Still prefer using the VB Chieftain Jr over the Winning razor (have a Yaqi DOC and a Rockwell 6C on the way). I'm really liking the VB Chieftain with a Voskhod blade and a single pass to help deter irritation. Today I used a new Astra SP and all I can say is WOW! Definitely as good as or better than the Voskhod for me. I went with two passes, both WTG and felt like I had a great shave! Still learning, but the #1 thing I've learned so far is to take your time and focus on shaving with zero pressure. Things are getting fun!
