(this poll)


Thank you!
Shawnsel
 
With what razor blade?
Please assume that each razor is used with an "average blade". The rational is that this poll will result in a summary something along the lines of: "usually, the average Razor X is more (or equally) aggressive than/to the average Razor Y for the average shaver".

Please just reply back if this makes you want to change your vote.


Thanks,
Shawnsel
 
This poll closes tomorrow! Currently we only have 5 votes, so any extra votes could make a big difference and definitely help to increase our confidence in this poll! Please vote if you have experience with both razors.
 
Final results:
Merkur open comb has 5 votes
Feather Popular has 1 vote
Equally aggressive has no votes


Conclusion:
The average Merkur open comb razor head is more aggressive than the average Fether Popular ... to the average shaver ... with an average handle (on the Merkur OC) and an average blade.


Thank you to all who voted!


Cheers,
Shawn
