I have a very coarse/thick beard coupled with sensitive skin. I've been DE shaving for a month. While the HD has done very well, I need something much more aggressive that allows a DFS/BBS with less passes. Currently it takes me 4 passes with touchup and my face is on fire!
So, here's the question - slant or mergress? I've heard all the talk on the slant (great for sensitive skin, BBS in 2 passes . . . ). But, could the mergress offer the same reduction in required passes while offering the flexibility of adjustability (that the slant can't do)?
I know that some folks will just say get feathers. But, I'm not looking to buy high end blades at high cost. Derbys and Red IPs are great. And, I'd actually like to just live off VDH soap and Walmart blades, which is why I am pursuing the razor upgrade.
As usual, your advice is much appreciated. Thanks gents!
