    Default Wilkinson Sword DE blades?

    Hi, any comments on the Wilkinson Sword double edge blades? I have 3 packages of this blades on the way and I would like to hear about your experience with them, thanks!

    Not as sharp as the Feathers or some others, but I bought some from wal-mart in a pinch, and they are pretty smooth shaving, I actually like them personally and for less than $2.50/pk you can't beat that for 10 blades man!
    Mastering implies there is nothing more for you to learn of something... I prefer proficient enough to not totally screw it up.

    I'm told there are 2 varieties. One made in Germany and the other made somewhere else. I've used what I was told were the German ones though they weren't marked so I really don't know. I found them to be OK but I much prefer the Feathers or the Iridiums for that matter.

    In fact, I received them today. I still have one shave to go in my current Astra (green) blade, so probably I will try them until next week. I'll give you feedback!

    If on the paper there is black writing then they are quite good. I use them as part of my blade rotation. Not as sharp as some blades out there but forgiving and smooth.

    I pay $1.76 for a pack of ten of the Wilkinson blades. They shave well and at 17 cents, I use them once and throw it away.

    The ones that I have used were about the $1.76 mark, but I think it was a pack of 5 though and I really like using them. The feather blades I have used were too sharp and would shred my face with the slightest pressure if I wasn't paying absolute attention. The Wilkinson ones seemed to be more forgiving and gave a great shave. I don't use my DE as much as I used to, but I will still use it on occasion instead of just letting it sit there.
