    The best shave yet from this razor and I think it's because it's my first SE shave in ages and I'm using the right length blade.
    Injector blades are slightly too short and AC ones are too long, so a pair of tin snips to the rescue.
    After using mostly travel brushes recently the 2000 felt a bit like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut but a thoroughly enjoyable shave ensued
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Yep, I usually have gone with a trimmed AC blade in the Model 3, and it's hard to beat.

    The short injector blade was always on my mind when I used them whereas when you have a proper sized blade you can move the razor around more freely.

    Maybe I just prefer the underdogs but in the same way I prefer the Gibbs 16 to the Adjustable, I prefer Cooper's three piece to the decidedly more hip Mono-bilt. Compares very favorably to the Fatip Gentile (I'd guess a little more gap, less exposure), a very easy and effective shaver.[​IMG]

    Something unusual for the OC group.

    Razor - Ikon SBS / Ikom OSS handle
    Brush - Jayaruh 242
    Soap - Barrister & Mann Seville

    A very heavy razor head along with a very heavy handle. The SBS is OC on one side only. This razor requires a light touch, but too light and you'll drop the thing. Actually a very close two pass, hurried shave.[​IMG]

    Nice. Classic. Nothing says OC like an Old Type.
