La Grosse Jaune...

hey guys,

I have a La Grosse Jaune in the mail as we speak. Any comments on how to approach it? Does it need a modified technique or any type or?

Thanks!

Congrats! Is this a special order from Ardennes? Are they mining La Grosse Jaune again? I'd love to get one for myself.

Can't help with the technique question, sorry.

Thanks! It's actually from a fellow member. Hopefully it will get it this week! Can't wait!

Cheers,

I picked up a LGJ from superiorshave when Jarrod released 2 bouts. I've been using it for the past 10 days or so and can say it is very consistent. I use pressure as I normally do coming off my chosera 1K for the first 2-3 dilutions. I then progressively lighten up on the pressure to the point where I'm just using the weight of the razor at the end of my dilutions.

Mine leaves a very mellow edge, but lately I've been going to my vintage thuringian I picked up recently that I think leaves me a tad closer shave.

It definitely has become my favorite coticule though as the size of the bout is almost perfect for me.
