After the fall of the iron curtain and with the privatization of companies throughout the Soviet Bloc, Gillette acquired Astra, manufacturing company specializing in blades. Soon these excellent 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. This provides a smooth glide over the skin. The double edge fits all standard DE safety razors. This is a popular choice for many wet shavers; it has nice sharp edge: durable and long-lasting. They are individually wrapped to assure safety, sterility, and shelf life. Get a pack of 5 to try them out or get this economical 100 pack, if you know you love them.
Rinse the blade after each use - never wipe it to avoid excessive wear on the blade leading to dulling.
Size: 20 packs with 5 blades each (100 total)
Made in Russia
