    Thanks! The 66 A’crat is a fab of mine in rotation. Next up is the 69 Super 84.

    421FCB41-8CF2-4AEF-A189-9952B769EA7D.jpeg Keeping with the Gillette Adjustable theme, I reached for my 69 Super 84 this morning and dropped a Voskhod blade into it. I have several Slims, Aristocrats and Fatboys but this Super 84 is a better shaver than all of them. Two passes on 6 and the last on 5 left me with zero irritation and a BBS shave. Haven’t used the Proraso Green in a while so I grabbed the pre-shave cream and the shaving cream and finished off with the matching AS for today. Excellent shave all around.

    Rating: 5 / 5

    Stirling brush, soap, and edt, Aqua Velva, and my 1946'-1947' Aristocrat. One of my best razors.

    Really nice set up! I have a 46-47 A’crat myself and do agree it is a fantastic shaver.

    Seems my pic is too large to upload. I have cropped it but still too big. So maybe I will leave the 34-35 out of the pic...
