Last week I found an English flare tipped Rocked at the market place. The guy also had the double ring Rocked but I only bought the flared tip Rocked by analyzing the scientific data of flipping the coin.
Today after I cleaned it and disinfected I shaved with it. WOW!
Over the last month I shave with my Progress dialed at 2.5 or with my #11C. Always the shave was something like a surgery. Required much attention and had a lot of blood.
Not so today. I used proraso soap and US personas. A combination guaranteed to give me a lot of dragging and pain. After the first pass I got really impatient and went very "M3 style" XTG on my face. No blood. The third pass was a cruel ATG. The result was 2 nicks left and right of my mouth and 1 nick under my chin. 5 or 6 less than the other times. As an added bonus I had no razor burn in my neck. The shave is not exactly BBS but it is a very good shave
The restoration of the razor was not even close to the photos I have seen here but heck, the razor works, and works very well.
I think I have found my hurry up razor. Or maybe my love razor. Who knows. I still like very much the Progress and I want to learn to use it as easy as my Rocket but for now I found my M3 replacement
