Well, whore no more as IMHO despite being pieces of incredible machining and as solid as a bank vault door these in essence really do not shave me in the end any better than my beloved post-war Tech. I will sell these shortly.

I saw on the ATG Forum where a poster who has had several of the vaunted Wolfman razors state that he had moved them all on down the road as they shaved no better than his RazoRock Game Changer. Well, I have a .68 Game Changer head and IMHO it is a marvelous instrument, but at the end of the day the resultant shave is no better than that of the lowly Tech. My brief bout with artisan SS RAD is hereby cured. It's all in the right gap and blade exposure to make the right fit for your face and not in the material(s) used nor any other gimmickry.

You've satisfied your curiosity which is good. I'm sure you also had fun testing the other razors as well. You've reached nirvana - you know what works for you and enjoy it so. Good man!

This realisation may be a fortuous one for your pockets, but a sad day for Texas businessmen. :(

Nonetheless, I actually really enjoyed reading your insights into the world of SS razors and it was good to find out the RR offerings provide good shaves. FWIW, even if I myself wouldn't pursue such an avenue the choice exists, IMO it's very important for there to be a range of options.

Like yourself I've found my humble collection of Techs to be be sufficient for my needs (and taste in blades), especially for daily shaving.
