HOW TO USE
Alex Johnson / Derry
I was recommended this razor by someone at Executive Shaving. The razor is exactly as described, incredible engineering, the weight is just right and the shave as smooth as promised by Executive Shaving (was it Barry?).
Yes yes yes - go get one!
This is not for a beginner to DE shaving. It was my second razor bought after I had a few months of experience with DE shaving. I consulted various shaving blogs and forums before deciding on this one.
The 39C is a fairly hefty razor with a cast head and a long and heavy shaft. It is also a very aggressive razor. The right technique is to keep a light touch, and it will slice through several days worth of beard with ease. It will leave your face significantly smoother.
I have tried it with various blades, and I have noticed that it works best when paired with Feather blades.
Go ahead and get one !
Various blogs recommend the Slant Bar as one's second razor purchase and for good reason. It is perfect for a 2 day growth, having the cutting power of more aggressive razors, yet far kinder to the face if wielded gently. Perfect for the combination of heavier beard and sensitive skin. Brilliant.
Not for shaving with every day unless you use a very light touch, a sharp blade and a high quality cream / soap. Not for a new comer to DE shaving.
If you know what you're doing - buy one, it slices through my tough beard like no other razor can.
