What's new

The Eye Test. King C Gillette and other P&G blades.

I'm a daily shaver also. In the past I used to take weekends off. But when I switched over to double edge razors back in June of 2019 I started shaving everyday to make sure I got the hang of it. And I have not taken a day off since.

I always do three passes and some touch-ups around my chin. I have a mole of my chin so I shave that area very carefully.
The beard tugging must be related to the toughness of the beard hair then. I guess my old man white whiskers aren't as tough as I thought that they were.

I received a King C Gillette blade today sent from forum member @Bill_G. I have taken a 200x photo and I am going to post it with other P&G Russian blades for comparison. Unfortunately I don't have any Gillette Platinum, Minora or Permasharp blades.

I think the Nacet blade looks the best. The one time I used one I was impressed.
 
Just wanted to update this thread on my experience with the 4 Wizamet blades I received from @South Dakota Guy .
The first time I used these blades I was rewarded with 3 good shaves before I tossed the blade. But lately I started using the other blades I have left & have been rewarded with 7 great shaves from theses blades. Maybe they worked better on my 34C than the Muhle R89 I used initially. In fact my 34C & 33C have become my favorite razors over my stainless GC.

But I've been also getting 7 great shaves from the KCG blades, Nacets & the Astras SS. Considering I bought 100 Astra SS from Amazon for $8.97 & 100 Nacets for $13.49 I find it hard to justify the price of the Wizamet. BUT the Wizamets are definitely great blades & might be buying more in the near future.
