I've contacted a disease, I did'nt think it would happen so fast - RAD - to be exact. Been reading the threads about DEs and decided I had to have one. Ordered a HD but it was out of stock, so I let the order stand and also ordered a Futur. Being impatient, I went to my fathers house and rummaged around his old saving stuff and found a Gillette slim adjustable and a pack of Personna blades. Shaved with it last night - set the blade to 2 and had a very comfortable shave. Am eagerly awaitng the arrival of my razors and sample pack of blades.
Now come the questions;
1 - Have read a lot about the poor quality of some of the Merkur razors, hopefully this is behind them now.
This is one of my pet peeves with businesses that become popular and then to keep up with the demand QC falls by the way side. I would prefer to be told there is a wait and the quality of the product to be superior.IMHO
2 - When you mention BBS is that in all directions or only WTG?
My shaves of late have been BBS with the grain but with a little stubble against the grain. Is this the way it is or is my technique off?
