    Which cartridge razor did you use today and how many shaves?

    After 20 great shaves on a Dorco Twin that Blade was done, so today it’s the phenomenally sharp Kai KII (1)

    Kai K-II

    Any good?

    Kai K-II

    It cost me just under £6.50 shipped. Fairly pricey for what it is but then real quality for sure. And who knows how long those Kai blades can last?

    Kai K-II

    Anybody tried the Kai K-II? Mine arrived yesterday. The cartridges aren’t Trac II compatible so you’re stuck with the lightweight OEM handle but as you’d expect it’s beautifully packaged.

    Personna Apache Flexx 2

    Just picked this Personna Apache Flexx 2 up from AliExpress - a cheapy remake of the Schick Pivot but actually the handle is not bad for lightweight plastic. It’s certainly a lot classier than the Vector. Along with the standard Atra compatible twin blade carts it came with an Atra compatible...

    Atra vs Dorco twin vs Personna Twin Pivot Plus

    Contour/Atra is my favourite system too. I’ve got a few vintage Contour carts (which were made in the factory right by my old school while I was actually sat in the school!). I got 21 shaves from the last one and it could have gone further, and I also have vintage Wilkinson II carts (which are...

    Cien 2 blade razor

    Just as an update to cheap UK carts it looks like the Superdrug disposable twin blades also fit the Atra/Contour system. They’re 70p for 10 which is even cheaper than the Ciens. The Superdrug twin blades are made by Personna. So now for Atra/Contour compatible carts I can get Cien...

    Thanks - turns out my razor is the same as Dorco TG-II/ Pace 2/ DSC Humble Twin. And I agree that the Bic Flex 2 was pretty harsh on the first shave.

    Dollar General Twin Blade “Disposable System”

    Gosh yes - are they still available? Turns out this is also the same razor as the Dollar Shave Club Humble Twin.

    Dollar General Twin Blade “Disposable System”

    Used a Schick Ultra+X handle although the OEM blue plastic one is OK too. Very smooth and comfortable but not as sharp as the other twin carts I’ve used. Turns out this is actually a rebranded Dorco TG-II / Pace 2. Very nice!

    Which cartridge razor did you use today and how many shaves?

    Dollar General Twin (1)for me on Schick Ultra+X handle. So are the Dorco Twin and the DG Twin the same blade? It came with 6 cartridges and a blue and white plastic handle so it’s like the Dorco equivalent of the Bic Flex 2 I guess. Very very smooth and comfortable shave (much smoother than the...
