Gillette Platinum

Pros: 🪒
• Good balance of smooth and sharp
• Very comfortable shave
• Beginner-friendly
Cons: 🪒
◦ Not the cheapest
I got a set off Amazon. They were not the cheapest at the time, but, seems to be around the range of other reputable blades in the site. I really enjoyed these blades as it gave me a smooth and comfortable shave with little to no irritation. It struck a good balance for me.

Pros: Smooth, sharp and usable for several shaves.
Cons: Expensive and not easy to find.
I liked the feel immediately. I would say it is on par with an Astra sp but much more expensive. It is probably a little sharper than an Astra, but not as smooth. At least as long lasting but not 2 times as long. If I could find a great price on these, I would buy a bunch for my lest aggressive razors. That is where the sharpness really shines.

Yes they are the same blades. I sent to them to Shyrlock. I think these blades are excellent. I didn't get them from Dr.Idiot, but my father got me some on a trip to the the Persian Gulf. These are sharp and smooth.
Hi ,

Can we get a confirmation if these are the same as those reported here:

http://badgerandblade.com/vb/showthread.php?t=99766

they seem to be identical blades? However, the reviews are in stark contrast.

Doesn't help. I am a fan of swedes and would like to purchase some gillette platinums that look like the pictures show in the above 2 links but I don't know which review to go on :(

Cheers
I am new enough to this hobby that I have not had the luxury of owning any of the famed, "Swedes". I am told that these blades are exactly the same, just made in Russia...and I believe it! I experienced the smoothest nick-free shave I've had thus far. The blade just glides over my skin & tough beard with no trouble.

I only gave a "7" for price, because they are hard to find and expensive. They come in a cardboard package and also have the infamous Russian glue spots, so I marked down on the packaging as well. Otherwise, this is one smooth ride!
