Picked up a Barbasol Floating Head this past week in very good condition and just shaved with it using a Perma Sharp and oh my goodness was it a very nice shave --- if you let this big daddy work for you and apply minimal pressure, you can get BBS with little to no effort....but I found out very quickly that little to no additional pressure is needed.

Very impressed and has left me wondering why no one in the modern, DE push to make amazing razors has thought to make a modern clone of this razor....I really enjoyed tonight's shave!!!

** on a side note, anyone know if this razor can be replated in Rhodium? -- I think it would look stunning. **

Congratulations on the successful shave!
Unfortunately, I found the Barbasol too aggressive for me. However, it is a great razor with quite a bit of heft.
Enjoy the razor. Smile

thanks Cool

I find this shave to be very similar to the closeness of the Cobra SE but with a touch more smoothness and control for me.... really hoping it can be replated in Rhodium --- a razor like this deserves it.... Smile
