    Another tip, @Celar36, in line with the Gillette 77, is the Twist model from Muhle (R41 aggressive OC, R89 medium scalloped bar), in two parts for easy loading. If you have trouble loading blades, why not bring the razor to the blade so to speak rather than the blade to the razor: put the top cap on the table, position the blade, and slide the handle over. Plus, the handle is bigger than most, yet not particularly heavier.

    @Chief Brody it is not easy to make decision to post it.

    Behind every decision and post I do there is story.

    I had been asked why I search for unobtanium razor instead something available. Why I am consistent,with shave and use same products?

    Well not much choice for me tbh. Tradere chosen me rather me choosing it. Same Gillette NEW long Comb. As everybody else I would try more razors and them actually work for me. Many people whom know me long know of my journey to find razor that will work for me and I found two from which I own one. Wet shaving is truly at is golden age

    I love this hobby due it tought me a lot of self discipline and I met truly amazing people.

    As we speak, two great members are sending some razors for me to try!

    I don't really feel very disabled, but I do have slowly progressive muscle and strength loss in my dominant left shoulder and arm from post-polio syndrome, which can affect my shaving. For the last few years I have had to prop the elbow of my left hand, which holds my razor, in my cupped right hand in order to keep the razor raised to face level. More recently I have found that titanium razor handles are easier for me to use than heavier stainless steel ones. (I tried lightweight single edge razors but just couldn't get used to the face feel.) The most important factor for making my shaves practical is just taking my time, resting my left hand on the bathroom counter for a minute or two between passes, which makes the shave more enjoyable overall anyway.

    Have you tried the iKon Deluxe OC? It shaves very much like a New (funnily enough!) and the head covers the ends of the blade.
