I got a Gillette 365 blade in a sampler from tryablade. I don't know how many shaves I have on it, but I think it's more than 7. The shaves have been very smooth. I'm using in my Maggard V3A. No problems with this head at all. I was looking for a Macet on the pack and just decided I'll try thos blade. After shaving with this blade I thought to myself I don't need a Nacet. What an excellent blade! This blade goes above and beyond. Of course YMMV. It works very well for me and I'll order more. I still like the Nacet blade.
