All else being equal, both reviews are likely to be correct. What it depends upon is how well blade X works for a specific individual. No two faces and beards are alike. If they were, there would be no need for so many brands of razor blades.
Given the 4+ star average that Derbys received here, my 2 star rating pretty much sums up my experience with Derby blades. I've tried them and they irritated my face and even drew a little blood. I'm not blaming the manufacturer for these problems, but Derbys simply don't work for me.
Some blades tend to "drag" a little after a few shaves but, on my face, these drag from the first shave and simply get worse. I've tried different shaving angles and 3 different razors and always got a horrible shave. Having to go back over the same areas 4 or 5 times is just not going to result in a comfortable shave and that's what I have to do with Derbys to get a close shave.
I've tried about a dozen brands of razor blades and only 3 brands (Merkur, Personna Red and Crystal Platinum) will find there way into my razor going forward.
Rather than not trying Derbys based on my opinion, I'd suggest buying a small quantity and finding out for yourself if they will work well on YOUR face. They very well could become your favorite blade but the will never become mine.
With the Derby Extras, I can barely feel the blade on my face. Then I look at the shaver after a pass, I can see a lot more whisker shavings in the soap. Nice to have a close shave without casualties.
Thank you for the blades.
Since they are sharp, care must be taken if switching from a different brand. They aren't Feather(tm) blade style sharp but still... they are much sharper than the dual-edge blades my local pharmacy and grocery stores carry. The 7AM blades are nice too but I have to rate the Derby Extras higher for feeling sharper initially and staying sharper after a few shaves.
