This is a heavily edited version of my previous review and I think that it more accurately reflects my thoughts on this product. My first shave with a Merkur blade (the one that was packaged with the razor) was a total disaster. Numerous nicks and as bad a case of razor burn as I've ever experienced in my 50 years of shaving. One shave and that blade went into the trash.
I pretty much blamed myself for the problem, thinking that I needed to get used to DE shaving again. Though there is some truth in that, I now know that the problem had more to do with the blade than with me. I had also ordered some additional Merkur blades and the difference between them and the free blade was amazing. Not that I became an overnight sensation with a DE, but even my second DE shave was a lot better and I hadn't changed anything other than the blade.
So far, I've used about 30 Merkur blades and it's become one of my favorite brands. I get between 5-7 nice shaves from each. I have read elsewhere that I am not the only one who has had problems withe the "free" Merkur blade. Had someone told me this before trying it I might have thought them crazy. Why would Merkur supply a horrible blade with their razors when the profit lies in selling more blades? Had I not already bought additional Merkur blades, they would never have made their way into my razor again.
If I have one criticism of Merkur blades, it's their price. They are good blades, but no better than others selling for a lot less. Crystal Platinum, in particular, gives me at least as good a shave at about 1/3 the cost of Merkur.
My co-worker had tried 8 or 9 different brands of blades; as a result, he had that many for me to try. We both landed on the Merkur as our blade of choice. While the Feather blades seem a tad sharper, these seem... more solid... or something. I get a close shave without feeling like I took off the top 3 layers of skin as well. I rarely get razor burn anymore, and the blades will last for several shaves.
Everything I could hope for and more, and I use them exclusively now.
Blades are a personal thing; what works for one won't work for all, but these are worth at least checking out.
In an experiment, the conclusion of which isn't known, I've broken these in half and used them in a straight edge razor. That my hand is occasionally clumbsy and I knick`myself is no fault of the blade or the razor but rather proves what a good edge they have.
