I've only used one of those blades so far, but got nine uses out of it and that was about one too many. My other blades have also been eight good shaves. (As a reference, I get 3-4 good shaves from a typical DE blade, and then it's completely toast.)Hey @nicked78 & @molon_labe , how many shaves do you get on average with the Kai Milds? I am trying another one, and if I stay shallow (thanks again, @DaveHStone!), I can get some very comfy shaves. But regardless of SB or OC, the Vector is super efficient at removing all the lather, making an additional stroke an invitation for irritation. Thanks in advance!
I think I know what you're talking about when you say the Vector really sweeps your skin clear of lather. I must have gotten so used to it by now that I don't notice. On my final (touchup) pass, I squeeze the remaining lather out of my brush into my non-shaving hand and do quick reapplications of lather for each stroke. It's faster than putting the razor down and picking up my brush, giving me less excuse to shave dry skin. And boy, do I need help not being lazy.
