    Hi everyone, here's my OC SOTD for today with a 1909 Gillette ABC set. Blade used was a Bolzano Superinox.

    Scruffy, the ugly NEW razor. Looks are not everything.

    This setup is too easy. A great shave everytime. This was my first use of this razor, NEW LC with thin bar handle.

    Blade auditions for my Gillette 1911 OLD start Sunday. She's already locked & loaded with my baseline blade, Gillette Silver Blue.

    Hi, I don't think you will need a shim, I never did, but YMMV. The New Improved razors are very efficient. Even more so than a Gillette New. Or at least that has been my experience. I think you will enjoy it. Have a great night!

    I was on holiday just 20 miles from where this was made in Italy so it would have been rude not to get it.
    Darn fine razor, been my daily driver ever since.
