Greetings fellow den members. I am at the stage where I have to jump, scream and shout out aloud. I am in love with the Gillette Sensor! During my cartridge days I had always perceived the Sensor to be an inferior razor. Was this due to fierce marketing? promoting the mach 13's and falling for the con(FUSION) ... alas in my quest to find the most comfortable efficient and cost effective shave I gave the Sensor Excel a chance. To my amazement, the razor that I often shunned, ignored and dismissed as being inferior has provided me with the closest, irritation free shaves I have had to date. I have tried a multiplicity of razors including the Fatboy, the Tech, The New, Muhle R89, Aristocrat Junior, the #15, Schick Injectors (Type E and Type M), The Knack, Fat handled Tech, Merkur 933 Travel Razor, Trac II, Mach 3, Fusion, Schick Xtreme 3, Schick Hydro, Lion DE razor, Wilkinson Sword Classic, Wilkinson Sword 'sticky', Bic Classic, Schick Pivot Plus, Schick Slim Twin, Gillette Blue Tip and the list goes on and on and on. Although I have deep respect for DE / SE razors, its mission and efficiency all this yields to the omnipotent efficacy of the Gillette Sensor. This is a magnificent piece of equipment and blade it has led my rotation to a rotation around this razor. I absolutely love the Sensor. Even though this may seem like blasphemy and heresy to some my love for the Sensor Excel cannot be contained any further.
