I just pulled a BIC Chrome out of HONEYBADGER. It was a really good blade. I'm maintaining a beard and mustache of sorts so when I shave, I only shave my lower neck and touch up the sideburns a bit. Good and smooth for about 8 partial shaves. Thumbs up!

I'm not sure if Bic has issues with quality control but I've had two packs (the yellow packaging) and both were quite diffrent. One pack shaved beautifuly in every razor I used it with. The other pack was horrible and I had to toss the blade mid-shave, tried two other blades out of that pack and it sucked too so I just tossed them all.

I've tried them - the only complaint I had with them was blade life. I was getting 2 shaves tops out of them instead of the 3 or 4 with other blades.

I have heard several people complain about the quality control involved with Bic blades. From what I understand, when they're good they're very good and when they're bad they're very bad.

Same experience as vuk, I had one package of them and all were no good, couldn't even finish a complete shave with a blade :-(

Huh, my batch came from your second pack. Terrible, awful things these are. Tough on the skin, and sadly not on the hair.
