I’m a retired 72-year-old who’s been using the same Schick Krona DE razor since purchasing it for $1.49 in the late 60’s. My son introduced me to another forum where I heard about this one. I recently upgraded my Krona to a Karve with an E plate. Loved the face shave it gave me. The Karve was great for my face, but did not work well for my head. I thought I'd be sticking with my Krona for my head until my B plate arrives from Karve, but that was before I received an Omnishaver Premium from my son. I was able to shave my entire head in less than 45 seconds to the BBS level.  I was amazed.

Got some great feedback on the other forum from experienced Karve shavers, one of whom also used to shave with a Krona. He said the neutral blade extension on the Krona was pretty much identical to the B plate on the Karve and provided the same level of aggression and efficiency. Unfortunately, Chris Karve has been on vacation until this Monday (8/19). So my new B plate should be mailed out at that time. Am also considering an open comb C plate, but need to learn more before I pull the trigger. In any case I look forward to meeting and participating in this friendly and supportive community.

Welcome!

Kronas are under-appreciated on most forums - however - I think they have a generous sweet spot and are comfortable shavers. 

I've been waiting on pulling the trigger on a Karve myself.  Looking forward to hearing how you find it and how it compares.
