Choosing the right blade
Online reviews suggest that fewer blades in contact with the skin can reduce the risk of skin irritation. As such, the Bolin Webb R1, with the three-blade Mach3 cartridge, can provide a gentler shave than the Bolin Webb X1, with the five-blade Fusion5 cartridge.
When dealing with any skin, the number of blades is only one of many factors that can have an impact on the quality of your shave. For instance, a sharp blade perhaps makes the biggest difference (Gillette recommends replacing your blade cartridge every 10-15 shaves, but this will depend very much on the individual and the nature of their beard).
Also, preparing your beard correctly, for example softening with warm water the stubble or beard shadow on your face before your shave, will have big impact on your shave in terms of closeness and comfort.
The more complex the blade, the more it tends to cost. The Fusion5 blade, with its additional features, will cost more than a Mach3 blade. Look out for multipack replacement blade offers that cut down the cost of replacement blades.
There are several five-blade Fusion5 variations available in-store and online that can fit the Bolin Webb X1 razor. Bolin Webb fits its X1 razors with Fusion5 ProGlide blades, with their enhanced lubrication strip for a smoother shave.
