I figured as much. I currently have Gillette Rubie, GSB, Platinum and Nacet in the rotation and with the exception of the Nacet being a touch sharper and the Rubie not being as smooth...they all pretty much come out the same. Also have some Blue Blades and Super Blue Blades but can’t open the packs...LOL.
'62 Gillette Slim 01/31/19
On the final shave of mild to wild, the British red tip SS certainly delivered. It is more aggressive than an American red tip SS. Better and closer shave but the Red Tip Rocket is just as good if not better and is a completely different type of shaver it in that is a lot more smooth and efficient than either SS. It was also the closest shave of the 3 British SS razors.

Thanks, I have a couple of these and thought I'd give one of them a try. Glad I did, one of the best shaves I've had.
probably one of the best razors gillette made..
Decided to reach for a Slim this morning and I landed on the 64 Delta Echo - Cubano Edition. Beautiful razor. Loaded up with a fresh Voskhod and lathered up with an all Canadian sandalwood affair. 3 pass BBS shave. Topped off with Guerlain Santal Royal and a perfect start to Friday and the weekend. Happy shaves!
