I've said this elsewhere, but I think it's worth repeating. Especially to myself as I always veer off on new tangents.
Dusted off a 40s SuperSpeed today, still had an Astra SP in it, which I'm fairly sure only had one shave on it.
Some MW Coconut Lime Verbena lathered up quickly with a Shavemac finest and before I knew it, one of the most boring razor/blade combos had delivered a great and easy smooth shave.
Sometimes simple just works.

Keep simple is great.  Those oldies do deliver some nice shaves, King G. was a genius.

Gillette made a ton of Super Speeds for a reason - they just work. Perhaps I will dust mine off. I've neglected it in favor of my Tech and Merkur 37c.

My SS's don't get a ton of love but when they do I'm always blown away at the quality of the shave. I need to use mine soon!

My favorite SS I have used was an A1 (55) flare tip that I gifted to a friend who I converted.  Still regret not giving up a different razor.

I have FB, Slim adjustables or 3 pieces and still enjoy just load and go with the rocket HD.
Blade always aligns perfectly and the aggression is perfect for my regular shaves.

I've been on a Gillette kick lately and getting great shaves. The Fatboy might be my go to razor. Also fun with Rocket, Tech & SS. Simple. Smooth.
