TOPAZ Stainless

2013-08-28 10.16.02This blade claims to be Micronised, which means “To reduce to particles that are only a few microns in diameter.” Sounds promising! They obviously spent more time on the cutting edge than on the printing, which is fairly poor. Still, the blade is double-wrapped, which is usually a good sign. This blade is from India, and a quick Google search reveals that it is not one of their top-end blades.

Update: Smooth shave but I’m not convinced it will last more than a couple of days. We’ll see.

Update: Today’s shave was terrible. No cuts, but really rough, and left my face sore. Normally I find day 2 to be the best day for a blade, today I nearly gave up half-way through the shave (and I kind of wish I had). Going back to a trusted Dorco blade for a few days to let my face recover. Won’t be buying these blades any time soon!
