UFO GODZILLA Review from Bruce G., Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA -
UFO GODZILLA Revisión de Bruce G., Albuquerque, Nuevo Mexico, EEUU.

Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - July 15, 2012

The Godzilla handle from Rafael arrived yesterday afternoon and it’s everything that I had hoped it would be. The 15 mm caliber is larger than I had imagined, but fits my hand beautifully. At 85 mm length and a weight of 103 grams it’s a heavy handle but balances well with the Gillette NEW. The handle knurling is strong enough to insure a good grip but smooth enough to feel comfortable in the hand.

My first shave with the NEW and the Godzilla was the best that I’ve had with the SC NEW. I have a Med Prep blade, Mystic Water Bay Rum soap, and a 24 mm TGN super silvertip brush. I’m looking forward to shaving with the NEW LC, as I like that razor even better than the SC.

With the Gillette NEW I find that the correct angle seems to be natural, and the larger, heaver handle does not change that.

The one thing that I did notice was that the blade was smooth against my skin, no harsh scraping feeling. Possibly the added weight of the handle removed any temptation to apply more pressure. 

I used my typical three-pass shave, WTG, XTG, and finally ATG. No nicks, cuts, or weepers. With the NEW SC and the Godzilla I got a shave only slightly less than a BBS shave; I’ve only had better shaves with the LC. The only thing that has changed from my previous shaves, with this razor, is the handle.

I would like to add that dealing with Juan and Rafael, from the initial inquiries to the final purchase and shipping, was easy and informative. I can’t say enough about what a pleasure it was to work with them.
