Re: Shaving - instruments, brands and habits

And how is the experience withthe traditional blades?
I started in 80s with Topaz or whatever else i could find on a Gillette which was presented by my NRI Mausi. It had a feature where i could tilt the angle of the blades.
But after i switched to cartridges and tried to switch black to blades, i found that a bit too rough. I am tempted to switch back after seeing some ads but still remember my old experience. All listing these will get a

I too started with Wilkinson, Topaz and such single blade razors way back in engineering college. Gillete was unheard of.

But to be honest, you will find the cartridge type blades much better than the old single blade razor. I have tried the old single razor, but its no joy. It only helps if you have not shaved for quite a few days and need to tackle a forest on your face.

Only if you are going to a traditional barber shop will you enjoy the single blade razor.

Stick to the newer cartridge types.
