I'm on the hunt for a New Deluxe.My NEW Deluxe loaded with a Feather is very smooth and efficient!
Of the razors I own, many deliver a smooth shave when my technique is good & I have the proper blade loaded, & I use a good soap & lather it properly. The razors that will deliver a smooth shave when the above has been met are:
Prewar Fat Handle Tech
British Flat Bottom Fat Handle Tech
Canadian Fat Handle Tech
Shick E1 injector
Shick G1 injector
