    Treet "Blue Special"

    Treet "Blue Special" Double Edge Blades.....

    I'm working my way through the Barberia Italiana Sample Pack, (the large #3, an excellent value in my opinion) and these are up for bat tomorrow AM:


    Has anybody used these yet? I really like the look of blade, it seems very well made and precise. The black color packs a ton of cool-factor. The edge seems sharp. (As it should:D)

    Here's some info for the curious:

    In the straight razor arena SR made in that country are considered...well...I hope that these DE blades turn out better for you. Let us know.

    Well, I have tried the Treet Platinum "super stainless"....and they were far superior to Derby blades (at least for my skin)

    I think they aren't stainless, aren't they? Take care of your beloved shaver.

    So far.....

    1st use (Treet Blued Steel) today went very well

    - No irritation
    - Smooth shave
    - Close shave

    The blade is rigid, even more so than a Sharp v2, yet just as forgiving. Works well with my skin. Will be using again tomorrow, in a more aggressive razor.

    I *really* like the Treet Platinum stainless. I'll give the Treet blue steel a try tomorrow.

    That big sampler pack is really a bargain, and I'm surprised at how many good blades I'm finding therein.

    I bought some of those from Paul at suffolk supplies and have yet to try them. From your description they sound as if they should be good shavers with the 'more ancient' Gillette razors.

    I have been using the Treet Blue Steel for my last two shaves and I must say that they were both excellent. I will use the same blade for a third shave. I have been using it in a 38c. I may have to "getta hunid".

    Man! What a GREAT shave I got with the Treet blue steel blade! I blogged it, but I want to say that I thank Trader Joe for pointing it out. I would have been slow to get to it otherwise.

    I do know that carbon-steel straight razors are said to take a sharper edge than stainless, so no reason not to think that a carbon steel DE would be extra sharp. Still, it was a surprise that it's both sharp and VERY smooth---doesn't have the tendency to surprise you that a Feather does.

    I did, of course, do a good prep, which helped: Musgo Real Glyce Lime Oil soap to wash my beard, then D.R. Harris Arlington shave soap, which makes a great lather. The razor was the Gillette NEW.

    Again, thanks, TJ.

    Maybe we're needing a BLADE BATTLE forum of a BLADE THROWDOWN forum with all the available blades that we can think of ??????
