Match the Blade to the Razor.

The importance of selecting the right blade for a Razor was really driven home to me over the last few days. I have been using a Hawk V3-A plate with a Kai Pink blade rather than my favoured Schick Proline, and find I am getting better/quicker Shaves with the Kai blade. I use a Kai guarded blade in The HawkV3-OC plate.
I have recently been varying the blades I use in different Razors to get the best match for me. Obviously what works for me will not necessarily work for others, but do not just use one blade because you like it, try different ones and you may get a pleasant surprise.

Very sensible approach. I've been trying to do this for many a while, but my problem is that I can never remember the combinations, and, by the time I think to do so, it's too late to write them down. I blame anno domini.

I have a little note book to record Shaves in each Razor and name of blade in use, do it after each Shave.
 
I find the Kai guarded is excellent in the hawk v3A. It didn't tame the executive shaving Claymore. Don't think anything will tame that beast.

Over the last couple of days, I have for the first time been using an ATT SE1 fitted with a Kai CT Protouch MG blade transferred from another Razor.
My first outing was with the blade on its 7th outing, and I noted that despite a distinct lack of blade feel the Combo worked well as the finish was excellent. Today despite the blade being on its 8th outing, the Razor /Blade combo was forgiving and without any drag I got a superb close all round finish. Folk have remarked on the ATT being a rather harsh performer, fitted with this blade it most certainly is not.
