    It's a very lightweight razor with a long handle and almost has the feel of a Mach 3 in my hand. Much better shave though. It is mild and does the job without irritation.

    Over the holidays I used several different razors but now I'm back to the one I use about 95% of the time, my first model (D4-1958) Fatboy...

    First use of the Chubby 1 and I need to sort out the face lathering bit. Great razor and blade combo and a fine 2 pass shave.

    A much better shave once I went back to the tub with the Chubby 1. Needs more water to dial in the face lathering bit. Excellent 2 pass shave! Love the New SC and LC!
