    Today I tried Gillette Sensor Excel for the first time and I was disappointed.. that it was quite aggressive(compared to the Mach 3) and I had tiny cuts in several places inside and especially in the neck, And now half an hour after shaving I feel that my face is burning and unpleasant compared to the Gillette Mach 3 which the feeling is very pleasant after shaving.
    I have no idea if the reason of cuts it's because Sensor Excel sharper than Gillette Mach 3 or its blades are more jagged.
    The handle was a very comfortable and easy to navigate under your nose.
    the conclusion: In my opinion Gillette Mach 3 is the best razor Gillette has ever produced, much more Gillette Fusion Proglide + Fusion Proshield and also the others razors.

    The OLD type is the best razor Gillette ever made. With that said, I think you need a pre-war Tech, which is milder and more user friendly, but still a most excellent Gillette razor.

    Keep to the Mach3, Hydro 3 or Quattro. Blue 3 or Sensor 3 if on a budget.

    You obviously have never used a Techmatic. So good, it's a highly guarded secret.

    I've heard nothing but horror stories about those or any other "reel" razors! Besides that, it's plastic, I don't shave with plastic! :prrr:

    But I'm OK with you using them. :D

    I don't know about horror stories but I never had so many ingrown hair as when I used any multi blade razor such as a Mach 3.

    If you're not familiar with the Techmatic, it's kinda different.
