These are great. My two sons and I heard that dorco were the same as dollar shave club products for half the price. We began using the 6 blade model but found it was difficult to keep clean cause the blades were so close together. This cut the life significantly as retained moisture is the death of razor blades. This model with 4 blades gives a great shave, super easy to clean. I shave every day and two weeks or more from one cartridge. 20 cartridges will last a year and the ten pack comes with a new handle each time. BTW this handle is superior to the one that comes with the six blade model.
Try this razor and you will be pleased.

I'm a balding guy, so I shave my head all the time. I usually use Fusion Proglide razors, which are quite excellent. However, they are also quite excellent at obliterating your wallet.

I had a Headblade for awhile, but once you get the hang of proper head shaving, it becomes quite clear that that little yellow Hot Wheel razor on your head is much more gimmick than function.

Which led me to the Dorcos. I opted to try the 4 blades because I felt any higher would likely clog up too much with head shaving. I was thinking I could step down to 3 blades if necessary. The 4 blades do rinse well, and don't really clog unless I go 8+ days without shaving my head. The Dorco shave is noticeably not as smooth as the Fusion, but is in no way uncomfortable. Its pretty much on par with the quality of the shave you'd get from a Headblade.

The cartridge life is very respectable, better than the Fusions, which degrade noticeable after a few shaves. But at this excellent of a price point, cartridge life is not really a concern. You will have to finesse the Dorcos a little more, as they don't contour to the head as well as the Fusions, which means a few more passes, but at 80% of the performance of a Fusion at a fraction of the price, its worth the extra 30 seconds it may add to your shave. I will be sticking with these until all my hair falls out or I get a HT haha.

I shave my head and face daily. The best razors I have used are the Gillette Mach 3 and Fusion. The problem with daily usage of these blades is the price of replacement blades, even at Costco prices. The Mach 3's are $2 a blade and the Fusions are $3.55. I go through a blade every 3 days. I tried Harry's Shave Club - - the blades through that service cut me badly when I shaved against the grain. They dig in like a wood chisel.

I saw the Dorco Pace razor and blades on a Google search for good, inexpensive blades. I ordered a package from Amazon with the 4 blade cartridges. I have used the razor to shave my head and face 3 times now. The blade shave was very close to the Mach 3. It took a while to get used to the more ungainly handling of the razor - - it took some extra effort to keep the blades in contact with my head, but the shave was good and close and didn't cut me.

Overall, after you get used to the "feel", these blades and the handle are a great value. I look forward to saving a lot of money in the future while getting a close shave.

My favorite cartridge razor has been the PII 7oclock 7oclock Pii Trac Ii Razor (Compatible With Tracii Blades) by 7oclock. The blades are not available on Amazon for some reason, but the handle is. Weird. However, with just a little searching one can find said blades. Enough of that though this review is about the Dorco/Dollar Shave Club razor. As I said my favorite cartridge razor has been the PII, this razor does nothing to change that.

The four blades do a decent job of shaving, but I always felt like they were tugging in certain areas instead of cutting clean. I noticed this most on my neck. I was forced to dig out my Tend Skin to deal with the bumps, something I hadn't had to do in a long time. I think the last time I had to do that I was using a Harry's razor. Compared to a Harry's razor the Dorco blades cut through stubble like an expertly wielded Samurai sword cutting through warm butter. In fact if I didn't know any better I might think I was getting a good shave. Sadly I grew up around men that shaved with double edge razors and had a barber as a young man that offered straight razor shaves, so I do know better. Having said all that, these razors don't suck, but they don't really shine either. If your goal is to save money and suffer as little as possible, this could be your razor.

Only time will tell how the blades hold up, but there are many things to like about this razor. The handle is solid, feels more expensive than my old more expensive razor. The swivel on the blades works really well, easy to follow contour of face!

To be fair, I also changed shaving cream before using this razor. I went from a can of Foamy to a tube of Cremo. That stuff is amazing!! Started using to much but have since adapted to using less. In fact, between this Pace 4 razor and the Cremo shave cream, it makes shaving almost enjoyable!!

