Cons: do not live up to hype which is somewhat unrealistic
I use these blades with a Merkur 180 long handled razor and have an enjoyable shaving experience every morning. However, I wanted to try to provide a balanced personal perspective on these blades because I see a lot of reviewers providing what sounds to me like a lot of hype. People are attributing godlike powers of hair removal to little pieces of steel. There are reviewers on here saying these blades changed their lives.
I bought these blades because I have a tough beard and need a sharp blade to avoid cutting myself -- sounds like a paradox, but the sharper the blade, the easier it is to shave carefully, with minimal force, and therefore with a minimum of cuts.
These blades are sharp. I work in a fairly professional office with a bunch of bigwigs wandering the halls feeling important, so I need a clean, professional looking shave every morning. I get that with these blades. But they do not reduce my beard to sub-molecular thickness after a single pass, which I've seen claimed by some reviewers on here. In the interest of full disclosure I will say that I do not have as extensive a "pre-shave" routine as some.
I don't use a carefully strategized sequence of oils, creams, and other products to prepare my beard for the moment of actual shaving. What I do is soften up my beard with a hot shower and then some time with a steaming hot wash cloth, then apply shaving soap with a standard badger brush. Then I shave.Read more ›
I used them for the first time without having to meditate under a bodhi tree, or snatch a pebble from my master's hand...and I managed to complete a two pass shave without having to use my bath towel as a tourniquet. I did not approach the shave any differently. There was no special prep...no extra focus, or steadying of a nervous hands. I simply shaved in the same manner that I would shave when using a personna, voskhod, gillette yellow, or astra.
These are very good blades. They are sharper than most and can chew you up if you use an aggressive razor. But, they are nothing to be intimidated by. If you aren't cutting yourself with your Derby or Merkur blade, then you probably won't cut yourself with these. All that you have to do is exercise the same, rational, prudent amount of caution that one would while holding any razor honed metal up their throat.
I would like to begin reviewing this item by saying, "if you are sampling blades to find the one that gives the most comfortable shave, I do believe you need to try these." I would wait however (if you are new to DE shaving) until you have practiced with a few others first (where you rarely nick yourself). You really should have your technique down for ANY of the really sharp blades. I have read many of the reviews on these blades both positive and negative, the negatives made me hesitate for a bit before trying them, it was actually the overwhelming number of positive reviews that finally got me to make the attempt.
I have to say there is a reason for the number of reviews on these blades. They are amazing!!! I have never had a smoother shave, not just in how it cuts but how the blade glides over the skin. If it wasn't for the fact that I could hear the blade cutting hair I couldn't tell that blade was actually shaving (in some areas). I believe that I have pretty good shaving technique and I have yet to suffer a nick with this blade (knock on wood). Even the slight mole on my neck, which I have resigned to just get nicked when I shave has come through unscathed. My face feels great, minimal to no burn (I will admit the minimal burn is from where I have shaved against the grain on my neck which I don't even dare to do with other blades. This is now my go to blade. My search for my best blade has ended here. Of course everyone's best blade may be different I do believe this is a blade to try.Read more ›
