Product Reviews
decent shave and forgiving
<p>I have sensitive skin and a very coarse beard so I've had a hard time finding blades that can do the job without destroying my face. These aren't necessarily the sharpest blades but there is more to a good shave than just pure sharpness. These give a pretty good shave without tugging and without the burn or nicks that I've received from several other blades. In fact, after 3-4 shaves, they still give a fair shave without the nicks which is big in my book. That being said, everyone is different so I recommend trying many different blades before you buy 100 of anything. I just ordered some Feathers to try out but Astras will definitely stay in my medicine cabinet.</p>
Simply flawless
<p>I used this blade tonight and received the best shave I've ever had. Talk about sharp and smooth. I have been trying different blades and really like the red personna and thought that it would be very similar to the Astra sp man was I wrong. It's smoother! Only question is will it last as long as the red personna. If you are looking for a smooth blade I would encourage you to try this blade. You won't be disappointed.</p>
Good, but no great
<p>I started DE shaving the end of June 2014. I use a Merkur Long Handled Safety Razor, Proraso Shaving Soap (eucalyptus and menthol) and an Escali Badger Shaving Brush. This is my second time through the blades. I wanted to get a technique down before writing a review. I purchased Merkur, Feather, Red Personna, Derby Extra, Gillette Silver, Crystal, and Astra Superior Platinum. The Astra gives a decent shave, I didn't get nicked. In fact, I haven't nicked myself one time, since I began DE shaving. The shave was just not as close as I expected. I don't have a thick beard and only have to shave about every three days. The Astra lasted about three shaves before it started to dull. I did take the razor apart after each shave, rinsed and air dried. Not sure if this really helped. I got about three shaves out of the first blade too, without taking the razor apart after each shave.</p>
have gone back to DE razor shaving and experimented with 5 different blades (feather, bolzano, merkur, personna and astra). i shave once or twice a week with a heavy beard. hands down winner for me is astra. smooth and comfortable every time and getting about 4 shaves per blade.
Not for me
I had a horrible experience with these blades, I am nicked all to hell and like one of the other guys I too have stubble that I could not get at with these blades.
The Astra is a very Good Razor Blade
The blade fit right into my old Schick DE razor. After my first shave with this blade I'm impressed. It performed really well; better than the blades I used to get at the local drugstore. It shaved like a dream. If your new to DE shaving you might like this blade as I found it performed the task it was meant to without any issues, no nicks or cuts, and reasonably forgiving I think. I would find it hard to do better. :) I have some other blades I picked here and have yet to try as well but the Astra's are a great quality razor. From Russia with love!
