I'm new to using DE razors and read that finding the correct blade is a BIG part of getting a good shave, so naturally (before I bought a 100 pack), I bought the EVERYTHING Sample pack. What can I say? It's beautiful! I didn't get any Shark or Derby blades, but DID get a selection of HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ones! I went through countless online reviews to find the LOWEST rated blade brand that was included, and started with that one.
Enter the Lord Super Chrome.
I read a ton of reviews trash talking the Lord brand and decided to see if it was as bad as they said it was. (Understand that WCS was SUPER GENEROUS and provided ONLY highly recommended blades.) I lathered up my face with some Col. Conk Bayrum and began!
All I can say is: HOLY S***!
Even with the most HATED (online) blade, I was able to get a wonderful close shave with zero stubble. Modern plastic cartridge razors are WORTHLESS! Now granted, my beard isn't the thickest beard in the world, but nonetheless: WOW. Anyone new to DE razors needs to buy this Everything Sample Pack. Yes you'll pay a tad more per blade but it's a great selection. No bent/curled/damaged in shipping blades, they're all in their original box.
My pack included (SS Stainless):
5 Lord Super Chrome,
10 DORCO SS,
10 Crystal SS,
5 Wilkinson Classic,
5 KAI SS,
10 MERKUR SS,
5 Personna Platinum,
5 ASTRA Platinum,
10 Feather Hi-Stainless,
5 Rapira Swedish Supersteel,
5 Rapira Platinum Lux,
10 DORCO Platinum,
5 Gillette Silver Blue (Russia),
5 Gillette 7 o'clock Sup SS (Rus),
5 Gillette 7 o'clock SharpEdge (Rus),
5 Gillette NACET SS (Rus),
5+2 Gillette 7 o'clock Sup Plat. (India)
Such a wonderful selection! Thank you, WCS, for making my decision SO EASY! You've really helped me out!!
