I have nothing with which to compare it... I looking forward to the experiment..... I love my AC SE, as most people who read the new threads know, but I'm open to trying something new. It's sort of exciting.
My Slim is one of my most comfortable razors when set at #4, so it will be interesting to see if it is still just as comfortable with a Kai instead of a Gillette Platinum.There is aninteresting idea. I am going to try Kia in my slim. I like my slim set at 6 or 7 with a GSB.
You don't need to spend a lot of many buying the most aggressive razor in the world. Just remove the base plate from a three piece razor. See this thread.Like mentioned in post #5 you do not get the full .0045 of inch per side because the razor blade is bent in a arc so you will lose some width, the extra width is nothing over the top to worry about IMO. The Kai blade is just a good solid performer and hopefully you enjoy it in your milder razors or just love blade feel like a lot of seasoned shavers do. We had one fellow who wanted the most aggressive DE razor ever made and spent lots of time and $ pursuing that goal.
Not for me shaving like that, just pushing your luck and not much fun at all using a flimsy de blade not clamped properly. Living on the edge of a blade giving it lots of respect knowing it will bite at any time gets me worn out for a shave.You don't need to spend a lot of many buying the most aggressive razor in the world.

Hi all. I saw a viewer comment on a geofatboy video - this viewer claimed that he uses a safety razor without base plate for the 1st pass, then re attaches the base plate for subsequent passes. I think in his case the razor was a Merkur 15C, but I'm not sure razor model would matter too much...www.badgerandblade.com
Have you been able to give the Kai a go in a Fatip? I am curious to know if it will work in say the Gentile (or actually OC because I find that to be smoother).I've never used Kai blades but I ordered a Fatip razor from Pasteur yesterday and ordered a tuck as well.
I've always been curious because I read about them being wider. Instead of using in anything mild, I actually want to try them in my aggressive razors to see the results. I've only got 2 mild razors left since my preference are the aggressive ones. But those wont get tested with the Kai's!
No I haven't. I still have the tuck sitting there and haven't tried them on anything. I've been playing around with my vintage razors this week. But I'll probably try them out in the Gentile since it's the mildest of the Fatip's. I don't think I'd use them on the OC since that one is efficient enough with the blades that I normally use (Gillette Platinums). Good idea!Have you been able to give the Kai a go in a Fatip?
