Tried a Tiger blade (ordered off the 'Bay) for the first time last night, in my trusty Black Standard. The shave was nothing short of brutal - the blade struggled and pulled through only 36 hours of growth, only the second time in my two years of DE shaving that I've experience this from a blade (a Shanghai-made Gillette Super Blue being my other disaster). The shave was so uncomfortable and inefficient, I ended up abandoning the blade quickly and finishing with my disposable Permatik. Wonder if others here have any recent experiences with the Tiger. Certainly an exotic-looking blade and the box looks like NOS, but I can't really tell. I'll give it one more go with a blade from another package (I have 10 sets of 10) and try another razor before giving up. Todd R.
