    The design features of the Pils, and probably the iKon razor as well are singular unto themselves. The idea of non-flexed blades would seem to be more in line with straight razors than anything else out there. Getting the right blade with the right razor is a dance of harmony. It is not like the hip-hop dance of the clubs where one tries out the BIC disposable or Gillette Good News as well as a lot of those other 2-3-4 blade affairs, but more like a ball room dance. Straight razors and DE/SE razors have a certain "class" about them that begs more indulgence, more thought than merely cutting off a piece of hair. Like the ball room dances, the dance can be a memorable one, something that draws you back again and again.

    Obie has a unique way with words. If you were not already a writer, it would be a underlying hint that you should be.

    A recent blade I tried happened to leave an impression on my mind. With all the talk of Russian Iridiums, PolSilver Supers, Voskhod, Gillettes made in Thailand and several other "flavors" I tried one made right here in the U.S. that was a complete surprise to me. Personna Medical Prep blades. You might not think about such a blade as smooth, but it was an eye opener for me. Might be worth trying one....or two sometime.

    I've tried Congressional slick water, but it left me irritated. One time I combined it with Senate Committee soap and between the two you couldn't cut the fuzz off a peach.
