Wilkinson Sword DE Razor Blades (5 Pack) are a high-quality razor blade manufactured in Solingen, Germany. Solingen is the manufacturing centre for high quality, fine steel products. The blades are sold in packs of five.
All DE razor blades are a standardised size and shape and will therefore fit any double edge safety razor you own. Razor blade preference is very personal to each invidual and a period of trial and error usually helps to determine which band is best suited to your skin.
They are described as being one of the sharper options in the industry, making them suitable for all hair types, including hair that is particularly thick or coarse. They are known to be long-lasting, retaining their sharpness for several shaves.
The manufacturers are holders of two Royal warrants, indicating the high standards of the products they produce. The brand dates back to 1772, when the founder began manufacturing swords in London. They moved into the razor industry in 1962 with their popular blade offering.
All razor blades go through an extensive manufacturing process, starting off as long strips of stainless steel that go through several processes in order to create the fine, sharp blades that are easy and enjoyable to shave with. Once crafted, all blades go through strict quality control tests to ensure they are ideal for consumer use.
Wilkinson Sword blades are crafted using a triple coating process, including chromium for corrosion resistance, PTFE for less irritation, and ceramic for added durability.
Replace blades regularly to allow them to continue performing well, ensuring they are changed before they start to drag across the skin. How long you find a blade to last is dependent on personal preference and how the blades are stored. Some may find the need to change blades less often than others, but typically blades that are replaced after two to three shaves provide a closer shave and have less chance of causing injury, such as skin irritation and razor burn.
The blades are packaged in a small plastic container to protect them during transit. The container features a pouch where used blades can be placed to be disposed of in future. Alternatively, the used blades can be safely recycled in a blade disposal tin or a makeshift tin of your preference.
Each blade is wrapped in waxed paper to avoid any accidental injury when taking them out of the box.
Take care when handling, understandably they are very sharp!
