Viking and Asco Red Box added. Thanks to those who notified me that they were there. I try to watch for his reviews, but these two got by me. I apologize for the delay.

Thanks again, Squire! Many are waiting for the new reviews.

Melyus, I tried these and found them not too good. I think they would be better after hand stropping. I noticed in TRNC that Derby are pushing cartridge razors and traditional blades are becoming harder to find.

Dear Tony,
As you know every face is different shapes and characteristics so your face do not like perma- sharp in my opinion. Why I said like this: because Perma-sharp is more quality and expensive other than Turkish DE razor .In Turkey everbody knows that. in the other hand derby is most popular and best known Turkish DE razor blade in the world.maybe no one knows Perma-Sharp brand in the world like Derby. Also İ have been in TRNC 5 year and I agree with you.
Finally the Gillette Company buy the Perma-Sharp Co and carried the production to Russia so Perma-Sharp Astra and gilette Producing in There anymore.
İf you want to try new Perma-Sharp and Derby i can send you samples for free charge please give me your postal address With PM.

Melyus, yes, maybe I didn't give them a proper try out or maybe I got some old stock. I'd definitely be interested in trying some again. I tell you what, if there is a blade you'd like to try that you can't obtain let me know and we'll trade. I appreciate the kind offer. I'll PM you my address.

Squire, have you ever thought about doing a before and after picture? For example, take your favorite blade, take close up picture, shave seven times, and then retake the picture. I don't know if that is worth trying or if it has been done and I am a little behind the times. Anyway, just a thought.

I've done that Nate and at 450 power the difference is not noticeable.
