    This here looks really interesting. A new 316/316L Stainless Steel razor from Stirling that looks like will be offered in two base plate configurations, mild/aggressive. It has been posted on a few social sites and forums and it has created a bit of a buzz so far. Good for Stirling. They’re a good company that offer exceptional value to the wet shaver. I just might take a stab at this when it becomes available. Very interesting........

    Very, Very interesting!

    I would love to know what the actual blade gaps are, on both base plates.

    Excellent! Can you possibly give us some info on whether it will be a positive, neutral or negative blade feeling razor? I can care less about gap as that's a very, very small part of the razor. An inkling would be awesome... :)

    Well, for those that are interested in this particular razor from Stirling, it has been mentioned that the SS razor in the works would not be a razor recommended for beginners as both base plates have been designed to be a bit more aggressive/efficient feeling. Which to me is a good thing as we're looking perhaps at positive blade exposure and/or neutral at the least. So, I'm assuming that the razor will be designed and made for the more experienced wet shaver. Besides, most newcomers into the DE world start out on the milder side and progressively work their way up the aggressive scale until finding something that works consistently for them.

    I'm liking it more and more. And a polished version should look wickedly good....

    Check this write up out Gents. Interesting and very telling of what Stirling is coming up with here with their new entry in the SS razor class. A great read that is very detailed and honest, I think....

    I apologize in advance to the mods if I did something wrong here in posting a Link from a different forum. If it must be deleted, so be it. I have no issues and certainly do not want to break any posting rules.
