Lol. I think you'd have to shave with oil to keep from clogging that monstrosity.

But on a more serious note, their 3 blade isn't terrible. I prefer the Feather if I'm stuck with a cart, but not terrible just the same.

Wow! An additional two blades to another cart! I see that 20 blades just might be a feasible option, after all! Biggrin

I used a 5 blade Dorco for my head - was decent but, not perfect - shave was about a 5 out 10 - nothing luxurious but, not horrible either! Never my face

I use the 3 blade Dorco on my head and get excellent results.  I also use it for travel when I have carry on luggage.  On my face, I find the Dorco 3 comparable to the Gillette Mach 3 and Schick Hydra 3, at a fraction of the cost.  I don't see any need for more than 3 blades.

I use the Pace4, get good shaves (by my standard) and they last a week before starting to get uncomfortable.  I saw a couple of post about a Dorco 5 blade cart?  They only show  2, 3, 4, 6, and 7 blade carts on their site, are the 5 blade older versions?

Just got the 6 plus and had an awesome shave with it last night. At the price, doesn't hurt to try especially with the amount of sales they have (right now it is free shipping at $10).

I've been shaving with the Pace 7 for close to two months now and it is hands-down the best razor that I have ever used.  It feels as if I were shaving with a butter knife but when I rub my skin afterwards it's as slick as Teflon.  The fact that the cartridges cost (during one of Dorco's frequent sales promotions) about 1/3 the price of Gillette Fusion Pro-Glides (which are, at the very least, no better and possibly slightly inferior) makes me especially fond of it.

Who knows? It might be just fine, but if I were going to buy a cartridge razor I'd buy a Feather MR3 Neo Razor -- it's a real sweet shave but you gotta buy the carts online.

I am going to give it a try.  I've been auditioning the Dorco 3 and 6 blade models and can't really tell much difference between them and the Mach 3 and Fusion.

I got sick of Gillette prices, so I bought all the Dorco Pace mens razors and did a review of them. I put a review of all the Dorco Mens Razors, plus Gillette and Merkur 34C double edged up on one of my websites - it was just a convenient place to put the review really. In summary, the Dorco 7 blade is pretty rubbish, the Pace 6 Plus is really quite good, and the others are various levels of bad to complete fail. Gillette easily bests them all, and I mean to try Schick when I get around to it - my wife says I have enough razors so I have to wait for her to forget before I buy another.

I'll do another round with each of the razors over mid 2016, so the review will get updated occasionally.

Yeah, sorry, typo there. I mean the Pace 6 Plus is pretty good.

I agree that the Pace 6 Plus is a good multiblade at a good price.  However, I notice in your blog that you gave up DE shaving based on a Merkur.  Perhaps you might try a mild razor with a sharp blade.  A cheap plastic Feather Popular combined with a Feather blade or perhaps the cheaper and less sharp Astra SP would be a good combo to learn DE shaving. I bet you could get the hang of it with that combo in a week.

I tried all the blades below with the Merkur, though I didn't notice any significant difference between them. Curious why a different handle would make much difference? The main problem seemed to be instead of the cartridge pivoting to ensure good contact I had to do it manually, which I'm not very good at. I could get an ok shave with it, but with more nicks, and requiring more passes. I probably could get better at it, but given I shave around 5:45am most days my patience is limited. I do use it when I'm trying to get rid of a bunch of hair, it's pretty good at that. I do like the value...

Dorco is the same blade they use in The Dollar Shave Club. All three blades and handles that they use are repackaged Dorco's. You can get everything but the 2-blade cheaper directly from Dorco.

As cartridges go, for the price, they aren't bad. Just don't expect a BBS shave.
