Discussion in 'Safety Razors' started by grampi, Jan 9, 2009.
Mine's the Personna Red.
mine was the Red Persona, but I have switched almost entirely to the 7 o'clock yellows.
To date, mine is the Astra Super Platinum.
depends alot on the razor I'm using:
Krona - Feather
38C or super adjustable - red pack personna or astra superior
everything else - most of the time, red pack personna
Whatever kind Wal Mart has... They work good, they're cheap, convenient, readily available and the container holds used blades.
except mine are:
Feathers in mild razors......SS', Techs, Weishi, Sticky
Derbys in aggressive ones..........Slant, R41, Slim Adj
and just recently Ive been playing with the Gillette Yellow 7 'O clocks.
They have potential
I've tried the 7 o'clock yellow pack but I find them to be too harsh and unforgiving. I've gotten ridiculous razor burn with them in my Super Speed.
I have, however, falling in love with Derbys. To me, they seem to be the right balance between sharpness and forgiving. I get really, really close shaves with little to no razor burn.
Either Crystal's or Derby's; mostly Derby's these days.
Feathers mostly with Personna Reds in close second
I have a pack of the yellows, and I know I've used them, but for some reason I'm drawing a blank on them. They must not have been real impressive, or real bad or I would've remembered them. The Reds seem to be a perfect match for my (actually your old) Gillette Speed.
Depending on the Razor:
-Astra Superior Platinum (most razors)
-Crystal Personna (aggressive razors)
the "man" has spoken....................So it is written, so it SHALL be done
Crystals or Red IP's. I bought 100 IP's so going to go exclusive soon.
I am the scuttle master! Row you worthless, cartridge-using dogs! Row!
PS. Cartridge users are really okay. Really.
But cartridges aren't. :rolleyes005
Crystals, though with the help of some of the good folks here, I've recently given into RAD; so, I'll need to check blades vs. my new razors.
I'll pretty much use any blade -- as long as it's a Derby.
New here, but have been wetshaving for about 4 months. I really like the Dorco-301 blades. I use those, along with Derby's and Crystals or Red Packs. All seem to work well. Feathers are OK, but I only tend to get one good shave out of them, for some reason.
Red Personna. Let there be no other.
