    Default Blackland Vector

    I've been shaving with a Blackland Vector for sometime now. Never have I used any kind of razor that is so mild, yet will give a BBS shave every time. And the blades last a long time. I don't think I've dulled one yet. I just change them when I get bored!

    Those AC blades are hard to beat.

    Never heard of one till now. Are those blades the same/interchangeable with the schick injector blades?

    I had to look it up also. It looks most intriguing.

    Longer than the schick blades. The one i like are made by Feather. And if you have tried a DE in the past you know about Feather. But the AC blade is top notch in my book. They can give a superior shave. I have a handful of SE and Shavettes that use those blades. Its like slicing through butter. I have gotten 7 to 8 full shaves off one before it starts to get dull. Some folks will change then at 5 shaves but I bet if you pushed it you could get 10 full shaves out of one. And they do come in an injector like the Schicks.

    Yeah, had to google that.
    Nice looking razor, but expensive.

    I had one of the original Tradere Razors. I wasn't impressed with it and sold it. Based on that I wouldn't be in any hurry to buy one of theirs now.

    Like I've said before, just about everyone is making high end DE type razors these days.

    I have a mongoose which uses the feather super pro SE and I always thought those blades were simply not that sharp compared to a DE and they held back the performance of the Mongoose. I thought it was a bad combo of an aggressive razor with a not so sharp blade.

    You can put any of the AC blades in the Mongoose. I like the combo myself.
