What criteria do you guys use to call a blade sharper than another?
Let me explain. All the blades I've tried feel almost the same with a few feeling a little better than the others as long as I'm shaving WTG. And basically I can get a decent shave from any of them.
Now switch over to doing an against the grain shave and it's a whole different story.
I used a feather that already had 3 shaves on it and it felt great and left smooth skin as a result.
I used a brand new Astra which I always thought was a nice sharp blade and it pulled and dragged and was pretty uncomfortable.
So when you guys are posting about how sharp a blade is are you counting ATG too or just WTG and XTG?
