Had a nice clean shave ..Thanx

I had used So Many Branded razor But Spruce Stream is Best ever Razor,Very Very Smooth shaving experience
I ordered a Spruce Streak6 recently. I was looking for a cruelty free razor blade, and they were offering a discount, so I decided to try it.
The packaging is very nice. I received one razor handle, five blades (one four pack, and one blade attached to the handle) and one travel carrier attachment. The handle is solidly built with a nice weight. The travel carrier looked somewhat flimsy, but works well now. You need to take off the plastic blade sleeve to use the carrier, which in my opinion, is a minor inconvenience.
The blades are superb. However, precisely because there are six blades, the inter-blade gaps are very small, which makes the blade surface almost plane and while shaving, the usual sensation of a sharp edge passing over the skin is missing. This is especially true as I am migrating from a three blade Gillette Mach 3. Due to this, during the first shave, I was not even sure if the blade was shaving at all, and ended up applying high pressure and experimenting with all sorts of angles. So, expect a learning curve: just apply a light pressure, go with the grain, and do not worry if you feel as if a flat non-sharp surface is brushing your skin. If in doubt, shave by touch. The blades are very sharp and they shave extremely well.
There is a downside of the low inter-blade gaps; cleaning the blade is a pain. With Mach 3, all residue washes off easily from between the blades under a running faucet. Here, they may not, especially if you are shaving a few days' growth, and you will probably waste a lot of water trying to clean it completely. So the best would be to wash it quickly after every stroke, and finally to dip it in alcohol to make sure all water is cleaned.
How long will the blades last? I have no idea yet, but if debris gathers between the blades, it will probably not perform as long as a three blade one. I will have to wait and see. The good point is that Spruce says that all their cartridges fit all handles, so I can switch to a three blade or five blade Spruce cartridge if I want to.
Overall, it is an excellent razor. The price is also significantly lower than more well known brands like Gillette. Finally, for me, that it is completely cruelty free is extremely important and I would most certainly give it five stars.
The shave was very clean, easy and smooth.
Very good shaving experience. All items are as expected.
