This is day 4 on the same Wilkinson Sword DE blade, trying to take it to exhaustion in order to establish its real and “normal” useable life-span, prior to doing the test of the Razorpit.

The blade, surprisingly, continues to perform well, although it is getting a little draggy, and the alum block tells a tale of somewhat heightened irritation. I’m sure I’ll get 5 shaves out of it at this point, but can’t count on six. The risk of getting nicked rises as the blade gets rougher and unpredictable.
