Going through my lose blades I've came across a muhle blade. Just wondering if these blades are any good or other experiences or what they may compare to. They seem kind of hard to find and at $10 for 10 curiosity might make me try it out, as long as it's not derby sharp.

There are not that many shaving DE razor blade manufacturers, so it's OEM by Medyna, Apollo or Feintechnik.

10$ for 10 pieces is pretty steep. Wait for a special deal, besides I doubt these are superior blades

I have 1 blade, no way would I buy these blades unless they outperformed a feather, I was just looking for some feedback on them before I tried the blade I have for myself.

Ah! Sorry I do not know which  blade really is in there. if I had it I d be reluctant to try because this is just a rebranded product, so for me it is practically a noname blade. There are some German made blades lout there that are very good:
as I  do it correctly I can shave with other well known blades too. Sorry again for not being able to help. The problem with these would be- if they are good- where to get the real deal Huh

While we can be pretty sure that Muhle-Pinsel's not making their own DE blades, I do hear this old chestnut bandied about frequently regarding Merkur, too.

And with my own two eyes, I saw Merkur cranking out DE blades with a Swedish machine that had to be at least forty years old when I toured their factory...they let me take pictures wherever I wanted and I made a few clips of straight razor and scissor grindings, but didn't think to make a pic or vid of that machine, and I should have  (it reminded me of the contraption in Dr. Seuss' "The Sneetches" story).

I rather doubt Merkur brought that in just for fooling our little account's benefit, so I wager heavily that the conventional wisdom that Merkur's blades were/are made elsewhere is simply the uninformed confirming to one another what they never really knew in the first place, and that makes at least four parties in DE churning them out that I know of...we've spoken at a tradeshow with a fifth German outfit intending to source this machine, too.

Interesting. Any source on that?

Either way, the blades aren't rebranded, just outsourced. I shot Mühle an email asking and they said they're made according to their own specifications, but they wouldn't say who manufactures them, unsurprisingly.

Also, where do you find them for $10? They're about $4-5 for a pack of 10 at my go-to store, assuming we're thinking of the same ones.

I got one blade with my new Muhle R41. I quite liked it.

For near on ten years I have used Feathers in a Merkur 39C Slant - the long handled "Sledgehammer". I have never found a blade to better it, but the Muhle blade in my R41 open comb head on a custom handle 100mm long weighing 100g by Windrose produced very acceptable results.

I must explore more, but my wiry white whiskers are very tough! I bought another ten blades to continue the experiment.

The white plastic box is very similar to those in which the Feathers come.

I know where my Chateau Neuf wine comes from and can justify the price over some $5 grocery store wine. I do not understand the desire to get feedback from a $1 blade of indeterminate paternity or manners possibly cranked out on a tool formerly used to make ME 109 trim tab connectors.

How would you compare this to GSB or Polsilver?
