    Nice! I will be picking up a few of those soon. I've been meaning to get a crappy shave lately.
    I could probably load Tabac on a Q-tip and still get a decent lather

    Very nice, It has been getting harder and harder to fill my crappy blade collection. It makes my search so much easier when they just come right out and say it.

  7. Default Something for the "Pay It Forward" Thread?

    If anyone wants some bad karma, they should buy a carton of these and post this up on the PIF thread!

    Makes you want to get some. Perhaps a gift to someone you dislike?

    Thanks I feel like a bigger retard, somehow I didn't see that, I did see 10-pack in plastic vs. 5-pack in cardboard, I thought they were exactly the same. Wow now I know not to use them.

    Probably added after your thread was posted.

    By all means try them, but I think it is more to do with the fact that some people have awful shaves with them.

    I got a passable shave out of my Slim with one. But the cardboard ones give a magnificent shave with the Slim (just finished a shave with a fresh blade... heaven!)

    Ah ok, yeah I was sure it was poorly worded and sounded like a plastic 10-pack that I assumed was just larger than the cardboard 5-pack, but really it was a 2 5-packs lol. Oh well, the prices on BestShave.net are very reasonable, and I didn't order 100 or anything luckily.

    Buy some for those people you don't like, or just get some for your mother-in-laws shave den.

    Nice that they're honest. Wanna bet that the buyer tried them anyway? I'd be tempted.
