Details

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!



Customer Reviews


probably cheaper than when I bought them in the 1960s

the warning not to touch the blade because of the PTFE coating, and since then have always used the wrapping on all blades. Used these and was perfectly happy until in the last few years they became difficult to obtain, so I moved to German blades.

Don't bother with anything else!

Really good value (bought the 20 pack deal) razors don't tug until the 5th or 6th shave, & I tend to shave every other day. I use nothing but these razors as they give a very close, nick free shave.

Outperforms the other leading brands by far. My stubble is coarse, and I have been getting 2-3 shaves from other leading brands. Wilkinson Sword have outperformed these other brands by far. Excellent quality and my aim is to stick with these from now on.
Fantastic quality and longevity. I have been using the feather blades for some time. No longer!! I can honestly say that these out perform the other leading brands. My stubble is coarse and I would blunt a blade after 2-3 shaves, and would start feeling drag. I can get double from these. Fantastic blades.

Great blades
These blades are good quality and consistent. They feel premium from the moment you unpack them. They are sharp (but not too sharp) and extremely smooth. I have sensitive skin and never get any razor burn with these. I find them to be less sharp than Astra SPs (which is a positive) and so much smoother. To put it into perspective I would be comfortable using these in an aggressive razor. After testing out many blades, Feather, Astra SP Green. Derby, Derby Premium, Voskhod, Permasharp, Shark to name a few, these are in my daily rotation (the other two being Feather and Astra SP Green). I highly recommend these for beginners and the experienced alike. I would even consider buying a full saloon pack of these!

Exactly As Shown
Having hunted for two weeks without finding a single W.S. blade, (the mantra was, 'You can't get'em!') I ordered a hundred to keep me going during the current difficulty. What I wasn't expecting was to beat the price I had previously had to pay for inferior, look-alike blades. For me W.S. are, and always have been, the best, and your company matched my grading.

Great place for wet shavers to get their shaving needs.
Buying from The English Shaving Company is really easy and convenient plus the choices & prices are very good too. Delivery was fast and inexpensive. I will continue to get more shaving products from The English Shaving Company. These are my main reason to buy from them. This blades is really a good option among many.
