Ron, re:Fine Vetiver, you have such a good memory! The Desert Vetiver is a very unique scent. There is vetiver in the base, but there are other components that are a bit sharper than vetiver ( Elemi, Incense, Orange and Artemisia ) that is very pleasant and not floral. It is tied for my #1 scent position with Creed Original Vetiver, Fine placing a very close #2.I like Vetiver scented shave products, how do you like the SV desert Vetiver? I believe you liked "Fine" Vetiver when they quite making it in AS and you bought some up for stocking. I enjoy the Fine Vetiver After shave myself very much, I mix it with some witch hazel and use it then in a 50ml glass mister & seems just right and lasts a long time that way.
I know. In part it's a reflection of how much I like my Alpha Outlaw DE, so I thought I'd reward Steve with my continuing support and give the format one last shot (he says). Now I like Shane's work too but the cost of entry for the Vector remains a little rich for me.
I'd go with the Vector if I could figure out an angle or strategy to manage that back of the head issue with the wide AC blade. I'm sure I'd appreciate the Vector's handling but it's still a wide blade with inherent limits.The Vector’s higher cost is a bigger risk, but they seem easy to move on with less depreciation if sold after Shane’s 30 Day return policy. At the same time, it seems no one can unseat GE Jones and Stahly from the ranking for you
Don't let the looks fool you. The MMOC is not the mildest Gem, but it's not a mad-dog shredder either. It's not my favourite razor but that's more ergonomics than anything. I like a little longer handle and a touch more mass. It's especially nice after you've got a couple of shaves on the blade.It actually had me scared, looking sort of creepy, in a Halloween movie sort of way!
