Ask Aaron Q/A: Do you recommend Gillette 7 O’ Clock double edge razor blades?
Posted in Ask Aaron Q & A, Double Edge Shaving | Comments (0)
Aaron is asked a question about the merits of Gillette 7 O’ Clock double edge razor blades
Victor Lord Denovan, from the UK, asks:
“Hi Aaron, I have now tried quite a number of different double edge razor blades, including Feathers, Astras, etc but never tried Gillette 7 o’clocks. I must admit that the ones mentioned above did not really impress me over the Supermax Blue Diamonds, although I realise that everyone’s face is different. Do you think the 7 o’clocks are noticeably better/different? Regards, Victor.”
I have tried several different brands of the Gillette 7′O clock brand, but to me they were not better than Feathers, which are my favorite. This just goes to show you that blades are the most personable and subjective aspect to wetshaving.
I suggest you try them, who knows, you might find one of them better than the Supermax, but if not, you know that the Supermax are the best for your particular face. It is truly a win-win situation. Let me know what you find out!
