I’m not who you asked but I like KAI blades in vintage Techs and my Red Tip. Similar to Feathers as they are both very sharp.I just got Kai blades and I haven’t used one. I heard they’re wider so they will make your razors more aggressive. Do these work well in vintage Gillette razors or does it ruin the shave in your opinion?
Thank you that definitely helps. I don’t have a Red Tip but I’m waiting for an Aristocrat set. I believe it’s a 1946-47 but I’m new to vintage Gillette razors so I’m not sure. I’ve heard it said it’s similar in aggression to the Red TipI’m not who you asked but I like KAI blades in vintage Techs and my Red Tip. Similar to Feathers as they are both very sharp.
KAIs are a touch wider but 9/1000’s of an inch is almost negligible. It is just another really sharp blade IMO.

|Comments||It’s Wednesday so out comes the Wolfman. The blade is a Personna Medical Prep blade for the second use. The brush is the B&B Essential Boar, 10th Anniversary version. It’s too bad these brushes are no longer available. They were lather ready right out of the box. A great lather, a great shave, and hopefully we all have a great day!!!|
