    I currently am on shave #27 with my Vector using a Schick Proline blade with no pulling. Blade appears still sharp with each shave. After every shave I remove the blade and clean it. I then palm strop it 10x and flip it for the next shave. I am amazed at the number of shaves I’m getting off this blade. What’s your experience been with your AC blades. I’ve used Feather Pro and Super AC, KAI Captain and Kai Pinks and have never been able to get beyond 8 or 9 shaves before experiencing pulling and tugging during a shave. Is your experience similar? Just wondering?

    Enjoy your shaves,

    Most whiskers are different, my experience with blades is one shave, bin the blade.
    I must say, I kinda envy those who get 3 or 4 good shaves from a blade. When I push a blade, I get into nicks, cuts, and scrapes or burns.
    Good luck
    Nice blade usage.

    Normally around 10 in my alumigoose. I never mess with cleaning or other futzing with the blade.
