Pass Around: Schick Krona TTO

Messages

Thank you to @Steve Bowles & @riverrun for this pass around. The Krona is boxed and ready for the next shaver.

I've enjoyed using the Krona. Having tried Polsiver & Astra blades - for me, I enjoyed the shaves more when paired with the Astra.

Fantastic form factor, and certainly a razor I've hoped to try for a long while. For some reason I had difficulty manoeuvring the head/getting the right asngle. With a bit more practice, probably would have been absolutely fine.

Lovely razor, and I would recommend anyone considering this razor to join the list!

I hauled a Krona out today, and used it with a green Astra Platinum.

I've always thought it was very under-rated, and it never ceases to surprise and please me when I use it.

A good thing that, a few years ago, I decided to try to collect all the variations, so I now have a modest selection to choose from. As far as I can judge, the differences are mostly in looks i.e. inscriptions, colours, etc., and they all shave about the same (depending, of course, on the blade used).

The Krona landed safely with me today. I look forward to giving it a spin tomorrow morning.
Thanks, Barry.

First shave with the Krona this morning and it was a cracker. I have been fortunate enough to use 7 or 8 razors from the lending pool in my relatively short time on TSR and ATG. Of those razors I instantly fell in love with 2. The Fatboy and the Brass General. Of course I had to track down and buy these. The Krona is up there with those two. I like the way it looks and it feels perfect in the hand. It is comparable with a Gillette Tech in terms of mildness. But I would say it’s a touch more efficient. Paired with a Gillette Silver Blue I was pretty much BB smooth after two very comfortable passes. Just minor touch ups required. I’m mighty impressed.

I have had a further two shaves with the Krona using a Gillette Silver Blue and I continue to be mightily impressed. There is hardly any blade feel at all but the razor is very efficient. It's a joy to use. I will have a couple more shaves with a different blade and then pass it on.

I have been a little reluctant to use a Feather blade since my early days of traditional shaving, but I thought I would give one a go in the Krona. And two excellent shaves were had. Once again, I was most impressed by both the comfort of the shave, and with the razors efficiency. I like the Schick Krona a lot!

Thanks to @Steve Bowles for making the razor available, and to @riverrun for organising the pass around.
I will post the razor on to @Bikerjohn tomorrow morning.
