Hi @StratMan the same experience @astinus4 and I had. I wonder if they were a bad batch because many swear by them.
I reckon they were a bad batch mate.. i have tried voskhod blades before but only 5 and that was right at the start of my DE shaving journey. All i remember was that they were not very sharp but they were very smooth, unlike the ones we tried

Razor:- Karve SB - "E"

Razor: RazoRock Stealth Slant V1
Blade: Voskhod (1)
Brush: Shavemac ATG 2017 LE
Lather: Mike's Lemongrass & Eucalyptus
Post: APR post-shave serum

Somehow this mad week passed without me having a shave and it does feel so good to have a smooth face again. The Stealth Slant is just a joy to use - especially in a situation like this.

Keep safe everyone (y)
