I am taking my first baby steps into DE shaving and wondered if anyone had ideas on the approach I should take when selecting which razor blade to start with.
I have a EJ de86bl arriving in a couple of days as well as a sample pack of blades containing the following:
Astra Superior Platinum (5)
Crystal Platinum (10) - Israeli Personna, Super + Platinum
Derby Extra (5)
Feather New Hi-Stainless (10)
Gillette 7 o’clock Sharp Edge (5)
LORD Platinum Chrome (5)
Personna Platinum Chrome (10) - ‘Red Personna, Israeli Reds’
Shark Super Chrome (5)
Wilkinson Sword Double Edge (5)
Should I take a random approach to which blades to try first?
Are there any that I shouldn't even bother with?
Should I use each blade only once to help the comparison?
Is it too early to make comparisons as I will be on a learning curve about shaving technique anyway?
Is there anything else I should consider?
