These double edge blades work out at just over 2p each and for me they're just as good as any other blades I've tried (including Feathers, Gillette Nacht's etc.).

I used one this morning in my vintage Gillette Slim adjustable razor set to 9 and got a lovely close and smooth shave with no nicks or irritation whatsoever.

I reckon 800 will do me for life, but hoping to be proved wrong!

Why are people voting cold please? The cheapest i can find 100 of these blades for is around £7 and they work really well, so 800 for £17 is a steal IMHO.
Hi Friend,

You will have to ignore the cold votes - there are a lot of ignorant and proud of it people on this website.

What do you recommend as a good razor to accompany these blades?
Tiptop price for 800 @UKBFG

Superb review here:


I use these blades too. Very sharp little blighters and last ages.
old Gillette adjustable from eBay are superbly made razors. I have the superspeed.

Thanks. That's a tough question as there's lots of options and factors. Here's an article with some advice:-
sharpologist.com/201…tml

I personally started out with this pretty cheap one from Amazon to try it out and it worked really well for me:-
amazon.co.uk/Kan…UI0

Though i've now upgraded to a Rockwell 6S and vintage Gillette adjustable (I still use the Kanzy one above as my travel razor so it's not wasted and no big deal if it gets lost or broken).

Now I'd either start really cheaply as a trial if I wasn't sure and pair this decent £6 razor with the £1.89 pack of blades above, before upgrading/investing more:-
amazon.co.uk/Jag…004

Or invest a bit more up front and go for this highly regarded adjustable razor instead (It's the cheaper chrome version of the Stainless Steel 6S):-

Hope that helps. "Traditional" shaving is great and a lot cheaper and greener in the long run (as long as you don't get "Razor Acquisition Disorder"!).

Don't be discouraged... I don't think the "rating" always correlates with and reflects how good the deal is. I know that many "cold" it because they simply don't like the product, or haven't read / and or grasped how it's a good deal, and on occasions some even "cold" it because they don't like the person who posted. Ironically, I posted one yesterday which was as good or better a deal than a couple of others I posted, and they both went "hot". I'm motivated to post when I have found what is "objectively" a great deal (e.g. my voted down cold was for something 8 times the quantity for the same price as the regular amount), and I'm happy to share that. And if just one or two others find it useful, then "job done".:)

Even though I don't use the item you have posted, I have given it heat, because it's obvious this is a great deal!

Thanks for this. I've gone for the £6 razor just to start with.
What shaving foam/cream do you recommend?
Again, it depends. There's whole forums dedicated to discussing shaving soaps/creams/gels/oils etc.

Still, as it looks like you're going for the cheap/trial setup, I'd have to recommend the best bargain soap ever.. Palmolive shaving stick, available from Tesco and Asda for paltry 50p:-
mysupermarket.co.uk/Sho…sco

It’s incredibly cheap, but actually surprisingly good AND long-lasting. It gives me a good a shave as anything else I’ve tried, smells pleasant enough and leaves my skin feeling lovely and clean and soft as a bonus. A lot of “traditional” wet shavers use fancy expensive soaps in tubs, lathering bowls and brushes etc, but I keep it simple and "face lather" with shaving sticks, which is just rubbing the soap stick on your wet face, rubbing it in a bit and then shaving (in the shower in my case).

Alternatively, you can just use gels, creams or oils, which are all quick and easy to use.

Or just use whatever canned gel foam you had before. It's called "Canned goo" in shaving forums and frowned upon generally, but while it's probably not as good for your skin or environment as proper shaving soaps, I find it gives a perfectly acceptable shave with a cartridge or DE razor and am still in the process of using my old supplies up (Nivea though which is actually pretty decent stuff)..

Other shaving sticks to look out for cheap are Arko, Boots and La Toja, which all cost around £1-2 and last for months.


What's next? Aftershave?
Boyf usually uses Astra Superior Platinum or Yellow O'Clocks but likes these, he purchased a bundle a few months ago - unfortunately he's now defected to a Panasonic ES-RF31 electric razor after years of avoiding them and falling in love with it, for the moment, anyway!
Another point I forgot, is that the blades are the only cheap ones which are comfortable again the grain for me.
