Boycie83,

I have tried several blades now: Feather to start with because this blade works so well in my DE89, Gillette Yellow, Personna Red Israelie, and a Merkur.

Now think about that last blade, a Merkur. I even managed to cut myself with one them and they are considered one of the least sharp blades on the planet. It is very frutrating.

Some weepers have happened below the edges of the mouth, but I haven't had one of those now for a few days. However, where I do get cut, every time, is on the tip of the chin. I know this is a difficult area for many, but again, I can shave there with the DE89 sporting a Feather blade and not give it a second thought.
I agree with Steve said about Merkur blades, and the other blades you used of Feather, Gillette Yellow & Personna Red are all top tier blades for sharpness, I nick myself using those blades in a Gillette Tech, which is as mild as it gets! I'd recommend trying some blades that are on the smoother side of things, eg Trig Silver Edge, Gillette Platinum, Treet Black to name a few.

I've just taken some photos of the 3one6 against the DE89 and the GC 0.84 out of curiosity. Looking at the blade gaps, it looks like it would be easier to catch your chin with the incorrect angle using the 3one6 (I'm thinking when navigating the curvature). Forgive the quality of the photos - it's surprisingly hard to hold two razors steady in one hand.

I'm no expert in trigonometry and my advice could be way off the mark but hopefully these may useful in helping to overcome your chin cuts.

NB: The 3one6 is on the right in each photo. The gold razor is the DE89.

Absolutely. Some of the more "innocuous" blades, especially Indian ones and the beautifully-packaged ZaZa, are so smooth they won't cut butter, let alone whiskers. I find that the green Astra SP blades shave well, but are also good at taming some of the more unforgiving razors.
