No, they don't. The first generation are non pivoting twin blades - Gillette Trac or G II/Schick Super II/Wilkinson Sword Profile mk1.Thanks Sabre, please excuse my ignorance, but do these blades fit the Sensor handle and are they comparable with the original Sensor blade shave? If possible, could you give me a link, if of course this is possible, kind regards whitesix
The Mühle R41 TWIST open comb safety razor is not a mild user friendly razor! Try something milder, it may change your mind about DE razors.The reason I liked the Sensor (not the Sensor Excel) was because it gave a very good shave but also the blade depth was extremely narrow; it did have a lubrication strip (unnecessary in my opinion) but it had no rubber strips (also unnecessary in my opinion). meaning that it could get into all the nooks and crannies with ease.
The Gillette Guard as I understand it is single blade disposable razor, which has been designed for emerging markets, there have been a few postings on this thread recommending it. Obviously, the same as with many disposables, the use of excessive plastic is an issue. Even when a disposable razor's head fits a Sensor handle, there is still the issue of continually throwing away the associated plastic razor handle, which is so unnecessary. Of course the answer is to bring back the Sensor, but that as we know, will not happen.
TobyC, I used the Mühle R41 TWIST open comb safety razor in chrome during my trials with the DESR, but I was constantly cutting myself, which was taking days to heal. I was also using soap lather and a brush, which also took much more time than the Gillette Gel, which I find acceptable. I also found that to keep the razor looking good (it has a highly polished chrome finish) needed added attention. It was also extremely difficult to get the areas directly under the nose free of stubble and when one tried the open blade often used to cut into those areas. But as they say never say never.
In the same spirit, i found the Wilkinson Sword Plastic Classic DE razor to be (in my limited experience) to be very impressive when a rapid and relatively safe DE shave is needed. The elliptical head seems to provide a lot of protection and a lot of flexibility in shave angle, so it is a real contender for a "shower shaver"Without trying to cause offence, I usually am not happy about DE enthusiasts pushing DE razors in a cart thread. However, I bought the Fatip Testina Gentile a few months back and a Muppet could shave with it. Carry on as you were...
