    I recently made a blade trade with @PanChango. He included some Polsilvers in the blades he sent me. I had not used my Red Tip for a number of months because it is too aggressive for me. On a whim, I threw one of the Polsilvers in the Red Tip and gave it a try. I can't explain it, but it turned out to be a perfect match for me. Nice close, comfortable shaves. No irritation or nicks. Yeah, I am still careful but it looks like I can get the Red Tip in to my razor rotation.:happy093:

    The Gillette Red Tip is a fav of mine. I use Personna Lab Blues with it on my tough old beard. I get outstanding smooth and close shaves. Sometimes blades do make a difference!

    I have also found that to be a great combo

    Technique trumps hardware. I suspect you are getting better at shaving, Ed. I am finding that I can successfully shave with just about anything and any combination nowadays. Good for you.

    I recently used that same combo and had the best shave with the red tip I have ever had. Glad it worked out for you as well!
