Razorock Lupo .58

Not sure exactly what you are looking for, but if low blade feel - high efficiency is on your list, I would be remiss not mention the Start 2 with 0.90 plate I used yesterday, I even mentioned the Lupos there.
Superbly smooth, efficient, while virtually "impossible" to nick yourself. Only downside is it's a bit hard to get hold of these days.
It's impossible to get one unless you find a used one. I emailed them and they said they had no idea when they'd be able to ship again to the US.
 
I decided to answer this scientifically… I bought a used GC and a new Lupo… :)
Good for you. Sounds like a good compromise buying both as you did. In the end, whichever you don't like, you sell!
But maybe you like both! (I've had that happen), Lol!!

Well. I got a Lupo .58 and it’s still too much blade. I just don’t like razors with positive blade exposure. And the Game Changer .68 drives me crazy with those blade posts on the plate.

So, I’ve got the Lupo on the BST to trade for a BBS!

So many razors, so little time!!
Well I did say it still feels like a Lupo, so I'm not surprised it wasn't potentially a good fit.

I have the BBS too, it's very different from the Lupo. Doubt you'll have a problem with it, it's a great razor.

Still, my two recommendations would be the Era Lvl 4 and ATT Windsor Pro 90SB, both superbly smooth and around the same price. Both have less blade feel than the 58.

Sure, but you know the sayings about opinions, right?

I have to try a razor to know. Reading about, and discussing, razors is for fun.

I’ve got a straight trade for a Mamba .70, so I think I’ll give that a spin first.

After that, I may give the BBS a try…
 
I have both Mambas and prefer the 70. I have all the Game Changer’s and prefer the 68OC. I have the Lupo 58 and 72 and enjoy them both. I agree the Lupo’s have blade feel that can be off-putting but I still use them often. I use a lightweight handle with the 72 so not to cut my face. The 58 can be used with heavier handles without worry. With the Lupo 58 I have to feel around my face to make sure to get all the stubble. Not sure which I prefer but lately I have been swapping between the Lupo 58 and Game Changer 68OC and they’ve been a pleasure. They feel different but provide a nice (enough) shave. Mamba and BBS have more of a curved blade design that can cut my skin - even tho they are mild razors. The one razor I have that shaves very close without positive blade feel is the Tatara Masamune. I have both heads (straight bar and open comb) - which shaves similarly to the Lupo 58 and Game Changer 68OC.
 
Love the .58. Don’t really like the .72, seems to always give me some kind of irritation. .95 is also good for me but again, can easily get some nicks. I don’t think the blade exposure changes at all as the plates increase. For me, smaller gaps work best for me for daily shaves.
 
If you are a fan of RazoRock razors, I can recommend the BBS. I prefer mild-medium razors and the BBS is one of my favorites. The cap has more curvature and seems to stabilize the blade better which prevents blade chatter while shaving.

Hi, thanks for that. I have a BBS cap/plate coming. Traded my GC68 for it. Really looking forward to trying it!

I own a GC .68 & .84 & love using both heads with no issues. Blade feel wise it is safe to assume the .58 Lupo has more blade feel than the GC .68? I've been tempted to buy a .72 Lupo but I'm also considering a standard BBS.

Thanks,
Bill

Hi,

Yeah, I’ve had a Kai blade get stuck on the GC plate several times and it was a bit dangerous to get off. It’s less of an issue with the Mamba plates (and I’m assuming the BBS) as those plates have a pronounced curve. (This is not my photo, but of another person that had an issue with blades getting stuck on the GC). GC on the right, Mamba on the left.

I think all of the Lupos have the same blade exposure, they only vary in gap (at least that’s how the .58, .72, and DC I’ve have felt).

I have a BBS plate arriving today, so I’ll give it a spin tonight.

I would say the GC 68OC has less blade feel than the Lupo 58 and certainly less than the Lupo 72 (which I only use with a lightweight handle to make it safer for my face). The GC 68OC and Lupo 58 have been my recent go to razors. Different feeling in the hand and on the face. Difficult for me to decide which is better because for me, they are both great.

I just shaved last night, for the first time, with the BBS. I think I like it better than all of the others I’ve mentioned. A bit tough around the nose with that seriously radiused head. Going to sell the two Mambas I think.
