Sounds like the 34C/G close to a DFS+ (y)
I am thinking it's quite a bit more efficient than 34C without being aggressive but its been a while since I used 34C. I still have my first because it's the razor that started my wet shaving journey before RAD.
Will load it up with a Wizamet to compare (y)

Another beautiful smelling fragrance today. Tomorrow it's going to be "Shiver Me Timbers" from Beaver Woodwright.
Minora still strong, 7 shaves in with the Rockwell 6S "plate 3" on all 3 passes. Excellent.

At my FiL’s this weekend and used the St James of London.

Funny having a cream to hand lather rather than a stick to face lather. Nice change through and good result. Having the matching aftershave gel was a bonus. The gel was very smooth and comforting way to finish up.

Nice all things considered

It was bound to happen:cry:

I am positive that Valobra itself will make a comeback.
