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.
