    You just can’t get a bad shave with the Vector. Throw a blade in and get your shave on, plain and simple. No fuss, no muss. But, with the Pro Super this razor is worthy of the shave gods on Mt. Olympus.....

    I got a roommate for the Machined Vector...... A Polished Vector. Pics don’t do this razor any justice.

    Just a wonderful shave with the polished Vector. Extremely easy and a pure joy to use. Is it more effective than the machined version of the Vector? I really can’t say to be honest. I don’t remember feeling any drag or the razor being less smooth than the polished version. I would probably have to wait and do a side by side with both Vectors and see if there is a difference in face feel and shave quality. But, does it really matter? Not in the least I would think. Good prep and a good lather will help any razor glide smoothly across ones face. In the end, only a head to head face off will give a definite answer.

    In the meantime, I can make do with the polished Vector any day of the week. Twice on Sunday if I could....

    Thread Revival!!

    I had this shaving Olympian quiet far to long. I had been on a spree of shaving with newly acquired DE’s both standard & adjustable (one prototype) that had my head spinning but, leaving me with a s**t eating grin after every shave. Today I wanted to change it up and wanted an SE shave and saw the Vector sitting there stoically just waiting for an opportunity to slice & dice some facial whiskers. It was on and it did not disappoint. Loaded up a fresh Pro Super and this American Samurai sliced and demolished 2 days of growth like a freshly forged Hatori Hanzu Steel (Kill Bill Vol.1) cutting through the Crazy 8’s gang. Magnificent tool that is designed for the utmost in cutting prowess, maneuverability, comfort and near perfect balance. Also, not a bad razor to look at either. LOVE this thing....

    Back to the top.....

    Set up the Vector with the Feather Pro (6 uses on the blade) and it just knocked down stubble with ease. The Feather was not at it’s optimal cutting regime but, it still left me with a near BBS finish on both face & neck. Might have to bin the Feather Pro after this shave. Still, the Vector with a less that optimal blade delivered a smooth, close shave albeit with the slightest of tugging on the ATG pass. This razor is a serious contender for RAD Killer it is that good. The only negative and I say this very lightly is perhaps the blade install/removal. Could be a bit challenging at first but, once you get a few shaves in and get your install steps down, it’s a breeze. Truly, a remarkable razor.....
