that's weird. The aluminum lupo is a pretty efficient shaver for me and I shave every 6 or 7 days. I also have the razorock lupo .95. that is an efficient razor as well. I pulled the trigger on the razorock bbs as. should be getting it today. I did not plan on getting another razor, but I saw the bbs as was available for 70 dollars (free shipping) and had to jump on it.I'm interested in the BBS - AS razor. I had the aluminum BBS and enjoyed it but it lacked a bit of efficiency. I think the bit of blade gap will help.
