Best Prices on Gillettee razor blades


Recommended Posts

I changed to the Feather safety razor blades, they are as cheap as chips. ฿650 for 100 on Lazada.

I paid 500bht for 1,000 Dorco blades from China, (AliExpress) 2 years back.

Came with a free 10 blade pack, I haven't even opened the 1,000 pack yet.

Great blades, last forever, probably longer than I have left.

Sorry can't help except warn that buying on ebay or the like can result in really bad copies.  When I could still shave without nicking myself chose to use the below BIC from Lotus.  They cut as good, lasted as long and are much cheaper.

Quite expensive, here for half the price: https://shopee.co.th/product/72002886/2842983898

 

I also recommend getting a safety razor, not only way cheaper but also better than this Gillette <deleted>.

Get something like this to try it, even this one will be better than a Gillette. If you like it, get a high quality one later: https://shopee.co.th/🔥พร้อมส่ง🔥มีดโกน-ตราขนนก-ด้ามมีดโกน-ตราขนนก-Feather-No.S1-i.126395337.2126473888

The first few times until you learn to pull really straight you will probably cut yourself a bit, but not a big deal.

 

While you are already at it, replace the foam out of the bottle with shaving soap or cream and a shaving brush, that's again way cheaper and better.

I shave usually every 2 days. One Fusion blade lasts me 2 months if I strop the blade on my belly after each shave.

Use shaving cream and a boar bristle brush for 30 years.

Safety razor ??? How 18th century

Those are ฿315 on Lazada, I was always under the impression that the yellow packaged Feather blades were the creme de la creme of the safety razor blade makes, but there again, what do I know Jack.

Just different packaging, the blades are the same, see for example: https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/threads/the-yellow-feather-black-feather-controversy-solved.496925/

The Gillette Fusion Power blades are 200+ baht each- with care they'll last a while, but they're crazy expensive.  There are 8-packs (local markets only have two and four packs) on Lazada for ~1000bt, but I'm not convinced they're genuine- anyone ever try them?

I am finding that Mach3s are about the same price as in the US. Usually I bring enough but got caught short this year because of travel restrictions. 

A visit to Tesco got me a pack with each cartridge coming in at 73 baht each. That's what I would pay at a place like Walmart if I buy bigger packs.  Smaller packs will be more. 

Never buy online.  Too many fakes around, especially the Chinese horde on Amazon.

If you look hard can find these at some 20 bt shops...as my dad gave me his old razor thats uses these...If I ever shaved, that is... 🙂

 

Also If kept in alcohol it will keep the blades fresh n sharp, after use it seems..

That is where Philips OneBlade excels.  Very good for removing hair without pulling and safe to use just about anywhere - just not quite as close as a good electric shaver (but better than most Chinese types and cuts long hair much better) and far from a blade shave.  Anyone that can use a dual edge blade more power to ye.  I gave them up when twin blades became available and on the few times that have had to use them since looked as if I needed transfusions.
