    I recently received these blades and the infamous #6 brush from Best Shave.

    The blades were $1.26, they are made Turkey.

    I used the blade in my Gillette Rocket.
    I like trying new blades.
    For $1.26, overall the blade is good and comparable to the Big Ben blade
    Sharpness:I would give it an 8 not the sharpest the blade I have used, sharp enough to give a decent shave.
    Drag and Pull: I did not notice any drag or pull.
    Irritation: The blade did not give me any discomfort
    The blade overall was worth trying, it was not the sharpest blade I have used but the shave was comfortable it did give me a DFS.
    If you like giving new blades a try for a $1.26 I do not think you you will be disappointed

    Well, I hope they can jazz up that package just a little. It seems so dull! :happy097:

    I have not investigated these. Are they made by Lord or some other company?

    The only info I found was made in Turkey. I have no idea on the meaning of "Gold Safety Razor Blade" either.

    So, I'm guessing at least one of the Gabor sisters use these things?

    Your right does look like pizza. Wonder if the blades are gluey. I like gluey blades about as much as I like Joey Zasa.. and I hate Joey Zasa...

    No they were not gluey, I agree I do not care for the gluey blades either.

    No this company is independent of the LORD blade corporation.

    I bought a 100 pack just for the awesome retro design. As for the sharpness: One edge gave a smooth and not too aggresive shave, similar to a red personna, while the other edge was so obtuse that it barely cut any stubble. Well, at least one side is useful and the package looks great on my shelf.:happy005:
