Extend the Life of Your Razor Blades – Confirmed Using Microscope
After reading Extend the Life of Your Razor Blades with Your Forearm and Extend Your Razor’s Life with a Pair of Jeans I thought of putting this to test if it actually works; like the Myth Busters guys. I used a 500X digital microscope to take the pictures before and after sharpening the blades. This blade was used for more than 3 months or approx 80 uses before sharpening. I performed forehand sharpening method 25 times and jeans sharpening method then 25 times.
This is a brand new blade no uses at all.
