Just spotted that Amazon now have their own brand “solimo” de blades. They are even cheaper than the Astra at £6.95 per 100.
Given the price difference I would probably just stick with the Astra but wondering if anybody has given these a try?
They're rebranded persona Tomy (just like some own supermarket blades or bluebeards revenge ones). I've tried them - in mild razors they work fine, my aggressive razors such as blackbird, didn't like them
I have a stack of them that came with a cheap butterfly razor I got for £10 or less last year. They started me off into this mad hobby and at the time I was in love with both as the blades and razor. Though mild and basic they gave a much nicer shave than my Gillette cartridge razor.
I have used the supermarket re-branded Personas and they are an OK blade. My subjective feeling at that time was that they were a little sharper, maybe even a little "better" for me than the (pre-2017) Derby Extras i was using at that time.
I have since moved to using predominantly Astra SP because, in my limited experience, i haven't found anything which brings the sharpness and smoothness of Astra SP at a similar price point.
