Hi, all. I just started DE shaving, didn't have the greatest first experience, and was told that part of that is because I used a Merkur blade to begin with. There are a lot of blades out there and it is certainly confusing for a newbie, so I was hoping you gentlemen could recommend some good starting blades for me to try.
Note: I have a coarse beard (not plentiful, just thick individual hairs), sensitive skin, and issues with ingrown hairs on part of my neck (I think this is due to the fact that the hair in this region grows at a 5-degree angle to the skin - its ridiculously low).
I bought a sampler pack with the following blades in it and am interested in knowing which I should try, which I should ditch, and what other blades/sampler packs (from where) I should try out:
- Lord Platinum Class
- Feather Hi-Stainless
- Kai Stainless
- Merkur Super Platinum
- Wilkinson Sword Classic
It's already been suggested that I try Astra SPs and Sharks. What else should I try? Does anyone have any recommended sampler packs I should get?
