Feather DE Blade Review...

These blades are my personal favorite DE or double edge blades to use in all of my safety razors. The price point is a bit on the high side at $4.50 for a package of 10 blades which is $.45 cents per blade over at West Coast Shaving Supplies, but some places charge as much as $8.50 for a pack which is not nessecary so please shop around. West Coast Shaving seems to have the cheapest price point for these blades at $4.50 for 10 blades. One blade is good for 8 shaves before having to replace it which is awesome. The package itself also has a used blade storage comparment which makes disposal alot easier. These blades are made of stainless steel so you won't have to worry about rust. These paticular blades are excessively sharp which is really good for my medium beard and if you have a really coarse beard, then these will definately be your first choice. The post shave will be a little rough until you get to the 3rd shave if you have sensitive skin like I do. The first shave you'll have to take alot longer due to the extreme sharpness of these blades so please use caution. After the 3rd shave is completed, you'll notice that the post shave gets much smoother as you go along. The 8th use of these blade are still very good but the post shave starts to fall off a bit, but not much. The 9th shave pretty much told me that these baldes had reached their limit. They started to pull and tug really bad on my trouble spots and started to leave some stubble behind and the smoothness of the post shave was just about gone. For me, one 10 pack of these blades are good for 80 shaves. Now for those that have light beards, one 10 pack of thse blades could be good for 100 shaves (2 extra shaves per blade) at the most. Now for those that have heavier beards, you will probably not get more than 6 shaves per blade and only one shave will be needed to break in the blade for comfort. The smoothness will also start to fall off at around the 5th shave. I will be looking at getting these in bulk here pretty soon, but not just yet.
