    Really nice work on those DEs John!
    I like the Gillette slim HarryWally gave me. Still figuring the sweet dial setting as I found 5 too much with a feather blade.
    Are those adjustable?

    No, they are not adjustable. I have 3 adjustable razors, but the Lady Blue is an awesome shaver with all the brands I have put in it. I have another Lady Blue that stays in the rotation at all time.

    What is the length of each of those boxes? Those handles look looooooong, does that help to get an ultra-light touch?

    W&B lust.........

    Both handles measure exactly 4" from the bottom of the head. Never really thought about the length of the handle in regard to touch,, mainly it's the weight of the razor that decides the pressure/touch.

    never tried this razor but you peaked my interest.
    this one is a 1965.
    it appears that there was no change to the razors over that period as they look identical.

    Hey Mike, i too was trying to figure out the sweet spot on the dial of my razor.
    I am sure that you would be able to set at an aggressive setting with a feather as long as you are careful with your angle.
    Perhaps you could try with a Astra or Derby first????
