I first thank those here on B & B that have given me blades, soaps and even razors. It is time for me to give back. I therefore announce the Razor Blade Test PIF. I am looking to give two people each 14 blades -- two of seven different brands. The brands are listed below:
1. Treet Dura Sharp
4. Astra Platinum
5. Astra Stainless
The rules are simple. The first two people to respond in the affirmative to this thread will receive the blades as long as they live in either the US (including Alaska or Hawaii) or Canada (which includes the higher cost territories such as Nunavut). The recipients will be asked to shave with at least one of the blades from each brand sent and post the results on this thread (good, bad or ugly) or the Blade Poll thread where I first announced that I was going to do this. Pictures are NOT required. As there are seven brands, that would entail at least seven posts. I apologize for having to limit the PIF to the US or Canada but postage for something like this to an outside country is very high (post to Nunavut is high enough at well over a dollar, post to - for example Singapore or Australia - is higher yet by at least three times). Respond quick to get the blades! I also thank the winners in advance for their cooperation.
