Dollar General DE Blades made in Vietnam

Post by Tucker » Sat Oct 08, 2016 1:57 pm

I acquired some of these which were 5 for a dollar. They come in a blade dispenser that looks a lot like American Personnas. However, these are rumored to be made by Dorco according to other shaving forums. I was not expecting much, but I popped one in my Above The Tie R1, and got a damn fine shave. The ATT R1 is a blade finicky razor, and thus far I've only liked Polsilver SI's in it after trying numerous other brands. These blades would be a nice option for travel if one intends to purchase DE Blades on the other end. They really hit a price point compared to some other away from home options, like the ones at Walgreen's.

I picked up some of these locally cuz when I saw them I just couldn't resist checking them out. They work fine for me too. Nice to have alternatives isn't it?

Being a Dorco blade they are merely average IMO. I've used a couple, but won't do so again. You know, you can pack all the DE blades you want in a checked luggage bag, just not a carry on. If staying longer just mail yourself a pckg. with your stuff ahead of time. People do this all the time legally with firearms when not wanting to go through the TSA hassle.
