Author: IAN EMAMDEE (email@example.com) great blade and very sharp as ive used it without any irration what so ever
Author: Giorgio Lamanna Fantastic blade. Sharp and smooth. I used to shave with gillette blue extra, found in france at 2 euro / 10 and i feel ok with them but these are much better. ..putted in my gillette 80 super adjustable, you don't feel like you 're shaving, actually you don't feel anything but you shave beautifully without itch and with a smoothest that merkur only can dream. highly recommended!!
Author: Ryan These are very sharp blades, while not the sharpest on the market they are very smooth and have worked wonders cutting my thick hair. They're abit more expensive than some other blades but are well worth the investment.
Author: Andrew Kerensky No wonder this blade is out of stock! Gives the comfort of a Mach 3, very sharp but offering a gentle shave at the same time. I like to match these blades up with my 1930's vintage GILLETTE DE.
Author: Siamak Dabirrahmani These blades are produced in St. Petersburg Russia and they are by far the smoothest and most comfortable blade at its price point that I have used to date. These blades differ from the Russian 7 O'clock PermaSharp blades in smoothness and sharpness IMHO. The SharpEdge blades are coated where as the PermaSharp blades are not. I am not sure sure about the same blades that are produced in India, I have not tried them.
I have tried this blade in several razors, and with many different soaps and creams. With every trial run, I get excellent results and of course some are better with certain soap/cream and razor combinations than others but I still get steller results compared to other blades I have used.
I find these blades just as smooth and sharp as Feather but far cheaper. The only thing I feel the Feathers have over the SharpEdge blades is the fact that they seem to last longer than the SharpEdge blades.
If you like Feathers, I urge you to give these a try. They might surprise you.
Author: Mark Woodcock I really like these blades. Extremely sharp and smooth. Not quite as sharp as the Feather blades but I get a very close smooth shave with the 7 O'clock in my Merkur 38C. Good price with free delivery. Highly recommended.
Author: Mark Baker I Had these as my free gift with when i ordered some shaving cream, well there the best free gift i have even had.
smooth comfortable shaves and very close with no irritation to my face
for my face Taylor's sandalwood cream and this blade in my Merkur HD is the best combination that I could wish for :-)
highly recommended give them a try
Author: Steven Carter These are my favorite blades, almost as sharp as Feather but cheaper so better value, though not sure if I'll treat myself to Feather. They last 5-6 shaves, and I have a bit soft growth.
They are sharp so cuts can follow, but a cold final rinse and technique soon gets a comfortable and very close shave. As in all shaves a good pre balm (Proraso) gives a lovely smooth shave and fresh feel; and my wife says it makes me look younger!
Author: andy shenton As a realative newcomer to DE shaving (changing from the ever increasingly expensive fusion blades) I tried a variety of DE blades. I tried a number of different brand of blades but always seem to go back to the gillette and is now my "go to" blade. They may not be the cheapest but price isn't everything! A consistantly smooth shave with no pulling or tugging of stubble no matter if a days growth or 3/4 days either. I normally get 4/5 shaves per blade (or a week if shaving everyday) and at about 10pence a blade using a blade a week a tenners worth of blades (100) last for nearly 2 YEARS ! Using an Edwin Jagger DE89L and gillette 7o'clock blades is a great combination and ideal for newcomers and experienced DE shavers alike. On the downside not quite as sharp as the Feather blades, but there again what is? besides an uber-sharp blade isn't everything, a smooth comfortable shave with no burn or irritation is!
Author: Justin Robinson I switched to these from Feather blades and have found them to be superb. The Feather blades were too (thats right) sharp and I find these are perfect for me. No more irritated post shave face for me!
Author: Steve Maund Tried these with my Muhle R89, fantastic, really really rate these and will definately be buying some more.
Author: Daniel Warry At last I have found my winning combo 1.Proraso pre shave cream 2. Proraso shaving cream 3. Merkur 34C 4. Gillette 7 o'clock blades !!! no burn....no bumps.....no cuts.....no rash !! These blades just seem perfect in my Shavette !! Never knew that the type of blade you use could make such a difference !!
Author: Kurt Muller I tried the Gillette 7o'clock blades alongside Derby, Feather, and an unbranded Israeli blade. They are clearly ahead of the others in terms of being skin friendly and retaining sharpness over 3 days, The worst were Derby (really rough).
Author: Stephen J Baker These blades are sharp enough to deliver a smooth, comfortable three-pass shave for a week (6 days with 1 rest day). I have yet to cut my troublesome neck or chin with these blades.
