Okay, I generally try to be positive in my posts, however, I thought it would be interesting to ask members to name their all time worst blade.  A blade with no redeeming qualities.  I think it will be interesting because there are bound to be people who love, or at least like another member's worst blade.  I want to satisfy my curiosity as to whether there are any blades out there that members find unanimously bad.  My apologies in advance to the blade manufacturers - (random thought, are there any artisan blade makers out there?).

Here's the rules - you have to have actually experienced the blade so your opinion is based on experience and not a blades reputation that you've heard about.

Mine is the modern German made:

Wilkinson Sword

Zorrik. Absolutely dreadful.

I've had zero luck with Voskhod and Feather.

I love the Feather blade, but only in the Feather razor, otherwise its dangerous. I also like the Volkshod but find its really only good for a couple of shaves at best.

I've not tried the Zorick.

Dorco and Derby. Just not my cup of tea.

I haven't tried the Dorco but I don't mind the Derby. Probably not my first pick however.

I agree about the Derby blades, Mark, but I have to say that Dorcos could be running neck and neck with Zorriks for me. Both are awful.

Dorco, Derby. The single worst shave I have had in recent history was with Voskhod.

Dorco and voskhod have not done well for me. Voskhod did alright second shave bust first and third were rough. Dorcos, well just always tug.

This was using a Maggard razor
