  1. Great setup for the complete novice. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2018

    Full disclosure... I have only used the Astra Blue and Astra Green blades so far but the customer service alone warrants five stars. I have made a few more purchases from Razor Emporium and without fail, they have delivered on all fronts. I bought a ‘66 Gillette razor from my birth year and am using these blades with that, a badger brush and Geo F Trumpers sandlewood cream and skin food. Everything has been top shelf and I can wholeheartedly recommend all these products for anyone, but especially the first timers like myself. I have gotten a couple of nicks with the learning curve but all told I can’t believe I waited this long to start shaving this way. I’ll never go back to junky disposables or high dollar ripoff cartridges again.

  2. Excellent selection for a beginner 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2018

    I got this pack right after I received my new Viking Blades shaving kit a couple of months ago. I started out using the blades that came with the shaving kit which were labeled beginner blades. After a used one of those I tried the level one blades from the razor emporium kit. That was so much better than the ones that came with the razor that I threw the rest of the those away.
    Then I worked my way up through the various levels of blades in the pack. I’ve worked all the way up to level five and haven’t had a single cut or nick. Each level felt better than the last, except the last two, level III and level five, felt about the same. Now I’ll begin to shave switching between these two levels until I decide which I like best.
    This razor pack is an excellent way to get started DE shaving. I’ll buy the rest of my blades from razor emporium because I’m so happy with this first pack. Great product!

  3. Excellent selection for a beginner 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2018

    I bought this beginner pack right after I got my new shaving kit (Viking Blade) because I didn’t know what I like. I shaved the first few times with the beginning blades that came with the razor. Then I tried the level 1 blades in this pack and couldn’t believe how much better they were than the ones that came with the kit! I threw the rest of the Viking blades away.
    Over the last 2 months, I’ve tried one each of every grade in the kit. Each one seemed better than the last except for the last 2 (levels 3.5 & 5), which seemed about the same to me. Haven’t gotten a single nick or cut in my first 2 months of DE shaving. I’ll now start switching between the 3.5s and the 5s that are left to decide which I want to buy more of.
    This pack is a great set for someone like me.

  4. Good sample 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Feb 2018

    Good representation of a wide array of blades. I would have added a Perma Sharp or other sharper blade in the mix, but I'm overall pleased. The little guide that comes in the package is helpful.
    Product as described, fast shipping.

  5. Very Pleased 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Oct 2017

    After having problems with DE blades purchased at local stores, I decided to order the beginner DE blade sample pack. I couldn’t be more pleased! The first blade provided a close and comfortable shave, such as every blade since. This follows many butchering shaves with lesser blades. I was beginning to believe there was something wrong with my prep and/or technique. Turns out, the problem was with the blades.

    I highly recommend trying this sample pack to get a feel for quality blades, a range of sharpnesses, and how such quality/sharpness can improve your shave.

    Ladies and gents...
    Blades really do make ALL the difference!

  6. Good place to start. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Oct 2017

    This was the first time I started wet shaving and had no idea what blades I should use. This was a great way to try a verity of blades and get an idea of what to try next. I would recommend this sample pack to everyone that is starting to use a de razor.

  7. Great value and variety 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th May 2017

    A great value at $6, I liked being able to try a wide variety and not be left wondering if there was a better choice out there for me. Turns out, for me the biggest difference among these is not the blades, but the packaging. The blades all feel about the same. But I found that I don't like the Astra blades because the paper wrapping has some kind of wax or glue on it, and you have to find the edge of the paper and pick at it with a fingernail. Lord and Dorco, on the other hand, just fold the paper around the blade making it very easy to unwrap.

  8. new to wet shaving again 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Apr 2017

    Just started to wet shave again and found all this information about shaving and blades and how different blades work differently with different razors then I found razor emporium and their sample packs and ordered some so far I've used 4 blades with my ball tech razor and found the feather blade worked best so far, looking forward to tying all the blades in the pack. I really like the choices in the packs and I will order from razor emporium again keep up the good work

  9. Great Variety 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2017

    I have only had these for a week, but am very pleased with the selection. I find this product helpful as I am new to wet shaving. The aggressiveness chart on the bag has been helpful as I am dialing in what type of blade works best for me. The price and ease of checkout is also a plus.

  10. Great pack for beginners 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Dec 2016

    I found the sharpness scale to be most helpful in choosing the right blade for me.
