I was having lunch with a physician friend of mine this week and began discussing wetshaving. I thought he'd be interested if he didn't do it already. Turns out he has irritation issues and prefers an electric...so whatever. But as I described the blades I'm using and the fact that I can get about 7 good shaves from one blade, he asked if I had ever put them in the freezer. He said that by putting them in the freezer, I should get 9 shaves out of them, saying something about being dependent on what kind of heat treatment they've been through in the manufacturing process. He did his undergrad at MIT, and is one smart fella, so I'm going to try it. Just wondering if the fine folks of B&B have tried the same.
