LASER blades

Post by Shave4Fun » Wed Jan 04, 2012 6:03 am

Guys,

Someone sent some Laser blades to me in a trade and I do not recall who. These give a pretty good shave for me. Where can they be purchased?

Thanks,

Roger

Glad they worked for you Roger, the ones I tried were not so good. Laser markets about four different categories of blades as I recall, Super Platinum, Stainless, Super Stainless and Super Stainless Extra. Perhaps you received one of the better grades.

I expect you could order some through our UK vendors but be careful to order exactly the same as the ones you have. Does your box say where they were made?
Regards,
Squire

Squire,

I had two in wrappers only and I tossed the last wrapper; it was blue. The blade is stamped "Super Platinum."

This really surprises me as Laser Super Platinum get slated all the time of UK-based shaving forums.

The blades cost 49p ($0.30?) in Wilko's in UK and most users are convinced they are made of cardboard and painted silver.

If you can somehow find a picture, and they turn out to be the UK ones I'll happily send you a pack.

I picked a few packs up in Cyprus a couple of years ago.

Awful. I binned them.
