Who has this legendary razor head that's just collecting dust?
I have a bad case of RAD and I am doing everything I can to cure it once and for all.

Would appreciate the opportunity!



Head or entire razor!

Best of luck with acquiring, possibly, the smoothest DE around.  Shy

would you say it's smoother than razorock baby smooth / slant?
I've tried a lot of razors recently, just have found a razor to match the smoothness/comfort of razorock baby smooth and slant.
Just curious if weber trumps razorock as well.
If so, I am even more eager to get one!

That really depends on you as this is highly subjective. I actually find the DLC smoother than the RRBS, but much more effective since it has a larger blade gap. The RR Slant was too aggressive for me. 
The DLC coating is what contributes to the smoothness of the shave as it causes some kind of 'drag'. Folks have tried convincing me that this is just nonsense and a placebo effect, but my skin knows, otherwise.  Biggrin
Having said all of this, you might not find it smooth at all. 
Good luck.

Try a PH, and if you love it, then commit youself to the long haul of finding a DLC.

I actually find my weber arc to be smoother than my weber dlc but just a little, they are also less aggressive than the weber PH. My order of preferences goes arc > dlc > PH. in theory the coating shouldnt really have that much of an effect on the aggressiveness due to fact that its so thin....but i can definitely feel a difference.

Was that RR slant stainless one ? I agree stainless RR slants are aggressive, but the aluminum one felt about same in aggressiveness as baby smooth, at least for me.

yes weber made much much larger quantities of the PH (polished) head. the arc and dlc coatings were limited editions and the last ones came out years ago. Beware of the wavy blade issue however. Weber has also stopped making heads a few months and as of current has no plans to make heads again (?) so people are less likely to sell them....but they are still much much more likely to be bought than the arc/dlc heads.

Weber razors are to the most part stainless versions of the Merkur Sb head as known in the 34hd. Got one of these already?

No, the RazorRock Baby Smooth is an anodized aluminum razor. 

I find the Weber PH and ARC to be at the same aggression level and more aggressive than my DLCs. Unfortunately, the PH heads are no longer available, but they are less expensive to acquire than the DLCs.  Also, the 34C would be a good razor to try to see if you would like the DLC as it is very comparable in aggression, but just not as smooth, in my opinion.

34c was my favorite razor until i gave it away to my family member.  I forgot how it felt now,  but i remember it was a solid performer.

hoping for someone to let go of the DLC version.
