I received my Weber DLC in the mail several days ago. I measured its blade gap as 21 thousandths of an inch, which is smaller than the 24 thou listed in the Blade Gap table. As I have tested my other 11 DE razors with Gillette Super Thin blades and Trumper's cream, I put a new Super Thin into the Weber, lathered up with the Trumpers, and started to shave. I was mystified - the razor wasn't cutting anywhere near close enough. I tried varying angles but to no avail. The blade wasn't dragging like a dud blunt one would. So I gave up and finished off with my till then gentlest razor, my 1956 Tech. I didn't test the Weber the next day, as I had a sanguine adventure with the XD20 Sanguine shavette that arrived in the mail that day. Today I put a Feather blade into the Weber, and the result was the gentlest, mildest wet shave I've ever had - and that is in comparison to the other 11 DE razors and six or seven cartridge razors I've used. I had to apply some pressure to get the result, a bit like with cartridge razors. The shave was pretty close, though I think other DE razors get a tiny bit closer. When I applied the alum block, I didn't feel any little stings from micro nicks the way I typically feel them with other blades. So I'm scratching my head as to what to make of the Weber. Has it been designed as the mildest, least aggressive razor on the market? Which requires the sharpest of blades for it to work in that fashion? Or is the intent that it be a DE razor that has the feel of a cartridge razor? I can't imagine anyone with a heavy beard wanting to use it. On the other hand I can't imagine anyone being able to nick themselves with it either, making it very handy for use when recovering from a nasty shave session - no need to revert to electric. And it would certainly be handy for wearing in blades that are initially too sharp or too unforgiving on other razors. Has anybody else had a similar experience or feeling using a Weber DLC? Regards, Renato P.S. I have an UPDATE on page 3 of the posts, describing how I used a another Super Thin blade, and got the same result in the Weber as with the first Super Thin. P.P.S I have Update 2 on page 3 describing how in a side by side shave the Weber DLC with Feather blade did not shave as close as my 1956 Gillette Tech with Gillette Super Thin blade.
