    I’ve used a DE razor (and straight razor) for over 40 years, trying countless different brands of blades over the years. I took a year off to grow a beard, then after I’d heard enough Santa jokes, I started looking for new blades and found these Wilkinson Swords. I knocked down the long stuff with clippers, leaving for me what felt like a week’s length of stubble. I did the necessary shave preparation and popped in the Wilkinson blade. I got a great shave with ZERO nicks/cuts. I did a second lather/shave, achieving the desired soft-as-a-baby’s-bottom feel, again without a single nick. Yeah these blades were a few bucks more than other DE’s, but you get what you pay for and they’re worth it. I rarely leave reviews, but this is a great product and I’ll be a customer for life.

    This was always my second choice for razor blades just after Feather. Feather really surprised me with the quality of their Oneblade single edge razor and how bad it is so I have been getting these instead.

    My former go to blades were Feathers. Merkur and Astra also served me well in the past. But, after wearing a beard for 6 months (used a Dovo Bismarck for trimming and cleanup) when I went back to shaving daily I found the Feathers and especially the Astras chewed up my face. They were suddenly horrible! So, with the Murker supply running low and they are not Czech made (with pissed me off) it was time to find a new blade.

    I tried these as well as Derby Extra and Derby Premium. Both of those are very good smooth blades. The Derby Premium is exceptionally good.

    The Wilkinson have a slight edge on the Deby Premium. I tried it with 2 different soaps (Mitchell’s Wool Fat and Tabac) and 1 Cream (Trumper rose scent). Also used 3 different razors, once with each of the soaps/cream. The razors were a Jagger de89, 1956 Gillette Redtip and a 1961 Gillette Fatboy (set at 4). Used Lilac Vegital from Clubman as after shave each time, shaved 2 x with each blade before changing razors and moving to a new blade.

    This blade is perfect for me. Can’t say it will be for everyone but I love it. It was flawless in each razor. No nicks, razor burn and a very smith glide with each lubricant. The shave was very close (3 passes; with, across and against with some neck clean up on a 4th). My girlfriend even noticed that my face was smoother.

    Now I’ve been shaving since the early 80’s mostly with a DE or straight razor (did pause on the DE in the 90’s when the blades were harder to find). My beard is thick and about 50% gray at this point so I don’t push blades past 2 shaves very often. For those two shaves I absolutely love this blade. Actually bought 200 of them.

    Now I actually use a Muhle r89 and a Merkur 34c often times too ( I have a bit a a razor habit. Considering rehab), but they shave so similar to the de89 that I didn’t see the need.

    So bottom line, if your looking for a new blade this is a very good one to consider.

    I’ve been shaving with a safety razor since I was 16, I’m 23 now. For years, I’ve tried to find the right mix of blades and cream. I can confidently say I’ve found the only blade I’ll ever use (unless there is a drastic quality change). I started with astra’s, back when they were still really good, after my first 250 ran out, I bought another 100 and threw out the whole pack after the first 5 blades were extremely uncomfortable and tore up my face. About 2 years ago, I switched to feathers. Blistering sharp, but still a little uncomfortable, with a tendency to cut. Tried my first sword this morning, not only was it ‘Hanzo sword ;)’ sharp, but it glided effortlessly across my face, leaving me with a shave a clean as a feather, but with out the knicks or tugs. I was genuinely surprised. 10/10 would absolutely recommend.

    Unfortunately the Germans forced the EU to change Country of Origin of the actual product on packaging to just providing the Name and Address of the Company selling the product not actual place of manufacture, probably to hide sourcing from Eastern Europe and China while charging a Made in Germany price. The Wilkinson Sword Made in Germany razor blades I bought in Milan are the best and I assume this package is equivalent quality. In fact Trigota in Milan sold a superb butterfly Wilkinson Sword fixed safety razor with 5 (I think) razor blades for Euros 13.8 about $US15 the price the same package is offered on Amazon. If you are not looking for an adjustable safety razor the Wilkinson Sword deal is highly recommended.

    I went back to a single edge razor. Great shave and so much cheaper then the other razors.

    I do not understand how disposable razors ever get created or adopted. I switched from Dollar Shave Club to Harry’s and then tried a straight razor. The learning curve for the straight razor was a challenge. I still use it on occasion but for day to day I have been using a Wilkinson Sword for the last 6 months. I really like it. The blades start out sharp and hold a good edge for several shaves. I usually swap out my blades every week or two. I have gone a bit longer but after about two weeks I start to notice a bit of pulling. But for $0.20/blade I don’t see a reason to suffer. Get rid of the fancy junk blades and go back to a simpler and better shave.

    I’ve been buying these Wilkinson’s blades (the one’s made in Germany, which seem to be higher quality than the similar-appearing Wilkinson blades from India) and have found that they give the best experience and durability of any blade I’ve tested.

    I have tried several other of the more well-known brands. Some (e.g. Feather) are a bit sharper than Wilkinson’s, but then you get nicked more. I nick myself very rarely with these. And they last well– an average of 2 weeks of daily shaving, sometimes 3 or even 4.

    I do find that it pays to pay attention to the process of shaving to get a good close result all over (vs thinking about the day to come, etc). If you do that, the closeness and comfort of the shave are equal to any of the 2, 3, or 4 bladed units that cost far more.

    One final point: the best blade HOLDER I’ve used so far is the Lord Premium–quite inexpensive type made in Egypt. I’ve tried the genuine Wilkinson blade holder. It looks great, but doesn’t hold the blade in such a manner that you get as good a shave as with the Lord Premium. Also, the 5 blades that come with the Wilkinson blade holder do not seem as high quality as the refill blades advertised as being made in Germany. I tossed them out, along with the Wilkinson blade holder. But I continue happily with the Wilkinson refill blades made in Germany.

    This fit perfectly my Wilkinson shaver. Usually can buy 10 razor blades at around 8CAD plus taxes. These were 100 for 30, so much cheaper (30cents each vs 80cents at local stores). They took a while to arrive (which was clearly stated), and everything went as expected. They come in 20 packages of 5 each, so you could buy these between a few people and divide accordingly.

    The fact is for all the TV ads I saw for these in the 1970s especially, they might as well have been done by the McMaan and Tate Agency from “Bewitched”! It’s like every guy gets more or less programed to get these razor blades, even if it’s fifty years later! It’s not just advertising jargon either. Obviously there is a clear quality basis for the advertising, making them the standard you judge other razor blades by. In the last few months I’ve used Merker and VD Hagen blades also, and they all have comparable durability and use quality. I expect eight good shaves out of a blade with one full pass, plus some more shaving on my special areas, and these deliver as you would expect. You should find that this is a superb bet razor blade brand which gives you a standard to go by as well.

    Wilkinson Classic sharpness at the level of astra green and feather. Great blades. Not for beginners.
