I am delighted with the Voskhods , but I should point out , in order to get a close shave with any blade , you MUST try use of a PRESHAVE as a base from the get go!
As a new wet shaver , I have tried many DE blades already. I have a baby soft face & " barbed wire " bead. A bad combination but I found the Voskhods to be heavenly! Regret I can only give 5 stars as they are more than satisfactory, They are sharp and smooth and for me are " off the charts ". The only way to know for sure is to try many different DE blades.Your search is ahead of you.
A good blade but felt a little dull for me when using my Rockwell 6C.
Voskhod provides a smooth shave without irritation. Russian blades (the other being Ladas) have been my favorites. As with any other blade I use, I replace after two shaves. For me it's better to replace too early than too late!
In one sentence, I recommend the Voskhod blades. If you want to know more read on.
The Voskhod (made in Russia) blades are sharp yet at the same time smooth. Prior to using these blades I have used Feather (made in Japan) blades, Red Personna (made in Israel), and Treet (made in Pakistan) blades.
The Voskhods are in my opinion very similar to the Red Personna blades, both are sharp and smooth. The Feathers are extremely sharp and if technique is not up to par, then you will get weepers and irritation. The Treets are the worst of the blades I have tried, gave me irritation and pulled on the beard hairs before cutting, they are neither sharp nor smooth.
Have you ever cut butter with a hot knife?? Well, go to shave with these ones and you will know how does it feel.
What a smooth shave.
