    Been my go to blade for ages have never had a bad shave and the price is great 100 blades last for a long time only shaving every other day and getting 3 or 4 shaves out of one blade not even bothering to remove the blade and dry it off. I just change them out just because and not really needing to but at around 12 cents a blade it is no biggie.

    I am writing an updated review for these blades. I initially tried 2 blades, which were dull, then another blade from a separate box, which was also a dud. This was all probably my dumb luck, but I came back to these blades after running low on other blades and they were amazingly similar to how I remembered them feeling on my face. Has quality control dropped on these? Probably. Would I buy them again? Sure.

    It pains me to write a bad review here as this is one of my favorite places to order from online. Seriously, you guys are great! However, I wanted to leave a few words of warning. The new stock of Astra sp blades are not comparable to how they performed before. They are dull and very difficult to get a good shave out of. The packaging has changed, as well as the blades themselves. They have a very light print of the brand and only on one side. Overall, they give a cheap impression. I even checked Amazon and people seem to have the same experience. It’s a sad day when you lose your favorite brand of blade. But hey, I guess this is an excuse to place another order from Maggards.

    Versatile blade, sharp and smooth. Good test blade for a new razor. Recently the blades changed from ink printed on both sides to laser etched on one side. No difference in the shave just an updated look.

    Astra SP is very smooth to keep your face secure,yet sharp enough to kill all stubs that stand in the way.If you are newbie buy this one and experiment.If you need to check a new DE razor just load it with Astra SP for yet more experimentation.Or just use the blade a couple of times for a regular shave and then replace the blade with another one,they are cheap as chips but far from cheap junk.

    About one thin dime for each blade gets you a consistently smooth shave with little irritation. What in the world are you waiting for. GET SOME. Maggard CS is the BEST.

    I tried these blades almost two years ago and got some razor burn from taking do many more passes to get the shave I wanted. Happen to try them again and I can’t explain it, but I can do two passes now wtg and xtg with a few touch ups and be BBS. I use a Maggard V2OC, V3 and an Edwin Jagger. Maybe it’s taken me this long to get my technique down? The shave are so good with this blade along with the low cost they I may just put all my other blades away and use only these. Get blades, great prices and Maggards is the best to buy from. I’ll be stocking up on these blades for sure!!!

    These are the best blades you can buy for the money. I replace one of these in my razor every 7 days. Back in 1972 I also fell for the Track 2 BS that was pushed on everybody. I lived that life for years and blew thousands of dollars not realizing I was throwing money down a rat hole. All you need is what Dad and Grandpa used. 1 blade in a good razor and you will get the smoothest shave ever. These are the blades that my Dad used back in the 1960’s. They are made in other countries using the exact same machines that made them here in the 1960’s. Go back to the future and use these. You will be very happy with them.

    These are also in my rotation, I use them about once a week. They’re very sharp but also very smooth, I get a bbs from only 2-passes (Anything more and I get razor burn due to sensitive skin but coarse hair) whereas every other blade I use requires 3-passes for bbs. They’re really good for the money, by far the best bargain and they last forever – if your face is compatible with them.

    Treated my face extremely well for 4 shaves! I was very sad when I had to change it out, as I was only afforded one from my wife’s sample pack. Out of all the blades I’ve tried with my maggard MR1, these have been the best fit thus far. Great choice for someone with sensitive skin.

    Good value. Solid performance. Smooth. Reasonably sharp. I have come to prefer Persona, but these are good blades.

    I have never noticed much of a difference between different brands of blades, so I figured I would purchase these blades in bulk. These blades are so inexpensive! 100 blades for less than $12! That’s well over a years worth of shaving.

    These blades are very comfortable. They have no problem turning my thick bearded face into a smooth baby face. Do yourself a favor and buy these blades. They are just as good, if not better than any other blade on the market, and they are very inexpensive.

