Zorrik! Blade of Champions!

with 4 comments

There’s something about the name Zorrik that brings to (my) mind comic-book superheroes, and it certainly is a good blade—so far. Stainless rather than carbon steel, but for me it has the same characteristics as the Treet Blue Special (which is carbon steel): sharpness combined with smoothness and a disinclination to nick. This first shave is extremely promising, so I’ll be using it over the next few days.

I used familiar—tried and true—prep and razor. The wonderful D.R. Harris shaving soap (Arlington, in this case), the G.B. Kent BK4 shaving brush, the combination resulting in (again) an exceptional lather. Then the Edwin Jagger Georgian with the Zorrik blade.

As noted above: very smooth, easy shaving because it’s quite sharp, and no inclination to nick or cut. Excellent results, and I finished with Floid Blue aftershave, which comes in a wonderfully stout glass container.

I got the Zorrik (along with some other new brands to try) from Razor and Brush, where they run 20¢ a blade—not bad.

  1. The Yin/Yang lithograph also makes the Zorrick a nice modern collectable
    if there’s any RWB collectors in the audience. Heck, at the price, cache away a FP

  4. You can also get the Zorrik blades from http://www.encure.us use the buy 3 get 1 free deal. It turns out to be much cheaper, not sure how it is calculated, but in the end you can get a 100 blades for around $9.00! Shipping is free too so you can’t beat the deal.
