    Default Schick Krona anyone?

    I just had one of the gentlest shaves that I can remember and it came from one of my old Schick Kronas. I had tried it last year with some sorry blades (house brand) that I had bought at Walgreens for a whopping $8/10 and it, or perhaps I should lay the blame where it belongs on the blade, nearly butchered my face and that's the only time I can remember that ever happening. At any rate, I put a Feather in the Krona this evening not expecting too much out of it and it just seemed to sing. A very smooth and close respectable shave indeed.

    My first DE, bought it at a Rexall Drug store in 1969.

    I still have one and it shaves a lot like a Super Speed for me.

    Very nice DE for sure! I like mine and probably need to use it more.

    Schick Krona, the usung hero. I've said it before I'll say it again, if Kronas had a metal handle they'd be as popular or more than a Super Speed.
    Very smooth and effective. I love the low profile of the head and it works well with most blades.

    It is my go to razor, the one I try new blades in, the one I use on date night, especially with a Feather.

    Every collector/DE user should have 1. I have the Eversharp Eagle version. Sweet, unsung razor!

    Schick Krona is one fine mild razor. It's one that everybody should try.

    Oblique Human should be getting mine soon, it is available for loan when he gets done, there just wasn't much interest. http://badgerandblade.com/vb/showthr...ass-Around-PIF Still open.

    I have my grandfather's pre-Krona. A DFS every time. I like that razor so much that I bought another on the 'Bay to give to my son as his first DE.

    I have the one with metalknob. At this moment a co-worker use my razor. A mild "superspeedish" razor.

    It was my first razor back in the 1970'ies, and is in my regular rotation. A very nice and, unfortunately, overlooked razor.

    The one I'm using has a metal knob as well but I know I have several of these with the black knob around here somewhere. I'll see if I can't dig them up.

    Very under rated razor. Has a nice long handle compared to most gillettes.

    Without a doubt, it's one of the easiest razors for learners, and possibly the most effective mild shaver in my collection. I haven't reached for it in quite some time now, but this thread will prompt me to dust it off for another round.

    Found a gold one in a pile my dad gave me the other day. Metal knob, looks sweet.
