I recently received 100 Astra SP Blades and have not found them to be of their usual quality. I feel as if they are not as sharp as they used to be and even tug a little bit. I used to not feel anything at all! My daily driver razor is the Merkur Progress Long Handle, so that has not changed. I am wondering if anyone has noticed something similar or if my perception of these has changed. I don't doubt that my perception of these might have changed as I have noticed that my likes and dislikes have changed over the past 6 years. Anyway, I loaded my Progress with a Feather this morning to see of if technique was to blame, and I have to say I had an awesome shave! Just wondering if Astra is doing something different, or if there are some quality tolerances, or if it is just my perception of the blade!

There is definitely some variation, but I would be surprised if an entire package of 100 blades were all equally substandard. New soap, perhaps?

It might be the weather. My skin is a little dry with the cooler, drier weather and I have noticed that my hair is not cutting as easily as it did in the summer.
