Changing The Razor Blade
Changing your razor blade in your safety razor is a simple task. You should be extremely careful when handling extremely sharp objects such as these Astra Razor Blades. Double Edge Safety Razors are either butterfly or three-piece razor. Fitting the razor is a case of either inserting the razor into the butterfly head, or between the two head pieces on a three piece razor.
Your first step is to remove the old razor blade you wish to replace and dispose of it safely. Next, remove the razor blade from its wax paper, and position it on the upper head piece. Next add the lower head piece and screw the razor back together.
These blades are the ones with the least sharpness that I have used so far, they are made in Egypt.
– I prefer my blades to be slightly sharper. While I can use the blades for up to a week, I feel a significant pull on my stubbles after day 3.
+ I received the 5 blades packaged in a small cardboard box (the picture here on manlystuff shows a plastic box, though).
+ Each blade comes individually wrapped in wax-paper.
+ The blades are not overly sharp, so there is little risk of cutting yourself accidentally.
+ After one week of usage the blade is still usable, although I feel a bit of a pull. – If I would use these blades more regularly I would exchange them after about 3, max. 4 uses.
Conclusion: While these blades do still give me a shave that is cleaner than with any system razor I do prefer my blades to be a bit sharper. – I like the exclusively paper-based packaging very much, though.
