My first win on a pif was the Croma blades. Goby thank you for the blades. I used my Mama Bears soap, Badger brush, and Fat Boy set on 3. I lathered up after a good hot shower, nice and sudsy slick. I set my razor on 3 and loaded up a croma and did my normal 3 pass shave and it was not horrible but not my favorite blade but far from worst blade. I will see what happens with my next two uses for my normal three uses for a blade maybe blade 2 will get blade set from 3 up to 4 or 5.
