I received a few of these blades via a PIF, and after trying out my first blade this week I'm ready to give a review. I've been using it in my Merkur 34c Heavy Duty safety razor.

The blade is nice and sharp with no pulling or tugging. It wasn't quite as smooth as some of the others I've used, at least on first use, but oddly enough smoothness has actually increased with successive uses. This morning I did my fifth shave with it in tandem with Gillette Barber Shop Fresh foam (I was in a hurry because I was running late for work although I did make it in time). It's still going strong. I think I'll see if I can get another couple of shaves out of it before replacing the blade.

What are your thoughts? What's been your experience?

I get good results from Ladas.  I can't discern much of a difference from any of the blades I've tried from that same factory - Ladas, Voskhod, Rapira Swedish Supersteel, and Rapira Platinum Lux.  I get good results from any of them.  However, I only use blades once, so I can't comment on how many shaves I can get out of any of them.
