Blades this fine deserve a razor to match. For a high-performance model with a vintage look, check out Baxter of California's Safety Razor.

Derby

Birchbox Breakdown

Safety razor blades might be economical, but that doesn’t mean they compromise on quality. These blades by Derby Extra serve as exceptional ammo for any standard safety razor. Each double-edged specimen is forged from Swedish steel, and at a value of 20 cents per blade, their price will impress just as much as their edge.

How it Works

This pack contains a total of 20 replacement blades, perforated to fit any standard safety razor. Each blade is forged from stainless steel, with chromium, tungsten, and ceramic deposits to keep the cutting edge sharp.

How to Use

To swap out a spent blade, unscrew the top of your safety razor, and remove the old cartridge by carefully gripping its sides. Replace it with a fresh blade (taking care to avoid the sharp edges), and screw the razor shut. Perform this ritual every two weeks, or every week if you shave on a daily basis.

CHROMIUM- CERAMIC, TUNGSTEN AND PLATINUM

Save Your Face, Don't Buy

There are a lot of options when it comes to buying DE blades and these blades sit down toward the bottom.

Sure, they might work for your face, but I would say it is pretty unlikely. I have a face that is pretty forgiving with blades and there are probably 15 or so brands that I take no issue with. Derby is not one of these brands. Additionally, they generally carry low reviews. Nonetheless, I recommend all newbies get a sample pack and figure out what blades work the best for them, and a lot of these packs will include Derby's. Compare against other blades and I believe you'll be able to tell why these blades aren't for most.

I think they're great!

I tried at least 10 different blade packs in samplers and I LIKE the Derby! Not expensive, I get a great close shave, and I think they're one of the best blades I've used! Maybe they're not for some, but don't count them out!!

Economical and great quality
Purchased

My husband loves these blades they fit. And flex perfect in his baxter safety razor. The safety razor was a really good investment and these blades are so affordable that you can have the luxury with a fresh blade each shave:)

Better Options

I think everyone who has switched (back) over to DE shaving has tried these blades, since we all end up ordering sample packs . Sadly, these don't perform well. If you want to stay with inexpensive blades, try Gillette Blue or even Wilkinson Sword. Or, buy a sample variety somewhere and see what works best for you.

Only good for emergency

I've used these blades before joining Birchbox and they aren't good. You are asking for a unpleasant shave. Other better blades are available at approximately the same price point.

I took a chance, departed from my usual Merkur blades, and I am not disappointed but I am not impressed. They are less expensive, but they also don't last as long.

Just ok

These razors are good but not great. They work well but the price the not match compare to other competitors like shark or feather. I suggest to just by a 100 razor pack from amazon.
