What razor blade did you use today? How many days?

Well it's a ymmv thing, but I can say that much that I have by no means angel whiskers, would guess they are classified as medium to upper medium.
But I guess that I have fine tuned my technique, plus I almost always shave after a really hot shower. Almost always three passes.

Are you really, really sure that they are done after 2-4 shaves?
For me almost all blades start to feel better after 2-3 shaves.
I mean, I might be throwing them out before I need to. The moment I start to feel the smoothness decline, I chuck it. I figure though that since blades are so cheap anyway and I have hundreds, I can just use them at their smoothest and not trouble myself with it.

Of course, they are cheap and there's no right or wrong. Just keep doing that if that works best.
But for me I find the blades actually get smoother and more comfortable after a couple or three shaves. Then they hold on for quite a while.
