Ha! I just finished buying 100 Astra Superior Platinum blades and then noticed this thread. I am nearing the end of a sampler pack I bought at the beginning of the year. It was fun to try quite a few different brands but I'm settling on Astras for now as they are great all around for me.

Has anyone experimented with different shaped bowls? The one I'm currently using is okay but I wonder if something else might be better for lathering quicker.
