I purchased the 100 blade pack & razor bank along with the Parker 90R butterfly safety razor (check my separate review of the razor). However, every Parker DE safety razor ships with a complimentary 5 pack of Parker platinum DE blades. And since they're the same, this is what I'm reviewing here. I'm a newbie to safety razor shaving and its fairly evident that choice of blade is critical to the quality of shave and subsequently to the shaving experience as well. This is why I opted for platinum coated blades to ensure a smooth shave and minimize the possibility of a harsh shaving experience. Since I chose a Parker safety razor it seemed natural that their proprietary blades would be a suitable choice to pair it with and they didn't disappoint me. This deal is a bargain as I was considering another premium name brand of platinum coated DE blades but okay, I am a sucker for a deal and I didn't go wrong. I havent tried the razor bank yet as today was my 1st experience using my new safety razor and Ive gathered that each blade is good for maybe 5 shaves or so. But Parker is a known name in shaving and safety razors & banks are a fairly simple & easy to use design. I can say that the black color makes it look elegant and stylish even. So I am satisfied with my choice and I am sure they will serve me well for a long time to come.
