What blades to use with Fat Boy?
So I've completed my first shave with my recently acquired (Thanks Maher) 61 Fat Boy. First I love the feel of this razor. It's heavy and feels great in my band. I lathered up with TOBS Avocado and started on Level 1 since this was my first time using an adjustable. As a recent newbie I started in the DE world using the Merkur HD. I quickly realized that this was to low a setting and jumped up to Level Three. After a WTG and then a ATG pass I had myself a quality 1st shave with this razor. I plan tp slowly work myself up the adjustable scale to find the right level for my face. I was using a new gillette blade from sampler pack I purchased at West Coast Shaving. These blades seemed to perform well. I usually use the Merkur blades with my HD but I thought I would try the Gillettes. If anyone is on the fence about picking up one of these razors please come over to this side the Grass is Definately Greener.
Also If you have a Fat Boy what blades do you prefer? I've tried the feathers in my HD with little success. Well unless you gauge success by the amount of blood I shed.
