Gillette Silver Blue

Joe gave me one of these to try out. I was a little reluctant after my 7 OClock experience, but in the spirit of the scientific method I figured I would give it a fair shot on the roster. I'm glad that I did.

I found the Silver Blue to be a very mild shaver. Not so much so that I have to make extra passes, but it certainly is forgiving, and might be a really good beginner blade.

I've got about three or four shaves with this blade so far, and it's still comfortable and close.

Like the Astras, these are made in Russia. The quality of the steel is good, but the price is a bit high end.
I'm not sure that they would be in my regular line up, but I wouldn't pass them up if I found a good deal.


  1. Tom,

    Glad to hear you liked the Silver Blue blade. They are definitely in my top five favorite blades I have tried so far. It is a higher priced blade that is also a bit difficult to find. When I was purchasing some stuff from Italian barber I saw them and had not seen them in any other online shave shop, so figured I would pick up a box and get the most bang for my buck with my shipping costs. My next purchase from Italian barber I may treat myself to another box.

    1. Yeah, I noticed that too. Its a bit pricey, but it's a nice shaver so I figure it will be my go to mild blade.
