I reciently bought the SS Ascension and get pretty good shave with the exception of my neck(mainly the shallow trouble spots) and the shave doesn't seem to last as long as my Blackbird or Rockwell on plate 5
I'm tempted by the copper oneYou know, this razor's just excellent for newbies, too... who then wouldn't really have a good reason to buy anything else.
If you get the angle too shallow or too steep, it does nothing. Get it right and hair melts away. As safe as DE safety razors get, IMO.
It's just as comfortable for daily shaves as it is for weekly/bi-weekly shaves.
I think I'll buy me a second one.
