The right choice of the blade for DE razor shave must aim to the quality shaving.
When you use a good Double Edge shaving razor, you have to complete the opera with the right blade.
High quality blade for DE safety razor shaving
If you are in love, like me, with safety razor DE, you can't don't love too the blades; or better, the high-quality razor blade that makes great the shaving.
Not all the blades are the same, and is very interesting try, and find, the right blade for each razor, to each is own as personal required.
When I purchased the Edwin Jagger safety razor DE89BL closed comb, there was with the item 5 Derby Extra blades; I think they are a discrete compromise rate quality/price, but first and 2nd time I used the razor with these blades, I didn't get satisfaction.
Perhaps because of I'm learning again to use the DE razor, although with other quality blades I found immediately another return, a very good return.
Which blades am I speaking about ?
Which blades I have tried and I'm using
I'm speaking (writing…) about the Personna Platinum blade that I use with Edwin Jagger razor closed comb, and since the first time I use them I found a good and pleasant return in the shaving, very sweet, for the razor too, it's clear, sharp blades, most stiffness in comparison to Derby Extra, and most sharp too.
Comfortable blades with a comfortable razor, I think this is a good marriage.
I use even each day without problems for the skin, rather, I feel my skin better since when I use the safety razor, and I almost think with the shiver to the multi-blade razor, now that I tried the DE razor shaving; another planet, in better, and I almost don't do more the shaving against the grain, is not necessary if I shave my face every day.
When I will more confidence with the DE razor shave, I will try again the Derby Extra blades, to see one time more if they are better what I'm thinking at the moment, or not.
With Personna Platinum and Edwin Jagger DE89BL I found a good compromise, and I'm glad and satisfied with the results.
Instead, with the Parker 69C safety razor open comb, first time I used Personna Platinum too, but for my lack of experience or for my shave, or both, I didn't get so much I was waiting for, and my expective was very high.
So I tried the Feather Platinum coated blade with Parker razor, and I'm appreciating a lot the results; wow.
This is too for me another good marriage, although I'm curious to try even other blades, like Kay for example.
High-quality blades have a higher price, but you use more time, and in a better way.
Parker 69C with Feather is a concrete shaving, sweet despite the high-quality sharpening, even in the not easy zone to shave, like under the nose, the neckline, for the regulation of sideburns that I like a lot to keep.
This blades I have written about, are for me a good compromise, at least at the moment that I'm learning again to use the DE safety razor after a lot of years of the multi-blade razor: brrrrrr, shivers !!!
The razor head and the quality blade double edge: great spot-on
The razor head and the quality blade double edge could be the great spot-on choice for a good shaving.
Unavoidably, a good safety razor shaving must be a good quality blade, without compromise, if you want to get a good result.
And the DE razor head is heavy, and the most of weight is on the razor head, so keeps to the blade working well when you keep on the skin, without stress, and the blade in the razor head makes the work in a good way.
That's why you must try the right blade for the right razor, for what you need: shave all the day, every other day, type of shave, etc.
You know better yourself must of each other, so you must take information, and especially try on your skin the better solution for you: the right quality blade for your right quality razor.
So, good shaving my friend & stay in touch.
