5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp, 22 July 2013
Good shave, two years worth for under a tenner.

DE is the best shave going, and these blades facilitate it.

It's red, it's a triangle and it warns road users if set up far enough ahead of the obstruction. I couldn't ask for more, except maybe MP3 and video capability, and a wine dispenser built into the third arm of the triangle. As red warning triangles go this pretty much does the job faultlessly though. Excellent.
