A generous B&B'r PIF'd these blades which I've never tried. I need to qualify my results today by noting that I just came off of (3) very good - but not GREAT - shaves with a Perma-sharp Super blade but I performed those shaves on a sun burned face that I got skieing over the weekend. I point that out because today was the first day since then that my skin and facial hair felt "normal" again.
I'll run with each blade for (2) shaves before having my son make the secret change. As usual, I'm using a 2011 R41 Razor, Bigelow cream, & Clubman AS.
First shave with the #1 blade this morning was Excellent. Very sharp andefficient on my easy WTG strokes with no skipping, dragging, or tugging. ATG passes were also without dragging or tugging and the blade worked great on the areas of my face and neck that often challenge lower quality blades.
I got a few weepers but all disapeared with a cold water splash. My Clubman splash produced mild to medium sting/burn and a litte lingering irritation that is now gone 2.5 hrs after my shave.
The results are better than my previous (3) shaves with the Perma-sharp. I only hesitate saying it's better or sharper than Perma-sharp because of the sunburn variable I was working with on the previous shaves. Otherwise I woud say it's a distinctly sharper blade.
