The Gillette AJ is a lovely razor - a little more aggressive (blade feel) than the flat bottom tech but man oh man is it a smooth razor. I really enjoyed it and think it gives a closer shave than the Tech. The handle on this one makes for a nice, nimble razor. Paired with great NO products, this was a fine shave.

Turkish Thursday.

Another early morning cold water wet shave.

Last use of the silver star super stainless blade has performed with efficient smoothness throughout the week, and feels as though i could get another 2 shaves from it.

Like all my other chinese super-speed clones the weishi/yintal 9306-i, has gave me consistantly dfs/near bbs comfortable irritation-free shaves with each outing..What more can i ask for.

Another very comfortable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Arko ~ Cool ASB.

My face is feeling smooth & smelling divine.;)

Stay safe, and enjoy your Day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

Bastardised? I got the impression the only handle it would fit was there own. There is either some skulduggery going on here, or you are in cahoots with the devil

The handle is less than a hair width larger than the hole so a nylon washer provides the surface for it to mate with on the head. Fortunately there's enough thread for it to grip even with this in place.
