People here get all excited when the DorKo stuff is $1.50 a cartridge. Be a man and go double bladed and wet for 14c a blade, one tenth of that.
Amen, brother! A DE razor is the best shaving investment you can make, especially now that there are plenty of cheaper options available. I haven't tried these blades, but you can get two of the best lines of blades cheaper, just by looking on Amazon -- probably even cheaper if you shop around:

Astra Platinum, less than $0.10/blade through S&S:

Personna Blue ("lab quality", but essentially the same as hospital-grade blades), less than $0.12/blade w/coupon -- and made in the USA!

If that's true, these are a fantastic deal. I might have to check them out!


These are standard DE blades, so they should fit any DE razor handle (e.g. Merkur, Edwin Jagger, Parker). The ProGlide is a cartridge razor, so no, these won't fit that.

HEADS UP BOYS.... I started wetshaving with DE and shavettes a few months ago... changed my life. I love getting up a little early to shave everyday. stuff sounds weird... I know. Had a little learning curve due to my womanly sensitive skin/ never putting any products on my face my whole life. Found the right tools/products and haven't looked back. Its like a little meditation session each morning. Anyways I say HEADS UP because these things are coming from a petsurplus seller on ebay and could be Chinese fakes. Buuuuuuuuut... because they come from new york which is a big port city... I suspect this guy is buying up all his stuff to resell at great deals of the boats from shipping containers which have a little leakage. That's cool for pet products and all and more credit to him for finding the ultimate YMMV flip. The concern I would have stems from the badger and blade forum in a post which I will post here. Just something to take into consideration, if its not the case....killer deal and great blades... Without further ado. " Sea water may be the culprit in this case. You say the boxes seem to absorb water more. That is an indication that the cardboard has been wet before. And likely wet with salt water which would cause a chemical leech from the cardboard and the vapor soaked through the wrappers. Salt water and cardboard make a light acid which explains the poor performance of the blades.

i suspect your local store got a deal on some blades that had been in a leaky shipping container that came into the nearest port city.

It makes more sense than them being counterfeit blades. Blades are not an easy item to conterfeit and the same machinery used to conterfeit blades would make more money simply producing no brand blades. If the machinery works well enough to conterfeit blades why not just produce legitimate "local" branded blades and sell them at 2/3 the cost of big name blades?

You might even get a big name company to buy out your operation in a year or two if make good product."

Totally apples to oranges. These are safety razors. Anyways, you can get Dorco brand of these for MUCH less. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dorco-Dou...1908909992

I would say this deal is luke warm.

Ooh, good catch.

Yeah, I'd stay away, especially folks new to DE/wet shaving. Best to stick with something with predictable quality for the first experience, so you aren't turned off of one of the cheapest, best shaves you can get. Pick up some of those Astra blades I liked above instead -- they should work well in just about any handle, are good quality, and are nice and sharp but still forgiving for new shavers.

agree. these are only $18 on Amazon for guaranteed authentic blades. I wouldn't risk potential fakes for a few bucks

Can you elaborate how this compares to Gillette Fusion proglide shave gel and proglide 5-blade cartridge which gives super close shave? Can you shave upwards with DE? Basically, if you rub your hands up or down over your face after shaving you shouldn't feel any roughness.

DE shaves can give you the BBS shave you yearn for pennies. That's what suckered me into a life of trying different soaps, brushes and razors. Yes the blades are cheap and if you have enough self control to not want to try this or that razor / brush / soaps, it is cheaper... but don't kid yourself.

its a taste of the old american way of life. The way we did things before we had all this mass marketed commercialism and tech in our face. A time where innovation was wide open and there was just simple products and one or two manufacturers making them. No clone companies, stuff was made to last. You can buy a razor from 1920 today in perfect operational condition for about what you pay for your gillette That says something to me about how many quality razors were made. They turned out a lot but these were people who were happy with a 9-5 job and didnt feel entitled to anything but a steady pay check and a hard days work. Anyways off my high horse on the greatest generation on the decline of simplistic uneducated yet wholesome way of life. I can shave in the way you describe now... I couldn't when I started there is much more guidance in the shaveden and badgerandblade forums then I would ever want to write here. Go there if you get one and read up a little bit...watch a couple videos do as said and you will be good. My problem was skin related I never really cut myself... it was just I never really washed my face before and this scrubs it down and then you can apply products like aftershave afterwards and I reacted poorly to all the exfoliation and then the blade and then the chemicals.. I am unique in my experience. I recommend you try it out and just learn a little bit prior and it should be an easier transition as it is for most. The general idea is little to none pressure/ let the weight of the razor do the work/ do a pass with the grain of your beard and a pass across. If you have time a third against. With legit versions of these blades and a little practice you won't need more than 2 passes for the smoothest face you have had since you were 8.
