Your point is valid adjustable have a place, many historical or vintage available for fair price.I am new to wet shaving and have been asking others on this board for suggestions and help and have been very pleasantly surprised by the response. My question on this thread and, I guess, in general, is that with all the comments about changing plates for a shave to achieve greater aggression or lesser aggression, why wouldn't you just buy a top of the line adjustable? I am sure this is a stupid question to some, but I really am curious why?
Then you gave modern adjustable under 100.00, that msny people live.
Last you have the high dollar adjustable, that start at 200 bucks plus.
Think if I wanted to try an adjustable, would put want to buy in forum, or hit eBay for a Gillette Slim. Slims advantage is changing aggressiveness on the run, by just turn knob.
Also you can adjust shave with blade switching until you find Grail Blade.
Last you got Shavers like Rockwell with extra heads, so they are ch as ngrable.
