    Happy to report, I did two full passes and no follow up with a DE! Also, no nicks and no stinging from the AS.

    Good morning friends, first shave of June for me and back to the blade trials. Up today is the Gillette Nacet, another blade to come out of the ST. Petersburg plant. I have seen some people compare this blade to the exalted GSB but for me they were worlds apart. For me the Nacet did not have the sharpness of the top tier blades that I enjoy and it wasn't overly smooth for me either. No tugging, riding the cap took care of that, but after each pass I noticed that the beard reduction wasn't nearly as close as the shaves that I had been getting all last month with the Astra SP. I went 3 full passes to achieve a DFS and got a lot of sting from the Alum which confirmed the roughness that I was feeling on my face. For me this blade doesnt fall to the bad blade level as the shark but rather a meh blade for me. Witch hazel and Nivea to cool the burn from the Alum and my face is feeling better. Have a great day my friends!

    Thank you. This is the knot you got me for the 400 I subsequently broke. A Doug Korn brush with a Druida knot is a pretty good consolation prize.

    Robert I like the perspective angle you used on this shot and 9 once again? You must have dolphin thick skin to using back to back 9 settings. :)
