I really like razors that bend the blade a lot. That’s why I love the Bird.
It’s interesting how shaving is so subjective. I like the Bird because the blade feel. I don’t like blade chatter but I like to feel where the blade is cutting. I also have a Wolfman WR2 1.25 and I like the Bird more. One feels like a luxury sedan and the other a beautiful sports car.
People talk a lot about the Bird as a blade forwarder razor but this razor is very smooth. One of the best in the industry.
Steep is THE way!!!
I prefer steep angle as well, but I think I went too steep and while the results were still very good, I think the razor can do at least a little bit better once I maintain the optimal angle.
