When I dumped my electric razor about a year ago, I bought a sample pack of DE blades featuring all the well-known brands. After experimenting with them all I kept coming back to Astra platinum. They leave my face baby-smooth and don't cause the red, irritated bumps that some of the other blades left behind. Astra has since been my one and only brand. Now, that being said, just because these blades are perfect for my face does not mean they will be perfect for yours. Your face may be better suited to Derby, Merkur, Feather, etc. My recommendation if you're new to wet shaving: start with a sample pack and find the blade that works best for you.

Let me start out by saying that a blade that works great for me, may or may not work for you and a blade that works great for you may or may not work for me. There are so many variables that one cannot possibly predict which blades will work for them. That is exactly why you want to try different blades to find which ones work well for you. This is exactly why you will see 5 star reviews along with 1 star reviews for the same blade. Take a look at how many good reviews vs. bad reviews a particular blade gets. If a blade is getting more good than bad reviews then you stand a better chance of that blade working for you, if it gets more bad reviews than good then perhaps you stand less of a chance it will work for you. But this is just an example of the law of averages. The bottom line is you have to try different blades to see which ones work well for you. Period!

I have a collection of about a dozen different de razors and a blade that works well in one razor may not work so well in another razor since each razor presents the blade just a bit differently than another razor. Just another of the variables you will encounter in wetshaving.

When I started wetshaving with a double edge razor I started with an Edwin Jagger DE89 razor and Merkur blades and used that one razor and one type of blade for about 6 weeks whilst developing my technique with this type of razor. Only then did I start trying different brands of blades. Some were worse, some were better. When I tried an Astra SP I was amazed at how smooth of a shave I was getting from these blades. I have tried Astra SP's in several different razors with varying results but always good results. One of my favorite combinations of razor and blade is a Gillette 40's style SuperSpeed razor with an Astra SP blade.

I've been DE shaving for over a year now, and when I started I purchased a sampler pack. I know everyone has different needs and preferences, but I found these to be excellent for sensitive skin. They work great in my old Gillette Adjustable razors, but these really started to shine with my new Edwin Jagger D89LBL. What a combo. 2 pass shave, smooth as can be! And for under $15.00, I use them for 2 shaves and move on. So, let's see, $14.00/100= 14 cents a piece/2 = 7 cents a shave. Ummm, sorry multiblade junk, I'll be buying these from now on.

November 2013 update: Just went through first box, added second. I feel like Charlie opening the Willie Wonka candy bar each time a get a new razor ready. I only use them 2x's, still a great value!!!

I am revewing 5 different DE blades in one which seems off topic yeah... but I think is appropriate so you can get a feel for how this specific blade performs or stacks up to the competition. A little pre-info, I use an Edwin Jagger DE89BL razor and EJ best badger brush with Lucky Tiger aftershave, and either proraso sensitive shaving soap or Dr Harris Lavender shaving soap (I like them both). Sometimes I use a dot of cocoa butter lotion with the lucky tiger if my skin is feeling particularly dry (but usually I like that lucky tiger does not leave much moisturizing behind though as my skin is typically not dry)..

So to the review. I purchased a variety pack containing blades from the following: merkur, personna platinum israeli red version, astra premium platinum, derby, and feather hi stainless.

Here is how I feel after having used up all 5 packs.

Feather: Definitely the sharpest by far, but not my favorite. Seems to easily dig into my skin regardless of my angle or pressure. Really slides through the hair but makes my skin feel unhappy after.

Merkur: Very middle ground. A little too much resistance but all around solid blade if you get a good price or they are your only option.

Astra: I didn't like these very much. Didn't like the way the drag on my face feels or the shave I get from them.

Personna Red Israeli version: My favorite blades, pretty sharp, glides over face nicely, leaves me with no razor burn. A little more expensive though and hard to get on amazon sometimes.

Derby: Solid performer, I don't like them quite as much as the personna reds but they are better for me than merkur and the ones I choose to purchase because they are wicked cheap on a lot of sites.

I know many people will praise the Feather blades but I find Feather blades to be surgically sharp. Too sharp to give a comfortably smooth shave. The Astras actually give me a better shave at a cheaper cost.

With Feather blades, I feel like they doubled down on the cutting edge at the expense of the quality of the shave. By that, I mean that, yes, Feathers are the sharpest blade you can buy but it not only cuts me more but seems to give an inferior shave because it's so harsh on those troublesome areas like the Adam's Apple and just under the chin. I simply can't get a complete shave in these areas that Astras can.
I used to be on the Feather bandwagon but after trying a sample pack that included Astras I can't go back to Feathers. Don't get me wrong. Feathers are amazing for shaving a flat surface but fall short on facial and body contours.

The only complaint I have against Astras isn't really something that bothers me but this is a review so I must be critical. The Astras are wrapped with wax dots that hold the paper wrapping around them. After some use of Astra blades you'll notice that the wax builds up in the safety razor and you'll periodically have to clean it. It's not a big deal since safety razors are stainless steel but it's something I know some people gripe about. When I consider the superior shave and rear price I'm receiving, a little wax isn't anything to worry about.
Another thing I like about these blades is they ship from within the US. Feathers are Japanese and ship from Singapore. You will wait quite a long time as anyone that has ordered anything from Hong Kong can attest to.

I was skeptical of using any product that is made in the former Soviet Union but I've quickly realized that Astras are superior in giving a superior shave.
