    Default Van Der Hagen DE blades

    Has anyone tried these: Amazon.com : Van Der Hagen Safety Razor : Razor Blades : Beauty
    We just got the razors and blades at my work. They are like 4bucks for 5, but I can get them for 15% off with my discount. I can get Feathers for the same price from Maggards. The box of blades says made in Germany, so I wonder if the blades are actually something decent, just branded for VDH? Interested to see what y'all think.

    I was not a fan of them personally. In fact I think I still have a few around somewhere. For me Feathers, Persona Labs & Persona Med Preps have covered all my de blade needs. There are others I have liked but I could be just fine with those 3 blades for good if de was still my razor of choice.

    No experience with those particular blades but "Ice Tempered" refers to a method of tempering/hardening stainless steel.

    If they are like their other products you can keep them.
