i always pick these up when i go to India on vacation. they cost abt 70cents for 5 blades. using my Gillette slim adjustable, i find them to perform like the Feathers, but they don't last as long as Feathers.

another way to soften the beard and get ur face ready to take a shower b4 u shave, and apply some conditioner and let it soak in during ur shower. i do this and it helps soften the stubble a lot.
