- one day of growth
- shaving in the shower
- Edge shaving gel
- Dorco Pace 7 on right side of face
- latest and greatest Gillette Fusion 5 ProShield with Flexball on left side of face
- third shave for each cartridge
Results: More or less equivalent.
Still to try: Dorco Pace 6 Plus ($6.50 for handle and two cartridges; free shipping and no sales tax collected for MA residents). This one has a single trimmer blade in addition to its 6 regular blades, so it is more directly comparable to the Gillette product.
- a 2014 review of the Dorco Pace 6 by a serious shaver-experimenter. He concludes that the Dorco product “is comparable to the Gillette Fusion Proglide” (but he had only 6 blades, not 7, at the time!) and that the Dorco cartridge is good for 20 shaves before requiring stropping (i.e., being thrown away, since a new one is less than $2).
