    As you can tell from the title, this is for any SOTD with Frankenrazors. I originally was going with "Frankenrazor Fridays", but why do a Friday shave only. One type of razor I've always enjoyed shaving with is a Gillette New Comb. But after I added this brass Colonial General handle to this LC head, it has become my favorite New LC. It's just a fantastic razor combo..................

    I have a King C. Gillette razor and like the head but not the handle so I paired it with a RazoRock Barber Pole handle instead. It makes the balance fairly neutral so it provided an even shave. I used a new Bic Chrome Platinum blade along with Col Conk Lime soap and Clubman Pinaud Citrus Musk. I'd characterize the shave as a DFS. There are a few minor rough patches and a slight bit of irritation but none of the red stuff. All in all, not bad. Happy shaves!

    It does but next shave with this head will be on an Edwin Jagger handle. I like that it's thick but lighter which should help move the balance closer to the head.

    Henson AL13 with RazoRock SLOC handle. The added weight of the handle makes handling the very light AL13 much easier and feels like my other DE razors.

    PS - Also testing uploading a pic. Obviously not what I intended.
