My top blades:
Gillette Wilkinson Sword
Supermax Diamond Edge
Roughly in that order. I prefer the Wilkinson Sword because they are the perfect combo of sharp and smooth. They feel smoother than the Nacet to me, with the Nacet feeling a bit sharper. Dorco primes...
When it starts tugging or pulling my whiskers. That's the best sign that it's lost its edge. If a blade tugs right out of the wrapper, well, that's not a brand I'll use anymore.
I can't believe I put up with cartridges for so long. I rarely ever got a good shave. They all pulled and tugged...
Shaved with it tonight. Too mild for my tastes. Seemed even milder than my Weishi.
About half-way through the shave I put on the standard "V3" head and really enjoyed it. Got as good of a BBS as I've had in a while (using a German Wilkie). No irritation and no razor burn. Sitting here...
I would wager they were pulled because consumers always go for lower price over longevity. We're seeing it in the LED light market right now. All the older models with massive heatsinks and what not (that cost $15 or $20) simply didn't sell. So they are moving to cheap plastic bulbs with no...
Aluminum is good against general corrosion in mild environments. It has an oxide layer that forms as soon as it encounters water and this oxide layer protects it from further corrosion. So the anodized finish "wearing off" shouldn't be a concern.
However, like stainless steel, it's going to...
Yeah I checked last night and the .84 is available in radio knob ONLY. You apparently can't just buy the head right now. So for those of you with RAD, you can get the radio knob right now (or could last night).
Rapira Platinum Lux
Rapira Swedish Supersteel
Wilkinson Sword Classics (German)
Supermax Diamond Edge (love these blades personally).
Lord Platinums (haven't tried them but lots love them).
Polsilvers, Sputnik, Permasharp and other PPI Russian made blades are owned by...
So you think the .84 is equally as aggressive as the V3A? I am looking to upgrade from my V3A and was thinking about the .84, but I want to tone down the aggression a bit. If the .84 is equally as aggressive as the V3A, then I guess the .68 would be more up my alley?
I would go with titanium because of that metals' inherent corrosion resistance. If you're spending $200 I would want it to last a lifetime. Titanium is better than both SS and bronze in that regard, though it is lighter than both if that's something that concerns you.
Looking for something on the cheaper end. I want something that is more aggressive than a Weishi, but less aggressive than, say, a Maggard V3A. I was looking at the various Baili razors. Are they somewhere in between or are they as mild as a Weishi?
I am also thinking about picking up a Game...
I've been at this wet shaving game since the early Spring, so I am several months in. My first razor, like many, was the Van Der Hagen/Weishi TTO. I haven't touched it in months, but decided today I'd give it a go just to see how my opinion has changed if any. I tried a blade I haven't used...
The stainless used in the blades is a cheaper ferritic steel -- something like 430 Stainless. It's just iron and a chromium alloy (usually about 15% or so chrome). That type of steel isn't nearly as rust resistant as the austenitic steels (like the 300 series) which is what most SS razor...
Nacet and it's not close, at least on my face. I found the PolSilvers to be duller than I'd like. I was really disappointed.
As for 7 o'clocks it really depends on which one:
Greens - Permasharp (made in India) and Super Stainless (Made in Russia). Both come in a green package.
The standard Nacet stainlesss is a top tier blade I think for most people who've tried them (including me). They are great. The 100 pack I bought has Arabic writing on them so I am not able to make out where they're made (I assume made in Russia and just have a different language for the local...
I found them terrible. Think I gave them a 4/10 in my shaving notes, which was the lowest of all the blades I've tried (about 20 so far).
To be fair I only did one shave and only used one razor. As we all know, the razor head, blade gap, and angle all make a difference.
