MEOW! Is there a reason you cannot enjoy this thread, and learn from it (both positively and negatively)?

If you truly believe this is not what you want then why not state it without the innuendo?

Nonsense, it looks pretty scientific to me

Rockwell blade

pretty cool! I think whatever the white item is on the end of the blade isn't as far out on the rockwell blade as it is on the crystal blade. I don't know if that'll change the flex in the blade at all or not though.

I'm curious to see what an injector & a standard GEM SE blade would look like!

That "white thing" is a pack of blades sir! Sounds like it's been too long since your last shave if you've forgotten what one looks like Smile

However I agree, it does look to be favored more center on the Rockwell.

I thought that's what it was...you never know though!

I shaved this afternoon. Big Grin

Sorry! It was done quickly and in somewhat of a rush. To be fair, the remaining distance looks to be the tab of the blade, which is statistically significant in terms of area.

On the other hand, I'd have to try it again, but even that minute difference leaves a significantly less band in the blade. Even though metal stressing tends to be an exponential property, I'm not sure (visually and non scientifically) that it would make a difference.

I'll have to try it again, but that means sacrificing two more blades!

don't be sorry. it's a pretty cool little test though. would trying it on a used blade offer anything negative that a new blade would negate?

I changed blades this morning, so I don't have a used blade available. I used two new ones for this test.
