    First shave with the Clix was a little unnerving, it's very mild and finnicky about angle (resemblance to the Simplex purely superficial), this second much much better. I see a North Shore head replate in the offing. The 30g head does benefit from a heavier handle then the stock Bakelite one.[​IMG]

    It’s not bad. This one is English. It’s very mild and head heavy, but that’s about it. I kinda enjoyed it.

    i have never used one but i imagine a cheaper feel in the hand. my birthyear razor is a black handled superspeed but it doesn t feel as nice as my 1965 flaretip rocket, even though they both have the smaller head.

    Yeah, I’m familiar. I used to like Punch Cigars; CAO and AVO too. Lately I stick to the very occasional Monte Cristo.

    I know you said it was a Clix; where is it from? I’m not familiar with it.
