Aaron is asked a question about the differences between stainless steel & platinum double edge razor blades
Jon Strutt, from the UK, asks:
“I’m thinking of buying some Astra double edge razor blades – what are the pro’s and cons of the Stainless Steel vs Platinum?”
Blades are the most subjective and personable part of shaving, so please take whatever advice given as a personal anecdote. For starters, the main difference is the material and coating treatments that the blades receive. As to how it feels on the face, for me the Platinum blades were smoother and sharper than the Stainless. However, that experience can vary from person to person. I encourage you to try both and see which feels the best to you.
