Heh, yeah. As I mentioned in previous posts, I did derby then red packs, and now settled on feathers. They are the best blades for my face sofar. I will still be trying others, as I have 2/3 of my sample pack to use still, but I think feather will remain my blade of choice.
Deffinatly strop it though, they were giving me alot of RB before I tried it. Search for 'corking' or 'glass stropping' in forums and you should find something usefull if you don't already know what I am talking about. It gets all the metal burrs off the blade edge and makes for a much more comfortable shave. YMMV as always, but this works best for me. GL!
Watch out! There's a new barber in town!
