I took a chance and ordered the RS10 with medium aggressive plate and received it today.

The presentation is on a whole other level... It blows everything else away in that regard.

I know some have been very curious, so I thought I'd give an initial use review.

To put it simply.... This is the real deal. I was a little skeptical because the head geometry is similar in appearance to the Blackbird which, for me, was worrisome. I know the BB has a stellar reputation, but I'm one of the few who just couldn't get along with it. Luckily, appearance is where the similarity ends.

Using a Personna red on 2 days growth (I have a very thick beard), the first pass absolutely mowed thru things. I typically use either a first gen Tradere OC or a Wolfman 0.74 SB. The RS10 exceeded both in efficiency AND smoothness on the first pass.

I expected some harshness or unpleasant blade feel on the 2nd or 3rd passes, but it never came. It was as smooth at the end as it was at the beginning.

The heft of the razor is in it's sweet spot for me, and the finish is on par with any modern DE. Again, the presentation is next-level.

I'll throw in a feather blade and report back. As of now, I think RS is getting ready to take off once the word spreads.

A common greeting was 'Well, Gillette, how's the razor?' If I had been technically trained, I would have quit.

I believe it is cheaper than a Wolfman. Probably easier to acquire as well.

Not criticising the price just clarifying that it was $325 instead of $225. My Paradigm just cost more

I understood your post and wasn’t having a go at you, I was merely pointing out one razor that costs more. My Oneblade is another and there are others.
