This question pertains to just two blades. If you have had experience with these two blades in any razor, whether it be something like the Cobra or Mongoose, or in a Feather or KAI Straight Razor, I would like to know your opinion/comparison of the two.

I'm sorry but both are blades I really dislike, I've never gotten a good shave out of a guarded blade (many others have however).

I've used both blades in both Cobras. The performance of both blades seems to be razor dependent.The pro-guards worked beautifully in the Classic Cobra. Whereas,the Kai Milds were too mild for the razor. The Milds just did not give as clean a shave as did the Pro-Guards.
However, when shaving with the King Cobra I found the Pro-Guards to be a bit too aggressive. The Milds,however, were perfect.
I have a pack of both waiting for delivery of my Mongoose. I predict the Kai Milds will probably shave better than the Pro-Guards in the Mongoose

I have the opposite experience as Barrylu.
I only have a King Cobra, and can get a really good shave with the Pro Guards. I find the Kai milds tug even on only 2 days growth.

Will try them both on in the Mongoose when I get it.

+1 Actually, I have never enjoyed any of the SE blades! My loss, really, as I am eternally set to use one DE razor. Biggrin

Seconded. I've used them in my Feather AC SS and too much tugging and not enough sharpness for my liking.

Oh, I think they overly sharp and I always get nicks and weepers every time I use one. I just don't find them smooth, at all! Blush

I just started using the feather pro's with the classic cobra. only used it twice as a matter of fact and i find it too aggressive for my skin, many nicks and weepers and irritation lasts for a couple of hours after. i want to give the kai milds a shot but i may sell the razor completely so i don't want to buy a pack and not use it. if any of gentlemen are willing to send me a a blade or two fo the kai milds i would appreciate it. i will pay for it and the shipping as well. i can also send you feather pro blades in exchange. please pm me.
