Prompted by the "Week of Tech" thread, I purchased a ball end tech:
And have the following blades to try:
7 O'Clock Sharp-edge
Gillette Bleu Extra (purchased in France last year)
So over the next few days/weeks I'll try to post my opinions here, along with the soap/cream choices too. Hopefully it will be helpful to those tempted to join the Tech-lovers out there!
Some points to bear in mind:
I won't be making explicit reference to nicks, as I have a few scars etc that will always be sliced no matter how gentle the blade or the shave!
I've only had the Tech for a few days, so I'm still in the honeymoon period there
