Gillette 7 O’Clock SharpEdge Double Edge Razor Blade Review
Thrilled to dump the Nacet Platinum razor blade in the blade safe, I went back to the Gillette family of blades, and gave the 7 O’Clock SharpEdge razor blade a try.
It was a great improvement from the Nacet blade. Vastly sharper than the Nacet, and also substantially smoother.
(Still sticking with my Edwin Jagger DE89 for this blade review.)
Double Edge Razor Blade Review – Gilette 7 O’Clock SharpEdge
0) Initial impressions –
The Gillette 7 O’Clock SharpEdge is much sharper than the Nacet…not as sharp as a Feather or a Shark, but pretty sharp. It was also a pretty smooth shaver, and gave me a pretty decent shave after just a single pass.
1) User Interface – what does the shave feel like during the shave
The Gillette SharpEdge was a huge improvement over the Nacet. Sharp. Smooth. Good shave. I like it a LOT better.
2) Quality of Service – how good of a shave did I get
The Gillette SharpEdge gave me a pretty good shave with just one pass. I added a quick XTG pass on the cheeks and I was good to go. Didn’t need a BBS, so 1 and a half passes was good enough for today!
3) Hack factor – did it seem to make me nick myself, or was it smooth sailing?
No blood, in spite of how much sharper this was than the Nacet!
4) Useful service life – how many shaves did I get out of the blade?
I got 5 good shaves out of the Gillette 7 O’Clock Sharp Edge razor blade.
Time to move on…since I was pleased with this blade, I thought I’d stay in the Gillette 7 O’Clock family…
