Still using the Bluebeard & Gillette Blues but today I had allowed 3 days growth to occur. I don't know whether any of you bum fluffed babys realise it, but as you mature (allright get older) the beard tends to toughen up. So 3 dyas growth basically left little skin exposed and a nice wiry growth. As with my previous experience, no problems at all. If anything I find the Gillettes almost too sharp and have to be quite accurate in what I do. Not the sort of blade I would like to be using when I had other things on my mind. That said a perfect shave. Will keep going, I suspect by about shave 4 I will have broken the blade in.
