    Dart/Supermax BDT. I approached this first shave with the Dart with considerable trepidation knowing that Ruds had given it a too aggressive thumbs down as a head shaver (and we usually agree). It's ok for me, curiously loud like the blade is chattering but no tugs or skipping (unlike the Blackbird).

    My only big issue is another architecturally beautiful but functionally terrible handle from Shane who seems to have a fear of knurling I don't really get. When it gets upside down on my head the wet handle wants to go elsewhere which is really not good given how much exposure we've got here. As sensible as Frank Lloyd Wright chair. I won't be using the handle again.

    Excellent shave otherwise, I like the level of aggression just fine, adequately smooth, and build quality of course is superb.

    First go with the Blackland Sabre L2 and I'm very impressed. Medium aggression in the blade feel department but after two passes I was near BBS, I did a third pass to seal the deal.
