Great edge and smoothness
Posted by Ravi on 18th Sep 2019
Have tried a zillion different types of blades over the last 4 years, haven't found a better blade than Astra Superior Platinum that's so well balanced between smoothness and sharpness. With the price at shaving.ie, I am not even bothered to try it for more 1-2 shaves per blade.
Excellent shave with these blades.

Great blades. Best on the market I've used a couple of different brands but these are definitely the best. Great value for money

Bought these blades for my first venture into shaving with a safety razor highly recommend the blades are sharp and 100 blades for around a tenner is excellent value

Good Blades \ Price

Main blades I use for a while now. Was considering Personna blades, but chose these instead. Gives a good shave with razors I use.
Good price and quick delivery.

First time user of them, having recently switched over from the work of Sensor etc.
Were delivered really quickly, they work a treat, and great price. Will be re-ordering.

Shure, might not be as sharp as feather, but boy these will get the job done - and you won't cut yourself. Price is just a bonus.

I am no expert when it comes to having experienced a large number of products but that's mostly because I have never had a problem with these blades. Also got delivered to my house within 5 working days which was more than I could ask for. Will continue to shop here.
Ticks all the boxes

For all round smoothness, price-point and quality you cannot beat Astra blades. Super fast delivery as usual.

Astra's have two main features. They're good and they are affordable. Probably the best prices quality ratio in the industry. They are really good! Sharp but smooth. They are no Feather blades who are still the undisputed emperor of sharpness and quality but Astra is a close second. I've tried many, many blades and for that price they are impossible to beat. I can recommend them to everyone who is serious about shaving. And the shipping was so quick! Within a day from Ireland to the Netherlands! Great!

Was using Derbys. The Astras give me a good shave without being too harsh. Very good
Great value, great blades

Great blades. Good amount of flex to use in a safety razor. Stay sharp for a lot of shaves/passes.
Astra blades working out best for me
Posted by Thomas on 23rd Mar 2015
When I got my first razor I took on the sample pack, and I was really trying to feel the difference between these ones and the Feather blades. The only thing I notices is that I got a lot more knicks with the Feather blades. The Astra will leave you with as good of a shave as it gets, and they are a very good value.
Very nice for the Price!

Can't go wrong, nice smooth close shaves at a reduced price.
Posted by newbie on 24th Feb 2015
These are my first blades ever so I can't compare to anything but they do a fine job for an excellent price.
One of the cheapest and the best for me!
Posted by BR on 22nd Jan 2015
Better than most other high end blades for my skin type, and at a fraction of the cost!
Can't beat this for the price.

Great value for money, and a great shave.

The best blades for the best price!
Smooth, Sharp, cheap and long lasting

Some time back, I developed some major issues with shaving. I looked into what the problem was, joined many helpful on-line forums, and discovered that it was in fact the "hi-tech" cartridge razor doing the damage! The blades weren't so much cutting, as pulling. Research led me to turn to what I percieved was "the past", to the double-edge razor. Once the razor was sorted, I needed to look at blades. From all the on-line surveys, there was one that stood out in them all - Astra Superior Platinum. Everyone mentioned how "comfortable" they were but I have to admit to wondering what they meant. I bought a sample pack of different blades and I soon found out exactly what they meant. I hadn't realised there was such a difference in the qualities of each type. From my trials, it was clear that there was one favourite for me too, the Astra SP! I had such confidence in them that I soon ordered a box of 100. I am currently getting five shaves from each blade and up until the end, they are very smooth, absolutely no tugging, and make short work of my coarse, curly stubble, especially the wire around my chin! At this rate, that will be 500 shaves for £7.50 - I dread to think what 500 cartridge shaves would cost me! The service from Shaving.ie was first rate, really quick, and well packaged, and also by far the cheapest!
