My Gillette Old Type from my vintage Khaki Kit still gives great shaves a hundred and one year after he was born - try that with a cartridge razor...

Hard to kill steel. I thought about that in relation to this new "plastic" milled, razor, selling for the same price as it's sister steel model.
Will it last as long as steel ? 101 years is a long time, in 202 years that razor will still look the same. Smile

When an archeologist digs up your razor in 1,000 years it will still give a great shave. If he can find a soap that isn’t sold out or about to be shipped.

Vegian you are so right, 

I have 5 razors in my rotation 3 are Single Ring (thin cap) Ball End, best razer ever made if you want a smooth efficient aggressive razor. One thing I have found with all the Single Rings that I have had and have is the blade does not line up evenly on both sides, one side has a little more blade exposure than the other which gives you a DC effect. The Silver and Brass and the Gold and SS I use with a shim for more blade exposure, they shave the same. The Silver and SS is a US army, this razor I don't use a shim and still, it's more aggressive than the regular Single Ring (I have 3 armies they all shave the same)
