    Default My new Favorite blade....One week with the same blade and STILL great shaves

    Like many "Newbies" I've read a ton of post...taking everthing in and realizing YMMV when it comes to razors, blades, soaps, etc.

    Several blades always came up as must have blades...(in no particular order):

    Personna labs/meds
    Israeli Personna's ( either reds or crystals)
    Gillette Yellows
    Feathers

    After trying all of these I received great shavings from each one and would recommend them to everyone...with my favorites being the labs and the IP

    I received a 5 pack of Supermax Super Platinum's as part of a purchase....

    I read a TERRIBLE review here on the Supermax Titanium ...but decided to try them anyways...after all...this was not the same blade...

    All I can say is WOW!!!

    Best shaves of my life...smooth, but yet sharp....I have a fairly coarse beard that grows fast..
    (I have a goatee...can shave clean today and have a nice goatee back in a week that looks well groomed and mature) and no tugging, pulling, nicks, weepers...just great BBS shaves.

    I've tried it in various razors...the NEW open comb, my fatboy, my slim, my aristocrat, my flair tip, my S.S, my tech and the EJ89...every razor....GREAT SHAVE

    For the last week I have been using the Supermax in my new open comb every day.....a week in and still great shaves.....how long can I go?? I don't know!! Part of me thinks I need to put in a new blade tomorrow just because its been a week...

    Guys....these blades are fairly inexpensive RB&M has them for like $10.50 for 100! to me its a no brainer!! if you don't like them....se;; them off in B/S/T or ebay...probably for more than you paid....run....don't walk to the nearest seller and grab some.....yeah there is alot of hype/myth, etc on many of the blades on this forum...but this is the real deal....VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    Nice post, thanks for writing it.

    Goes to prove once again, that reviews and opinions are valuable, but don't override YMMV!

    As I understand, Supermax manufactures a number of different blades, so if one is interested in the blade that Ken is using be sure to order the "Supermax Super Platinum".

    I believe that this is the blade Ken is referring to:

    Ken, quick question. Can you check the package and see it is marketed for UK market on the back of the package? And if you could post a photo of blade and it's wrapper?

    The four blades you are espousing are wonderful performing blades.

    I've used the blades in the past. I found them to be very close to my main blade, Red IPs. A member PMed me if I was interested in a trade, his SuperMax Platinums for my Super Platinums. I obliged.

    After trying just about everything, the Supermax Super Platinum is one of my favorite practical blades.

    Glad your a fan too!...wish more forum member's would try these...from the point of view of price point alone they are a great bargin...for those who dont want 100 blades...you can pick up 50 for like $6.....thats crazy! I just can't believe the great shaves I've received from this blade....today was day 8...but tomorrow I am putting in a new blade and use my fatboy....

    I received a pack of Supermax Super Platinum blades from RB&M with my last order when I stocked up on the nearly gone forever Gillette Silver Blues. I admit they were going to be waiting a bit for their turn to be used but thanks to you I am anxious to try one tomorrow.

    I just received my order from Razor Blades and More. I love these blades, the best I have tried so far, even better for my face than Red Personnas. I am anxious to try the SuperMax Titatanium, I have my Slim already loaded and set to 7!!!

    Hey Bob,

    Although I am not Ken, only his twin Arley, I think I can safely say for him "yes, those are the blades"

    Here is a picture of wrapper and package that I just took
