It really depends on your face which blades work best. I suggest trying a variety pack first. You can usually but a 25 pack with 4 different brands to try for $5
. They have a 6 pack for $12 as well.
I agree that Astra's have worked well for me but so have Lords and Big Ben. Sharky's, not so much. I can only get a week out of them while I usually get two out of the other brands.
I too use a Merkur Model 180 Long Handle. I'll never go back to cartridges.
