Best Double Edge Razor Blades [2020]

Best Double Edge Razor Blades in 2020

A double edge razor blade can make or break a safety razor. The best safety razor like a Feather AS-D2 will not shave well if you use a cheap/poor razor blade. Not all DE razor blades are equal. Some are very sharp and some are not. Some last longer too.

I’m a beginner safety razor shaver and I’m having fun trying and reviewing shaving products. This is just my opinion on double edge razor blades from my experience. Hopefully this information will help you select a good product.

I noticed that any one razor blade may cut better in certain safety razors. For example: I tried a Derby Extra razor blade in my Merkur 34C safety razor and it did not cut well. It pulled hair. It felt dull. I then tried another Derby extra razor blade in my Edwin Jagger DE89 and it was smooth sailing….very sharp indeed. So try different blades in your safety razor and see which one cuts the smoothest.

Here are best double edge razor blades in order of sharpness.
