Impression

I have been looking forward to shaving with an Ever Ready Steamline for some time and a kind chap on a shaving forum leant me his.

I have read that it is no different from a 1912, even that a 1912 is better, but I think that unfair. This is indeed an excellent shave and very much akin to the 1912, but the more solid feel, the heavier presence, the classier razor all go together to produce an altogether better shave than the 1912. All the 1912 elements are there, the blade feel, the blade sound, just that it is delivered in a more solid package.

Lovely shave ...
