I can't believe all of you have had such good results. I've had about 5 shaves with the Mach 3 Turbo blades and absolutely can't stand them. I've fared much better with the original blades, both in getting a closer and smoother shave. The extra comfort strip on the Turbo blade makes me feel as if it isn't shaving anything at all, and I find myself going over the same areas quite frequently, while at the same time not achieving a close shave. I don't know though; I have an extremely angular face which may have something to do with ineffectivness of the blades. Anyway, I've given up on shaving. Two months ago I bought a beard trimmer and since then have maintained neat stubble. All this despite buying a gorgeous chrome, badger hair brush, razor, and bowl set for christmas.
