Week 4 blade tryout.
I have tried a couple of different blades recently, some Wilkinson Swords we had in the house and the Merkur that came with the Futur. I was hoping that the Wilkinson Swords might be an improvement over the Tesco blades that I had been using but there was no discernable difference. If anything I would say that they were not as good and left me having to make some tidy up passes.
I was about to change back to a Tesco today and remembered I had the Merkur blade. What a difference, not aggressive but I could really hear the hair coming off, all in all a very clean, comfortable shave.
So, the question is should I categorise the Merkur as being more aggressive or is it a better shave due to being made from platinum? What would be good to try next?
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.
