My wife and I both have used Sharks for a long time. With no change in razors, we are both finding them to be a bit too aggressive. Changing to Voskhods to get a smoother shave. Anyone else have this experience with long time use of a blade?

No on the long time use but, the Voskhods have been my go to blade for several months. They are nice in my vintage Gillette razors.

The Shark Super Chrome did not work out for me, but the Voskhod are one of my preferred blades. Not the sharpest, but sharp enough and smooth.

Voshkods work great for me. If you find you like them long term, you might consider trying Rapira Platinum Lux. I like them even more than Voshkods.

I found the Vokshods sharper and smoother than any type of Shark. Maybe your feeling of aggressiveness with the Sharks is because they aren't as sharp for you.

I gave up on the Sharks SC a while ago, although in a mild razor they are still quite good; e.g., a Weber. I also like the Voskhods and other Russian blades. You may want to look at eBay for ridiculous low prices on Voskhods and other Russians - like ~$10 per 100, which includes shipping from Russia.

Anyhow, enjoy them.

Voskhods work much better for me than sharks did.

I placed my order on eBay through Italian barber, since I trust them. Got them in last week. Hopefully I see some nice results.

Voskhods just are some of the best blades. Before using them I read a lot reviews, and usually Sharks are liked well but Voskhods are loved. Another blade I´d like to try is Lord Platinum class, which is made by the same maker as Shark... well... Have funSmile

Welcome to TSN Phillip. I get good results from both Voskhod and Lord Platinum Class. If you want to try the Lord Platinum Class, send me a pm with your address and I'll mail you a pack.
