This blade meets and exceeds all expectations...A great value, and worth a try!
I have a coarse beard and sensitive skin. Astra SP give a me a very close shave without irritating my face. And I two shaves per blade.
Okay, I'm an old guy. That's why I remember the Gillette slogan. When I got tired of paying for disposable razors, Razor Emporium offered several sample blades. After trying all of them, the Astra Platinum is my favorite. These blades give me a close shave without a lot of nicks and scrapes, and they are durable enough to use for up to two weeks each ... for 25-cents per blade! 'Nuff said?
Very good blades, still new to de shaving, like them better than red personna blades
I have tried several different blades being a beginner wet shaver. After trying all the blades in my sample pack and a few others I purchased I determined these were the best for my face. I have fair Irish Skin and a course beard and these were smoothest blades with the closest shave. They didn't irritate my skin at all.
I have reviewed six different blades from all over the world and put it in a video form, please check the link below if you are interested in seeing it from a beginner's perspective.
Started using these after finding them in the 'sensitive skin' starter pack.
Quickly became my favourite - definitely recommend them for sensitive skin with a coarse beard.
Surprisingly forgiving all round (good for novices) but still get great results from them.
Also have it on good authority that they're great under the arms too..
I really like these blades. They are sharp, not crazy sharp. Great, close shave with no irritation at all. They also last a LONG time. Each blade will give you quite a few shaves. I will be picking up a lot more of these over the next few years!
These have turned into my GO TO blade. Sharp enough to make the shave easy and smooth, but not so sharp that you're afraid of it.
Recommended to me by Tiffany at Razor Emporium to use in my Edwin Jagger DE89 and I couldn't be happier. These bad boys give me an amazingly close, knick & irritation free shave. I will be using these as my go to blade. Thanks Tiff for the tip.
