Saw a mint set a year ago with a soft folding case, but they wanted $45. I think it was one of those razors issued to G.I.'s during WWII. It didn't have a hard case, it was more of a canvas green cloth case.
