Super-Max

Item Description

Thanks to Michael (NMMB) for the Super-Max blades but without wishing to seem ungrateful I don't think I'll be using another. I have got to the stage that I can pick up almost any DE razor and get good results, I doubt this is the case with a Super-Max blade. The initial (with the grain) shave was great, no pulling or irritation at all, the next pass went ok (diagonally across the grain) a couple of weepers but noting too bad. At this point the blade appeared to be blunt, something like a Wilkinson after seven shaves. I went across the grain at 90 degrees from the last pass and I seemed to start pulling my face apart, weeper after weeper particularly in the areas under the corners of my mouth. I didn't bother with a T&C pass, my face was feeling pretty sore.

The alum block demonstrated how much damage I did, it stung like crazy initially, I applied some Skin Fod and even 10-15 minutes later my face hadn't recovered, It felt like pins being pushed into my face. I put the Nivea on next to stop this uncomfortable feeling, it sort of worked.

Blades selection is very subjective. What's good for me might be awful for someone else and I hope these blades suit someone, not me though!

They're cheap at about £7 for 100 on ebay, the packaging is the standard whit DE blade box (Same as Derby use with the hidden blade vault).

Vidyut Super-Max Super Stainless. I am able to get 1 1/2 shaves from these. All of the problems have been listed in other posts so I will not be redundant with my comments. I have 14 of these left and in 14 days they will be gone for good.

I use these blades with my usual routine bath/shower, trumpers limes skin food, palmolive or proraso cream, EJ badger brush, flare tip rocket, cold rinse, alum, cold rinse, proraso cream, Turkish high alcohol splash.

I get a smooth comfortable shave from 3 passes WTG,XTG and ATG + touch up on the tricky places.

These blades have been slated on here but I do not think they are as bad as they are made out to be and looking at comments made on them around the net there is a growing number of shavers who like them.

I like them and rate them as good as my IP red pack personna blades so for me that puts them in the go to blade camp.

As for the ratings put up top marks for price I like a bargin,

Quality no glue spots, no rust,

Sharpness I got BBS with them what more can you want?

Longevity well this will change from person to person I get my 3 shaves out of it so it passes for me I do not go further than that with any blade I use.

Smoothness of shave no tugs or irritation. I class nicks and cuts as user error.

Packaging well they come in a cardboard box each blade is double wrapped so top marks for less plastic going into earth other blade makers take note less is more. and for those of you worried about the safety of that get on the bay and bag an antique blade holder reusable, safe and better for the enviroment.
