Made in Russia, the platinum coated Astra Superior Platinum gets great reviews amongst the wet shaving community.
FREE UK POSTAGEIf you are from the UK and buy these razor blades on their own then you will not be charged the standard post and packaging charge. Received these blades as a free gift, good blades, very sharp, they last between 3 and 5 shaves and they don't irritate my skin. I got my first set of these as part of a large sample selection pack of blades a few years back.
I found these blades very sharp and smooth and they give me a very close,comfortable shave in both my Merkur Future and 39C Slant Bar. These blades make that possible, my shaving rash has gone and i get a perfect shave each time.
Still blades seem to be such a horses for courses item that it's worth ploughing through the excellent selection at the Shaving Shack to find your personal favourites.


They also last longer than other blades and I get a weeks shaving out of one of these making them good value, Overall an excellent everyday blade. A big disappointment since another Russian blade, the 7 o'clock, is possibly my absolute favourite blade. Simple, unconditional, no nonsense, NO BULL.10 pack of double edge replacement blades fit in old-fashioned safety razors. After having no issues with those blades, I decided to order a a 100 pack (partially because it is such an inexpensive option). These are much better than Derbys in my opinion and I suspect would work well with most razors and faces. The blade slides very well on your face and I would recommend it for newcomers because the shave are really comfortable. Personally I find that these blades last slightly longer than most other blades, but that's just me.


Whilst I've still a few other brands to work through, these could well be a blade I'll keep coming back to. I get a close shave out of them, and can easily get 2+ weeks (10-12 shaves) per blade before I start to notice any dulling of the blade.
I can get four shaves out of each side, so eight in total, but usually swap after three just to change once a week on the blade.
