I have been using Merker blades for years. Just switched to the Astra and what an improvement. I never thought just using a different blade could make such a difference. Im going to order enough to have a good supply, in my travel kit and never run out.
Astra Platinum Razor Blades
ASTRA PREMIUM PLATINUM only the best double-edge blades for your PHILANDRY safety razor. Not one part of those disposable razors is recyclable. And no matter how many blades they stack up, you won't get a better shave. Get the best shave, free of irritation and ingrown hairs, while being friendly to the environment.
A box of five double-edge platinum blades will last you a good long while and create much less waste (and no plastic!).Keep an empty coffee can with a slit cut in the lid to safely dispose of my blades once they have dulled.
