I've been here over three years now, and the Tech is still my favorite razor. It shaves easily and it is kind to my sensitive skin. :)

Enjoy your Super Speed!

I've shaved yesterday with a ' 71 black-handle superspeed loaded with a 7'o clock yellow for the first time. I was quite impressed, mainly because is not a heavy razor and is easy to make fast, short strokes which agreed with my skin.
Looking forward to the next shaves
