Awesome Ninja sharpness from the land of the rising sun...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I first tried DE shaving I used Derby blades and was more than happy with them. However, having heard so many things about Feather's legendarily sharp blades, I was curious and decided to give them a go. They truly are phenomenal. As long as you get a good lather from a quality soap or cream worked up with a decent brush, then you'll never want to use anything else.
Recently, I got low on Feather blades, but as I have a huge stash of Derbys (I bought a pack of 100 and have only used two or three since I tried the Feathers) thought "I'll leave buying more until I've used the Derbys", and now I'm regretting that. The past two shaves have felt like I've been trying to shave with a wood plane. The Derbys always felt great before, now they feel downright awful- rough as a badger's bum, in fact. I decided to write this review after coming on here tonight to order more Feathers - using something other than the Feathers serves as a reminder of just how good they actually are. They last well, and the only time I've ever cut myself was when I dropped my razor and attempted to catch it, and it sliced my thumb for my trouble. Sure, you may take off the top of a pimple occasionally, but there's not a blade out there that won't do that from time to time.
I have no idea what I'll do with the Derbys, but I sure as hell won't be shaving with them any more than I have to!

My story is practically identical to that: I've seventy or so Derby in the bathroom cupboard, and that's where they'll stay as long as Feather are manufacturing.

Exactly the same with me!!! But i just bought a shavette and they take single edge blades and i was wondering if these can be used if they are cut in half?

My shavette certainly accepts them, any shavette that can use a DE blade snapped in hald should be able to also.
