    Great Starter Sampler
    I love this sampler. The Astras ended up being the blade that gave me the closest shave and didn't leave my neck irritated.

    Perfect sampler
    So I've finally made it once through the rotation on all of these. As a note, I have extremely sensitive skin... 1) Personna. Smooth, close, comfortable. I could even shave across the grain without any fear. BBS perfection. 2) Astra. Equally comfortable and confidence inspiring, but not as close without extra passes. Still no irritation though. 3) Derby. 2 or 3 really good shaves then it dulled up pretty quick. A little tugging after the first couple but still comfortable and not much irritation. Not as sharp as 1 or 2 but still nice. I would love to be able to buy a sampler of just 1,2,&3 together. That would be a pretty nice lil rotation. 4) Feather. Ultra sharp. Too sharp for my face. Don't get me wrong, no cuts and I don't think that it was my technique, I just felt like it was peeling my skin off along with the whiskers. 5) Crystal. One shave and I threw it away. Maybe it was too sharp, maybe it was too dull, maybe my face was just being picky today. I couldn't even finish the shave without wiping blood away between passes. I'll give them another chance when their spot comes up again but I'm not looking forward to it. WCS...make the sampler I described above and I'll buy it day one!!!

    Excellent way to start!
    So happy I bought this. I've been using an overpriced blade I bough from a brick and mortar store before I found this page online. I always though "a blade is a blade" do yourself a favor and buy ones of these starter packs, use them all and find one that works well for you. I personally like the Feather and the Derby blades.

    Choice Sample Pack
    This is great for beginners. I bought a 1968 Gillette Slim Boy off Ebay that is in excellent condition. Having never shaved with a DE razor before I bought this pack to start with. The Astras and Red Personas were about the same and good. I used them first. Then the Crystals, which sucked. Don't waste you time with them. The Feathers were WAY TOO SHARP for my bumpy skin, and I was extra careful while trying them and still was a bloody mess. My favorite was the Derby. Sharp enough and forgiving. I got a closer shave than anything else and wasn't torn up. You can use more passes to get a closer, smoother shave and they are durable. I am ordering a 100 pack. Also the Cremo cream is what I use and it is also great.
