After recovering from 2 weeks of Nacets, someone sent me an Gillette Thin. So this morning I tried it.
From my sideburn, about 3 inches downward stroke. Removed the blade, and replaced it with a brand new Feather.
ahhhhhhhhhhh

Id half to use a Derby for a month to get it that dull.

Is this the dreaded Gillette Thin, made in Thailand?
I'm with you on this...tried them a few times and gave up.
For a similar (or actually slightly dearer price than GSB's and Nacets) these 'Thins' are not worth the price of entry.
I bought 12 of them just to add to an order (so I qualified for free shipping). Lesson learned...next time I'll pay the shipping.

I've got some 'Nam thins, great blades for me, not up there with the best but perfectly usable.
Are the Vietnam Thins the same blade as the Thai?
I haven't tried them. How does price compare to GSB, etc?
The Thai blades were dearer than my usual Gillette blades, but were not in the same ballpark re smoothness and efficiency.

I've had Thins and thought they were great! Would need to check the origins though. They could have been NOS...
