I love a blade that's the perfect marriage between sharp and smooth as these are just that. These are def going into my rotation. I also am digging the Rapira super stainless.
I generally alternate between Astra Blue, Astra Green and Feather blades. I decided to give these blades a try after watching a few online reviews. After around 12 shaves with these blades, I'd say they are comparable to the Astra Greens. Very smooth, sharp and comfortable.
This blade is smooth on the skin but not sharp enough for me, I have a tough beard and sensitive skin. This blade is worth trying but not me personal favorite. I did get some iteration on the skin because I needed several passes to get a close smooth shave.
I have only had the opportunity to use one of these blades so far, but wow. Normally I use Feathers or Personna Lab Blues, depending on how many days growth I have, but this blade will replace both. I had 3 days growth on my first use, and 1-1.5 on the next two uses. This blade gave me close comfortable shaves everytime. Nearly as sharp as a Feather, but smoother than a Personna Lab Blue. If the consistency is there I won't hesitate to buy a 100 pack.
These blades give me consistently good shaves in all of my razors. I prefer it in my Super-Speed.
