So I am a fan of all things German, including my Muhle R41 and Rocca. Thought I'd throw a couple of German blades in them to try for a change. I usually use Polsilver or Gillette. So I tried a Merkur and Timor.

Merkur was OK. But I really liked the Timor blades in my Muhles. Sharp and bit thicker/stiffer than most blades and very comfortable. Less glue than the others too. Not much on TSN about Timor's but don't be afraid to give them a try if you haven't. I was very pleasantly surprised.

I've had them in rotation for awhile now, pretty good. Have you tried Cromma and Bolzano? I like Croma better than Bolzano.

I love Timor blades...first shave needs to be done with a light hand and I don’t chase the BBS...second shave is the absolute best, smooth as ice, and I go after the serious irritations free BBS every time!

I haven’t tried a third use, but think I will this week!

Born in Deutschland I go that way if I can but my money isn't with any of the blades from the mother land.

Timor is the best modern, available blade I’ve used. I cork the blade lightly before first use and can get two weeks worth of shaves from one blade.

Never corked anything other than Feather. I'll give it a try...... Cheers

Theyre good blades, I just find them to be overpriced.  I can get the same shave from German Wilkies for less money.
