What's new

Do you find it hard to go back to milder razors after using aggressive ones regularly?

Interesting. I used to shave daily with an R41 without the oft-reported blood and gore. Just got comfortable, no-drama shaves.

Then I grew a beard, which I kept for about a year. On returning to shaving, I found the R41 intolerable no matter what blade I used. It didn't threaten me so much as it pained me. Way too tuggy. So I started switching to milder razors (Feather AD-D2, Mamba 70, eg.), with no reduction in closeness or efficiency. They are my daily drivers now, and are even able to handle several days' growth.

Go figure.
