My newest acquisition. 

First shave with a Gillette Silver Blue blade was absolutely amazing.

I just shaved with the identical razor a few hours ago. Such a nice close shave. Yours is in much nicer shape than mine, and I've got mine stuck on a heavier handle, but it is a monument to simplicity. It just works.

One of the finest DE razors, IMO.

Great razor! I love my replated NEW short comb, but my long comb is right up there too! In fact, maybe next week should be a NEW week. Good reminder!

I've been going through my vintage Gillettes with Stirling soaps/Voskhods finally. The silver blues are nice, but with a good slick lather voskhods are amazing.

Great Picture.  My New Long OC is a fantastic shaver.

Thanks for reminding me. I think I'll pull out the short comb for a shave tomorrow.

One of the finest shaving OC out there! With the right blade it also gives me less irritation than any other OC I have.

Shaved with my replated NEW SC this morning since it had been about a month since I had (in the meantime, I'd been spending quality time with my ATT S2, my R106, and a few ill-advised goes with the ATT H2). Having spent time with these other razors now, and doubtless with my technique that much improved, coming back to the NEW I was more impressed than ever. I got a closer shave with less fuss than any of these other razors (even the S2). The effectiveness of just the first WTG pass was impressive, and not something I got from the rough-to-me H2. What is it about the magical NEW design, anyway? Fantastic razors.

Yep.  These are pretty awesome razors.  I found a Red and Black in the case in near-perfect condition in the wild.   Bought it for $25.  Used it for a while and really loved the shaves it provided.   Even remarked to my wife  that I wondered why I had other razors when this one did the job so smoothly and so well.   I have no idea why if eventually sat in a drawer mostly unused for long enough that I decided to sell it.  I've regretted it ever since.  At some point I need to get another one of these.  I just don't see them in the condition mine was in very frequently.  I may have to buy a nasty one and pony up for a re-plate.  Really nice shavers.

I bought my NEW SC already replated by Sportshaving. That would be a good source to check, in addition to a number of other good replaters.

I got my replated New LC from Nick at Sportshaving as well.  I am very pleased with the way the razor shaves and it looks fantastic.
