A good way to find out what works.
Bought a safety razor and was looking for some good blades to get started. I saw a video from Razor Emporium in my search with their picks for blades for different levels of experience with a chart showing how aggressive each blade is. It was good to have some thought out picks for beginners. Price was good too compared to other similar variety packs. I couldn't wait for this to arrive. It was packaged well and had the aggressiveness chart included. I'm working my way through starting with the least aggressive. I love these guys. I have learned so much from their videos.
I recieved these recently and they are awesome. It comes with a handy guide for keeping track of sharpness of the different blades. I really like some of the mid-range ones right now. This was a great way to sample and to start out my safety razor shaving experience.
Great shave. I've switched to a safety razor several years ago and always looked for nicer blades to shave with. Now that I have started using a straight razor I still use my safety razor for hard to get areas while I get use to my straight razor.
Thank you for getting me in the right direction.
Very good value I enjoyed the Astra Greens and feather blades the most.
Excellent assortment. As a new wet shaver I love the change to experiment with the different blades. So far i have tried the Astra and dorco blades. The Astra for my shaving seems the ticket so far. Look forward to trying all blades eventually.
This set lets you try to determine what types of blades works best for you.
I got these to use with my new DE89. My only other experience was with Wilkinson Sword blades. I started in order and simply hated the Lord blades. I ended up not using all of them. They pulled and were rough compared to the Swords. The Astra Blue was very nice. A decent shave with a small amount of tug. I did manage to cut myself with them a few times and they were the worst nicks I have ever had while shaving. Overall, not bad. The Dorcos are awful. Perhaps I had a bad batch but they were not even, some areas sharp, some dull. They tugged. They were very rough - so rough, I only used three before I could not take any more and finished up a shave with the Lords that I really do not like. They made those seem good. Then, Astra Green. Wow! I really love them. Smooth, with no pull, no nick, no cuts. They are best on my neck of any blade I have ever used. No razor burn yet close. I am only on my fourth shave with them but really enjoy them and will likely order a quantity of them. I have not tried the Feathers and they may wait for another day. I want to be sure my technique is solid before going tackling them. In short, the sampler is the way to go. If DE shaving was like some of these blades, I would get the Mach 3 back out. The Blues did not knock me out. But the Greens made me appreciate what everyone says about DE shaving.
