A couple weeks ago I was doing a little shopping on Amazon and saw this come up on suggestions. I wasn't searching for razors but I suppose it was suggested because a while back I was searching and thinking about buying Wilkinson Sword blades. I know I looked at this and other VB razors before but passed as I have a number of razors already that hardly get used because my Slim is my number one and my Fatboy is a close second. My SS, New short OC, Krona, Tech, 34c, VDH TTO, Wilkinson Sword, Schick J1 and the Parker Adjustable Injector all very rarely get used. But for some reason when I saw this again on Amazon I couldn't pass it up. I do like the looks of it. Not that fond of the two different safety bars, would have preferred scalloped or grooved on both sides so not sure how if there is a felt difference. Seems solid enough, quality looks decent, heavy feel which is a plus. The adjustable mechanism doesn't feel smooth, like a grinding feeling while turning, with the door slightly ajar, and the cap on the bottom of the handle looks a little mangled. But overall looks like a nice razor. Tomorrow it will get a test drive on setting around 5 to start, maybe 6 and see how it compares to my Slim on setting 7.
