The Astra 'Blue' Superior stainless steel double edge razors blades are manufactured in Czechia for Gillette, known for their exceptional smoothness, laser sharpness and longevity, and closeness of shave. Capable, targeted, efficient, and as mysterious and as tense as the Cold War itself – a story shrouded in mystery and buried deep behind the Iron Curtain. Astra is one of the most sought-after, cold-war era European double edge razor blade brands.
Originally hailing from the Czech Republic, little is known about Astra's origins aside from the fact they were the largest producer of double edge blades in the former eastern bloc state until 1996 when Gillette acquired them and moved production to Russia. Today, they're known for their hardy, platinum-cased razor blades that deliver a shave as smooth vodka served in a block of ice.
One of the most favored razors blade by wet shaving enthusiasts in terms of affordability, swiftness, and closeness. Both wet shavers and barbers rave about the shaveability, closeness, and baby butt smooth shave this blade offers. The Astra blue stainless steel razors are in no way a mild blade, manufactured to high-quality tolerances and built for efficiency and durability, and are compatible with all standard double edge safety razors.

Rediscovering wet shaving and loving Grown Man Shave products
This was my 3rd purchase at Grown Man Shave. I needed to restock on the Cluster Fig soap and get more of the Astra blades. These Astra blades are more forgiving than the blades I was using before. Before, I was cutting myself a lot. But with the Astras, I feel like I actually know what I am doing -- I can shave confidently without cutting myself.
I'm so happy to read this review. I'm glad we could help you rediscover wet shaving. Everyone responds to every blade differently. You just have to experiment to what works for you. Feather used to cut me something awful until I tried them in an Edwin Jagger 3ONE6 and they are wonderful. Cluster Fig is my absolute favorite soap. Can't wait for the next release!
My favorite blades
Since I started DE shaving about 6 years ago, I tried many, many blades with of different brands. This became my favorite. These Astra blades are very sharp, but a notch less than the feather blades, for me this is a good thing.
