  • Superior double edge razor blade
  • Stainless steel, platinum coated for smoothness
  • Choose from packs of 5 blades or 100 blades

With the privatization of companies throughout the Soviet Bloc after the fall of the iron curtain, Gillette acquired Astra, a blade manufacturing company. Soon these excellent double edge razor blades were being distributed around the world. Originally manufactured in the Czech Republic, now they are produced in Russia.

The stainless steel blade is coated in platinum for a smooth glide. The double edge fits all standard DE safety razors. This is a popular choice for many wet shavers, not aggressive as a Feather, but still has a nice sharp edge: durable and long-lasting. The Astra Superior Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades are individually wrapped to assure safety, sterility, and shelf life. Get a pack of 5 to try them out, or get the economical 100 blades if you know you love them.

To avoid excessive wear on the blade leading to dulling, make sure to rinse the blade after each use - never wipe it.

Size: 5 blades/pack or 20 packs for a total of 100 blades

Made in Russia

Great blade

Best blade I’ve used. Not as sharp as Feather but doesn’t cut up your face like Feather does either. Definitely the best cut I’ve received and I’ve tried most of the top blades. Only concern with this blade is it’s Made in Russia, otherwise it’s great.

My go-to

As far as longevity and cheap price goes, this is my favorite blade. I use it in a Parker shavette. I shave my short legs (I'm a woman) every few days and a single blade lasts a little over a month. Since I started using a straight razor, I think my leg hair grows back slower and that's really nice. Will definitely buy more of these.

I have used this blade for 15 years after receiving it as a gift. I turn the blade over every day after use and use the same blade for a week.

Amazing Shave

A couple of months ago I purchased a large selection of double edged blades. After trying two brands I gave the Gillette Astra a try. Couldn’t get over the close, smooth shave I get. No pulling and the more I shaved the quicker I started to move across my face. No nicks! I continued my quest for my perfect blade but after two more shaves of so-so results I thought, what’s the point, I found the perfect blade for my face! Buy them now, they will be hard to find after Russia invades the Ukraine. .
