Impression

I've heard good things, bad things and terrible things about Derby blades, but one thing I have not heard is my own opinion on the matter.

Strapping a Derby Extra into my Muhle R41 was potentially suicidal, but ... what could go wrong?

Concentrating and with the lightest touch, I got a great single pass shave - it was all I needed. The blade was not the smoothest, but it was sharp and kept under strict personal control it did a great job!

Lovely feeling to be shaved again ...
