Gillette Platinum

Item Description

These are not the Swedish Gillette blades. I believe these are made by Procter and Gamble in the UK. they are available in pretty much any local pharmacy (except Boots) at around £1 for 5 blades. They come in the standard Gillette dispenser, which allows easy access without any wrappers, and a place to store the used blades underneith the dispenser.

These blades are great, and in fact, I actually prefer these to Swedish Gs. They are quite smooth, and sharp. A little like Derby blades actually. Perhaps a little sharper. They last a reasonable time (around 4 shaves), and great value for just £1.

There's not much more to say really. Although they will not replace my Feather blades any time soon, they are great blades. The only thing I am not so fond of is the dispenser, simply because I prefer blades in wrappers, but that's just me I think.

Latest reviews

FYI,

I found these at a local Walgreens (Hampton, VA). Haven't had a chance to try them yet, but mine say "Made in Russia" on the back. Would these be "Russian G's"?
These ARE the blades known as 'Swedish Gillettes'- all that's changed is the wording on the back of the packet. No-one really knows the country of manufacture- the reference to Sweden comes from the old packs having Stockholm listed first as a distribution centre.

Best blade out there IMO. When loaded in a Slant, it feels like there's no blade there, they're that smooth. No pulling or tugging whatsoever.
