I'm looking for some guidance here... I've been using the Merkur HD with Merkur platinum blades for a couple of months now... I'm getting a great shave and I feel I've "mastered" this setup. No nicks, etc.
However- as we all know, we're all looking to the next thing. So yesterday I place three orders. Here's what I'll be receiving:
Swedish Gillette blades
Israeli Super + blades
I'm ready to switch it up a bit, but I'm not sure what my next step is without slicing my face off. I ordered the Swedish Gillettes because they're supposedly superior to the Merkur blades but not as close as the Feathers; I ordered the Israelis because I read that they're similar to the Merkur blades but much, much cheaper.
I ordered the Feathers because I'm interested in seeing just how close they are, but I probably won't use them for months to come.
I ordered the Futur because I figured it's a good compromise between the Feather blades in my HD... So I'm thinking I'll try the Futur with Merkur or Swedish blades as my next step?
Any suggestions based on your own experiences?
