Smooth and Sharp
I had used Feathers and Personna blades for years. Though they were plenty sharp, they sometimes caused razor burn. Derby's are not quite as sharp as Feathers, but they also don't irritatate my skin. I will user Derby's for the rest of my shaving life.
Derby Extra Double Edge
It took me trying only 1 other brand of blades to prove to me that Derby has the best blade for me.
Derby=The Magic Blade Shave You Long Time
I'm a daily shaver, heavy stiff beard. In my cabinet I have and use the following blades in a pair of Parker handles and one Merkur: Derby, Astra, Gillette Silver Blue, Pol Silver, Bic, Feather, Vidyut Super-Max, Lord, Personna. My baby-faced buddy and I set that list of blades best (Derby) to worst (Personna - OMG...) after discussing all these blades over lunch one day; we've both used all these blades for several months. I can't believe these Derby's are 15 cents apiece when you buy 100! I can EASILY get 4-5 shaves out of these without drag and nicks (respect to the reviewer that got the nicks, but that hasn't been my experience), and the last shave is darn near as good as the first. I bet I could get another 2-3 shaves out of them, but I get bored using the same blade and there IS a little (tiny) drop-off in performance on those last couple shaves, but wow, none of the other listed blades perform like these vis-a-vis longevity, and at a minimum, they are on par with Astra with comfort and closeness. The Derby doesn't drag like the Astra's after a couple shaves. Quit looking and buy 100 of these, my local British import store in Northern Calif. had a 5-pk of these for $3.50 - - that'll teach me not to buy from WCS! I've bought straight razors and all my stuff from these guys (and I have A LOT of stuff!) and they've never let me down. Out of all my orders - 1 bottle of after shave busted at the neck, replaced no problems no grief with one phone call. WCS rocks, their products rock, and the service rocks! THIS is how it's done.
Great product great price
Great razors at a great price. West Coast Shaving's customer service is also the best so I will always buy here.
smooth as silk shaves great.
Smmoth as silk with my new WC Midnght 84Cseries. Last longer than others I've tried.
