Great to see you happy with your new purchase of a streamline, nothing better than a happy camper.It arrived. I opened the box, admired its stunning beauty and craftsmanship (best razor I've ever had the pleasure of holding in my hand - this thing is sexy!), loaded a PTFE blade and started shaving.
I was nervous as I had read on here and other threads that the Streamline was aggressive. Well you can see the blade (a lot of it) certainly feel the blade (a lot), and you can most definitely HEAR the blade (purrs like an MG Spitfire)…...but.
OMG. Smoothest, most efficient, safest and most pleasurable shave I have ever had. Period. BBS in less than 2 passes (the 2nd pass was half pass half touch-up).
Comparing it to other SE's:
AC razors that I have tried (Vector, Mongoose, ATT SE1,) Streamline is smoother and more efficient, and WAY more fun to use.
GEM's that I have tried (Clog Pruf, Bullet Tip, G-Bar, Featherweight) - Streamline is smoother and more efficient, and WAY more fun to use.
Injectors that I have tried (Type E, Type G, Type I and Type L) - Streamline is smoother and more efficient, and WAY more fun to use.
I have a GEM Junior, Schick Type I Eversharp and a GEM MMOC on the way, and will test those out - but they will have to be otherworldly to beat out the Streamline. Big, MASSIVE new fan here. Ive just switched over from DE shaving, where the Gillette Aristocrat #21 was the most beautiful and best razor I have ever used/owned. It now has an equal.
Oh, and did I say it was beautiful...…..
