Buying these blades direct from Dorco completely negates the need for a DSC subscription (unless you really can't live without DSC shave butter and other male grooming goo). I've cancelled my DSC membership as a result of buying and using blades directly from Dorco. Now I have the DSC Executive handle (which Dorco also sells BTW), I'll just buy the blades from here from now on. The five-pack should last you 4-5 months, assuming you change to a fresh blade every week like I do.
The only snag with the Pace 6 blades is you need to rinse them vigorously and frequently
The blade does last a very long time even using an inexpensive gel (Gillette) I get very good results .What I do insist on is a very god post shave balm .
Do not be fooled by all the hype about electric shaving it is very short lived as when the beard gets

These packs are the only way shop for Gillette Fusion Men's Razor Blades as they can be pretty pricey on the high
high street at the moment is extortionate.
The cost of these for a ten pack is at least half way reasonable
on that basis alone I give five stars.

Let me be clear. My facial skincare 'regime' is simple:
- wash with non-SLS gel (Bulldog if you need to know)
- shave with brush and a nice soap (Edwin Jaeger)
- Osama Alum Block
- Geo Trumper extract of Lime skin food.
- that is all. Nothing else. Ever.
7 months in and the corners are rounded. Other than that it's hardly worn at all.
Stop reading and buy it.
After shaving I washed my face with warm then cold water.
Next I opened one end of the Potassium Alum Block, which is packaged in a traditional style card box, and wetted it with cold water.
Rub the stone over where I shaved, it stung slightly as I had a few nicks.
I always bleed, sting and itch profusely when I shave as I have sensitive and weak skin, but this appeared to stop the bleeding, stung for a few seconds and hasn't itched all day.
I then left it on the side to dry with the side of the box open, when it appeared dry after shower etc I closed the box.
My block was intact, but from what I've seen in the comments people have had broken stones, which should be returned and replaced for refund.
Wish I found
Anyone who has done the switch from commercial multi-blade razors with self adjusting heads to DE will tell you that you will get the inevitable odd nick here and there, as DE razors are great but don't naturally follow the contours of the face and are not forgiving to those that don't respect them, it takes a little practice before you master the correct angle for perfect shaving and even then there's always that time where you're in a rush and turn butcher from careful user. It's at this time that this product is a life saver, especially if you're wearing a white collared shirt!
When you receive the alum block (mine turned up in perfect condition with no breaks) you are surprised at how small it is,

My old handle was wearing out which was the manual version of this one, and so decided to invest a few pounds more and purchase the power version.
Mine came with the battery already inserted, and was ready to go straight out of the packaging. It is very quiet, just a small humming sound, it feels so nice on the skin, you can barely feel that it is even on your skin. As always when shaving you must use soap, shaving gel, or hair conditioner before shaving to decrease irritation.
Yes hair condtioner. Try it. Leaves your skin so soft..
Anyway it shaved very closely, was great for my underarms and legs, obviously as the blades are so close together you will need to rinse the blade
I've been stung in the past buying blades on eBay - judging by how they shaved, they were not originals. No messing this time. These ones ARE genuine, and the best you can get.
On a positive note, blades are interchangeable with older model which is always a good touch.

Combined with the Parker 99R barberpole butterfly razor, i think i may have just found the shaving partnership for life.

So... I thought I found the perfect solution for the very expensive Quattro for women blades. But I discovered that the men's ones are less sharp and when shaving the bikini area they irritated my skin and I had to throw them away after just one use. So I'm back with the Papaya & Pearl "lady" colour, extra expensive Women's Razor blades. Sorry.
Ladies... this fits perfectly for your women version. And it's half the price!! I've never been so aware of the pink tax until I bought this. Is the exact same thing but advertised for men. Therefore, is cheaper. It's honestly ridiculous.
First of all to confirm that the sensitive blades fit the same handle as the non-sensitive blades. They come in identical packaging and fit in the same way - I comfortably get five shaves from each blade with each shave consisting of face and head with WTG (With the grain) and ATG (Against).
I find the non-sensitive blades are comparable to the Gillette Fusion but the sensitive ones cause less irritation - and they are a lower cost too making them an attractive option.
I highly recommend these blades.

