Somewhat new to wet shaving, trying to pick blades, brushes, creams, etc is disconcerting.
Hence: The Double-Edge Double Elimination Tournament!!!
Click "Download" and then "Open" and you will see the page at its best---the Open button on the google docs page seems to mess up the document a bit. Its a Word doc---maybe someone can help me make this work better.
I've put 7 blades from Jarrod's sampler on a double elimination bracket. (I found the Wilkinsons at WalMart yesterday!)
I give each blade 3-4 shaves, one of which must be in the shower (my test of forgivingness---and I like to shave there).
I am only judging on feel and performance---not durability. I'm not giving a numerical score (though you could come up with a method to assign points).
So far, as you can see, Dorco has pushed Big Ben down to the loser's bracket. But...Ben will have a chance to grind it out through the loser's bracket. I'm currently shaving with the Derby Extra, which will face Astra Platinum's here in the second bracket.
The great thing is...there's a "game" every day!
Hope this is fun. You could set this up for soap, cream, brushes---you name it. If you look online you can get printable brackets for almost any type of tournament arrangement.
