Tried one yesterday in a Frankenrazor with an R41 base plate and a Razorock SLOC cap. Lots of great blade feel but lots of weepers. My neck looked like I'd been shot several times at medium range with .22 bird shot. The first pass was fine. Getting down to BBS lost me a pint or so of blood. I felt like I should have had some orange juice and a cookie when I was done.But they add some fun
Lol. I’m sure you’ve already learned a lot on your journey and you are taking the time to share what you’ve learned with us. B&B continues to assist us all along the way……I learn from people who joined today as well as from seasoned shaving masters. One or two people have even enjoyed my own wandering musings, to borrow from one of the shave masters here: @AimlessWanderer .Are you including me in this accusation of wisdom? You take that back!
I would say based on my lack of appreciation for many peoples favorites. They would be wasted on me.What if it’s better than everything else?
Tried to be the devil but I failed. Your conviction is too strong!I would say based on my lack of appreciation for many peoples favorites. They would be wasted on me.
In all seriousness. This is not a hobby for me. I just need a good shave, 7 days a week. It was cheap enough to try a bunch of blades and find what I like. So I did. Now that I have, I am done exploring blades.
I wrote up my findings as a way of giving back to this forum, that I have learned so much from.
I have a unscented soap review coming in a couple months. I will stick with my top 2 favorites going forward.
That will be about it for this type of "big write up post" thing from me.
As a general rule, I do not buy more stuff than I need. I have a razor I like. A travel brush and at home brush I like. I make my own aftershave.
I will be a disappointingly lackluster consumer of shaving goods after this.
The first time I used them I thought they were amazing. The second time they felt different, not as consistent. QC may be the problem.Nah. I am too, lazy.
Throw it in here... how you like them Bic blades?
I really think so. The Henson is good at what it is designed to do. It is also pretty particular in what works for it.Just wondering if the blades were used in different razors, if that would have an affect on the grading you used.
