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

I didn't cut myself and I went over a skin tag with the razor. If a pregnant lady can shave her legs and find this razor easy to use then no one should have any problems with this razor.
If you are into zero waste then this is the razor for you, male or female. Ditch the disposable razor that's polluting our environment and get the last razor you'll ever need. :)
As my first "double edge razor" I am really, really impressed. Others have mentioned watching Youtube for technique, and that is wise, but shaving like this is not a dark art, it is actually a really, really, good, and close, shave. It's a useful case for travelling, and a well made razor.
Best not be naive, there is a chance of getting a small nick, but then I used to get them with cassette razors, but a Alum block (Osma in my case) soon sorts that out (with a bit of "zing!" ;-) ). Use it after watching a Youtube
Firstly-being mindful to the environment is everyone’s problem, by buying this I am supporting ‘losing plastic’! (This is a big deal to me!)
Secondly-you won’t actually amputate your limbs as was my initial worry. I am literally the most accident prone lady. But I am completely ‘nick’ free.
Thirdly-this doesn’t come with the blades (please remember before you checkout!)
Now my review of the razor. Twisting the end to open it and safely put in the razor. Fantastic.
Make sure you keep the razor on taught skin (so pretty much how we’ve always shaved!) and short strokes. Do NOT press down. Our old plastics have given us dreadful habits. Let he razor flow across

The brush does not loose hairs, each synthetic hair is thicker at the root and goes thinner at the end, badger colour, badger feel, a perfect elasticity is maintained when whet, dry and expected to remain the same over the years of use. I was specifically looking for a synthetic brush, as it does not smell wet dog and dries quicker.
The handle is solid, thick plastic which looks like black glass. It doubles as a stand. The print on it is also of a good quality, pretty, subtle and seems to be able to withstand wear.
The box is a cardboard tube, which looks very presentable, but not suitable for the role of travel
I've held back from reviewing this brush as I wanted to remind myself of how it compared to badger. I've now been able to so here we are.
There's appears to have been quite a revolution in synthetics in the last few years with Plisson leading the charge along with Muele's v1 and v2 Silver Tipped Fiber. Others are starting to copy this technology and knock out very affordable (in the US) and nice synthetic brushes. Over here supply is
Anyway, this Benny's brush is quite a lot firmer. You can easily tell it's synthentic when you touch the long edges of the strands but it's nice and soft and tapered at the business end. I'm currently using the green tubbed Proraso shaving cream and I noticed that it does dig into the cream more so I must end up using more than with my old brush. It's good because it lathers up thickly and quickly. I've always chucked the brush in a cup of warm water for a 1-2 minutes before I start, as the informational pamphlet suggests, but I'm not

Therefore I decided to try this one as it was a bit cheaper and I've only been mainly using a beard trimmer to keep my beard fairly close and the proper razor to do the 'tidying up'.
One of the main areas I've been using the razor most on was a large portion of my facial hair on my neck area under my chin. It's always been extremely sensitive which is why I stopped using the more common razors (Gillette, etc). I am delighted to say that this razor gave me a very close shave effortlessly and also managed to not aggravate my skin.
I've only used it a few times so far but I
The use of a traditional blade means you need to be a little bit careful with this shaver. With too much pressure or a careless scrubbing action you can get cuts, razor burn or

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.
They are quite durable as you would expect from blades that cost this much, and with my stubble being of only average toughness a pack of 4 or 8 last long enough.
Use a decent gel or foam, don't rush, and you'll have a quality shave every time.

For me, this razor and blades is the best I’ve used so far, and I’ve tried a few over the last few years. I’m lucky in that I only need to shave every 3-4 days and I’m still on my first blade, probably about 8 shaves in. I’ve had no issue with the blade clogging, using a Proraso cream and a brush to apply.
For the money, the Dorco seems good value and is a nicely weighted, quality feeling product. What’s nice is the universal mount, meaning you can mix up blades with your handle.

These packs are the only way shop for Gillette Fusion Men's Razor Blades as they can be pretty pricey on the high
Here is a copied and pasted response i found on a shaving forum of a guy who wrote to Gillette asking exactly what was the difference.
'The differences between the Power and Manual Fusion Cartridges are subtle but there are differences. The Power Fusion Cartridges have aloe, vitamin E and natural oils in the lubrastrip while the Manual Cartridges have just aloe and vitamin E. There is also a slightly different coating on the blade of the Power Cartridges. That coating was designed to

While there isn't a huge difference in blades in my opinion, i always get smoother shaves with Astra than most other blades. Seem to go particularly well in Shavettes.
Mileage varies but i usually get between 3-5 shaves from each blade before i feel it tugging and not shaving as usual. But since they're so cheap per unit i swap out as habit now at that point.
An added bonus is the Arko soap. Once you get past the strange (but not unpleasant) scent, it's a great tallow based soap. Really lathers well and slick.
Highly recommend trying these blades.
Combined with the Parker 99R barberpole butterfly razor, i think i may have just found the shaving partnership for life.

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.

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.

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..

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 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!

I've not had any issues with the quality of the blades - I do not need to shave all that often though, once or twice a week maximum. Having said that though, a single blade can last me for months; I do however ensure that I look after them after each use - buffing the blade in an upward motion along a taught towel. I have been using this method for a couple of years, prior to this, most blades would dull very quickly, but since I've been buffing, blade life has been extended to probably four or five times as long! If you are experiencing
Even though Amazon's subscribe and save option is by far the most cost-effective way to purchase them, it still feels like an excessive price to pay.

I've docked a star for two reasons. One is that getting a Wilkinson blade (and possibly other makes) centred is tricky: as you tighten the handle there's a distinct "snap" as the blade clicks into the proper position. Derby blades seem to seat more easily, perhaps because they're more flexible. My second niggle is simply that it's a three-piece design, so putting in a new blade is a bit of

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.

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
