How many do you get?

Let us know what razor you're using too. Thanks!

The instructions with the One Blade CORE suggest switching the blade after 1-3 uses. Is this accurate? I get 4 with my DE blade, and those aren't nearly as thick as the FHS-10 blades.

OneBlade Core V1 & V2. 1st shave very good, 2nd shave good but losing it, 3rd shave is a real stretch for me. Feels like I'm shaving with a butter knife. I don't even try anymore. All in it makes sense to me as I have never found a DE blade that survives past the 3rd shave. Since this is a SE 2=4 on a DE.

I have used a blade for 5 shaves in my Oneblade Core V1. But going forward, I will not use a FHS blade more than 4 times. I think 3 is kind of optimal.

I wonder if stropping and /or using a razorpit would increase the life of the FHS-10.

I can typically get 6-8 good shaves from the FHS-10. I typically only get 3 shaves from any DE blade I have tried. It's funny how different the blades can be for each person.

4 for me in Genesis V2.  I can stretch it to 5 shaves but it's not as comfortable.

Two seems to work best for me, and I've tested stretching to 3 or 4 in both iterations of the CORE, the v1, and the Genesis.

I don't have a heavy beard so I can get 7 or 8 shaves from one. That's in the original OneBlade.

In the original OB I couldn't get more than 2 shaves. Only the first one was excellent. I have a heavy/ tough beard.

If I could get 7-8 shaves from one blade, I would still have it and never sell it. Really.

I only use them in my Valet razors and can usually get 3 to 4 good shaves out of them.

3 is where I enjoy and can manage pretty well. 4th will be an over kill for me and not worth the hassle.

Blades are inexpensive but a BBS shave is priceless.
