What's a half-incher like to use Russ? I have had my eye on a nice vintage one, but had a feeling it would feel skittery and fiddly in action. I figure the sweet spot is between 5-7/8?
It actually shaves very nicely there is a little bit of weight to this one. Very agile and great around the contours and hollows of the my neck.

I think in certain parts of Europe they were very popular , in fact i believe when the idea of some of the bigger razors was presented to the grinders at Heljestrand for their MK series , there was almost a revolt as the grinders couldn't imagine why anyone would want such large razors.

Or that is how the story goes anyhow.
