[Image: 7ME9mb5.jpg]Gents,

I just purchased this!  It looked to be in good shape, and I should have it by the end of the week!

Does anyone own one?  How does it shave for you...mild, aggressive, etc!

Thanks!

I would rate it medium with a touch of mild, the SB of the AR#15 version on the other hand is the R41 of the Gillette razors lol

I have the #15 OC and SB. Mine are just the opposite I find the OC to be 9/10 on efficiency and the SB to be more a 6-7. It seems to me that there can be quite a bit of variation with these vintage razors

Hello! Thanks for the comment on efficiency...donyou find that the 9/10 efficiency is matched in aggressiveness, I recently used the feather AS-D2 and a vintage Gillette superspeed...I found both to be very efficient, and also very mild!

Thanks again!

I don’t find it very aggresive. Its a nice razor. I have not experienced the sb, but based on pics I’ve seen the differences between these two are not limited to the safety bar.

Beautiful razor by the way. I think it is the best looking of all the vintage Gillette razors. To answer your question I find it to be very smooth and not harsh at all, yet very efficient. I can feel the blade but it glides effortlessly

Nice find. Looks like it was cleaned really well. 

I think the open comb will be ok. Not as mild as the super speed though. Still it's a great daily shaver. Nice case for it as well.

Thanks for all the great feedback gents, and if anyone has anymore thoughts or pics of their #15, please add them!

I sort of took a shot since I couldn’t find a whole lot of material addressing how it actually shaves.

Gents,

Triple whammie tonight! I finally got around to using this, and it is now my favorite razor. I am going to have to find a mint/collector grade one of these to add to my collection!

Tonight’s shave was simply amazing...the #15...ABC (first time I tried this shave croap and in my opinion it is superior to Cella and Boellis Panama), and I finished it off with Chella Cool Aftershave. It was a beautiful thing!
