    Sample razor blade set

    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.

    Blades Really Do Vary

    Posted by Joseph Pompeo on 9th May 2019

    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.

    Finding the right blade

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Mar 2019

    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.

    Great setup for the complete novice.

    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.
