Re: Vintage Hammam - first impression

Olle, it's your decision and if it makes you happy, that's all that counts. :D As you say, now you've got a backup! Just curious, why do you think you'd be destroying the bow? A little water shouldn't make any difference.

This explains what I've been seeing while using the Feather AC and Kai blades for 20 - 30 shaves before changing out. At the beginning they will cut the skin given the smallest encouragement. Then they start to mellow out very gradually until after about 10 or 12 shaves when they start to allow a bi...
