I’m at ten and it feels like new.Posted elsewhere that I’m at 14 shaves with the KCG blade in my Super 84. Just an awesome blade and feels as smooth as day 1. If you like the vintage Platinum Plus made in the US, you’ll love this. I’ll let everyone know when I feel that first tug, hasn’t happened yet.
I think the left over space for the Tech tooling got taken up about 40 years ago.I have one of these and my impression was that it mild the handle is slippery. I wonder why they didn't just dust off the tooling from the Tech razors and start making them again or have them made somewhere...
There is no tooling of the old era.I have one of these and my impression was that it mild the handle is slippery. I wonder why they didn't just dust off the tooling from the Tech razors and start making them again or have them made somewhere...
What we perceive as friction has a major influence on how we evaluate any surface. In actuality, the coefficient of friction increases when our fingers come into contact with a smooth surface that is impermeable, such as with a chrome surface. Friction actually decreases for a porous surface. With regard to our fingers (Dermal Ridges), friction will increase with the introduction of water on a very smooth, impermeable surface.Well, I’ve shaved with mine 3 times now. I think it’s probably about the same, maybe very slightly more aggressive than my DE89 but that could just be because of the weight difference playing tricks on me.
What I will say about it is that there are some razors in the collection I won’t do a third pass on my neck with but I will do a third pass with the King C.
I like it.
Believe it or not, this “Jack the Barber” Bevel clone handle feels like I’m holding something wrapped in grip tape when its wet. When dry, not so much. Off topic, but a great little $9 razor that feels like I’m shaving with my Timeless 95. A very aggressive clone.