I've only used this razor about 6 times, same blade, so it's kinda early to speak about how the blades last. But the handle and action of swivel is great. If you decide to try these blades, do yourself a favor and get a tube of Cremo too. Best shaving experience I've had in my almost 70yrs!!

First off let me start by stating that I've been using DSC 4-blade razors for over 6 months. I shave my head bald twice a week and very rarely do I get any cuts from using the DSC razors. So naturally I was very pleased when I read that I could buy the very same blades at a discount on Amazon. This week I used the Dorco branded 4-blade razor for the first time and as expected, it snapped right into my existing DSC handle. I could feel an immediate difference with the very first stroke across my stubble-covered scalp. The blade felt sharper, almost too sharp, immediately causing me to be more cautious. When I was done I had 3 nicks on my scalp. Maybe it was just a defective blade - I don't know. I will try a fresh new blade and report back in a few weeks.

Edit:Looks like the first blade I tried was defective. These are no different than the ones from DSC. They work great.

Was thrilled with the handle, but lately have been noticing mysterious half inch long skin scratches on the surface of the places where I use the shaver the most.

None actually draw blood, but there is a definite raised line that is sensative to the touch, in each of the specific locations that I've carefully used the shaver on, one day after I've revisited the areas.

Due to not wanting to encourage growth, which is what shaving seems to do best, I only shave these areas about once a week.

I've not opened the other packages yet, & will further examine the original cartridge for any raised sharp areas that could be causing this most specific of skin irritations, which have been noticeable to others as well.

I tested the 6 blade dorco and figured after a life time of shaving I finally found a reliable brand. Anyone remember when Wilkinson Sword was the blade of the day and then they went into the toilet? So Dorco 6 was giving me 3 comfortable shaves and then 2 more "end of life" shaves. Well I really think 6 blades is overkill, it's only hair people, so went for the 4 blade version. Has success killed Dorco? I'm afraid so. The drop off in quality was huge. I got 1 comfortable shave, 1 "ok" (think drug store plastic 2 blade) and 1 howler. This won't cut it. I'll try a 6 one more time to see if my observations are correct. Dorco, you need to sharpen your game.

I bought both the 6 blade and the 4 blade to compare. My beard is very heavy and I have to shave every day or I look like Grizzly Adams after a couple days.

The good- These blades are inexpensive and work OK. The bad- I don't think either the 4 blade or 6 blade are as sharp as some of the other mainstream brands I have used. I was spoiled by the German Wilkinson Sword (Shick Hydro?) blades when they were available. The brand new Dorco feel like my Wilkinsons after I had used them a few times, just a tiny bit dull. I think the 6 blade Pace shaves closer than the 4 blade, but pulls more. The handles work OK for a while but I have gone through a couple in the past couple years. The heads are TIGHT on the handle and feel like you are going to break the handle when removing them.

A fantastic shave for a fraction of the cost of Big Names! After doing much research of shave systems offered by Dollar Shave Club and Harry's, both of which had many positive reviews, several people mentioned that this little known company named Dorco, is the manufacturer of the Blades for Dollar Shave Club. So off to Amazon I went to do my research. I didn't want the umpteen bladed cartridges, 3 or 4 blades per cartridge would be good enough for my needs! But they have to be quality made cartridges. I'm so tired of the expensive brands that cost $4 per cartridge and those cheap disposables that don't shave or rinse out very well. So after careful review, I went with the Dorco Pace 4, and I'm just blown away!
First off, the Handle feels like a very good quality and sturdy handle, very comfortable to hold. I didn't expect that! Secondly, the blades just glide right through 2 days of stuble growth without any snags. And the hairs rinse out completely without having to beat up the blade on the sink. I've been using the same blade for 2 weeks now and it's still very sharp. At first it wasn't the closest of shaves, but after about 10 days it has become as close a shave as I can expect. It does take a little while for your beard to adjust to any new shaving system. Also, be sure to rinse out your blades out after each use, they'll stay sharper much longer. Anyhow, i'm a new believer in this Dorco brand and very happy with the quality and price! I may try out the Pace 3 blade cartridges just to see how well they perform as well.
