Voshkod Teflon Coated Double Edge Razor Blade Review

Voshkod Teflon Coated Double Edge Razor Blade Review

Having enjoyed the Rapira Platinum Lux blade, and having read that some who tried the Rapira preferred the Voshkod Teflon Coated double edge razor blade, I thought I’d give it a try next.

Double Edge Razor Blade Review – Voshkod Teflon Coated

0)   Initial impressions –

Well, I’ve got to say, this had all the features of the Rapira Platinum Lux that I didn’t like, only amplified…it was quite rough in comparison, and left me with several weepers.

1)   User Interface – what does the shave feel like during the shave

Rough shave…definitely a sharp blade, but not comfortable.

2)   Quality of Service – how good of a shave did I get

This is one place the Voshkod didn’t disappoint.  As with the Rapira Platinum Lux, I got a good shave with this blade (if you ignore the bleeding).

3)   Hack factor – did it seem to make me nick myself, or was it smooth sailing?

More weepers.  More afterburn.  More Alum-sting.  Not my favorite blade.

4)   Useful service life – how many shaves did I get out of the blade?

I stopped at 3 shaves, as I wasn’t really enjoying the Voshkod Teflon Coated double edge razor blade.

Wanting to get back to the Rapira, I decided to try another Rapira model.
