    If it's older than you, it's vintage ;).

    Decided to switch it up and reached for the Single Ring Clone. The razor has no markings on it but closely resembles clones of German origin. Thin cap with a lot of blade reveal but a fantastic shaver! Lathered up with Fine Italian Citrus and on a snowy day in February it was just the ticket. Followed up with the matching AS and a DFS 2 passer, done and dusted. Happy Monday!
