Well I had my first shave tonight off a coticule and it was the best damn shave I've ever had. Not because it was the sharpest or smoothest shave, but because it was the first time I honed and shaved with my own razor! Very fulfilling!! I felt that normally where I would have cut myself not a thing happened. No irritation whatsoever and there was some tugging there, because it wasn't the sharpest it could have been. Is this the product of the infamous coticule edge?
