Best blade if used properly.
These are by best the best blades I have ever used. Upon receiving my first order two years ago, I went to shave and I couldn't even tell it was cutting, it was like shaving with silk. As the blade gets used it gets a little less comfortable cut. So just use a lubricant or I use Cetaphil lotion. If you use a lubricant you can get up to 8 weeks of shaving every day off one blade. I highly recommend this shaver for every man of any age.
I got them for Christmas.
I got them for Christmas! I use one blade all month until today (01/25/2018), and bet I can still use the same blade! I love the blades.
I've Been Using for Years.
I have a fairly tough beard and have had no problem using a single blade cartridge for a month. I use a gel shaving cream, and that always gives a very good shave. I have also never had a problem with a handle breaking. They have been a real bargain since I had been used to paying a fortune for Gillette razors, that usually only lasted a couple of weeks.
Tough Blade works for me. Beards are as unique as users. It is amazing how many men have never been taught HOW to shave, or how to treat a razor. My only complaint is having to CALL to get refills.