The back of the blades also has a single blade which is meant to be good for more precision, although I've never found a need to use it.
They easily clip into the razor and adjust angle automatically for your face.
If you're looking for a great shave, this is the product for you.
Quality? Thats the question. Previous purchases from the high street - each blade would last 4-5 weeks. After 1 week I'm noticing a deterioration and after 3 they need changing.
Imitation? Seconds? I don't know -but there is a definite change in quality.

Have to say that these newer blades definitely don't last as long as the older versions and are more expensive.
Best to buy in bulk for best value.

I'd previously used Gillette's 5-blade razor, but I get much more usage out of these blades, and they make for a great close and smooth shave.
Very nice clean shave and the blades seem to stay sharp for a good length of time so very happy with purchase.
Ordered from Amazon Prime so great delivery.
Often on promo on Amazon, worth getting when these are on..

I use them a few times a week for armpit & leg hair removal, followed by shaving the hard skin & corn off my feet, and still each blade lasts me around 2 months (long after the white strips have worn away). I just don't feel like switching to a new (micro-)style of blade when I know these are great and the original handle is probably going to last another 15 years.
So grateful for Amazon search as now hard to source locally. Good job one of us likes the internet!!

The razor comes well packaged and has a very premium look. The leather pouch is a nice touch, especially if you want to travel with this in your bag.
The blades are easy to change and the razor is comfortable to hold. I found that the razor is a little light in weight and feel that something a bit heavier would be easier for me to use, but this is personal preference.
Overall, it is great value and perfect for the job!

Firstly, I should say that other than their shapes, the stick and puck are absolutely identical in every way that I can tell.
The first thing that will hit you is the smell - it's quite difficult to describe, but the best word I can find is "clean". Imagine the smell of linen that has been dried on a line just downwind of a lemon grove. The citrus is definitely there, but it's very subtle and certainly takes a back seat to the linen/soap scent. I'm pretty sure I've opened the tub up and taken in a lungful more times than I've actually shaved with it.
Loading the brush takes under 30
To be honest though, I'd recommend purchasing the stick rather than the bowl as it's a lot easier to use as I can apply it directly to my face and then lather.
Definitely worth trying and I'm sure you will be back for more.

Bought it to use with a safety razor but didn't like having to be sooo careful and slow as i like to shave in the morning before work.Now I use a gillette profusion razor and will never use canned shaving creams/gels ever again.

Having tried its main competitor Gillette, plus some others like those internet start-ups, I can say that they provide a good shave in comparison, with some PROS and CONS of course. For the sake of simplicity, I will focus only on Wilkinson vs. Gillette experience for comparison.
I must say that I use this product (and those on the past) to shave the face and my head, even though none of them are really designed for head shaving.
On the negative side, these Wilkinson razors are not as flexible as Gillette’s latest offer, the shaver head can be a little stiff and you generally feel less adaptation to the shaving. Also, and this will be included as a PRO as well, the razors use a “guard” system to reduce irritation and cuts and whilst it works perfectly, it reduces razor contact with the skin which
I have used several razors over the last 40 years and this unfortunately is amongst the worst.
There is no way I could shave with this razor each morning before work as my face was a mess with blood.
A real shame as I read all the positive reviews and thought this would be great.
Told by seller that as I had opened the packaging no refund could be offered, not quite sure how I could have found out how bad the razor was without opening it though. Therefore I am out of pocket and gone back to Gillette Fusion Pro-Glide which in my opinion is far superior if somewhat more expensive.

As this is soap, you will find it lasts a lot longer than shave cream. Just pay attention to prices as they fluctuate by a wide margin.
Anyway, if you can afford it and want something you're really going to enjoy, treat yourself and get this.

He has dabbled with cheaper razors, tempted by an offer in any one of the high st retailers or supermarkets - but he always end up leaving his shave a few days longer than I would like - so I bought him some new "heads" for his existing handle that was sitting in the shaving cup. He doesn't have any preference for "Power" or non "Power" with both giving him the shave he so often needs !
There really is no other blade to choose - for him that is.
The racerblades housing has a different shape and it's diffently another cafity which was used. I dont know if there has been any product updates so far. The upper spong is bigger than by my old blades on the other hand are the rivels on the downside smaller and not as long. I would also say the blades have a different engel. During the first shaving I had the feeling that the shaving wasnt as smooth as usual... for a test i reactivaded my old shaverblades (they were already used and woren out) ... left leg new blades right leg old blades.... the right side (old blades) was in my opinion slightly better.... not a good sign at all. I will test the shaving blates the next few times and will update further infos here
