How is Gillette Platinum blade compared to Silver Blue
As they have similar looking packaging this is often asked; how do Gillette platinum perform compared to Gillette Silver Blue ‘s. They are in fact very similar in their performance. Both are smooth and have equal longevity giving on average of 4-6 good shaves. But based on our experience, the Silver blues ‘feel’ just a hint sharper. Being sharper is not however always ‘better’ and it is overall efficiency and comfort that you should be after.
