    Teck2 (Radio Knob handle)/Pakistani Treet Platinum (1). I usually choose balance over weight but the heavy RR handle works well with the mild but efficient head. Many thanks to @Nicked for letting me try the Treet blades, they are working great for me.

    I just finished a shave with a Star razor, and I must say that it’s one fine mild razor. I’d definitely recommend it if you can find one.

    The Schick Krona is a great daily driver! I used it for all of Schicktember.

    This looks like a great razor and that $8 price tag make it easy to consider.

    1950 US made Gillette Executive, my understanding they only made these for the Christmas season in 49 and 50. It looks like an Aristocrat but shaves like a 3pc tech.

    Eastern European possibly Soviet most likely 60s era. This shaves like a smoother version of a Schick Krona.

    Here is another one I would classify as mild but deadly. This one could fall on the borderline like the red tip but it is the best mild shaver I can remember using. I think this maybe the only Goodwill that the base plate is based upon the New Long Comb.

    Recommendation taken. It also helps I managed to snag this one for under $10. If this is comparable to a 3pc tech then this maybe the most underrated best value vintage in the mild range. I should get to it by Monday or Tuesday to shave with.

    Paired with a nice sharp blade and you'll have a sweet shave!
