Yup. While I haven't and won't try all the modern razors that most here are on about, a razor's shave speaks for itself. If one gets an easy BBS shave with a Tech, Super Speed, NEW, 195, Slim, etc. and it's repeatable every time, a modern razor can do no better. What I find in the modern razors I own is that they are beautifully made. Three of mine are 316 SS steel. Outstanding razors but the end result is simply no better than my vintage Gillettes.Used my copper Aristocrat this morning as I haven't used it in a while. What a great shave. Definitely need to use this razor more often. It hangs with my top performers for close, comfortable shaves. Hard to beat a classic.
