Why are my blades dull by the end of the shave?
Lately the blades I've used, drugstore's chrome platinum, and stainless steel, among others - by the end of the shave, effective they are not. I can understand the aforementioned blades, but my Gillette Swedes? My Feathers? I have the Progress, and by the end of the shave, regardless of the blade, I'm crankin' the dial up to five (5) to shave the last remaining remnants of what was a whisker - to get bbs. Not just once or twice either, over and over again, because it doesn't cut. So, after the shave I tossed the razor blade in the newly anointed blade bank.
The rest of the shave goes fine - without incident.
Why are these blades performing like this?
