I'll Never Use This On a Body Panel Again
July 11, 2014
So bummed. I really wanted to like this blade. I really did. Alas, it was not to be. Unless the panel you're currently blading is thoroughly covered in water, this thing grabs and squeals like nothing I've ever seen. Or heard. As it stick-slips its way across your prized finish, it leaves behind dashes of water, which you cannot re-blade as there is an insufficient amount of water to lubricate the blade. I was hoping that it would break in and that the grabbing would stop. After four uses, it still grabs and squeals. I will continue to use it on my windows. I'm not worried about marring or scratching those. If it didn't grab like it does, it'd be a great blade. When it works, it works well. It's well built, too. I can't justify using it on my paint, though. If things change, I will amend my review.
Pros:Works well when the panel is thoroughly covered in water; well built; feels good in the hands.
Cons:Grabs and squeals its way across my paint, leaving behind water dashes; Also, water that is squeegeed off the sides of the blade cannot be re-bladed as there is not enough water to "lubricate" the blade.
