In Mid-August I received a 1958 Flare Tip. It’s my second razor acquisition since I started shaving with a DE, specifically a Rockwell 2C (plate 3) a year and a few months ago. My first shave caused me serious razor burn, but thanks to the good folks here with that pointers, I honed in the technique and I absolutely love this razor. I have to be much more careful and light the with my technique, however I find this to be a very smooth and efficient razor. I can more easily get under my nose and save my neck more efficiently and closely (note I rarely go against the grain). In fact my last shave with a PolSilver blade was close and efficient and I had little burn from the alum. Is it normal to reject my first razor, for the new one on the shelf? Because I have zero desire to shave with the Rockwell since I’ve learned how to use the Gillette Slim. Or am I finding what works best for me? Also, I assume the blades I liked in the Rockwell may not be the ones I favor in the Gillette. Can anyone confirm? (I’ve only used 2 blades, a Gillette Wilkinson Sword and most rectbku a PolSilver) Also, getting this razor makes me want to acquire a Gillette Tech and a Schick Krona for starters.
