- safety razor
Bic's the best
I'm 74, been wet shaving since a teenager, grandpa showed me how to use a straight razor, used it until I was about mid 60's. It's hard to shave with glasses on, especially with a straight razor, so it was time to use a double edge safety razor. Only time in all those years I didn't use the straight razor was in basic training at ft.knox, weren't allowed to have them. Anyway, I have tried just about every double edge blade out there, I used the feather and Bic blades for abut a year before I decided the Bic was better, not at all because of the price, which is a unbelievable price, there better, and I have a rough beard. Try them, there the best. Happy shaving.
The ones for me
I've been through two variety packs, and found these to be the ones for me. Not that others were bad, but these seemed to fit my razor so I didn't have to manually adjust to maintain a parallel edge. Also they seemed best from a non irritant stand point.
My New Favorite
I have bumped this blade to the top of my list this month. I had let my beard from a bit more than normal for me and used this blade to get back in the swing and thought it was a well above average shave. been using it regularly and just purchased more. May change latter but for now it is my go to.
Probably won't buy again.
First 2 shaves were fine. 3rd shave left me looking like I shaved with a cheese grater. I'll use the rest of the tuck at some point. If things go better, I'll come back to update this review. In the meantime, I've had MUCH better luck with a Dorco 301, Wilkinson Sword, and Rapira.
Not every blade suits every person or every razor, but these are amazing for my Shavette and my beard and skin type. Comfortable shaves with almost no irritation. I can't complain.
