    The sun's shining, the snow's gone, the shave was excellent.
    What a great start to the week.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    With two shaves with the New SC under my belt it seemed appropriate to compare the shave with my New Improved. I may be in the minority but I prefer the New Improved from every perspective. From the handling perspective, the NI is perfectly balanced, whereas the standard bar handle NSC is extremely head heavy. Not only do I find the NI smoother, it also does a better job ATG on my crown stubble. If as the blade rigidity obsessives claim there is a rigidity advantage to the NSC it's not apparent to me. Great shave. AOS Sandalwood, fresh Nacet.[​IMG]

    I've only shaved using the >70 year old proprietary blade but I look forward to many more shaves with her.
