I was given a pack of these blades when making a purchase a while back, and finally decided to try them out this morning.

The shave was honestly pretty rough, and I got a weeper out of it for my trouble.

Should I expect these blades to perform better after use, or are they "not optimal"?

They've gotten surprisingly bad reviews here. I think the Grecian BICs are very solid blades, as evidenced by my having over 200 of them. I'm also a fan of Derbys, Astras, Sharks & Gillette Platinums (St. Petersburg).

I ordered some a while back. I thought they were average. I didn't add them to my rotation.

If I remember right, I had some in a sampler and thought they were pretty good, no issues. I still have a 5 pack but won't order as as I have the Gillettes, Polsilvers and Astras that I like better.

I liked them when I was new to wet shaving. This was in comparison to my limited sample pack(Dorco ST-300's, Dorco ST-301's, Red Pack Personna's, Israeli Personna's, 7 A.M.'s, SHARP'S, Derby's, and the Bic's). I preffered these to the others I had. Later, I became less impressed with them especially considering the price being twice as much as blades that I got better shaves with(Super-Max Platinums), and considerably less(Astra SP's). To each their own, as always.

Got a pack a couple of years ago in a sampler. Used one blade. End of story. Might be just me.

Thanks, gents. I think I'll try another brand tomorrow.

Next person who buys something from me gets some BIC blades! Cool

People's mileage varies wildly on these, but in my book the BiC blades are firmly off the list.

I did not like them at all during the blind blade test, but YMMV.

Did not like them at all. I started out with 5 from a sampler, and still have 3 left.
