Product Reviews
Great blades
I found these were very comparable to Feather blades, though perhaps not giving as close of a shave. Still virtually no irritation for 3 shaves, so a great other option.
Good Shave
I will admit that this is not the best in my blade box of over twenty brands but it is still a good blade. Shave was comfortable after I got the right setting on my "Fatboy". Perhaps that made the difference. But that's why I use it.
Not the right blade for me
I've become convinced that blades are deeply personal and depend on a number of factors, including razor, technique and possibly even quality control within a brand.

In any case, I like to change things up every now then as well as meet WCS's $80 minimum for free shipping, so I thought I'd try a 5-pack of these. German made blades with Italian roots. Hmmm. Shades of my Panerai.

Frankly, my experience wasn't great. My EJ89L never drew blood, but I felt the blade tugging time and again. However, I see there are many very positive reviews, so I suggest you try for yourself as these might just be the blades for you.

Another thing I didn't care for was the packaging. The blades come in a paper pack rather than plastic, so you have to create a way to safely dispose of the used blades as there's no separate storage in the Bolzano pack. I put them away in one of my opened Derbys (a brand I adore, btw). Not a huge deal had I liked the blades as I aways have some opened plastic packs in my bathroom drawer but just thought I'd mention it.
smooth and sharp
Very happy with these. On a whim, I thought to buy them and give them a shot since I've not really been pleased with my current rotation (Wilkinson Sword and Gilette Yellows). Contrary to what others have experienced, the Bolzano shaved smoothly in my DE89 razor. No weepers, DFS in 2 passes, and didn't really have to go too slowly either. We'll see if that keeps up with the R41 next time my beard gets a bit longer. But, for shaving once every 1-3 days, these do the job lovely. Have already ordered the 100 pack.
used the bolzano blade for the first time and found it comparable to a disposable. not very comfortable. the astra blade was head and shoulders above the bolzano.
comparable to Feather
$3 for 5 Bolzanos, compared to $4.50 for 10 Feathers. I enjoyed these blades, though. If you like Feather, give these a try. I think it isn't about superiority to Feather. Unless you take your shaving really seriously. It is the novelty of trying something new.
