I bought these on a whim. I saw them and I love silver, so there you have it. Important shaving choices.  Biggrin I have to say, I have been blown away by these blades. I have gotten amazing shaves with various razors. The claim is they are not as sharp as a Feather, but up there with sharp blades. I am no expert on sharpness, but I have gotten impressive shaves easily equal to Feather. Maybe better? I'll have to try a Feather again and see. I have used the blades with the PAA DOC Ascension on the mildest setting and the shave was amazing, the RazoRock Game Changer .68P was great also, and my SS Blackbird which was nothing short of phenomenal, and my ATT with he CR1 .58mm Copper Plate. They are made by the Lord company out of Egypt. At just about $2 for 5 blades, they are well worth the price and then some. Wondering if anyone else uses or has used these before.

Mike, it’s always a treat to enjoy a new personal blade discovery. Lord blades have Wilkinson heritage; some guys rave about them. I tried a few tucks of Lord Platinum Class blades a few years back. Perhaps they’re worth another sampling Wink

Good for you, Mike!  I personally haven't tried the Silver Star blades... yet.   Biggrin

It's nice to have blades I can call my own. Most blades I have I saw many people talking about then so I tried them. And with good reason, most folks here have tried so many of them. I don't think I realized they were Lord blades until recently. I bought Wilkinsons many, many years ago because it was the only thing that the store had and I needed blades. I just kind of assumed they were good because I was sort of familiar with the Wilkinson name, mainly likely because they made cutlery. I'm pretty sure I used to have them but even still have Wilkinson knives. It's always worth going back and trying something again after some time, you never know it might be different this time. The one blade I have sworn off of are the Astra SP. I only use them twice, but I got nicked each time. Maybe sometime in the future I'll try those again .

Thanks! I took a shot, and I was definitely very pleasantly surprised. I do think they're worth trying, you never know. I'm going to take a shaver to now using them in some of my more mild razors and see how they perform that way. It's either gonna be my Merkur 38C, or one of my Edwin Jagger DE 89's. I'm not sure which one is mild I read contradicting reports online, so I may just use both.

I tried some on a friends recommendation and found them to be really nice shavers. I just have so many of my favorite blades put back that I never ordered more. They were very affordable the last I looked and would be a good choice for someone looking to start stocking up a supply. They will easily compete with many of the more well known blades.

Luckily, I don't have too many blades so I will definitely be ordering more. These have quickly jumped into my favorites along with Nacets, Rapira Platinum Lux, and Feather. They are well priced and I agree they easily compete with other well known blades.

I'm not familiar with these blades.  However, I do get good results from the Lord Platinum blades.  In 2011 I bought 300 Lord Platinum, and have 150 left today.  I'm actively reducing the number of blades I have to the two or three which give me the best results, and the Lord Platinum will not make the cut.

I’ll trade you 200 IPs for the 150 Lord Plats.

Thats is an incredible amount of blades. Even with your one and done method, I think you're set for a pretty long time to come. Yeah, everybody has different experiences with different products as we know. I'm definitely loving these so far.

I just went with my fourth shave on the blade using my Merkur 38C. So far every razor I have used I've gotten excellent results. I'm probably going to use it again in a few more razors. I got great results first with my Phoenix Accoutrements DOC Copper Ascension, now I want to try the same blade in the aluminum one and see what kind of results I get due to the obvious differences in weight.

you just don't know if a blade will work for you until you shave with it. I really like the Indian Wilkinson Sword. probably one of the cheapest blades on the market (about $7.00/110 blades) but I find them to be smooth and sharp and I have yet to have a bad shave with one in any of my razors. I am a one and done guy so I can't speak on longevity.
