Given Bruce's comments I might be tempted to try a feather blade for the first time ? I have some in my den. Once I found Nacet's I stopped experimenting with blades as they work with all my razors.On the assumption that it’s not the blade alone, but a blade+razor combo I tried the Futur with a Feather, with the Futur set at 3,3 and 2. I had not liked Feathers with my other razors, but this combo was excellent. In fact, a super-smooth BBS shave. One for the memories!
