2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality control, 18 Feb. 2012
Bought after seeing the great reviews but unfortunately about 70% of the ones I tried were blunt and didnt last 1 shave. Buy cheap, buy twice applied for me. Gave them away to a mate who binned them as in total agreement with me that they were next to useless.

The sharp ones worked fairly well hence it gets more than a 1 star review.

Are they really that blunt? What other ones would you recommend?

only ones I have used until I got some wilkinson swords and they are much sharper and consistent.

I have had around 3 shaves with these blades now, & each time my face has been red raw. So sore. I get constant cuts. These derby blades feel blunt as hell & it doesn't matter how much lather I use, it seems like I am butching my face with a perfect technique.

I did say they were useless ;)

Haha. I thought I would give them a go...Shocking. Maybe they are good for some people. I was told the feather blades are very sharp. I am going to try the ASTRA Superior Platinum blades now, once my face has cooled down & stopped peeling.

did you buy the astra ? if so how did they work for you ?

Matt Smith says:
No they didn't. The were not very smooth on the face at all. Left my face feeling sore as hell. But, what works for some may not for others. All trial and error. I went for Wilkinson's in the end and they work a treat.

I use Gillette 7 o'clocks, nice and sharp but smooth too, you easily get a weeks shave from them, if you shop around you can pick them up for £10.99 for 100, but even at the average price they go for around £25 it's still much cheaper than a multiblade cartridge.
