Razor Blade Review

I purchased three different blade brands as a sampler. I’m afraid that as of this writing I have not yet tried the Astra blades but I did shave several times with the Shark blades and I have found them to be average. I use a Merkur double edge safety razor and no blade works as good in it as Merkur blades which also seem to be hard to come by. Even the Feather brand blades don’t shave as nice as the Merkur blades. Maybe if I used them in a Feather brand razor they would work better??

  • How long have you been Wet Shaving? 32 years using Gillette cartridge razors until I discovered I suffered from toxic masculinity. Two years with my Merkur and I will never go back!
  • Do you prefer a Safety Razor or Straight Razor? Safety…I will try a straight razor in the future when I’m ready.
  • Do you prefer a Shave Soap or Cream? I use soap, It lasts a very long time but I think it could be better if I mix a little dollop of cream in with it
  • Have You Ever Tried a Pre-Shave Oil or Lotion? Yes, just recently purchased Smolder pre-shave oil and I didn’t notice a benefit of using it. It smells really good though.

Astra Blades

I am not very happy with Astra Platinum blades. Barely got one good shave out of each blade.

My favorite blade!

I find the Astra blades to be the perfect sharpness for my beard. I find feathers just a little too sharp, I use the Astra's in some old school Gillette razors, a Mercur 38C, and a Edwin Jagger DE89..

Great blade.

I had stopped using double edged blades because the ones sold at the local grocery chains were of poor quality. I was pleased to find Classic Shaving's wide selection of DE blades. The Astra blades are excellent, especially when teamed up with Classic Shaving's shave soaps. These work so much better than foam from a can. Stock up and enjoy!
