Not recommended on thick facial hair; a solid introductory blade
Normally a very good shave, problems with pulling and irritation after use, never very smooth

I'm newer to wet shaving, these are the first blades I tried with my Merkur 34c. Prepared my face, used preshave oil, and cremo shave creme each time. The shave was super smooth multiple times with these blades. Had an issue with my neck breaking out after use though, I'm not sure if it's my inexperience but when I switched to sharper blades my skin was less irritated.
These are fine blades. Sharp and smooth. I've found none better at this low price.
How can I put this? These blades are like baby bear porridge: not overly sharp, not too dull. They are just right for me. They are not as sharp as a Feather, but far sharper than an Astra. They are also more durable than the Gillette Silver Blues and cheaper than the 7:00 Blacks. These blades give me a close shave with no irritation. My only complaint is that at this time WCS does not have them in bulk. FWIW, my facial hair is fine to medium and very dense.
A very good blade that I am satisfied with. If I take the Personna blades as a benchmark, I'd say it comes close to it, this one being slightly sharper and slightly less smooth. YMMV.
