Re: Razorock Mission vs PPA DOC

Dave, first off welcome aboard If your technique is good and you are getting good shaves with your Razorock, for an open comb you might want to consider the Muhle R41 razor.

Re: razor aggressiveness help

First off Jedi, love the avatar choice... fits your nickname perfectly as far as blade choice just save the Nacets and feathers for later shaves, since you are using a Progress just dial it down low and use any blade and work on your technique and dial the razor up as your shaves improve.

Re: Also new to this forum

That is everyone's biggest (shaving related) fear, the dreaded reformulation or discontinuation, that is why we all sit on a double lifetime stockpile of the products we all love and cannot figuratively live without :P

Re: *made in england* Wilkenson sword blades

Thanks Murray, Yes I do remember when everyone wanted those Englishs made wilks but I never got any. The Wilkensons I did get were made in Germany and had a gold colored "5" on the front cover card in an all white package, I was not too impressed with them at the time and I haven't shaved with Wilks...
