    Still looking into that, the others I tried were no good to me so dosen't matter!

    Have not tried a Shark yet, but I've heard very good things about them!

    They are on my short list!

    Of course all of these blade critiques was with the Merkur 38C on MY face! YMMV!
    I agree with you on the Feather, the Shark is good with this razor, similar to an Astra, a little more sharper than a Derby.

    Hey that Aristocrat looks familiar. Smooth shavers they are. No I meant new Russian production Gillette Silver Blues like these Gillette Silver Blue Double Edge Blades .
