Hi I have just picked up a Gillette Executive Gold plated on eBay for the princely sum of £40. Slipped in a Derby blade and gave it it's first run out today. Dialed it to a 4 to start with for the first pass then tried a 5 before finishing on a 7. It's only my second adjustable the first being a birth year slim adjustable that I couldn't make work for me, but being a birth year I don't mind too much. So first impressions of a razor which is basically a fatboy are that it gave a beautiful shave with a very similar feel to my beloved Aristocrat, but with that added flexibility of being able to adjust it and it looks nearly as good as my Aristcrat too.
