    So I've hopped out of the shower smelling all fresh and prepare for my shave. I whip up a batch of lather with Hydrolast Paste/Activator/Cube and a shot a KMF Lime. I enjoy the nice lathering with the brush and get set. I pick up my trusty Merkur HD and make my first WTG pass. Wow!!! No tugging at all! About halfway through my WTG passes I notice it. The Feather blade sitting on the counter. No wonder it felt so smooth. It's hard to feel any cutting when the blade is sitting on the counter. Don't I feel stupid. Please tell me I'm not the only one that has forgotten to put the blade in.

    I can't help you feel better but my wife is a psychologist. Do you want me to arrange an appointment for you :happy102

    Seriously though, I've heard of others doing that so I think you're in good company :D

    Yup. I did it with a Super Speed. It was the second week I owned it, had taken out a blade and discarded it, but not inserted a new one. I remember the AMAZINGLY smooth first stroke and thinking "WOW! Now THIS is a razor!"

    Crap. Now I realize that Derby I've been putting in my Aristocrat has been the thing responsible for screwing up my shave every day.
