    To be brief, they mean nothing.

    They are used for quality control at the factory. In our world they are meaningless, they benefit us in no manner whatsoever.

    If you get vintage Gillette DE blades, they may indicate the year they were made, using the same date codes as their old DE razors. For example, L 3 could be 3rd quarter of 1966. If they are more modern blades, then probably nothing.

    They're used for mind control. By having you constantly wonder about what the numbers mean, the companies manage to have you keep DE razor blades in mind at all times

    In reality, they don't mean a thing (to us, anyway).
