Here's what I started to notice: having about a dozen razors (my favorite is about 5), shaving with one, for example, a razor for about a week, switching to another, with a perfect combination of blades for me, I began to notice that I don’t feel completely comfortable from shaving , something is wrong.

In other words, hmm ... how to put it .... "The razor that replaces the one I used" stops shaving with comfort. "(This is not skin fatigue)
At first I thought it was a figment of my imagination, but the frequency of this situation made me realize that I was most likely right ...
Has anyone encountered a similar situation?
What the ... Really have to leave one razor)?

Sure. That's why many of us have lots of razors. But be sure to try other types of razors as well. You don't mention types, but there are single edge safety razors that also include injectors and lather catchers. I know I'm missing a few types. Someone will have my back on this no doubt.

One other thing I can suggest is be sure to pay attention to technique. Too, as we get better with technique razors that turned out to be not so good all of a sudden are excellent when we retry them.

Thanks for the advice. By the way, I really think that this is muscle memory and the power of habit.

I have to agree with Brian - working on your technique should help. And the nice thing is that if you have mastered one razor, it's easier to apply what you learned to another one Wink

The only time I've used one razor more than 2 days in a row was when I was late for work 3 days one week and left the blade in the razor.

Yes. And also on vacations when I bring only one razor.

Forgot about that.  I did use a Gillette adjustable black beauty for 10 days in a row in 2016 during a vacation to Seattle and for 18 days on a trip to India in Dec 2017.  Worked fine.
