hey peeps im saj from birmingham england!

ermmmm where shall i start? lool

so i shave my hair off aka skinhead...

i do have a beard so i dont shave my facial hair off which i suppose is probably what most peeps on here do (i assume)

im not exactly new to double edge razors or cut throat razors etc

i actually have cut throat razors, kamisori's (japanese razor) and double edge safety razors and been using them for a long time...

i've got a Jagen David E02 safety razor which i got cheap on amazon few years ago,
recently got the Saiver ProfiMed which is a russian razor safety razor,
which as some of you already know is the razor that takes two double edge razor blades,
i shaved my hair off with two feather blades, was the first time using the razor and two feathers at the same time, was really good really enjoyed it!

by the way it came shipped form russia the opposite side of the world very quickly in my opinion so fair play to the seller...

also got a wilkinson sword razor from boots which came with some wilkinson sword blades too

i just ordered the QShave from amazon the other day should be here on the weekend, from my research im led to believe its a merkur futur copy which has good reviews,
so thats going to be the first time using an adjustable safety razor, looking forward to it...

i got the kamisori's because i love the look of them,
the two ive got both take single edge razor blades and one is a feather copy cat version so to speak...

blades ive used are super max super stainless blue and brown pack. (think the brown ones are from india but not sure), feather, wilkinson sword, and a few more...

i was going to order some voskhod blades but i ended up ordering 200 gillette nacet blades as a lot of peeps seem to review them highly from what i read and watched online

im sure some of you already got one but i actually managed to get a double edge razor stropper from ebay for a good price i couldnt refuse,
apparently it was made in 1918 which is probably the oldest thing i own lool

on a side note i also got the 'omnishaver' if you havent heard of it, its basically a tool a razor designed to shave the head,
its not bad to be fair, its actually good for a quick shave of the head to be honest

anyways as of late ive really been having a passion for shaving my head and been doing it regularly,
i suppose years ago when i used to shave my head with cartridge razors like the mach 3 it felt like a chore then something that made you feel good,
i like the feel and satisfaction safety razors and cut throat razors give you, although overall i prefer the safety razor over the cut throat razor

anyways im here to learn new tip, tricks and gain some knowledge and wisdom for ya'll!

anyways sorry for the long post and i just thought i'd say hi

Oi! Oi! Saj!!! Good choice on the Nacet blades. They are in my top 3 currently with Feather Hi-Stainless and PolSilver Super Iridium. PolSilvers are discontinued but seem to be readily available on eBay that is where I got mine. Welcome to the nook!!!

I use the Nacet and PolSilver interchangeably. I'm not sure one is sharper than the other in my experience. I use them both in all my razors as well as the more aggressive open combs and adjustables. Both shave smooth and close for me. Very comfortable. Some will say the Feathers are the sharpest blade out there. It is definitely the sharpest I have ever used. I use the Feathers in my mild razors. Haven't had the courage to try them in a more aggressive razor. The Feathers are a little more money than the Nacets, but not by much. You should be able to get the Polsilver bladse by the pack so you don't have to commit to a lot of them. That said, I do use the Nacet blades the most.

yea like a 100 feather blades costs over £20 here in the uk on ebay and i got 200 nacets for like £17 so i even got change left over and double the amount too

you got go for the feather in the aggressive blade just for the experience imo,
just take your time until you feel a bit more confident, just dont do it on a day where youre going to be in a rush and limited on time

Yeah, the Nacets are an excellent blade at a great price. I want to try the Feather in a more aggressive razor. I rarely get nicked so I feel my technique is good. I may try it as now I am growing in a beard. An aggressive razor and blade to see how efficient it can be with this growth. If I can continue the beard. I'm not into it already. Haha!!!

yea either way for the money de blades are soooo much cheaper then those cartridge blades so even if you go with the most 'expensive' blade youre still going to be left with a lot change imo

well youll truly know and be able to determine how your technique is once you use the sharpest blade in the most aggresive razor imo

No doubt. Even when I was buying inexpensive cartridges (compared to well known ones), they were still much more expensive. And yes, a Feather in a more aggressive razor will definitely test my technique.
