    Dorco

    Beyond Impressed

    I have to admit being skeptical of these razors before ordering them. I had read some reviews, and had discovered the connection to Dollar Shave Club (which was how I ended up going direct to Dorco). I have been a lifetime Gillette user, having come up through the generations of their shaving systems (sensor, sensor excel, Mach 3, Mach 3 Turbo, Fusion, Fusion pro-glide), and having always been pleased with their performance over the years, and I can admit to being happy, except when it came to the cost of blades. So, after having been a Pro-Glide User for the past few years I just had to try Dorco. I figured it couldn't hurt, the price was so attractive that if I didn't like them it wouldn't pain me too much to throw them away, and I could just return to the land of over-priced Gillette. SO, I ordered a combo pack of the Pace 6+ which got me the handle and 10 blades all for about the same price as 4 blades of the competition. Now here are my findings:

    • Almost as good a shave as the Fusion Pro Glide, about 90% as good a shave, but Dorco ARE sharper and last longer. So, for 1/3 the price I will gladly accept that.
    • The reviews on the trimmer are somewhat valid - it is on a slightly different angle than that of the competition, so requires a little more care and finesse. IT IS SHARP!
    • Blade life is at least DOUBLE that of the competition. I shave whole head and face 6 days a week, and I have never been able to get the kind of blade life out of any of the major brands like I get from my Dorco blades.
    • The handle is subject to a little build up which can make the pivot a little stiff over the course of time. This didn't occur on mine until about the 9 month mark, and I live in a very lime/calcium/hard water spot. Partly my fault for not taking greater care.

    I have re-ordered. I finally worked my way through the first 10 and I bought another handle. I cannot stress how pleased I have been with the experience. I am happy to have found them, and I will honestly continue to use and recommend to everyone. These are the best razors, and not just for the money.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
