I'm not sure what I make of this blade. It wasn't a particularly smooth shave. Not tuggy but a little bit rough. I'll reserve judgement until I've used it a bit more. To top it all off, the Abysso splash irritated my face (first time I've used it).

Was the blade on the sharper side of things? Some blades (eg Lab Blue) are a bit rough on the first shave, but settle in and are better with a shave or two under it's belt.
