Good, but no great
<p>I started DE shaving the end of June 2014. I use a Merkur Long Handled Safety Razor, Proraso Shaving Soap (eucalyptus and menthol) and an Escali Badger Shaving Brush. This is my second time through the blades. I wanted to get a technique down before writing a review. I purchased Merkur, Feather, Red Personna, Derby Extra, Gillette Silver, Crystal, and Astra Superior Platinum. The Astra gives a decent shave, I didn't get nicked. In fact, I haven't nicked myself one time, since I began DE shaving. The shave was just not as close as I expected. I don't have a thick beard and only have to shave about every three days. The Astra lasted about three shaves before it started to dull. I did take the razor apart after each shave, rinsed and air dried. Not sure if this really helped. I got about three shaves out of the first blade too, without taking the razor apart after each shave.</p>

have gone back to DE razor shaving and experimented with 5 different blades (feather, bolzano, merkur, personna and astra). i shave once or twice a week with a heavy beard. hands down winner for me is astra. smooth and comfortable every time and getting about 4 shaves per blade.

Not for me
I had a horrible experience with these blades, I am nicked all to hell and like one of the other guys I too have stubble that I could not get at with these blades.

The Astra is a very Good Razor Blade
The blade fit right into my old Schick DE razor. After my first shave with this blade I'm impressed. It performed really well; better than the blades I used to get at the local drugstore. It shaved like a dream. If your new to DE shaving you might like this blade as I found it performed the task it was meant to without any issues, no nicks or cuts, and reasonably forgiving I think. I would find it hard to do better. :) I have some other blades I picked here and have yet to try as well but the Astra's are a great quality razor. From Russia with love!

I have been using feather ever since i started they are super sharp and agressive a good blade no doubt. But I just got a sample pack of astra today by far the better blade IMO smooth not to aggresive real good shave best blade I have tried yet dont know if I will even try anymore.

not too bad at all
I would like to be able to compare these DE blades to others available however they are the only ones I have ever bought. I do a three pass shave and these razors do an incredible job every time. I shave every day for work and I change my blade every four days. I would like to try a few more brands before buying a hundred at a time, but for now, they work great!
