Hello everyone. I am a normal Gillette Tech and Lord Merkur Tech user who has sensitive skin. I read on the forums where the Gillette SS is highly favored and loved....and I just happen to have one so I thought I would try it. First off, I have not heard of a Big Ben blade. The only thing I know about Big Ben is a 1975 Williams pinball machine that I use to play. The blade felt harsh to me. I could feel the blade, yet I did not get razor burn after the shave. I did not feel comfy with it...like I was waiting to get cut. LOL :) Is it the blade or the razor or the combo of both that seems harsh? I like the gentleness of the Tech.
