I have been wanting to try the Bic in my tech and wanted to know what kind of results others were having with this blade
My feelings exactly. Bic's are in my top 3 blades.I love them, finding them very sharp and smooth with good longevity. They are also reasonably priced. On the forums, it seems to be a "love it or hate it" type of blade, for reasons unknown. I have to scratch my head when people say they pull and tug, cut them to pieces, feel rough, etc. Totally opposite from my experience.
I recently bought 100 Bics. Very sharp and very smooth. If you are into smooth blades, the Bic is a must. Covers the sharper end of what I consider to be the smoothest blades...
As I was saying earlier, "love it or hate it." How it is possible for the same brand of blades to have such diametrically opposed opinions is beyond me.For me the WORST blade I have bought......rough.....jumps and doesn't cut. Pulls hairs out. Same for my bro. We tossed them
One possibility is there are counterfeits on the market and the complaints fall on those blades without the person complaining knowing. There are for other DE blade brands so no reason that Bic blades may not have the same problem depending the vendor. Other possibility they could be complaining about the Bic Astor blades which are completely different from the Bic Chrome Platinum blades.As I was saying earlier, "love it or hate it." How it is possible for the same brand of blades to have such diametrically opposed opinions is beyond me.
