This morning was my first shave with a Le Grelot. Paul (Easttexasman) let me borrow it. I mush say it is one smooth shaver. 1/4 hollow shoulderless, and one tough blade! I really enjoyed it. It needs some touching up so i am going to put it on the La veinette. I let him borrow my Puma, and I think he liked it due to his WTB thread in the BST lol.
The major breakthrough for me has been pressure, and how much better the razor shaves when it is as minimal as possible. I don't go for BBS, I am just enjoying the ride. I figure if I am going to get to a BBS it will come, I don't need to chase it.
Despite needing a touch up, the Le Grelot still gave me a DFS! Can't wait to see what it is like with a fresh edge.
Just because it's sharp, does not mean it's smooth.
