How smooth is your Charcoal Goods razor?


Über Member
Now that the antique finish is starting to wear off exposing the raw brass, I'm losing the out of the box smoothness when shaving. At first I thought it might be down to sub-par lather so I switched up and bowl lathered this morning. Still not getting the same smoothness as before. Will try changing the blade next. Anyone else having the same experience?


Extraordinarily Uncomplicated
No +1. My goal was keep the antique patina and apply the Renaissance Wax. My goal was not always met and head could get shiny. Still a really smooth razor.


Forum GOD!
No issues, here.
It could be possible that the patina was, somehow, contributing to the 'smoother' shave that you noticed.
I have always found my Weber DLC (diamond-like-coating) to be smoother then the ARC and the PH which don't have any coating.
Good luck resolving the issue.

Thanks everyone. Don't get me wrong it is still very smooth, just not as smooth.

I'm not bothering to preserve the antique patina and like the brass showing through.
