Author: Dan at The Shaving Shack We're very impressed with these blades here at the Shaving Shack. Being in the lucky position of getting to test drive new products, I loaded my Merkur Progress with one of these last week. These blades really are sharp and smooth and comparable to the Wilkinson Sword, Merkur and various Personna blades I've tried. I am pleased to report no cuts and my test blade lasted me a week / 6 shaves.
Author: Paul Jennings These are good quality blades that give a close shave. I found them comparable in both sharpness and durability to more expensive Ďbrandedí razor blades. I averaged about seven shaves with one blade which make them every economic, especially if you compare them to disposable razors.
Author: Seppi Evans Before my Merkur 34C arrived I bought some Boots DE blades, and comparing to them is like Day and Night. These blades are sharp, stay sharp for days on end and I get no rash at all. When checking the blade after four days with your finger you may well find a plaster comes in very hand.
Author: Andy Finn Got 30 of these as a free gift having bought a merkur futur. I alternated between these and the 10 merkur blades. You can notice a difference between them but in terms or quality they more than do the job and last equally as long. They are sharp and crisp in the razor really do offer value for the money. At the price and the time each lasts 30 is going to last me nearly 6 months.
Author: Mike Eadie I received 30 of these blades as a free gift. I get about 7 shaves out of them. Unlike some blades I've tried they don't rust easily. They seem to be as sharp as other blades at a reasonable price.
Author: Matt Smithers Personally, I found a huge difference between these and the blades that came with my Merkur DE razor. I have very stiff stuble and can't use these blades more than once - the Merkur's lasted for two shaves at least! I will be buying some of the Feather blades as soon as they come back in stock!!!
Author: David Barlow These blades provide an awesome result when teamed up with the 34C, Omega cream and a little , very hot water and a little patience. Absolutely first class; enjoy!!
Author: Dorian Langlais This is a good razor blade, but i don't like it so much... Compare to the Derby, they are a little more agressive, the quality of shaving is less good.
But this is only my think.
Author: D. Wotherspoon These little blades give a really smooth, close shave. I have very fine, dense growth and have always had a problem finding something gentle enough to not irritate my skin, while aggressive enough to cut down each hair without too many passes. These blades seem to be the perfect match for me, gently mowing each hair down in just two passes. My girlfriend says I've never been smoother, and at approximately 26 pence per blade, there's no way I could ever complain.
Author: Mikko Jaakkola I ran out of the old unnamed Gillette blades my grandfather gave me. I quickly started looking for a worthy replacement.
I ordered a pack of these Israeli blades, Feather blades and Derby blades. I also ordered Treet originals and Gillette 7 O'Clocks.
These, the Israeli blades: three passes, no irritation, result smooth as if shaven by the old unnamed Gillette blades! These blades are sharp enough to cut the hair without problems, but the shave is still smooth as not to irritate my skin. I am well satisfied.
Author: Harry Weatherall ive tested the israeli blades on my stubble and find they last about 2 days before they return the perfomance of a cheap supermarket brand disposable, for me its got to be the feathers BANZIA.
Author: Craig Carroll I cannot understand how these blades are thought to be so good. Every one I've tried feels blunt and always irritates my skin. These are going in the bin, that's how bad they have been for me.
Author: Gary Martin I got a pack free when i bought a Merkur 42 Nickel "1904 Replica" and they seem to work very well together; sharp and very smooth, i'm going to be trying others but the mark has been set high
Author: Chris Maguire Blades are pretty decent. Not as sharp as feather but what is?
Got about 3 good shaves some times only got 2. But on a whole great blades.
Author: Iain Doherty Used these blades for the first time yesterday, I have think growth and sensitive skin and was finding it hard to find a blade that worked well with my blue beards revenge shavette, I have tried many blades this last two weeks and this blade was head and shoulders above the rest.
Author: Damian Bloomfield What a fantastic blade, i dropped one of these in my new merkur slant bar and boy it shaves well. 3 passes with no irritation to my neck, for the money i am very pleased indeed.
Author: George Thompson Just switched from the Derby to these. Im using them with my Merkur Futur, and think that they are much better, sharper and smoother shave.
Author: Les Brand These blades came free when I ordered my Timor DE razor and Proraso shaving cream, which I bought these about 2 months ago when I decided to give DE shaving a try. I canít see me changing back to multi blades ever again now.
These are the only make of blades that Iíve used up until now so I can only compare them to when I previously used multi blades. Without doubt I get a much closer shave and in the 2 months Iíve used them Iíve never cut myself at all.
I shave every day and these blades last about 5 to 7 days each so value for money wise they are very economical. I will try another make of blade in the near future but for no other reason than curiosity as I have no concerns at all with these blades.
Author: Colin North Not for me. After 3 months DE shaving, tried one in my Gillette slim and my travelrazor. They tug and just do not give as good a shave as my normal Wilkinsons. On to Derbys and Feathers in that order!
Author: Matt Mckenny Bought these blades as the Merkur blades were tugging my whiskers..they are definitely sharper!
But I quickly changed to Feather as I was looking for an even sharper shave...yes I have a course beard and sometimes have to shave twice a pay.
Author: Simon Daniels Not sure about this one - good shave but not particularly smooth; resulting in a few nicks in any razor, mild, medium or aggressive. Cheap and cheerful though.
