    The mos widely available blades in the UK, at least in my area. I used them when I used a DE shaver (quite a few years ago now!).

    In my opinion they are adequate. There may be better ones out there, but I only have experience of these and the Merkur ones that came with my DE shaver at the time (those were rubbish by the way).

    I use them all the time, they're cheap & last a long time. Not quite as sharp as a Feather, but that just means less nicks!

    i have never enjoyed them.
    My main blade is the Super Iridium
    The Perma-Sharp Supers are also very nice.

    Yesterday I shaved with a new Wilkinson Sword blade, they have black writing on the paper. My first impression is that they are very mild and forgiving blade. It's not a bad blade for me at all.

    There is a store near me selling them for .99. I guess that is not a big deal when you can grab them for under $2.00. I do not mind them. I would say they have a mild edge, which I like. However, I have been converted to using a SE when not using a straight.
    From their stillness came their non-action...Doing-nothing was accompanied by the feeling of satisfaction, anxieties and troubles find no place

(Also saw them at a smaller store for 10.95 for the same 10 pack). At a 17 cents each, no problem--at $1.59 or $1.10 each (plus tax)---well that is just ridiculous. No wonder I buy on line.

    Exactly why I never bother with them either. Too bad really but that is what the net is for.

    I use the Wilkinson Sword Classic, they work great to me. I also use Gillettes in the green package. The only way to find if they work for you, is to try them. I'm not going to use the YMMV cliché....darn, I just used it.
