Very nice razor.  I have the original N075. For those who have both the stainless and the original, how do they compare shave wise? any noticeable differences? The original shaves like a dream.

The SS model is just as smooth but more efficient and NO drag!!!

Just got mine in the mail before heading back to work.  Looks great in the polished finish.  I did put a blade in it and compared it with my original N075 and it looks like the blade gap is a little bigger in the new version.  I'll try and get a pic later tonight when I get home.  Looking forward to my shave tonight as well.

Looks great. Sides of the head look unpolished but that's about it. Shave tomorrow.[Image: 7aced9b60654d4e6ac0c2bd0fcb1ee64.jpg][Image: 1ffad2f9ac4b67ed7c4fa2539bc614b4.jpg][Image: 17a6f0d4b31b350dd42e781be4fbbca3.jpg][Image: a9850e67cdc5963371a762fbb14a909f.jpg][Image: 5027ea817b8d654524358e538466fdb6.jpg]

Looks very nice! How is the handle.  I wasn't crazy about the handle on the original but the shave was amazing!

The handle is ok. . if you favor a grip as pictured the razor will be perfectly balanced ( unlike some other manufacturers who follow a handle heavy trend). It's a bit long for my taste but that's totally subjective. [Image: 927ebc5d53f22bc04f38c200ac07fecb.jpg]

I have both and they shave pretty close to identical.  I've decided to let my all stainless go, so if anyone here decides they want it, it's up on the BST right now.

Can I ask why you are getting rid of the all stainless?

I'm keeping the original with aluminum baseplate.

I wonder if they will offer that baseplate again as just a baseplate option. That would be cool.

Guys, I posted this review on DFS. Thought it needs to be here as well.

Sooooooo, I have to give credit to rawfox1 for convincing me to pull the trigger on this razor. I did have several conversations with the owner and maker of this razor, Aji Sunjaya, and I was really impressed with his overall knowledge, confidence, availability and niceness! If you get a chance, send him an email and I guarantee that he will answer all of your questions in the nicest way possible. Anyway, on to the razor. I just finished an evening shave with it and it is now tied neck and neck with my Rocnel Elite A and my Wolfman WR2 1.25 SB side as the smoothest and most efficient razors in my collection. I used a once used Feather blade and found the correct angle immediately! My razor came fully polished on every inch of the baseplate and top plate. I immediately switched out the handle to a longer Stork titanium only because I have never really liked shorter handles. That is just my preference. The handle that comes with the razor is beautiful, just too short for me. The head has some weight but not too much that it is overly heavy. I thought that I might want the aluminum base plate as well but after using this one, I don’t feel a need for it. The efficiency is on that level of facegasm!! . Whenever I have a shave like this, I am continually feeling the smoothness from my shave and just how close it is. This one is here to stay for a long time in rotation and is right up there with the top razors I have ever tried. A lot of people told me this was as smooth as the Raw Shaving RS-10. I love that razor but I like this one more because there is still a bit of blade feel and some nice feedback for me. I am impressed on an entirely different level with this razor!! It has taken a slot in my razor shelf right next to the Rocnel in my regular SB Razors. Outstanding!! Hope he makes an OC down the road!!

Just to give a quick update.  I used my Wolfman WR1 DC .74 (standard gap) yesterday to get a comparison of the No75.  I used the same Feather blade so this was its third use.  To me, it's not even close.  The No75 is much more efficient.  I am going to use my Rocnel Elite 2019 LE A tomorrow and then my Wolfman WR2 1.25 for the next shave and then come back to my stainless No75 to really see how well it does.  I can say from the fond memories of that shave the other day and the closeness of the shave that I feel these 3 razors are all neck and neck in smoothness and efficiency.
