    I got sent a tuck of these as part of a care package or PIF. I'm using the last one this weekend. I have to say, I'm not too impressed with them. They get the job done the first day or two, but the shaves aren't as smooth nor do they go more than a couple of days without the irritation factor going way up. I find they're done after the third use. Fourth is a stretch and fifth is really pushing it.

    I don't end up with a bloody face like I do with the Dorco Prime Platinum, Feather, and Shark blades. Weepers are usually only one when shaving on the third day, but when using my alum block following my shave I get more of a sting. First day or two, not so much.

    Who else has used these? What's your experience been?

    I have the ones made in Thailand and they work really well. If they were easier to get in the states I would use them all of the time.
