I’ve been getting some great shaves from my 2017 Rocnel Elite recently.

So far, I’ve found that this razor will accept Feather, Voskhod, Rapira Platinum Lux, Rapira Swedish Supersteel, Derby Premium, Derby Extra, Shark Stainless, Shark Chrome and Asco (orange packet) blades.

It won’t accept a host of other blades (including all Gillette P&G blades, Lord, Big Ben, Personna, Supermax, Trig etc) won’t fit due to the tolerances used on the centre post.

It was designed around a Feather and it shows that even from the same manufacturer (such as Lord for example, not all blade tolerances are equal).

It’s certainly helped clear up the question as to whether Lord Classic, Sharks, Asco’s and Big Ben’s are identical blades. They’re clearly not otherwise they would all fit.

The same can be said about Shark and Lord Chrome blades (as the Shark’s fit whilst the Lord’s don’t).

If, of course, you want an Elite that will use all other blades on the market then your only option is to snag one of the 2018 LE’s Phil currently has on sale.

I like mine best with Gillette bleue extra blades.
Those are very tight fitting, but no problem.[Image: 12dc43d3dd71424d66ae3672ce60f027.jpg]
