    No, but you can find it on the Above The Tie website. I have decided to give up on it as the M1 is too mild and the R2 is too "aggressive", at least for me. I headshave as well.

    For me, the R1 came alive with a Feather blade. With good lather, I get a good clean shave with no irritation or weepers. Another blade I find that works in them is the GSB.

    Any sharp blade will work fine in any non damaged razor. New folks need to know they need to learn technique not blade swapping. Does not matter who it is. Good technique evens out tool...period.

    Maybe, but I'm not new. I just got lazy and didn't shave for a while.

    On the flipside, some blades seem to work better in certain razors too. I've never been a fan of Derby's but read a couple posts about using them in slants, and lo and behold they did pretty well... if only for a couple shaves, then went downhill real quick

    There Are Lots Of Variables When It Comes To A Great Shave.... Everyones Skin Hair And DNA Is Unique.. Thats What Makes The Necessary Hobby So Kool...

    Seems to be a lot of this going around at the moment.

    If you're having issues with a razor , keep using it. Doesn't matter what blade. Practice and it will give you good shaves.

    If you have a favourite blade, stick with that one. They all do the same thing.

    I would add that I do believe there could be such a thing as an awful brand of blade. I haven't used one yet. But it would be awful in every razor.

    The idea that this blade isn't a very good one, but could be a good one in a more aggressive razor, is stupid.

    Not when you're prone to ingrown hairs and razor bumps. I have curly hair and if I am not careful I'll get them on the back of my neck. Yes, technique is important, but tools are as well.

    Bull feathers. As long as nothing is broke a razor is a blade holder. No matter which razor the blade runs along the skin. Once it is running along the skin it can not get closer. How will a different razor have different results? All the little...and they are very little..differences are evened out with good technique.
