Decent blades at really good price Review by: Tim 11/07/2017
Rating:
I have some serious issues with sensitive and easily cut skin. I had previously settled on Persona Red blades as the only ones that didn't cut me to shreds while giving a good shave.
I tried the Astra because the price was great, and I'm quite happy with them. I can get a few irregular shaves from each blade, with no extra issues on my skin. The shave I get is the same as I have had previously.
Overall, I am quite satisfied with these blades. Maybe not as good as the Persona, but the value is significantly better.
Seriously good blades Review by: Giovanni 27/06/2017
Rating:
The blades offer great value, they are far sharper, smother and more durable than blades that cost double or more. These blades are the most economical ones I have found.
Great deal, especuially when on sale. Review by: Tolga 20/06/2017
Rating:
With Astra blades you know what to expect. They're reliable, good quality and you'll get multiple shaves from the blades. If the 100 pack is on sale-- buy them! It is such a cost effective purchase
My favourite of the blades Review by: Sean 16/04/2017
Rating:
I find the Astra blades provide the best shave without being too aggressive on the skin. The only downside is they tend to go blunt faster than some of the other brands.
Better than I expected Review by: Keith 15/03/2017
Rating:
Based on price , I didn't expect much. I generally use the personna red, but due to unavailability I decided to use Astra to get me through to the Personna was back in stock.
Having used them and with the low price I will continue using these blades.
Sharp enough to get three plus shaves out of them.
I recommend trying these blades.
GREAT BLADES Review by: Sam 10/03/2017

Sharp, fantastic value and provides a great shave. Great shipping time too, only had to wait a few days.
God Value Review by: drwevil 16/02/2017

These blades are great value, very sharp and consistent but a little harsh in my current shave weapon....In other razors the are the bee's knees....
They will always be my backup blade.
THE BEST BLADES Review by: Chris 15/02/2017

These blades a great. I have tried many different blades and I have found these to be the best. Very smooth and great value!
My favourite blade Review by: Brod 8/02/2017
Rating:
By far my favourite blade, with the smoothest and most comfortable shave I've found. I haven't changed blades since first trying these.
Value and smooth. Review by: Toby 25/01/2017
Rating:
Great value and works best for me. Try a sample pack to work out your favourite and order a year's supply. Very smooth.
cant beat for the price Review by: Ben 13/01/2017
Rating:
not as sharp as feather but more forgiving just bought 200 at $31/200 compared to $39/100 for the feathers. sometimes the blades have a sticky residue on them from the plastic however they generally provide a quality shave at a price that nothing else seems to come close to. seem to dull in a linear way rather than the feathers which provide sharp performance then drop off fast
High quality, good value blades. Review by: Liam 23/12/2016
Rating:
I've tried several different blades, and continue to come back to these Astras. Glad to see them available in a 100 pack at a reasonable price.
My choice of razor blade. Review by: Gavin 21/07/2016
Rating:
These blades are really good value and I've bought them multiple times. I haven't actually tried any other brands because I see no reason to change!
Best Value for Money Review by: Matthew 17/05/2016
Rating:
Great blades if you're not fussy. No major differences between Astra and the 'premium' brands and for a great price they're a great fall back to have on hand.
Blade with the sweet spot . Review by: Simon 15/04/2016
Rating:
These are my favourite blades . They somehow manage to straddle the fine line between sharpness and smoothness .Great value pack too .
Great value blades Review by: Matt 13/03/2016
Rating:
Only blade I've tried, I have no reason to try any others. Great value and a great shave, especially for beginners in the traditional shaving arena.
Great blade at a great price! Review by: Adrian 7/02/2016
Rating:
I've tried 6 or 7 different blades and these by far provide the best balance between sharpness and price.
Almost as sharp the Feathers and with no skin irritation they are perfect.
At the special price of $19.95 you can't go wrong. Thanks Mensbiz
Unbelievable Blade Review by: Sean 5/02/2016
Rating:
Amazing to use, lucked out on my 3rd blade when first starting out in a blade sample pack and haven't changed since. Really smooth never had a nick and doesn't burn (used a derby blade where my face felt like it was burning after the first pass) great blade for sensitive skin.