    Got a sample pack of these when I first started wet shaving a little over a year ago. I actually got 5 sample packs. I tried them all out. Wasn’t too impressed with many of them, so I stayed with the Personna lab blues and Feathers. I happened across one of these lying in my drawer a few weeks back. Wow! What a great shave! I would place it somewhere between the Personna and Feather blades in terms of sharpness. But it cannot be touched for smoothness. Period. And they last! I have fairly tough facial hair, and I do 4 passes every day. I get 4 amazing shaves out of each blade with absolutely NO irritation. I don’t doubt that I could get 5 shaves out of them. I ordered this 100-pack, and I haven’t looked back since. Tried a Personna again for the heck of it one morning, and my face was like hamburger afterward. LOVE this blade!. Paired with my Maggard razors, they can’t be beaten.

    What’s cool is I can use these blades in my old vintage razors and still get an awesome shave!!

    At this price, Astra can’t be beat. I’m new to wet shaving, but these blades have been very kind to my face despite my poor technique. So far, I’ve tried Feathers, Sharks, and Astras. Astras have given me my best shaves. They also last 3-4 shaves, which means $15 will last you a long time.

    Honestly, while I don’t get the legs out of these razors that many seem to (I have pretty sensitive skin and after 2 full shaves I usually switch out) 100 blades for 12 dollars is an absolute screaming deal. At that rate I get 200 shaves a box. I shave on MWF during the work week. That means I use 3 blades every 2 weeks. That’s 78 blades a year. That means for 12 dollars I got well over a year of razor blades. Great price.

    As for the blades themselves they are great. Sharp enough to cut in any direction but not so sharp that I can’t get a good feel for the direction of the grain changing. Overall a great blade.

    Awesome blades. I get 4 or 5 shaves out of each one and never have any issues if I go several days between shaves.

  18. 5 out of 5

    :

    These are excellent blades both in quality and value. I’ve sampled Feathers, Shark, Merkur and Wilkinson Sword blades, but these are my favorites. I can get three face and one head shave from each blade. That is less than $0.15 per week for a great shave!

    I bought these after seeing so many good reviews about them and after using a couple of them have to say they’re a nice smooth sharp blade, but at the same time not as sharp and smooth as my favorite blades the persona blues….the Astra took more passes and touch up to get the same result I get using the persona blue or the 7 O’Clock Gillette Sharpedge….but I do like these blades and will keep using them with my other favorite two…I think because it took more passes with the Astra is why I felt a burning on my neck when using my alum block afterwards…with my persona blue or the sharpedge blades I don’t get any burning feeling…so I now have three favorite blades and this is where I stop trying others…got three that work great for me and I’m going to stock up on all three of these…so Maggards will be getting more orders from me buying these blades in bulk until I have a good supply of all three on hand…I keep thinking what if…the prices jump up or worse yet one gets discontinued suddenly…Maggards has fast shipping and great service so they will be getting my orders for sure!

    I first tried these when the came with a Maggard start kit. I’ve tried a few other brands but these seem to work the best for me. And at just 12 cents a blade … great bargain.

    Settled on these after getting a blade sampler. Great blades, I get 2-3 shaves per blade, and price is perfect.

    :

    I’ve tried many different brands of razor blades throughout the years but I keep coming back to the Astra Superior Platinum. These are high quality, sharp razor blades at a great price. They work great for me with all my safety razors. I highly recommend them! Thank you.

    After trying many blades in a sampler pack, I found that these were the best for me in terms of quality of shave and longevity of the blade. This is a great price, this 100-pack should last me a long time.

    Order processing and shipping were incredibly fast, as usual.

  24. 5 out of 5

    :

    My favorite blades so far. I use two per week for comfort.

  25. 5 out of 5

    :

    These are the best blades I’ve tried. They last 3-5 times before needing to be tossed out.

  26. 4 out of 5

    :

    Great razors, cut smoothly even after 4-5 shaves, comfortable, better then derby IMO.

  27. 5 out of 5

    :

    These blades are GREAT! Plenty sharp to easily cut down a few days growth without being to sharp as some blades can be. Remember everyones face is different, so results may vary with all the different skin types out there. I just knocked out 3 days growth with ease and comfort with a brand new blade and will get at least 3 more shaves out of it. Get a sample pack and give-em’ a try.

    As with any blades, your results may vary. However, I find these to be the best blades for my face.

    I compare their sharpness to feather (maybe a little less sharp, but also more comfortable) only it’s much less expensive.
