    Welcome to SRP and thanks for your impressions of the Pils.

    Excellent stuff. I wonder if you would mind putting all of this into a review (there is a miscellaneous review section available).

    As far as images are concerned, you can either click on the little green picture frame in the forum editor, or use this to present thumbnails of your imageshack pictures: Learn Forums bbCode Secrets: Post Clickable Thumbnails Using ImageShack.

    Thanks!

    the images were still a little large and i didn't want to make some huge post with pics that were large then most screens. In nay case i am REALLY dyslexic so i try not to write.

    I'll work on an actuall review but it will take a few days. Also I don't consider myself to be any kind of authority on DE razors. I'm just a guy that is tired of giving his money to Gillette.

    Many thanks for the great photos. So one version of the razor has a flat sided handle and the other is round ? Are there other differences in the two models or is one simply an older edition than the other ?

    How aggressive is it? I really like the looks of it.

    I haven't used a DE in years now, having given away all my fatboys leaving only my Vision. But I recently had a bad cold and had to skip straights because of the sneezing and coughing, and wound up having to use a Gillette Fusion for two weeks. So a (good) DE is definitely in order...

    I find it to be middle of the road. I have nicked myself but never had any irritation from the Pils, I get a pretty close shave with little effort. The angle of attack is very shallow. I hold it flatter against my face then mst others razors i own.

    In the Pils catalog there are 7 version as I stated above. These are all new for 2009 / 2010 . The two pictured are basically the same. The left is a matte stainless with a round handle the right is a polished nickle plated razor with a hexagonal handle. Other wise everything about these razors is identical. They have more or less the same weight and give an equal shave.
