    I bought this Gillette last week and just got around to cleaning it up. What a difference! I used it this morning and it’s my new favorite! The shave is better than my Fatboy. $8 770B62B1-E93E-4CA3-9F4A-576DEC031C4D.jpeg

    I don't think they would crack. The razors with the baseplate attached to the handle would be considerably safer to load. The 'spring' imparted by twisting a modern DE in a slant razor makes it just a bit more risky than loading a normal three piece razor. An even stiffer, thicker blade might be asking for trouble.

    The blade issues stemming from the tendency for cap corners to be damaged in minor drops were exacerbated in the New Improved by additional blade stress caused by configuration of the fulcrum shoulders. Changes in the spacing of the shoulders mid production didn't really fix the problem. The corner cut outs and slots in the New blade were designed to address these issues.
