Hey all, 

Been awhile since I've been on here, life has gotten a little hectic lately. 

One of my Co-workers who I got into wet shaving lent me a razor to try out, so I gave him some soaps to test and see if he likes any of them. 

The razor was a West Coast Shaving 175S, it is very similar to the Maggard MR8 with the exception that it is a little less than 1/2" longer than the Maggard (4" WCS handle/3.61" Maggard handle), and outweighs it substantially (148g handle only Maggard/ 175g handle only WCS) 

I love using these 1/4 pound razors, they require little effort to achieve BBS shaves. Plus you get a little morning work out in with a 3 pass shave lol.

He has the 175B now which is in black and wants to trade me my stainless MR8 handle for the 175S stainless handle so he doesn't have 2 identical razors, and I'm about 99% sure I'm gonna take that trade. Both heads on the MR8 and 175B/S are "Edwin Jagger DE89" types which are relatively mild, given the razor weight. Though with my recently purchased aggressive Maggard V3A head I'm thinking I'm really gonna love the shaves.
