I already have like 5yr supply of Derby blades.

I can't understand why people waste money on other types of razors, these cost almost nothing, and also work better once you get the hang of it.

Been using these for years. Nothing to really compare to, but they work great

Does Gillette own Astra? Or is that feather...

I think I bought 100 blades like 3 years ago and I still have like 20 left.

Anyone who hasn’t taken up double edge shaving, take a look into it. You’ll get better shaves, and save tons of money!

Restocked last year and still have like 80% left. Paid $19.99 so this is a very good price but not sure if i need a lifetime supply.

Yes, as far as I know they are still owned by Gilltette and made in Saint Petersburg Russia. They are a good blade with reliable consistency much like all the blades made in that factory. This price is good, but even standard prices on blades from that factory aren't much more.

The Astra may not initially be as sharp as a Feather or Kai blade, but I find they hold their edge longer, however others have different experiences and opinions on the topic.

Either way, nice find on the deal OP, especially for Amazon prime members who'd get free shipping.

I'm still using my sample pack, still can't decide what to stock up on :P
Do all the blades work the same for you? Or do you find certain ones less irritating? I had a sample pack when I first started a few years ago and have been using feather. I did go back to merkur and astra a few times through the years but found they irritated my face and dragged. The feathers are stupid sharp but less irritating for me. Everyone's skin is different so once you find the right one, go with that. But if any of the blades work, you're lucky!
