Guys, I just did the most ironic thing. This shows how shortsighted we can be I guess.

I've been agonizing over whether to break down and spend 19.95 for some really nice DE blades or just go with 100 cheap ones. $19.95 seemed such a high price to pay.

It finally dawned on me that with "modern" multiblade cartridges $19.95 would have bought me 8 cartridges.

This was almost a case of penny wise-pound foolish.

I understand, Uncle Dave!

... I then realize, if I am truly already saving, and I enjoy it... then that 100 lot of Bolzano blades will be much more appreciated Biggrin

now if they were only $20 for a 100 lot! Tongue

After you told me about Bolzano I looked them up. I went ahead and got SuperMax Super Platinum which I understand gets high ratings and the price was good compared to Bolzano. Next time I might just go ahead and give Bolzano a try.

out of one of the purchases I made from the B&B B/S/T, I got a few of those SuperMax blades... they do shave pretty fine!

I used it twice so far (going through a different blade out of the blades I am sampling, every shave), and it performed pretty well.. not much drag/tug to speak of... you should be getting a *SUPER* buy Tongue
