I’ve been using my blade for a week now and I’ve been very pleased with the results. It gives a close shave which is in the same ball park as the Gilette Fusion I used to use before. The main selling point of the Azor though is the length of time the blade stays sharp, so I’m trying to see if it stays sharp longer than my Fusion blades used to.
The only thing I didn’t like about the blade when I tried it was that I was used to a heavier handle and the balance felt wrong. However once you start shaving with it you hold it in a different way to normal blades and it feels natural and intuitive.
The blade I’m testing came complete with some King Of Shaves shaving gel and I must say I love it. The gel feels minty on the skin when you apply it and seems to leave a protective layer on the skin when you wash it off; which is very unlike anything I’ve ever used before. I’m sure part of the great result I’m getting from the Azor is thanks for the gel, but I’m still too happy with it to try experimenting with the blade and normal shaving foam.
I’ll keep you posted as the weeks go buy as to how long the blade lasts 😉
