I had the same problem. Any razor that's efficient enough is usually too mild. The ones that are efficient are too aggressive.Like many, I have very tough facial hair, and have to use an efficient razor to be able to get a BBS in 3 passes. I simply cannot again BBS with, say, an R89, without significant buffing and the resultant irritation. Unfortunately I have very sensitive skin!
That being said, most razors efficient enough to get the job done are too aggressive for me. The iKon tech, for example, while a masterpiece of efficiency, will cause significant irritation if I use it on multiple days in a row.
So the result is that I have been through, I'd guess, nearly 100 razors in the quest to find one that combines efficiency with gentleness.
So far I have only found two razors that do the trick: the PAA Ascension Stainless, and the RS10 aggressive plate. I love everything about the RS10, but the PAA gets me a closer shave with a wider selection of blades.
I know there must be others in my situation. So o am curious: for those of you out there with a tough beard and sensitive skin, what razors have worked well to give you a BBS shave that you can do on a daily basis?
