When I first started buying and using these blades, I liked them. However, over the last few months I have noticed the consistency of quality of these blades leaves MUCH to be desired. Some blades are excellent, and I can get several good shaves out of them. Others - the majority it seems - are NOT good, and the first shave with a new blade is more pulling, less cutting of my facial hair. I finally just threw away the last 10 blades out of frustration. I will not buy these again.
