Quality vintage razors didn't need some click to hold the blade, new stuff will never catch up to proper vintage brass razors. It's like the blues, the best stuff comes from dead guys.It's the future Toby. The combination of that blade click and space age materials is what separates the vintage from the new
Stick with it Mike, remember also you are using a weghted razor with a shorter handle.Well had another shave with the rex
couldn’t help myself
initially i was going to leave it until tomorrow then i decided to change my blade to the feather
then i couldn’t wait.
This time iv changed the blade to a Voskhod, and armed with some Ariana & Evans Asian pear i went for it. Number 1 setting only and 100% a better shave.
still not perfect, still a few weepers but still 100% better than the day before.
If i was being honest i don’t think my face was ready for a shave after the scalping i gave myself yesterday lol but what the hell your only young once
Great advice i’ll give it a go,Stick with it Mike, remember also you are using a weghted razor with a shorter handle.
Try riding the cap and teaching yourself the new shave angle, start just off the blade and smoothly drop the handle in small increments until cutting stubble, this will allow your eye - hand co-ordination dial in for the different geometry.
I change my razors out a lot and do this as a matter of course for the first strokes, muscle memory then takes over.
You can make the most aggressive razors behave themselves doing this.
I dont think the REX is an aggressive razor you just need to familiarise yourself with a new shave angle. I am sure in a week or so you will be singing the "KING OF RAZORS' the praise it deserves.
