200 guys have just had heart attacks, that you could even have suggested restraint around these parts!! :)

Can you pop me on the list as well please?

Cheers, John
My supply of various SE blades is a bit more generous and I get way more shaves out of each of them. I guess I have blades for the next 15 years. I might still buy a few hundred more GEM blades just in case they stop making them.
You're on the list and your SIM PIF is in the post.

A mini revelation, just when you think it can't get any better with the Krona I took your advice about a Feather blade kindly donated by Paul aka Blademonkey .
What a sublime shave! Two days now and must I say this blade is probably the best blade I used in the Krona. Its a crap rough thing in anything else I ever used it but in Krona its precision and smoothnrss masterpiece. Give it a try.

The dethroned GSB is crying to his lather bowl in the corner.

I had some more shaves with the Schick Krona, the above mentioned Feather and a Voskhod blade.
All were extremely good shaves. The Schick Krona looks good, handles well, it's TTO (which is cool - I'm easy to please) and gives great shaves.
It's a razor I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a classy razor that won't break the
bank - with a bit of luck and patience you could pick one up for 20 quid.
The razor is now on its way to @Glen_Lee .

My first shaving experience with the Krona. Firstly, I was surprised by the weight and how solid a razor it is. I always assumed from looking at the photogrpahs, that it was more plastic in nature. Paired with a Polsilver on it's second use, Truefitt & Hill Sandalwood cream - I went for it.

Having only used a Schick Type E injector, and lately a Gillette Tech for the last 12-18 months; it took a little while to get used to the size and weight of the razor. However, it is a lovely shave. Nice & smooth. Looks great. The handle & grip is particularly good. Never used a TTO before, so 10/10 for novelty value ;) Over the next few days, going to try different blades to enjoy any variation in shaves.

Pretty much exclusively use a straight now from starting out with DE.

The only DE razors that get a look-in now are my Timeless, FatBoy, Krona & Eclipse red-ring.

The Krona is a great shave, deceptively efficient. I tend to pair with GSB or Polsilver.
It's a bit like the red-ring, totally fuss free, rinse after the 1st pass & TBH you could stop there.
