For my face, these blades represent a perfect middle ground between sharpness and smoothness. Forgiving, but still capable of delivering a great shave, even in a mild razor. I've been using them a long time, and only got one dud, so these are pretty consistent blades, too. If Feathers are too sharp, and Derbys too dull, you need to try these blades. The price for 100 is pretty unbeatable. Thanks for the great deal WCS!
