    Very nice. I am tempted by the aluminum Lupo.

    I probably won't keep my aluminum Lupo now that I have the SS. I want to do some side by side comparisons between the two and test the aluminum head on some heavier handles. If you would like to take it for a test drive let me know.

    Mine arrived today, a day early. But, it will have to wait till the weekend to get its maiden voyage. I'm not so sure about the included half blades so my first run will be with my usual blade an Astra SP, well half of one of course. Oh, and I got the matte black version and it is very good looking.

    Second shave with the ECO, really liking it's ability to shave at a super shallow angle. I still get the impression that the blade wants to catch and skip on the first pass unless I use a really fast stroke. I'm not sure if it's the blade or the lightness of the razor. I was planning on switching to a different razor next shave but I think I'll give this one another go and do some experimenting. I'll probably try the crown blade with a heavier SS handle as well as try a top tier sharp blade with the aluminum handle and just see how it feels.

    Stirling 2019 Dirty South Shavers soap and AS

    Did a little experimenting with the ECO this morning. I started the shave with the stainless steel handle and the crown Super Stainless blade. It still had a bit of drag and hesitation so I switched out the blade for a fresh ½ Nacet. Much better! It cut through the whiskers without pause and made the razor feel much smoother. I also tried the Nacet with the SS handle but it didn't offer any improvements so I finished the shave with the aluminum handle. I'm really digging the scent of the Dirty South Shavers set, it smells so good! Anyway, three passes for an IBBS finish. Have a great day and weekend my friends!

    If curiosity overcomes you, now that I've mentioned it, let me know what a 1/2 Feather blade does for it.
    That's the first blade I'm gonna try when the mailman delivers mine.
    Sounds like it handles like most light razors, sharp blades make it handel better over the skin. Duller or less keen blades cause it to take a corner badly and skip or jump on the straightaways.
    Thanks for the report Andrew.
