I just bought a vintage 50's era gillette safety razor. "Missile silo, gold metal, very hefty - It has an adjustment dial that goes from 1-9. At 1 the blade seems to have the most curvature and it appears to decrease as you move the settings up.

What is the closest shave setting? The safest setting etc.

I went on the assumption 1 was the safest, shaved and got a pretty good shave. Had to go over a few sensitive spots with my mach 3 to be satisfied.

Any instructions? I think I need to get better blades as I am using ones I picked up at Home Depot! [:0]

I am going to order some Feather or Merkur blades immediately!
