Impression

Green theme, tonight and a first go with this new to me Durham Duplex.

I got a lovely hand-written note with the razor. Who says eBay can't be personal?

As I suspected, the blade has really settled down and I was treated to a very smooth shave with no issues, no nicks, no irritation, no fear, just a great shave! The blades are rigid and reassuringly sharp, but somehow very forgiving in these razors. The guard provides the right angle and the shave proceeds quite naturally thereafter.

Veg to finish ...

Lovely job!
