I've long been a Venus girl, but these razors far surpass Venus razors, especially for someone with coarse hair. Price point is about $10.69 for five, which compared to Venus is great deal. They're lightweight, glide easily (with or without shave cream/gel) the lubricating strip is top notch & long lasting. I've never nicked or cut myself with these razors either, which sometimes happened with Venus razors. My favorite!
