    i have yet to do a comparison between the 2 different platinum packaged blades.the blue boxed ones like yours are marked with the arrows, the blue/silver platinum boxed blades do not.the gillette silver blue blades feel a little smoother than the platinums on first shave..i will do a test between the 2 platinum blades. both are made in russia but have different markings on the blade.. we will see..

    In the beginning I had no interest in trying another blade, I have all that I need ( 40 years worth ) yet I let myself get sucked into buying more blades. :sad027: I have no less than 10 blades that I could shave with FOREVER! But I'll have to admit, these Gillette Platinum would definitely be in the top tier of the blades that I use. I have (4) shaves on the first blade and there is no difference from the very first shave. We'll see, time will tell. Let's see, 50 x 20 = 3 years.. Better make my blades supply 43 years worth..:lyrtuy5:

    Very efficient. I have only used the Astra Sp in it but it never needs more than 2 passes. Excellent razor.

    i am glad you like it.when i go t my first one my technique wasn't the best so i did a focus with it ,really changed the shaves..i love em but part of it is in my head due to my brit razor obsession..great daily razor, with a solid handle like a ball end they are well balanced and are a treat..worth a try, any one will work..

    The Gillette Red Tip never fails to perform wonderfully.

    Not only are those TV Specials cool looking, I believe they shave better than all the other Flare Tips. Except the Red Tips of course. Great shave man!

    I have always felt those Gold Fat Handle Tech’s are among the most regal safety bar razors Gillette made. Right up there with the 1946/47 Aristocrat. Which, for most of my collecting years, was my all time favorite razor. Great choice !
