View Full Version : Need SE blades
I have a SE Gem all brass Micromatic Clog-Pruf shaver and need some blades for it. I live in a small city and none of the local outlets have them and I can't find them online. I am talking about coated blades used for shaving, not box cutting. Any one know about these and who has them?

Our Bloom store has Pal blued carbon steel blades in 5 packs. I like them. I noticed 10 packs of SE blades at Wegemans, too, but I forgot the brand. I only have 1 SE in the rotation and I seem to get 6 or 8 shaves out of the blades so 5 should last a while!

I'm not saying you didn't try, but did you check every place that has a pharmacy? How about the smallest grocery store in your area? As I have found out at the smallest store I have, there is one guy that does most of the ordering for the store. He decided that he wanted to get some SE and injector blades, so he did it through the store. They now carry Schick and Pal blades:biggrin: Small stores like this like to make there customers happy, it wouldn't hurt to see if your store has a person like this who knows what it would take to get some blades in for you.
There is always places like Walgreen's and Amazon online if you would rather just place on order with out the human contact:wink:

I found single edge blades at a store around my area called "Meijer's". When I lived in Alaska I did not see this chain, but it was close to the "Fred Meyer" stores in Alaska, and I think, the Pacific Northwest. The price was $4 for 10, as for the brand...they were generic store brand. I hope that might help.

Family Dollar stores carry PAL Supers.
I have a Fred Meyer, Freddies, in town and they have the Gem I believe, by American Safety Razor. These work, I use them, but they are an uncoated blade. I was hoping someone made a coated blade like my DE's.

My advice is to stick with the GEM Personna stainless steel blades from Walgreens. They're coated, and in my opinion, outshave any DE blade.
I'm using my DE razors (Progress, Aristocrat, Slim, Red Tip, etc.) less and less, and using my GEM Featherweight more and more.
The Featherweight is perfect for newbies. There is no learning curve and no blood. The shave is exceptional and the edge lasts roughly twice as long as a DE blade. ASR should start making these things again.
