Astra Superior Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades

This 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 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 the economical 100 pack, if you know you love them.

  • some of the most popular and well-respected de blades on the market.
  • Fits all standard double edge safety razors
  • Excellent for Parker, Merkur, Gem, Gillette and all other brands of standard Safety Razors
  • To avoid excessive wear on the blade leading to dulling, make sure to rinse the blade after each use – never wipe it.
  • Recommended for beginners as they are not overly aggressive and are forgiving
  • 5 Blades per Tuck

    I am 7 months into wet shaving, so this is coming from a relative “newbie* viewpoint.

    After n starting with the gateway VanDerHagen shaving kit from Target ( with those AWFUL blades!), I started buying other razors to find the one(s) better suited to my face/skin.

    I did the same journey with DE blades as well, buying an assortment with 16 different brands and a couple blades of each. I set up a spreadsheet to record my observations of shave quality (rated 1 through 5) and blade durability (how many shaves I could get per blade). I could then also compare retail cost per blade and then figure out cost per shave.

    It was very interesting to see which brands my face liked best- some blades were almost “too sharp” and left me bleeding, or started out good and dulled quickly.

    The winner for me were these Astra blades… Great shave right out of the package, consistent day to day, and longer lasting. And they with well in all my razors – from my vintage Gillette FatBoy and Slim to my Vikings Blade Emperor and Parker Variant.

    I look forward settling in with these knowing that I will not be disappointed.

    This old fashioned blade gets the job done as well as the expensive Gillettes or Schicks. I was using this older form of shaving which is a ritualistic procedure with the brush and soap, and the clean up after. But Big Shave lived up to their name with the price of those twin to 5 edge cartridge blades costing high per shave. The difference between a good twin edge and 5 edge cartridge is not apparent. So I decided to once more go back in time and do not regret it.
    This blade is fantastic, it gives a smooth clean shave. At just two shaves per blade, the blade cost per shave is better than half. I don’t see how the multi edge blades did better. And a small side benefit is the elimination of plastic waste.
    Excellent product.

    these blades are so sharp, compared to the Viking blades i got with the set i ordered with the Viking razor, i thought they weren’t working the first shave, they were so smooth they cut right through my tough hair, i get about 6 shaves out of 1 blade, these are my go-to blades for now on, way way better then the Vikings

    When I first got a safety razor, I tried Feather blades. they were good, but didn’t last very long. These are cheaper and I can get 10 shaves per blade. If you shave every other day, and get 10 shaves per blade, it will be nearly 5.5 years before you need more.

    Very sharp! Depending on your razor they can be a bit harsh. I have the Merkur classic handle and these are on the edge of too intense. I like it that way though. Good smooth shave, at least six shaves per blade in my experience.

    These blades are amazing for the price. Nothing has beaten them for me so far. Sharp, and stays sharp for about 3-4 shaves. The perfect razor blade

    I have a medium beard and shave every 2-3 days. This blade provides ultra smooth shaving experience with a longevity lending to 4-5 good shaves on a blade. i use with an open comb razor that yields a BBS shave on one pass and cleanup!!
