Crystal Super Platinum Double Edge Razor Blade Review
Wow….I’m on a roll. After suffering through the Personna Platinum Super Stainless, I decided to try the Crystal Super Platinum. Yuck! (Still using the Edwin Jagger DE89 for this razor blade review…at least it’s pleasant to use.)
Double Edge Razor Blade Review – Crystal Super Platinum
0) Initial impressions –
Saying it again. Yuck. Not impressed…again. Another tug-o-matic and a bad shave. Almost like using my electric razor again (closeness-wise) but less comfortable.
1) User Interface – what does the shave feel like during the shave
Uncomfortable…tugging and pulling and roughness and…
2) Quality of Service – how good of a shave did I get
Not so good with this one. Lousy shave, even trying a complete second XTG pass. Oh well, at least it was uncomfortable enough that I didn’t even try an ATG pass.
3) Hack factor – did it seem to make me nick myself, or was it smooth sailing?
I actually manage to cut myself a bit on day two…pushing too hard, trying to get a decent shave. This blade isn’t very sharp.
4) Useful service life – how many shaves did I get out of the blade?
Two shaves…that’s all I could stand. Tugging. Rough. Not a very good shave on day two. On to another Gillette, methinks…
