Just as good if not better than expensive name brands

Found these razors last 2-3 shaves longer than high price name brands. I shave my head and face so affordability was a key factor along with quality. Very impressed and satisfied. Glad I switched.

These blades are good enough to order again!
Not as sharp as I am used to with Gillette

Prefer the 3 Razor
Posted by James A on 12/22/2013
Coming from a Mach 3 I honestly prefer the 3 blade option as compared to Dorco's 4 blade system. Better angle, cleaner rinse. It's unfortunate that I purchased a 4 pack of the 4 blades instead of the 3. Oh well, they are still good razors. I'd recommend a pack of each before you commit to a bulk purchase.

BOTTOM LINE, GOT MORE SHAVES FOR A MUCH LOWER PRICE WITH BETTER QUALITY
Lifetime Mach III user
Posted by Dave on 11/25/2013
I've been shaving every day with Gillette Mach III for 20+ years, and decided to try these to save money. It was immediately noticeable that the shave with these was closer than with the Mach III with no loss of comfort. I now have less stubble the next morning when I shave again -- which makes it easier to get a close, comfortable shave. My first blade lasted as long as my Mach III blades -- about two weeks.

You get a really close shave with these blades there is no doubt they beat any other product that you can buy at a great price.

Qualifier: I have a heavy beard and rough skin; basically I am your typical old hard nose geezer.
I used to use a Gillette 2 blade system. I got a good close shave with only 2 or 3 bloody nicks a week. The cost of the refills has crept to $1.85 each in the 10 Packs. Since each blade would last only through 7 shaves (1 week), these can only be described as ‘Bloody Expensive”. The sad thing is, I used to think they were actually a good shaving system.
Then I found Dorco. I read the reviews and tried the disposable 4 blade from K-Mart, one of Dorco’s private label clients. I was impressed so I went to the next step and invested into the SXA 1040 6 Blade Cartridge System. I no longer got nicked while shaving. Each blade lasted up to 3 weeks, 3 times longer than the old Gillette blades. At a cost factor of just over a dollar each, this was a great move in the right direction. The only down side is with my heavy beard, the SXA 1040 6 Blade Cartridge System just wouldn’t shave as close as I liked.
I recently reordered and switch to the FRA 1000 and FRA1040 4 Blade System Cartridges. For me, this is the answer. I have been using the Dorco 4 blade system for 6 weeks now. I get a smooth shave, there have been a couple nicks but for the close save I like, it’s worth it. The blades last a full 2 weeks (14 shaves) so this is very cost effective.
By the way, the 4 blade refill cartridges and the 4 blade disposables have slightly different blade systems. The angle of the cut on the disposable is a bit higher making a slightly harsher shave. The difference is slight but it can make a difference shaving comfort.
I really like FRA1040 4 Blade System Cartridges. For me they are the home run I have been looking for.
Not as close as expected

Does not shave as close as Gillette Mach3 that I have used for years. within 4-5 hours I notice stubble on cheeks. Would take about 8 hours with Mach 3.

Dorco offers an amazing razor for 1/2 the price I'm used to paying! Can't say enough GREAT things about this product!
