"For the price" is the key phrase here. I bought these blades after using 100 of the Stainless version(which were just ok) and find them to be a good, well made blade with the only exception being longevity. I cannot for the life of me get more than two shaves out of these blades. They're sharp enough and smooth enough, but they just do not last! That being said at this price who cares if they only last one shave each-that's still only 8 cents! Still, I pay only 12 cents apiece for Personna blue label and get a week(that's 6 shaves) per blade out of them so I guess they are a better deal. Anyway, these are alright "for the price".
