Joe writes: I have several Gillette and Schick classic DE razors with big (fat) heads. I noticed some of the razors you displayed in some of your videos have very thin heads on them (like the one in the ad above), and like some of your three piece razors I saw in your videos. I would actually prefer to have a razor like that with a thin head. I used to have one, a Gillette Super Speed razor. I remember it was a three piece and the head was smaller and thinner than my other DE razors. I’ve received some great shaves particularly from my Gillette’s, but I’ve gotten clumsy in my old age LOL. I’d like to know what you would recommend in the thin head category (Merkur, Parker, etc…)
Generally speaking, three piece razors have thinner heads than two piece or twist-to-open razors. A few that I’ve seen that are exceptionally thin include the Goodfella razor (open comb but a reasonably mild shaver), the Lord L6 (a pretty cheap razor, OK quality), and the Bevel razor. Hope that helps!
