I have been DE shaving for about a month now and have really enjoyed the experience and the shaves. I settled on the derby blades to get my technique sorted and to reduce the variables. The shaves were really good and the more i shaved the better the shaves were getting, e.g closer with less irritation.
I changed blades after three shaves to be on the safe side, so the other day i fired in a new derby and went along with my usual pre shave routine, completed my first pass n washed lather off my face, i must have removed about 2 whiskers, as my face was identical to before my first pass, i thought i would try again with the same blade just to give it a chance, incase it was my techniques fault. 2nd pass, again no noise from shave, and no whiskers removed. I was gutted as i can only do 3 passes or i get irritation. So i put in a crystal blade and did my 3rd pass and it did a really good job. wasnt a great shave because there was really only 1 WTG pass, but it was presentable with an electric touch up the next morning.
I was really just wondering if any1 else has had this experience, n whether i should stick with derbys.
