Picked up a pack of Feather Pro-guard's on https://www.shaving.ie

Seven shaves in and I'm still using the first Feather Pro-guard :happy:.
My poor Merkur progress doesn't get a look in since I got the Colonial Brass "General" :)

Can someone "Not looking at anyone..........Halvor":D give me some feed back on Kai Captain Titan pinks?

Sorry, Manic, I never went further with Captain Milds after the sample pack and can't recall. It seems a few report 'not as sharp as Feathers initially but increasingly smooth, beyond the Feathers'. Others may chime in.

What I can say, though, is make sure to steer clear of Feather's pink blades, aka Softguards! :surrender:

Kai Captain Titan Mild Pink, I usually get five nice shaves and then I start to feel the slight tug.
Feather ProGuard, I get 9 great shaves and it keeps going strong. Why stop at 9? My other razors get jealous and I need to change things up. With that said, the RazoRock Black Hawk V2 is a great razor with a Maggard MR18 black handle. Perfect added weight to give this razor head amazing balance and near BBSS.

Big fan as I am of the Schick, after 5 or 6 shaves, I too find they start to tug. However, the fact that they shave so well from first use makes me prefer them to othe 50mm blades - and at about £20 for 60 blades, it's no problem ditching them. I think that's about 7 pence a shave.

For Vintage SE around 6 with a Gem S/S

My new favourite Blades are the Schick Proline AC blades, which come in two sizes :-
1. Type P [ 50mm] For Mongoose,Cobra ,Hawk, General , Claymore etc.

2 Type B [38mm ] For Supply SE and Vintage Injectors, need to be loaded from a host keyed Dispenser.

I can get up to 10 shaves, but now limiting it to 8. The Bonus is that they are quite inexpensive.

Hi Rob where do you get your Schick blades from mate? Sounds like a good price
