    That LaResche 77 razor looks very assertive..I assume it's a wonderful shaver?...Today i had a quick window shopping browse on Ebay for the 1924 Shovelhead replacement, & a look at the Auto Strop VC4...I like the design of the VC4 my only crit that puts me off getting one is the blades are too pricey for me,all the VC4's on sale are in the US, which will have to be shipped to the UK ..Don't get me wrong, i'm not frugal,not in the least, but the personna Gem blades i can use in both The VC1 and my Gem Micromatic OC which i can get at a reasonable price...I've put any shaving related purchases on hold for while until my work situation gets back on track.Take care. Yours-Barry.:cool:

    Schick Easy Rider injector, (S)chick blade, shave 2

    Shave was closer though not perfect from the previous shave with this razor using a vintage Schick blade. Proves there is a difference between the vintage and modern blades and also proves the Schick Grip is a different shaver that is milder than this razor and tuned for twin blades first and foremost.
