I was kindly offered the load of a Roller Guard which I was very grateful to accept and enjoyed a good, mild shave with it.

I was given this Frankenrazor the other day - the base plate and the handle might be from the same razor, maybe not. The screw in end and the top plate don't seem to go together.

In all, it's a dog ... a skinny, starved dog; and like the good folks who bring those fellows back to some normality, I gave this razor a damn good clean up. I don't often resort of Brillo pads for cleaning a razor and this was the first time I got the sanding blocks out. It's come up good enough, given a reasonable clean-up and can be pressed into action. I rather like it.

It seemed a fun choice for the Roller Guard and with a PermaSharp Super dropped in, screwing the handle tight showed that this guard seriously closes the blade gap and delivers a wonderfully mild shave. I think the roller action prevents clogging that very closed gap.

While it did not bring the closest of shaves, it was certainly good. I got a couple of weepers where I went specifically against the grain leading me to think the is specifically designed for a mild shave with the grain, a shave which it did very effectively.

Thanks! Enjoyed!
