One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is, "What blade do you recommend for me?" Because each man's beard is different, there is not a simple answer to this question. One man may be suffering from tugging because a blade is too dull to cleanly cut his hair, while another man may be experiencing irritation from the same blade that is too sharp for him. We've expanded our article Choosing the Right Blade to include a new ranking system to describe the sharpness of different blades, and we've added more descriptions of other popular brands of razor blades. This article provides a starting point for a new wet shaver in determining which blades to try to see what works best for you.