I use a new blade every shave and at the price these Astra's are at its cheap as chips. After a year I'm still on my first 100 pack but still bought another 100, well why not. Just cant fault them.
5/5 Would buy again Review by: Ambert 1/01/2016
Rating:
These blades are amazingly smooth and very easy to use
Cannot fault them Review by: Anton 31/12/2015

Very smooth and very sharp. Overall a very nice blade at an even better price. these are now my go to blade for daily use.
bang for buck Review by: Ian 5/12/2015

I have tried a lot of different blades and these provide the best bang for your buck around.
My Go-To Blade Review by: Brendan 26/11/2015
Rating:
I settled on Astra blades after trying all the blades in my razor sampler pack. They provide a smooth, forgiving shave, and unlike Derbys, are sharp enough to cut through two or even three days growth if I've had a especially lazy weekend.
Sharp but Smooth Review by: Rha 17/08/2015
Rating:
Really like these blades, was using BIC Chrome also but these are a touch sharper and smoother. Have tried Feather also but find them to sharp and not at all forgiving.
Great value and performance Review by: Chris 4/01/2015
Rating:
I bought the Astra Superiors after trying a range of blades in the Starter Pack. Once I'd settled into a proper shaving routine, these really stood out as the best of the bunch. I can get six good smooth shaves out of each blade using a double pass, although I don't do the top lip or chin. Highly recommended.
Easy on the face and hip-pocket Review by: Ben 1/12/2014
Rating:
I first utilised these Russian gems during my initial trial period. Alas, I had a lather like peeling paint - so the shave was less than pleasurable. As I exited my shave den, I pondered my future in the DE game. I was suffering from a Darth Maul-like rash and noteworthy blood loss.
I revisted these blades when I conquered the lather business. Using the Italian Cella, I discovered the performance of this soap was akin to the great Roman Gladiator Russell Crowe at the height of his powers. The Astra's swept across my skin like a ballroom dancer across freshly polished french floorboards. At the current price, you can't go wrong.
For me, these blades work the best Review by: wyckerman 5/08/2014
Rating:
After working my way through a sampler pack, I found that these blades paired with a Webber razor head give me the best shave I have ever had. I get minimal to no irritation after two or three passes, even on my usually troublesome neck. As always, your experience may differ, but for me these blades, combined with a stick of Arko shaving soap and some alum afterwards provide me with the best shave.
Clean shave Review by: Andrey 3/06/2014
Rating:
Shaves super clean and super smooth. Love it!
A smooth blade Review by: Peter 3/05/2014
Rating:
After trying many blades (including all from the men's biz sample pack, + several others) these worked best for me in a murker 1904.

I get two SMOOTH shaves from a single Astra blade (can stretch it to 3, or even 4, however that's pushing it.) I find that for me after two x three pass shaves they get a little dull. Attempting to go against the grain with a blunt blade can be nasty!

And at 20c a blade, they're decent value too.
Sharp and smooth Review by: Philip 4/04/2014
Rating:
I have my Merkur 34c razor which I have used for three weeks. So far have tried three blades (Astra, Feather and Merkur) and the Astra provides the smoothest, close shave with no irritation. I found the feather blade very sharp which resulted in considerable razor burn.
These Astra blades provide great performance and value.
Smooth Review by: Nudge 18/03/2014
Rating:
After receiving the 5 x 5 sample pack with my Merkur 38C I settled on the Astras (and Feathers) for everyday shaving. They're smoother than the Feathers and a bit more forgiving also. I'd average 3 shaves with the Astras, so at 22 cents for each one it's also a relative bargain.
Nice Blades!! Great Quality and Value Review by: Anthony 28/12/2013
Rating:
These blades are in my top 10 as being one of the best to use.

I like them only a bit more than the Astra Stainless, however, they provide a nice irritation free shave (for me anyway).

At the current price these are an absolute steal! I also find that these last me 3 - 4 shaves off the same blade which is fantastic value for money!

