    The Crystals, if I had to pick one, are my favorite blade. Sharp, smooth, and last a long time.

    When I started getting interested in straight shaving, I found another thread like this well underway, and really enjoyed reading, "The Noob Chronicle - My Straight Razor Experience", by jtdo, it drew me in totally, and to the regret of many here, I became a member...check it out if you're interested in a good read.

    out of all of the Gillette ive owned the Slim is my favorite followed by an older supper speed , setting #3 with a feather blade is awesome for me !! i went five one time ( still wet behind the ears with DE then ) and almost ripped my face off ..lol .. i may try to bump it up a notch as a new Futur DE i have i ran on #3 and it is prob like a 4-5 on the Gillette ..

    as far as looks go though i still love the look and feel of the slims

    SuperMax Platinum on it's 4th shave was wonderful tonight on setting #5. I am noticing the longer I shave with this razor the more I like having the option to raise or lower the setting, depending on a variety of factors, including things like how many shaves are on a blade or what type of blade, among other things.
