    Thanks Terry. The 37c is definitely the one by which all others are measured, for good or ill.

    Wonderful Fuzzy.
    The 37 is a fantastic gimmicky razor, slants seem to take out tough beards.
    Great shave.

    If you're feeling really brave, you might want to give the Putali heavy duty slant bar a try.

    Congrats! My only advice is to make sure blade is aligned well. There is a good amount of wiggle room, as with the Maggard.

    The Putali heavy duty slant razor is quite mild. A kitten to say the least.
    A heavy razor with a large head .
    20190828_061137.jpg
    Took 3 passes with 2 Feather blades to do an OK job.
    The mild mannered razor is a keeper, but not going to get a very close shave from this one.
