What's new

Tiger Platinum (made in Czech Republic)

Just received them in my giant blade sampler. Bought one of every blade available from tryablade and razobladesclub (obviously omitting the overlaps.) Should be using the ol’ tiger in the coming months. Must say though, the Tiger 3H takes the cake for worst blade ever. Actually cracked in half and rusted after 2 shaves. Found out after the fact they’re not meant for shaving and man is it apparent! Horrid on a whole new level!

These definitely are so I’m sure it’ll be a better experience.
 
Tried one of these tonight. Sharp and smooth on shave #1 in my GC 84
+1. I used one for the first time today in concert with the new B&M Nordost soap in a "ball end" Tech and am very, very impressed!! If it goes five shaves like this then it's 100 blade hanger worthy. :thumbsup:

Good to hear. I ordered some from Maggards recently and I'm looking to trying them.
 
I just received a pack of Tiger Platinum blades in the mail. I will give them a try tomorrow morning and post my thoughts.

My first shave with the Tiger Platinum was very nice. I found it smooth and sharp and no tugging, weepers or nicks. I would say this blade was very close in performance to an Astra SP or a Gillette 7 o'clock green. Only one shave in, so its hard to pass judgement. I will use this blade for the rest of next week and then post again.
 
I got five excellent shaves out of the first blade. I decided to toss it as they are so cheap and I rarely go over 4- 5 shaves ever on any blade for that matter. :thumbsup:
 
Yesterday I was browsing at Maggards and bought a 100 of the Tiger blades along with 100 of my Astra SP and Dr. Harris Marlborough and Tabac soaps. Will be here Wed. I'll give the Tigers a try on Thur. morning and report back
