Ever since this Heritage Gibbs came out I've been wanting to do a side by side to see how they compare. Here are the 2 razors First the build quality, the nod here definitely goes to the Heritage. The metal handle and adjustment nut that lines up correctly at 1 on the lowest setting on the Heritage and the spring seems to be more stiff but that could be due to the age on the Gibbs razor and metal fatigue. One thing that I did notice and it maybe to due to the springs is that the Heritage at 1 hash mark higher than on the Gibbs the blade gaps are about equal. One test I plan to do is switch the springs and see if that relationship flips or not. Onto the initial shaves.
