Works on my face. And I was a little sceptical using this blade since it came with my Merkur Progress razor. A lot of the reviews are 50/50. But, I decided to give it a shot. Man, what a shave! I was really surprised on how well it cut through my whiskers (3 day growth) and gave me one of the closest shaves ever with just 2 passes and a quick touch up. Now 3 shaves in and still as good as a result as the first shave. Goes to show every face is different and hair types as well. My go to blades are Personna Reds, Polsilver Super iridiums and Astra Platinums. All 3 have one thing in common, they are sharp, smooth, and have great durability. So far this Merkur Super might find its way into my rotation. And it works just as well, if not better on my Merkur Futur as well. Split one in half and tried it on my Dovo Shavette and worked like a charm. Very nice blade. I'm impressed.
