These are the best blades for anyone who has sensitive skin. It protects you from cuts and nicks and gives you a great shave. The blade lasts at least 10. Any other blade simply cuts up my skin and I bleed profusely. Not so with Schick Protector blades. The 10 little wires that cover the blades provide just the right protection while allowing you to get a great shave. Unfortunately, they do not make these blades any longer but you can still get them from 1 or 2 places on the Web.
