The thrill of the hunt is just too much for me to fight. I like longer handled razors due to my recent and permanent hand injury and the KRONA's handle length and shape appeal to me.
Giving all of the individual parts, joints and corners a thorough scrubbing is super important because there is likely built up hair, soap and dead skin lurking in places that may be unseen without a deeper look. I find the Krona slightly more aggressive than the Sticky and it is a reasonably forgiving razor.
Our experience with safety razors also tells us that the blade lasts longer when these steps are followed as well. The Feather shaves close, but I prefer a little more heft. The ones with a blue tip at the end of the handle are more gentle, ones with a black tip were average, and ones with a red tip were more aggressive.

Opt out any time. Is that what you guys have krona dating or am I mistaken? I'm about half way through putting together a write up, but my camera died and I'm waiting for a new one to arrive.
And I believe that Schick made at least one gold plated model as well. Regrettably, that long, thin handle that is tapered at the top would not be comfortable for me.
There were krona dating minor variations of this razor. I bought a bunch of Supermax Titanium blades and the Krona is the only razor so far I care to use them in.

Installed a Gillette 7 day blade. The metal-tipped Krona will be a tad more aggressive than the plastic-tipped, at least in my experience. There may be others, but I just bought these two versions a few days ago. I put it in the same class as the Super Speed, nice smooth shave but not as close as I would like.
Both of mine are great shavers though. I have 2 Schick Kronas. If that sounds like fun, why not sign up and join in? Your name or email address: I dont remember seeing any codes.
The older I get the more I realize how little I actually know. Starting a cleaning routine that takes places every few weeks is another great way to care for your safety razor.
