Thanks to @americanshamrock, who hosted a very fun PIF, and @PickledNorthern for passing up the prize, I am now the proud owner of this wonderful shaving device! I had a Krona years ago that I got in a lot of four razors from eBay. These were my very first vintage safety razors, so I had no experience when I first got them. I decided early on that I liked the Red Tip that also came in the lot, and basically ignored the others. When my brother-in-law expressed interest in wet shaving, I tested the Krona to make sure that it worked properly and passed it on to him. I now wish I would have kept it! Had my first shave with the new Krona today, and what a great performer! Loaded up a Gillette Silver Blue, smeared on some yogurty goodness ala Chiseled Face Ghost Town Barber, and proceeded to enjoy a great, effortless shave. The Krona seemed to automatically fall right to the perfect angle, and the long handle and great balance left a lot of options for grip. While I'd never put this razor anywhere above moderate aggression, it's extraordinarily efficient. My first pass WTG left a visibly passable shave. I could have stopped there, but went ahead with a full 3 pass shave. The final ATG pass was very comfortable, and a bit of touch up in my trouble spots yielded a no-irritation BBS face! Where this razor really stood out to me was under my nose. Usually, TTO's seem a bit bulky to me in this area. The Krona head geometry made shaving this area as effortless as a three piece, or even an injector! Alum proved the comfort of the shave, no sting whatsoever. While a single shave can't really declare a favorite razor, the Krona is definitely on a fast track to the top of my list!
