Does anyone else think that the Wilkinson Sticky Razor is absolute ACES? As far as I am concerned it is the best shaving razor for my face that I have tried, with the STAR Model 100 being a not too distant second! The Sticky Razor is very mild, yet efficient, and smooth as ice. I have used one six times now, every shave has been right on the money...perfection!

I have stopped searching, and even started selling off my other razors. Sure I am going to keep some favorites to spice things up when variety is called for, but...those instances may be few and far between!

My shave this evening was executed with a Paladin Chief brush, Nuavia Black Shave Soap, a Wilkinson Sticky Razor, a vintage Polsilver Stainless blade on its 3rd use, Hemingway Accoutrements Aftershave, and Hemingway Accoutrements Aftershave Balm. A truly sublime experience that was a wonderful way to end the day!

I will post some pictures of my Sticky Razor tomorrow. Does anyone else have any great pictures of this magnificent razor, or thoughts?

I used to own a sticky and regret selling it. It is definitely mild but, it always delivered a good shave.

Gents,

Here are the pictures of what I would call a complete beater Sticky razor.  The previous owner took awful care of it, and these pics are after I cleaned it up!  

However it does have some redeeming qualities:

   - I only paid 25 shipped!

   - It does not have the hairline crack
     underneath that is fairly common on
     these razors.  This is something to
     look for if you are thinking about buying
     one of these magnificent instruments!

   - Mechanically it functions 100%, and does
     not have a lazy door, or anything else
     wrong with it...the TTO is smooth, and it
     shuts securely.

   - It delievers the same perfect shave as the
     mint one that I own!  Absolute perfection!

Now had I truly known the poor condition of this razor (seller on eBay did not answer my questions accurately), I would not have bought it.  However, I sure am glad that I did!

I will take care of it as if it were mint, and hope for the best!

I’ve owned a few and really appreciate the aesthetics, but sold all the ones I had. I just found it to be too mild but it’s it is a great example of minimalist design and engineering. Here are a few pics of one of the ones I owned.

That’s a great way to describe it... “minimalist design.” I appreciate its simplicity and build quality!

I used a fresh Personna 74 in it for last night’s shave with Baume.be shave cream, and the shave was beautiful! Baume.be is another throw back that I loved, but haven’t used forever...it was good to dust off the jar and enjoy it!

On another note that is unrelated to the Sticky Razor...I snagged 20 Personna 74 razor blades for 23 shipped last night off of eBay!
