    Cool Just arrived....

    Opened the mail box and my EJ R356rs arrived.....too bad I shaved this morning (w/cartridge); hopefully the last time.

    The finish is what stands out, clean and mirror bright, a degree better finish than the M38C I examined the other day.

    Will keep youse guys posted......

    Tomorrow I will test the razor with a WalMart special Wilkinson Double Edge blade.....

    A package of 5 Derby blades came with it, so the're will be comparisons.

    Do you have a selection of blades at home? Surely a handsome razor like that deserves better than Wally World Wilkies...

    Right now that's all I have, but I expect to experiment with others in time. I grew up using a DE with Gillette razors and blades. Been using cartridges since they first became available. Time to make the switch!

    Bought two straights at the flea market last week and sent them out for cleaning and sharpening......
