Razor Emporium Sharpness / Aggressive Rating:
= very sharp = very mild
For me, this blade has been a great balance of sharp and smooth. I have a coarse beard but sensitive skin. Feather blades worked pretty well but it was tough for me to not get little nicks. These Rapira blades give me a decent shave with less nicks and less potential for irritation.