If you're on the fence about these, give them a shot, you won't be disappointed!
Easily the best value, smoothest blade I have tried. Review by: Angus 11/11/2013
Rating:
After trying out all the blades included in the sampler I kept notes on what I did or did not like and these blades came out with an easy 5 stars. I found them much smoother and more forgiving than all the others.
Sensational! Review by: Kon 18/09/2013
Rating:
Im blown away by the quality of these blades and their price is as cheap as chips.
Not only are they super sharp but they also give a consistantly smooth shave and are rather forgiving. To date I have not been dissapointed.
Perfect Review by: Peanutoz 4/09/2013

Great blade, great price and gives a result thats as smooth as a velvet codpiece!
End of the Journey Review by: Will 11/06/2013
Rating:
After trying basically most of the blades you can find in Oz, I was a little wary of buying 100 without trying them, but glad I did. Not as vicious as a Feather (which is my favourite up until now) and seems sharper than almost anything else. They hold the edge well too, which I think is the most important bit.
Try all brands Review by: Josh 15/05/2013
Rating:
Make sure you try the sample pack to find a blade that works with your setup and face.
A lot people love these blades they are just a little more forgiving for the softer skin than the feathers.
Great blades at a great price Review by: David 9/01/2013
Rating:
A very nice shave with these blades. And the bulk pack will keep me going for a while.
Great quality leaving a smooth finish Review by: Martyn 22/07/2012
Rating:
A great quality blade without the expensive price tag. Blades are seperately packaged, and last many shaves.

A great choice for a reliable blade.
Perfect balance of Sharp and Smooth Review by: Rick 18/06/2012
Rating:
My best DE shave was experienced when I chose an Astra from a sampler pack. The Astra strikes a perfect balance of sharp and smooth. It lasts for about 5 shaves even with a course beard like mine.
These blades perform better for me than Feathers (sharp but cut me easy). The other blade that comes very close is the Personna Reds.
Astra smooth Review by: Roger Mac 29/05/2012
Rating:
So much smoother than any other blade I have tried. No looking back - I'm sticking with Astra!
Great Review by: Chris 14/03/2012
Rating:
These are my favorites blades. Not as sharp as Feathers, but extremely forgiving and at half the price.
What else could you need? Review by: Shaun 23/02/2012
Rating:
Everyone is different, and different blades work differently in different razors. I have found that the Astra, like the Gillette Blue, provides a very good, clean, smooth, quick shave in ALL my double-edge razors, but... the Astra is cheaper! So why not stock up when you can? I like a change of blade now and again just to try things out, it's true, but I always come back to the good old Astra. Get some; you won't regret it!
Tried and true Review by: Gus 9/02/2012
Rating:
I used to purchase my DE blades from the local supermarket at a cost of around $10.00 for 10 Wilkinson Swords. Recently the same pack of blades has gone up in price to $13.00. I bought 100 Astra's for just under $20.00 thnking that I would most likely find the blades to be under par. These blades are excellent both in quality and price. I' m getting 3-4 good shaves out of each blade and could probably get more. These days I have a greater selection of blades in my kit and the Astra's are definitely one of my favourites.
Set for the next 10 years Review by: Andrew 6/12/2011
Rating:
I only shave twice a week, so I only change blades once a month. So a pack like this will last me for like 10 years which is awesome because these razors (along with a Merkur and a Tweezerman brush) have been a revelation.
Cant go wrong. Review by: Aidan 15/11/2011
Rating:
My favourite blade so far. These are the ones i pick up when im in a hurry. Plenty sharp, and forgiving. Cheap too! Doesn't terraform your neck like feathers do.
Astra SP, smooth and sharp! Review by: Nick 1/11/2011
Rating:
These are my favourite blade - I went through a 100 pack after trying them in a sampler. They're sharp, forgiving and smooth to use (no tugging). They also have good durability and dull gradually so you won't get any nasty surprises mid shave. I'm currently re-trying different blades (again) but the Astras are the ones to beat. The price is unbelievably good.
One of the better blades Review by: JB 12/10/2011
Rating:
Not as sharp as a Feather, but more versatile and easier to use. They tend to last longer too. Generally good quality, but every once in a while you get a rougher blade. Overall a good blade.
Better than Feathers! Review by: Joseph 8/03/2011
Rating:
These blades have an unusual "smoothness" to them. They won't leave your face irritated and last at least twice as long as Feathers. While not quite as sharp as the Feathers, definately sharp enough to get an amazingly close shave. Highly recommend these.
My Personal Favourites Review by: Roger 8/03/2011
Rating:
When it comes to blades, you have to try quite a few. Luckily, they're cheap. I've tried most here, but Astra are my favorites. I find them somewhere between a Feather and Personna for sharpness, but they have a smoothness all their own. After having tried many good blades that are just as usuable, the level of comfort these offered was a nice surprise.
