Wilkinson Sword

Item Description

Price: I found these blades to be really expensive, especially when there are other blades half the price.

Quality: Quality is good. What i would expect from any blade at least.

Sharpness: This is where i find these blades a bit dissapointing. I find that they lack the sharpness and they always give me a bit more irritation than other blades.

Longetivity: Consistent performer. Last just as long as other blades that i have tried.

Smoothness of shave: They dont seem to be a match for me. Can be a bit rough on my face.

Packaging: Very good quality packaging.

Overall i found these blades to be ok. Especially if you have run out and cant find your favourite ones. But the price i think is just a bit to dear at 8 dollars australian dollars.

Pros: Sharp, smooth, good blades
Cons: There are better blades
I want a close shave with no irritation, anything milder than an IP doesn't really give a close enough shave and anything sharper than an Astra is too likely to cause burn.

A Wilkinson has the sharpness of an IP and the aggressiveness of a Derby, but a Derby is sharper and an IP is milder.

Wilkinsons are good blades with a nice combination of mildness and closeness so I don't have a problem with them they're nice and I'm happy to use one. But they're just sub optimal compare to other blades I can use milder blades which are just as sharp or sharper blades which are just as mild.

I think they'll always be readily available in the UK so I'm glad they're a blade that I find perfectly acceptable but whilst there are better available I won't be using them.

Pros: The UK made blades are great.
Cons: The German made ones are terrible
I got a pack of UK made WS with a Slim that I bought on Ebay. I loved those blades, so when I ran out I started looking around for some replacements. That is when I found out that the UK factory had been shut down and you could only buy the German made blades. I figured I would try them out and see if they were as good. They are not. I got 2 awful shaves out of the blade before I threw it away and grabbed a Derby. The blade seemed very dull and I needed more passes than normal to remove the hair. After many extra passes, I was left with a shave that I would rate as tolerable. Seriously it was about as good as an electric razor shave. The only positive I have about this blade is that the aftershave didn't burn at all when I was done. Granted this was probably because the blade wasn't sharp enough to do anything to my skin, but still I'll say that's a positive.

Pros: Package?
Cons: Not sharp
Not for a strong beard, just feels like piece of metal dragging across your face.
