Best shave so far with Perma Sharp blade

Since returning to DE shave a couple months ago, I've been working my way through different samples. I'm very happy I upgraded to the Parker Variant. This morning I used a Perma-Sharp blade for the first time. Wow! I have to say that this was my best shave so far. I used a Kai blade for the last few days and that was also very good, but the Perma-Sharp was very smooth and sharp. I have a very coarse beard. I have some spots on my neck that are next to impossible to get smooth. Perma-Sharp did a really good job getting at those spots. It was as close to BBS as I've gotten so far. Definitely BBS on most spots. I still need to try Personna Red and some of the Rapira blades in the pack. But I would definitely say that Perma Sharp has been the best that I've tried for my beard so far.
 
Nice! It's always fun trying something new and not having it go badly.

Just be careful with the Perma Sharps, they can be short lived. With my tough beard, and low cost, I would bin it after 2 shaves max. They get sharper which is when they get dangerous. Try out a Nacet, they are meant for people with tough beards and made in the same factory. If you want sharp and long lasting, try BIC plats or Wizamets.
 
I got 15 shaves out of my last Perma-Sharp.
Usually get as many out of a BIC, last BIC only lasted 8 shaves.
Haven't used a Nacet since last year, binned it after 12 shaves.

I’m a big fan of the PermaSharp blade. Bin it if you feel tugging, blades are too inexpensive to suffer a rough shave when you can just throw in a new blade.

Blade preference is very individual and subjective. Keep track of the ones you like. Some razor and blade combos work amazingly well and then you grab a different razor and your go to blade and it’s not the match made in heaven that you thought it would be. No problem grab a different blade.
 
The Perma-Sharp name can be used for:

or

It's hard to tell which one people are referring to sometimes.

Thanks so much for your Nacet recommendation! First shave was good. Second shave today was even better. Only one nick in both shaves. Very smooth. I like it a lot so far. Could be a new go to blade for me. Thanks again!
