I was shaving today with the usual Futur/Lord combination and finished up a couple of rough spots with my Schick Hydro and had the weirdest sensation..
Schick Hydro/Gillette Fusion is like a level 1 dagger, i could barely harm a rat with it.
Merkur HD is like a bastard sword.
Merkur Futur is a level 99 Dragon Slayer.
Sorry about the analogy, hope someone gets a kick out of it.
