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.
The sampler is a great idea to help you decide which blade is best for you.
Perfect product for people trying to find the right blade!
I struggle with finding a blade that’s sharp and will cut without tugging. I also have sensitive skin. I’m only on the first blade but notice a difference in quality. Can’t wait to try the rest.
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.
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!
