Derby Extra Double Edge Razor Blades 100 Count
Derby double edge razor blades are known to be less aggressive than many other blades on the market.
Let’s see a couple of their features:
- Stainless steel blades.
- Fit all makes of safety razors.
The real selling point of these blades is that they are not aggressive, which actually means that they are not as sharp as other blades out on the market. Not everyone likes to shave with extra sharp blades and particularly those who don´t have a thicker beard.
They are made from high-quality steel and coated with polymer for maximum shaving pleasure. Each blade is then passed through rigorous quality control.
Although they are not so sharp, you should still get about 5/6 shaves from each blade. I find the price to be very good and a pack can last you a long time.

- Sharp enough for a comfortable shave.
- Give a smooth shave.
- Great price.