Author: Neil Robinson Great - the best blades I've tried so far!
Author: Martin C These are great blades, that cause very little if any irritation or razor burn. A real bonus when you've got sensitive skin.
The Maths on one of these Gillette blades vs the Mach 3 ones just goes to prove how over priced the multi blade cartridges are.
Highly recommended as others have said.
Author: Iain Sutcliffe Agree with others on sharpness - the only downside for me is the wax / glue dabs on the blade thats used to stick it to the blade packaging - other than that they are superb in a 34C merkur (for me at least,)
Author: Dave Overall these are the best blades that I've tried so far. They are up there with Feather for sharpness, however they seem to cause less irritation than Feathers. I've tried a couple of dozen blades and for some reason missed out on these even though they're broadly admired and few people dislike them. I'll continue to try more blades but it looks like I may settle for these as the blades I use every day.
Author: Benjamin Sankey As close as you can get to the feather blade, at a much more competitive price.
Author: Adam Lewis I am relatively new to the world of DE. Up until now I was using the Wilkinson Sword blades you can pick up in Boots. I gave these a try and I'm not disappointed! Closer shave and not a single nick! I'll try a feather at some point soon, but at less than £3 for 10, I think these will be my regulars from now on!
Author: Robert Williams Nice sharp blade. Smooth glide and must be now one of my favourites. Nice to see gillette can make a reasonable priced blade!
Author: Carl Stubbs Having used several different blades over the past few months I've finally settled on these. The price is superb (much lower than other sites) and the delivery, even though I chose second class, was two days from ordering. The blade itself are superb - the best blade I've used bar none. I get no irritation or cuts and having ordered 100 of them I think I'll be sticking with them for a good while. Definitely recommended.
Author: James Haile These blades are very sharp. To sharp for me they have left my face burning. These might work for you but they certainly don't for me.
Author: Andrew Kerrison Tried these after not being very happy with shave from the free blades supplied with my razor.
I must say what an improvement, lovely close shave.
I'm glad I took a gamble and ordered 30 at once as I shall be using these for a while.
Great service and very quick delivery even with free delivery option.
Highly recommended blades.
Author: Clive Pepper What a great blade! I started off using the Derby blades that came with my razor, as it was first go with DE shaving I was impressed - I had some razor burn which I thought was probably down to my inexperience (and could have partly been). However following recommendations on here, and from some friends, I decided to try the Gillette 7 o'clock Sharp Edge - initially I was reluctant to get them reading comments like 'very sharp blades' I thought I might hack myself to pieces! I need not have worried as I found this sharpness just makes the shave easier. From the first pass on my face I was immediately impressed - a nice smooth easy cut and no razor burn. I've also got 5 shaves from one blade, particularly if using daily. That said, at the price these blades are for 100, I'm quite happy to bin them after three shaves, so I know I'm using a blade in 'tip top' condition on my face - try them, I fully expect you won't be disappointed!
Author: Neil Bishop Ordered 100 of these blades on the evening of Wednesday 13th February and they arrived on Saturday 16th February. Due to the way they were packaged, they fit nicely through my letter box, so you don't need to be at home to accept the delivery if you order razor blades only. So, for £10.99, I received 100 of the Gillette Sharpedge blades, plus 10 Feather blades as my free gift, free postage, so great value for money.
The blades themselves are superb, very sharp and offer a smooth, comfortable shave. I get an excellent shave, BBS finish when I use these blades in my Merkur 39C Slant Bar razor. I can get away with two passes with these blades - WTG and XTG to get a BBS. Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed with these blades.
Author: Saeed Hussain I have been shaving daily with these for the past week. I am not experiencing the irritation I normally get with other blades. I have previously used Derby, Astra and Feather blades.
Will be ordering the 100 Pack as I have found a new favourite!
Author: Simon Daniels Yes, these are fantastic sharp and smooth blades - probably my second choice after ASCO, but the best thing is the packaging. They really do, with the exception of a bar code, look as if they were made in the Soviet Union during the cold war. An excellent blade comrade!
Author: Christopher Parry Got these for a freebie, and I've got to say I'm very impressed. Felt very sharp, no drag, very smooth and gentle to my skin. Gave me a fantastic shave that seemed to last ages. Recommended.
Author: Thomas Egebęk Hansen I tried these after many month of using Feather blades. I must say that I'm won over by these fantastic blades. They are not as sharp as the Feathers but gives me a close shave without irritation. The Feathers would give me a very close shave but would also leave my face burning all day long.
