Ever had a Razor that you didn't like, then one day it just Clicks? Smooth shaving.
Wow. Anyone here ever had a razor they recently bought and tried out a couple times. Switched blades around... but could never get a pleasant shave from? Then one day you return to it and everything falls into place? You find how the razor likes to be handled?
That happened to me today. With my Super Speed. I didn't seem to like my baseline blades that I depend on the most. Sharp Stainless. So I switched to Derby Extra. Eh... a little better but not all that great. It still would nick me in area's I never had a problem with before. Both blades are very gentle in all my other razors.
Today I just had one of the smoothest shaves I've ever had. Not THE Smoothest... but it was so pleasant I just kept attacking those touch up spots. Not one single nick or cut! I still prefer other razors... but now I feel that I can work with this one now. And improve with it.
Mine is an unpainted Super Speed Flare tip from 1966 in its case. I'm not getting rid of this little guy now!
