Kai. I find that very stiff blades don't work for me.

Derby Blades.

I used to think that they weren't very good. But...

I think they are better after the 1st shave.

Maybe Derby Blades aren't all that bad.

Well I went from the dorco to the voskhod variety. And now I'm scared for my 3rd. shave with the mad Russian.

Kai Stainless Steel Double Edge. Far too sharp from me.

My face felt like I'd rubbed it with sandpaper.  But before that experience, I had used the Astra SP in a Gillette Super-Speed, and had great shaves. This is the first blade in my experience that worked in one razor and not well in another. I had read comments from others about that but had never experienced it.

Hi Eric, that has been my experience as well - what may be great in one razor is awful in another.  This means that every time I get a different razor I have to more or less go through the same trial process which is why its important to keep notes.  

I agree, but I have found that Merkur blades suck in any razor that I have tried. On the other hand Gillette Silver Blues and Polsilvers work in any razor I have tried. It's a shame Polsilvers are gone now. I have 200 of them, but I almost want to sell them because I just want to find and use the a blade that works for me and is available for sale. I am ready to try Gillette Platinums now to see if they are just as good. If so I may just go insane and buy a couple thousand to last me a lifetime and be done with blade exploration.

I'm another Derby anti-fan. One shave was enough for me.
