    In the very back of the drawer where I keep my razors I came across a forgotten small ziplock bag of a few varied blades left over from a random samples pack. Among the lot was a Polsilver Super Iridium Extra Stainless. Nice blade! Might very well be my next 100 purchase if this one sample makes it well through the week.

    Feather. Best blade for vintage aggressive razors. Second day with a Feather yields max comfort and efficiency.

    Astra SP

    because they went down to $7.31
    and I need to replenish the ones i have given away
    i'm working up to 1000+ blade cache
    buying blades keeps me from buying more expensive toys
    you can never have enough blades

    I bought a tuck of Gillette a Platinums today, wondering if they were similar to Silver Blues. Very similar packaging. Can anybody describe the difference?

    What are the differences between the normal packaged Gillette Platinums and those with Arabic writing? Any?

    the white /blue box have the british address on them but are made in russia, the white/blue/silver platinum are from st petersburg. the white/blue have the arrows for dispensers long gone it seems..beyond that i am not sure .haven't done a comparison so far.. 20190516_184152.jpg they are definitely inked on different lines..

    I need more blades like another hole in my head but? If push came to shove, I'd buy a few more just to see what they were. This isn't an exaggeration but I have close to 3,000 blades. :eatdrink047:

    I’m definitely interested in the difference between Platinum and GSBs.

    The first time I bought a 100 it was Astra Platinum and they worked really well. I was about to buy a second 100 when they were used up but went with Personna last second. Personna seems to work a little better for me but I get 5 shaves per blade instead of the 6 I got from Astra.

    Both are Gillette "Platinum" and not Platinum vs Silver Blue. :)

    I ordered a box of 100 Personnas for $ 8.24 off amazon. Why, because I never seen them that cheap before on Amazon.com
