Roger, in my experience, the Muehle/Edwin Jagger head is very slightly milder than the Merkur fixed head.

Re: Muhle head thread on Gillette handle?

How does the Muehle head, say closed comb, compare to a Merkur?

Re: Gillette Tech blade matching

Hi Roger, Dave, and Paul - My experience has been that all of my favorite blades are favorites regardless of the razor I use them in. I used the Tech exclusively for about three years, but I haven't used it much for quite awhile. Though I prefer something just a bit more aggressive than the Tech, I...

Re: Muhle head thread on Gillette handle?

It should work. That head fits most DE handles. So many of them have the same thread. Or are you just wondering what the shave is like? Well, knowing what the shave is like would be nice, yes. But I have an old Gillette "NEW" handle and thought this would be nice for it if it threads on okay. Thanks,

Gillette Tech blade matching

Greetings Gents,

I use a Tech about once a week, and since it is a milder razor, I use FEATHERS and get nice results. (If I use a Feather in one of my Super-Speeds, I risk getting blade rash or nicks.) For any Tech users, what blades do you like?

Thanks,
