Shaving, gents - Page 55

post #811 of 814
Yep, the standard yellow box Feather.

Definitely sharp. As I say I thought they were fine for a couple of years but now I think they may be a bit too thin on the edge. I have the same thing with straights - I prefer a heavy blade that is sharp, but not too sharp.

I never found the Feather's to be as spectacular as advertised. For me the best blades have been the Gillette 7 O'clock Blacks or the SuperMax Super Platinums which are sharp smooth and last the longest. The SuperMax's are much cheaper too if you can find them.

Electric since day one.

With the exception of one Philips try, it has always been a Braun.


Right now I am on a Braun 8990. Cleaning cartridges are being re-filled with denatured alcohol (minus color and perfume Braun adds).

Change blades and foil every 12 months. No razor-burn, rash, no immediate need for lotions and such after a shave.


I get rashes and can't stand the scratching, even a good blade gives me. I have thick hair & plenty of it.
