From sharp to less sharp. BIC astra derby, Gillette platinum…What blades have you tried? I have no problem shaving ATG as a 3rd pass with any of my vintage Gillettes. Those include assorted Techs and a couple of TTO Slims. I generally use Astra SP, 7 o'clock Yellow or, occasionally, BIC Chrome blades. I can't shave my top lip ATG with a crappy TTO, like my Wilkinson Sword metal classic (aka Weishi 9306-P) or anything else with poor blade rigidity. I've also had great success lately ATG with thick cap Old Types (1920's).
