Neither is great. If you like carts (a lot) get the leaf. Twig doesn't shave very well for me, for some reason not close enough and burning.....might be the blades I have used.... precut from a....n and a nacet
As with any razor, YMMV. My experiences with my recently obtained Leaf Twig are very positive. BBS in my case and a very smooth ride using a Gillette silver blue blade. Due to its ergonomics I can easily reach and shave my trouble spots (nose and chin) and absolutely no nicks or irritation. I am about to rotate some different blades in the twig and am curious what differences I will notice.
10-15 days is a ton of hair that will clog any multi-blade system. Besides "boring," how does the Leaf work for you with only a few days growth? I had the opportunity to try a Leaf for the first time last week, and I was quite pleased with its efficiency. Very smooth cue ball result, but I rarely go beyond 2 days.
I have a Twig and it’s almost too easy. I’ve only used a handful of blades in it and all of them have worked well. I see the Leaf as a completely different animal only tangentially related. I can’t imagine it feels or functions anything like the Twig.
I use them both, Leaf for the 3 pass and then the twig for under the nose.
I have very coarse beard growth, and love these razors. If I use any other single blade razor regardless the setting on a fatboy,
I get the razor burn bad. I have tried so many ways to avoid it but they always leave me
with the 'red' neck on the way to work. I never have this issue with the Leaf.
Newbie to safety razors. Seeking a razor for head shaves. Seems I'm going round in circles. Research comes up with LEAF as the easiest head-shave. No blood & little skill or concentration needed. But not cheap. Several threads espousing the LEAF are often swamped with declarations that the TWIG is the preferred goto for head-shaving for many rather than the LEAF.
Now i don't know what box to tick on the order form. Comments plz.
