    Clint, that blade exposure is almost scary. Almost. I bet that and the larger blade gap make for a very efficient shaver.

    The blade gap is pretty large but the razor is a very smooth shaver. The key for me was using a more steep angle (handle closer to the face). It is really a very efficient razor being one of the few DEs I have tried that will equal the shave from my Cobra Classic.

    Thank you Andrew. It has been a great month. I will finish out the week with the Timeless OC before moving to one of my other razors.

    Hello all, here's my OC SOTD for Today-

    [​IMG]

    I have had this Nickel Gillette New SC for awhile now, but haven't used it til now. The reason being is that mostly I have had less than stellar shaves with them. Not so today! This little razor really opened my eyes to the wonderful world of New Short Combs. I wish I could figure out the name of this set. The case is one of those that was made for the European market and the razor is nickel plated.

    I'm doing a blade Focus with my NEW right now. I'm using GSB's this week. It's a stubble assassin. I shave M-F for work and yesterday I got a one and a half pass nearly BBS shave. Good luck with your NEW.

    Thank you Andrew. I noticed when I posted that the blade exposure looks huge in the photo.
