Does anyone have any experience with these German blades?

I have. I had a pack of them and, ultimately, decided not to get any more. They were too hit or miss for me. Either very good or rough, and all from the same pack.

Ive tried a few, I really enjoyed them. They're a bit tough to find though, and expensive.

They are expensive. I believe they are distributed by Hans Baier rather than G+F, but I could be wrong....

They are a decent blade, but like all things German comfort is low on the list.

Edit: I need to "revisit" this blade as it has been a year. Let me get back here after another usage.

Well, I dug one out of storage and used it today. It served to remind me of why I gave most away in the past. For me it is a rough blade. No smoothness hardly at all. YMMV.

I like these blades with no issues. Very consistent for me anyway.

ehh they are okay honestly for the money they want for them there are much better options out there. i bought some and rarely use them. they are not super sharp and not the smoothest either. i much prefer the voskhods to them

For me, three pass shaves were not terribly smooth and with no irritation in an Edwin Jagger DE89. Four pass shaves were quite smooth with very minor irritation. Five pass shaves with some touch ups were baby bottom smooth with minor irritation at most. My overall impression at the time was that they were good blades, although I only tried them in one razor.
