    Wouldn't say it's all that agressive

    I haven't shaved with an R41,but can say neither side of the OSS is as aggressive as a Gillette OLD.Although the OC side looks much like a Gillette Long Comb New,the shave is much more efficient yet smoother.The closed comb side is less agressive than a Weber but the results are quite good with even less irritation.What I really like about the CC side is the razor angle required to hit the "sweet spot" is surprisingly shallow.

    Futur, Ej89, President , 58SS, then back around. But that Futur pretty much is a kill joy as it leaves very little stubble 24 hrs later:)

    The only time that I THOUGHT had been a loan of a Fat Boy stuck in my head as having been a "short" razor similar to a Super Speed, but that picture seems to reveal a very close handle length comparison between a Slim and a fat Boy (Glen was my brother in law in the 1970s). Maybe I'd already transitioned to the Super Adjustable at the time, or else he loaned me something different that did have a shortish, fattish handle . .

    Meanwhile, I only recently ended up with a sizable number of old razors I might want to create order from chaos with, and assign each one its own day of the week. But not yet. Chaos still reigns, no order, just whimsy.

    Single Edge Razors
    G-Bar
    Open Comb MM (thanks Arley)
    Schick Adjustable

    DE Razors
    iKon S3S
    iKon OSS

    Gillette New SC
    Gillette Tech
    Old Type
    EJ DE89 Barley
    Merkur 1904
    Merkur 37C **can't believe I forgot this one**

    The den will probably be culled down more soon enough as well.

    I use one DE razor for as long as the blade feels good and then go on to the next. I generally alternate between a DE razor and then a SE razor.

    My current rotation includes a Gillette New, Gillette Tech, Edwin Jagger 89 and a Parker 60R. The Ikon razor posted above looks like an amazing piece of kit, I may yet have to add one to my rotation!!

    Ooh, blantyre, I was mentioning to my wife just yesterday that we need something EXACTLY like that!! Did you make it, or purchase that shelf? If purchased, what is it?
