Perfect description!! I did shave two today with a new Gillette Platinum Plus (Brazil) and Omega shave soap. This razor is "tricking" me with the head & handle. I thought about putting a "fat" Tech handle on it and may do that later on to help figure this DE out. It sort of feels more aggressive than it really is, if that makes sense. Or is it?Tucker wrote:Well, I had my second shave with the Razorock Teck II this AM. I lathered up with J.M. Fraser's Original and my Fine 20mm Angel Hair Synthetic Brush. The razor performed flawlessly on my 24 hour stubble. The head puts quite a curve on the blade compared to any Gillette Tech that I've seen. It navigates the curve of my jawline with ease. I'm still getting used to the long bulbous handle. I find myself holding it by the neck, and letting the thicker part hang in my hand as a weight. I think that there are probably better handle choices out there for me, and I will experiment which is the beauty of a three piece razor.
I would rate the aggression as a 4 on a Gillette Slim Adjustable, or right between a Regular 1950's Superspeed and a Red Tip Superspeed. However, this is no Blue Tip or Weishi. It is a very smooth and comfortable razor, and much more so than any DE89 heads that I've tried. I could get an autopilot shave with this one, if I was fatigued. My compliments to the chef, as this one is a keeper!
Since Viking is an Australian co. I think they don't actually make these:Tucker wrote:...I was poking around Amazon, and I noticed a razor for sale that bears more than a striking resemblance, but at more than 3X the price. It gets good reviews:

Murray, I suspect you'll want to keep the handle with the head. I think I've changed my mind, if it's ok with you. I will wait to see how the reviews stack up, pro and con, and I might want to just buy one of these razors for myself!CMur12 wrote:I'll keep that in mind.
