Clog Pruf peerless, (S)chick injector blade, shave 2. The closeness of the shave improved on shave 2. I don't think it has to do with the blade being broken in but with small adjustments to get a better result with this razor/blade combo. Shave was on par with a Gem blade in this razor now but the difference is with a Gem this razor is very smooth and efficient with this (S)chick it is one seriously aggressive S.O.B. How much that has to do with the sharpness of the blade or angle I don't know. Tomorrow I'll nibble the blade so it sits flat on the base plate and see how much that changes how it shaves.
