Hello Red, That is the one. What Blade/Blades are your fav in this razor? I have used Wilkinson, Personna, Feather and now Derby. Derby has been the best on my face and I will be trying it on the head tonight. O0 O0

I've heard the Derby's are good, but I haven't tried them yet. I use the Astras. I can get 100 for $10 on Amazon. I liked the Feathers too.

For my face shaving, I prefer the Feather Blades. I am a fan of that Japanese Steel! Super sharp, but I do not use such blades for my head. Very cool you guys use some real vintage razors. I'm a younger generation so I like the new shiny razors. I've been shaving with a DE razor on my face for a few years now so I decided I deserved to splurge and upgrade my razor. As I am such a fan of Feather, I went with the Feather All Stainless safety razor. It wasn't cheap, but I did my research and many say, just as this article did, that it is one of the best safety razors on the market today. So far, I am loving it! Good weight, good feel, not too aggressive. Do you guys feel the vintage razors are just as good or dare I say better!?
