I seem to be getting unusual results compared with most others here. Over all I get better results with the "sharp" brands but I'm getting very inconsistent results pretty much no matter what.
feather: sharp but not smooth. mild irritation.
astra sp: not quite as sharp but not too smooth.
gillette yellow: pretty decent
big Ben: dull garbage
personna store brand (Kroger): sharp but not smooth, fairly irritated
shark super chrome: doesn't seem sharp at all - more passes= irritation
and then along comes...
...Lord Platinum: wow. super close, smooth, irritation free. Feels sharp and smooth. Dirt cheap.
How can this be? I think everybody seems to think that Lords are a very middle of the pack blade. I don't get it. For me my mileage seems to vary quite a bit.
