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.
