Ew. Just... ew.
I've been using a DE since March with a sample of 10 different kinds of blades. My Astra blades came up early, so I marked the lousy shaves I got with that first blade to lack of experience.
Today, I tried the second blade. The first shave had more blood than I'm comfortable with. I'll give the blade one more shot, then if I still don't like it, I'm disposing of the remaining three blades. Bleh.
Merkur 38C, Simpson Colonel X2L, Col Conk Almond just now, and one last Wilkinson Sword.
