Very satisfied with these blades, i have sensitive skin and they work very good for me. I change them max after 3 times, and it is a good alternative to Feather for the ones with sensitive skin. Recommend also for beginners in the Safety Razor world.
Best Shave Ever.
Posted by Don on 12th Aug 2016
Have tried a numerous makes of blades. These blades gave me the best shave and most comfortable shave ever. Today i was in a rush so i had to do a awful sin a use a fisher price razor (disposable razor). After my shave I used a alum block to repair my skin after what damage i done using a disposable razor. My hold face was piercing. Just goes to show what damage disposable razors do to the skin and over years i cant image what damage that has done to peoples face. I don't think i can ever go back using disposable/cartridge razor ever again cause using disposable/cartridge razor really just tare the skin off you.

I find these blades excellent. I was cutting my face with timor, Gillette 7 o'clock, persona. Astra was ok. But Derby works wonders for me.
A good blade for light to medium beards
Posted by Darren on 21st Sep 2013
There is a love hate thing going for Derby blades on many of the shaving forums. I think they are like a milder version of the 7 o'clock greens, quite forgiving, but from my personal experience, not sharp enough to tackle coarse beards, so you'll end up doing more passes to give yourself a closer shave at the cost of irritation which sort of defeats the purpose. Unfortunately for me a 4 pass shave didn't give me a particularly close shave, if I tried to reduce my beard any more I would be risking razor burn or worse. I'd recommend this blade for men with lighter, softer beards, if it works well for you you've found yourself a reliable go to blade.
Great for R41 new OC head
Posted by Andy on 21st Sep 2013
Try these in the new Muhle OC, match made in heaven. Far more forgiving than most blades yet still able to take advantage of the geometry of the R41 to cut through the beard. found them average in milder heads like the EJ89.
All Terrain Blade

This is the most complete blade i've tried. Sharp enough, very durable and with a nice price. Perfect for newbies!
