I have a sampler pack with about 15 different brands and the 7 o'clocks are one of them. I have tried all of the blades at least once and after I used them I'd catagorized the blades packs as either like or dislike. I had the 7 o'clocks in the dislike section, but I couldn't remember why I didn't like them, and I'd heard so many people saying they really liked these blades I decided to give them another try last night. THESE BLADES ARE ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! Of all the sampler packs I have, these are the worst. The best way I know to describe how this blade feels is it just feels like a dull blade, like it isn't sharp at all. A nice blade (like the Personna Reds) glides over my face and you can hear the snapping of each wisker as it cuts, but there's no tugging or hacking. It's just one, smooth motion. With the 7 o'clock I could feel the blade tugging at my beard, and I found I had to keep going over and over each area multiple times to get a close shave. I realize different people are going to have different results and not everyone likes the same things, but I can't for the life of me see how anyone has had good shaving experiences using these blades.
