About Astra Super Platinum Double Edge Razor Blades
Astra blades are reasonably priced and give a smooth, comfortable shave. Before the Soviet Bloc was destroyed, Astra blades were only manufactured in the Czech Republic and could only be purchased in the region. Soon after, Astra was purchased by Gillette making them available worldwide. These fine blades are now produced in Russia.
These stainless steel razor blades are given a platinum coating which gives them a sharp edge and smooth, flexible glide. Astra blades are a popular choice among wet shavers because they’re not exceptionally sharp or as aggressive as, for instance, Feather blades tend to be. They’re durable and priced reasonably which makes them a great value and their forgiving edge makes them a great choice for wet shaving beginners.
