    Thebigspendur, my goodman, how well you know me by now. You and Ryan both. Victor, too. I have an obsession with beautiful things. In this case it's the Goodfella. It's a lovely razor. I was obsessed with the Edwin Jagger "Chatsworth" barley (lined) and had to have it — and it's gorgeous. The same thing with the stainless steel Feather — what a beautiful razor.

    The PILS was a big obsession, too, and what a stunning razor that turned out to be. Unfortunately the razor's weight and slim handle defeated my banged up hands. I finally gave up the PILS and it went to a deserving friend. The Edwin Jagger 89L and the Muhle 89R are beautiful razors and I have them. I love some of the old Gillettes for their simple beauty, and they are beginning to grow on me as shavers.

    Now comes the Goodfella, a beautiful razor and my newest obsession. I might even begin to like the open comb — lately I have been using my two open comb vintage razors more than usual. So which will it be in the coming days, Goodfella or not? Last night I was against it, and this morning for it. Tonight I'll see where I end up after a couple snifters of cognac. Oy!

    Regards,

    Obie

    Obie,

    A few weeks ago, after a restless night followed by a very early morning, I sliced my cheek open with my Genco Easy Aces spike point razor. For the next two days, I had to put up with people telling me that I had what appeared to be sharpie marker ink on my face, as the wound was almost black as it healed. That day, I ordered a Goodfella DE from WCS for those mornings when I just don't have time to really concentrate on shaving.

    I have to tell you, while I'm a DE novice, I have been very impressed with the performance of this razor. I use Feather blades, and have been very satisfied with the shaves I've gotten from it. When I first opened the package (a very nice box, I might add), I was surprised by how small the Goodfella actually is, but one can tell right away that it's a very high quality product. The lifetime guarantee is quite a nice touch as well.

    Just in case you were still on the fence about it...

    Best,

    The Goodfella is my Go-To DE razor. I just love it!

    Nicely weighted and made in NZ so you know you have quality. I have just send a couple of Goodfella's into FHM magazine Australia for an upcomming article "the great shave debate" to battle off against schick/gillette cartridge systems.

    It is suited for new and experienced shavers alike, though not for seriously heavy beards or guys with giant hands, there are more suitable DE's for you then but for most of us it is a great DE razor.

    Well? We're waiting Sam...
    Actually, I've had my eye on a goodfella for a while too. I don't know that I actually need one, but we all know how that goes don't we?!
