Experienced traditional wet shavers know that Russian DE blades are some of the very best in the world. Russian blades are world renowned for their high quality and sharpness. Gillette has been known the world over for their high quality shaving accessories. These Yellow 7 O'clock blades are more mild than other Gillette razors. If you are looking to tone down an aggressive handle or a smooth shave for finer hair. Give these blades a try, you won't be disappointed!
Razor Emporium Sharpness / Aggressive Rating:
= very sharp = very mild
I know these reviews are highly subjective but for me these work. These blades are a good combo of sharp and smooth. I compare them to the 7o'clock super stainless-green and the Rapira super stainless. I would def buy again.
As to quality, they are Gillette, so was excellent. But as to shave, these were the first DE blades I used, As I wasn't sure what would work for me so I decided to go less aggressive. They are as advertised, not aggressive at all, they worked, but needed pressure which gave me razor burn. I will not be using these again, and will try the black 7 o'clock next.
This blade is much sharper then the green 7 o'clock and pretty smooth overall. It did a fine three pass shave. The only negative for me is that it is not quite sharp enough for me personally. But this blade is worth trying. This blade left some irritation on my skin. But i do have a tough beard and sensitive skin so your mileage may vary.
