Hi, All. A while ago I broke down and purchased the HUGE sampler. As recommended, I am starting from the bottom of the list. Prior to starting the sampler I was using Gillette Silver or Wilkinsons, both of which work great. Having finally settled on a razor for awhile (Merkur Progress) I thought I would turn my attention now to the blades. I should mention that I have been getting great shaves using Wilkinsons in the Progress dialed to 1.5. So, starting from the bottom of the list, here are my early experiences with this sampler. As always, YMMV.
Treet Classic - I thought that my first pass with this blade was really good. WTG was very smooth. Little did I know that it was really a terror. I had a few weepers but ended up with quite a bit of irritation. The alum stung a bit. On my second shave with this blade, the alum stung so badly over most of my face that I cursed and the shave wasn't even that close. Next.
Super Max Super Stainless - After my last shave with the Treet I was a bit hesitant with this blade and wasn't going to push my luck. I found it to be quite tuggy but after 2.5 passes had a tolerable shave. I wasn't going to push it so I had no nicks and no irritation. Alum wasn't bad at all. I'll try another shave with this blade but will most likely move on. It doesn't come close to the Wilkinson Classics.
I'll post more when I try the next blade or two.
