Over the Thanksgiving break, I visited family in Chicago and brought my Parker SR1 in lieu of packing a strop. Three shaves with it and no nicks, but I could never get as close as I get with a straight, particularly in the moustache area. When I bought the razor, I picked up a small box of Lord half-blades, which is pretty much all I have been using with it. More recently, I read comments to the effect that Merkur blades are a bit thicker and will be more like shaving with a coticule edge, etc. So I am wondering, has anyone experimented with the Parker (or similar shavette taking half DE blades) with different blades like this, and how significant was the difference?
