Next five reviews only cover the branded Rapira blades - noted for their good quality, moderate price, and accessibility. RAPIRA - Swedish Supersteel Razor: ATT H2 and M2 plates Shave #1 The mustache area shows significant resistance ATG, and theres a slight nick on my mustache. The rest of the shave was uneventful, except that the sharpness clearly wasnt close to GSB or Feather. In the end, the shave was a decent DFS. This blade would probably work better with a milder razor. Next time, Ill use the less aggressive M2 plate. Shave #2 Since moving to the M2 plate, shaving the mustache is much smoother - without sacrificing quality of shave. The mustache area isnt as smooth as Id expect from a top-tier blade, even after only two days use. Shave #3 Smooth, close, DFS shave. My best shave with this blade, so far. The blade is in its comfortable stage. Shave #4 More resistance on the mustache, and it takes longer to shave, but the results are DFS. Shave #5 Another good DFS shave, though the mustache is significantly harder to shave, this time. Used the more aggressive H2 plate. Shave #6 Still a very good DFS shave, though the problem areas - mustache and chin - are more difficult. Doesnt have the closeness from earlier shaves. On B&B, theres a common assumption: certain blades and razors complement" one another. If you have an aggressive razor, pair it with a more forgiving blade or at least, thats how the theory goes. The Rapira Swedish Supersteel isnt exactly Feather-sharp, so some would say its best to pair the blade with a more aggressive razor. Well, that strategy hasnt worked for me The Rapira Swedish Supersteel is moderately sharp, and lasts a little longer than many blades. Id begin with a moderately smooth razor and shave very lightly. At about $15 for 100 blades, its a decent value - but there are better values and blades, even in the mildly sharp category. The blade is probably suitable for an unaggressive razor.
