These are just what I need for a close, comfortable shave.
I alternate between a shavette and safety razor. These blades are incredibly sharp. In fact, they are too sharp to use in my shavette. However, in my 60 year old Gillette Fatboy adjustable safety razor, I can dial in the closest, most comfortable shave ever. One pass with the grain at 6 and another against the grain at 4 and my face is silky smooth. As smooth or smoother than with my shavette. I went back to Wilkinsons for my shavette and experience many fewer nicks while still achieving a close shave.
I use these blades for my legs and bikini area and they are great! I get less irritation than with other blades I've used. They give a nice close shave and don't knick the skin much. I would definitely recommend these razor blades.
Well, I'm a total newcomer to this method of shaving. I'm enjoying it. These are MUCH sharper than the blades that came with my starter kit. I can't see my shave getting any closer than it is, but it is definitely easier to knick yourself too.
These are sharp, high-quality blades that work well for me in a medium-aggressive razor (Merkur 33C). I withhold the fifth star only because a blade will occasionally shave rather rough and I'll discard it. This is fewer than one in twenty, which is not a big deal.
