If you've never tried a carbon DE blade but are curious, here's your chance. I'll drop two minty sealed blades in the mail to you, free. You might get a Rexall, Pal, Adams, Blade Man or some other brand (oddly enough I'm not sure I have any Gillette carbons) but they all perform very similarly. Should you receive a blade that's not in its own wrapper, rest assured it just came out of a dispenser and is likewise guaranteed unused. A few tips if you're interested in this offer: You will find any carbon blade rougher and louder than stainless, but they still shave fine...after all, guys just like us used them for 40 years. It just takes a slightly different approach than you're used to. Like many blades, carbons tend to smooth out with use before they get dull, so don't pitch a blade after one shave. Dry blade thoroughly (towel dry or 99% alcohol dip). Before the next shave, strop it 10x each edge on your pants leg or leather strop if you have one. You should find it noticeably smoother the 2nd time around. PM me if interested. Very sorry but due to postage rates, CONUS only.
