When I used to shave with DE razors I held out a hope that I would one day own a Philips Philite razor, a vintage bakelite razor with a real reputation for smoothness.

Well, I finally own one and it seemed right to try it out ...

So, dropping a known good blade in, one that is certainly very sharp, I set about my shave. I found the razor smooth, yes, but perhaps mild? I had to apply a good amount of pressure to get the razor to do its thing to any degree of satisfaction.

But, it worked and it worked well. Despite the pressure required, the shave was indeed smooth, trouble-free and the results were good. Damn fine shave!
