Swedish G's

Item Description

I find it hard to believe no one has reviewed these.

I have had the pleasure of using and have had a good experience with them.

The first time was a bit rough but I think it was a bad blade because the other ones I used were just great!

Price is a bit steep and they are hard to get.

I find them to be sharp but not the sharpest out their.

Packaging is not much just a dispenser and the blades say Gillette on them that is it.

The rest gets a 10 in my book.
Longevity lasted a week!
Quality is great not a cheep feeling blade at all.
Darn smooth shaves from them.

Gave a very smooth and close shave in my Rotbart 2000 using Godrej Shaving Round. A tad more smooth even than a Gillette Bleue Extra. Pity the availability and price are not good.

I came across the Swedish Gillettes in my letterk sample pack. Out of the brands included, these were hands down my favorite. I was able to get a VERY close shave with absolutely no irritation or nicks. That's quite a feat considering, like many wet shavers, I got into this because of my sensitive skin.

I used them with a Merkur HD razor, a best badger from Crabtree & Evelyn, and TOBS St. Taylor cream. I managed the shave with only two (2!) passes. One with the grain and the other against. No XTC was needed and I only rarely needed to touch up a spot I missed in my morning haste.

Sadly, as of this review (Oct 09), these wonderful blades are no longer being made. If you can find these excellent blades, I highly recommend them. They're the high water mark in my wet shaving journey, and now I'm stuck trying to find a worthy replacement.

I really thought these would be great blades. I tried very hard to like them but they don't work for me. The cost isn't so bad, but I don't like them. I'm not too harsh a reviewer, but since I'm not getting paid to use them I won't give it a 6. They are covered in some sort of oil. I don't know why they are, but they just are. It isn't all bad though, it seems the oil prevents them from rusting any. But like I said, I don't like them. These blades' one and only strong point is their sharpness. I only wish they had the smoothness to match because they leave my face a little hot. Not smooth, the packaging is terrible.
