I have some modern, really excellent blades that I decided are my best blades. I mean they are fantastic! I can't imagine a better blade or a finer shave coming from any blade.
Now the question. I know that the vintage blades demand a premium 'cause they aren't being made anymore and the supply is finite. Are they worth the price based on far superior performance or are they marginally better, and the rest of the justification of the price is nostalgia?
ShadowsDad wrote:Yes, DE blades only. My question was regarding the Personna 74s and not injectors.
ShadowsDad wrote:OK, I'll give the ones for sale a try if they're still available and see if they give a shave that's 3x better (to justify the price) than the DE blades that are currently my best blades.
They have a heck of an act to follow though and I can't imagine it. It'll be kinda like having sex and a shave at the same time I guess. :)
ShadowsDad wrote:Martin, well, I don't think so... I've been testing blades for 10 months now, and have exhaustively tested at least 30 blades, and my standards are very high. Iridiums are good for me and made the cut. They were one of 3 that made it out of the 30 or so blades tested.
paddy wrote:brian, i would be willing to lay money that there will be at least one of the following five vintage blades which, when you try it, will outperform your current number one blade:
gillette platinum plus
wilkinson 'the blade' / super sword edge
it's your job (duty?!) to find out which one is the golden ticket for you!
