can anyone advise where I can buy gillette swedish blades in the Uk ?
thanks v much
You won't find them. They have been discontinued for close to two years, and if you do find them on Ebay they are going to have a huge price premium associated with them.
ah ok thanks
what would be the closest equivalent currently available?
Gillette 7 O'Clock Super Platinum - the Russian version in the blue cardboard box.
There is also the Gillette Platinum with the blue border. Pretty much all of the Gillette blades in production are high quality, IMO.
The Gillette 7 am's in the Yellow packets seem easy enough to pick up in the UK and I rate these as decent blades.
Also if you looking for a super deal in the UK on blades at the moment check this out-
NOS Gillette Bleue Extras?
Unless you can find them in bulk, there are other blades that are more cost-effective and stocks of the Bleue Extras are very limited now.
A sample pack of Gillette blades or medical prep Personnas would be a good starting point for alternatives. The Super Thin Platinums are also one of the best current production blades and are extremely good value.
