    Default Used Doroco blade for the first time

    Used a blade from a sample I got a while back. During the first pass it felt like it was pulling every hair out. I almost tossed it. The Next passes were a little better. It was not the worst shave I have ever had but should I even use it again. I had it in my slim set to 4. Should I try it in a super speed or my Merku HD?

    "Blade n razor" combo is the matching idea..usually an aggressive razor needs a mild blade...and visa versa

    So is this blade considered an aggressive one?

    Dorco blades are definitely on the mild side. A more aggressive razor (or setting) would probably improve the performance.

    Which Dorco? For me there is a world of difference between the 300's and the 301's. 300's I really like and the 301's just don't seem to work for me. On a scale of over all aggressiveness I would put the Dorco's about mid pack.
