Glad to hear!!Fourth and Fifth shave with the 7 O'clock Super Platinum report
Fourth shave was with the Slim Adjustable set at 7 for the first pass WTG and dialed back to 5 for the second pass ATG/XTG and third pass for touch ups. As stated in my last report on this blade, I changed up the soap and went with Stirling Scots Pine Sheep. I had a very enjoyable DFS with no nicks, weepers, or irritation. I have one area on my neck that I almost always seem to have a little tugging regardless of the blade and it was minimal on this shave. I would give this one a 9/10
Fifth shave was with the same razor again only this time I dialed it in to 7 and left it there for the whole shave. Same soap this time as well. The shave was very comparable to the last only maybe jus ta tiny bit smoother. another 9 or maybe even a 9.5/10. I might note that I had no chattering with either of these shaves so I am thinking that I may have been in error when lathering the CBL soap or that it just isn't as slick as the Scots Pine Sheep.
I think for the next shave or two I am going to load the blade in a new to me pre-war fat handled Tech.

By all means everyone has their own way.
But I'll share what I used to do with blades in rotation.
I would start them mild razors, then as I used them for more shaves I would move them to more aggressive razors as they started to feel a bit dull. Not that you have to try this, just some food for thought.
I'd start in a tech or superspeed or 34c or DE89 type, then move to slants, then move it to the aggressive OC I have.
Just another idea to try.
Some blades only work well for me in some razors.
Glad to see you trying different razors with them too. In the end, some blades just don't work with some people/faces.
