KMF cool mint
Simpson Special Best Badger
Slim set to 9
Polsilver Super Iridium (3)
I've been blade shaving for awhile and I thought I had experienced everything. Too, I'm blade testing and while I cringe when I decide to test a new blade (way too many crappy blades!), this Polsilver SI blade is (so far) possibly the finest blade I have ever used, and that's saying something. "My" Med Preps and Gillette Yellows are mighty fine blades, but it's been quite awhile since I used them, so maybe my memory is hazy. It happens. Anyway...
Yesterdays shave with the Black Handle should have tipped me off. I knew it was special, but didn't have a clue what was to come.
Todays shave was quite simply the finest shave I can remember - ever. Comfort, closeness, speed, all off the scale. I never even felt the blade! That's scary when one is using a Slim set to 9. I actually like to feel the blade at that setting so that I don't get sloppy. I normally make 2 passes just for shits and giggles, but after feeling the face after the first pass, if I had gone to touchups after that 1 pass I have no doubt that it would have been a one pass BBS. I made a full 2nd pass anyway then moved to touchups for the problem areas. I have no doubt that it was absolutely the fastest BBS I've ever gotten. I'm curious now to see how long it takes to grow out of the BBS.
Even if these blades don't give me the required 7 shaves I'm tempted to buy a mess of them anyway.
Edit: over 12 hours later and the shave could still be considered a DFS.
