Sorry Nick - got lost for a few days.
Yep, the "sample packs" are a good idea. I got some from this bunch, although mine had Derbys and Feathers included.

Would be good to get some feedback on the blades , the only ones I have tried there , as previously discussed are the Astras (made in the former Soviet Republic I believe ) . .
I have no plans to give up the safety razor but a really good blade would be very satisfying. . 8)

Got some Derby blades delivered today after a bit of a palaver . .

Blades are now a restricted item and cannot be posted through the letter box, left with a neighbour , handed to someone under 18yrs old or left in a designated secure area . .FFS

I must say, I hope being a moderator on a section of the forum containing a thread titled "Grooming" doesn't get me placed on the Sex Offenders Register ;)

It is a bit of a sad indictment of our times that a perfectly innocent word has a new definition that is a bit more sinister. ?

I have now been using the Derby blades for a couple of months now and they are by far the best blades I have used . So far I have used Astra blades (for about a year ) and more recently the Feathers . Whilst Feathers were superior to the Astra's , if I didn't use Lucky Tiger shaving cream with them , I got nicks .  . So in a nutshell, I can't recommend the Derby blades enough . .
