    Default Blade Source?

    Just for the record, I still don't use DE's lol. I bought a Lady Gillette for my fiancÚ and now I need to find blades! What is the cheapest source for good blades? Also, what kind of blades should I go for? Keep in mind this is for leg shaving, not face. Thanks!

    PM me your address - I'll send you a pack of Derby's for her to try (nice mild blade).

    Also, most drugstores carry at least one brand of DE blades.

    cheers,

    I bought a big pack of Derby's for my wife's lady gillette. They were cheaper than the Walmart personna blades, even with shipping. I got em from Amazon

    Hi Alex,
    Awwwwww, you're a sweet man to get your significant other involved in your 'hobby'. You already have two good sources from other members posts. I might also include Welcome To Connaught Shaving
    I've never bought from them, but I heard good things about the service. The prices are pretty darn good, and he carries MWF in the nice bowl. Also, I believe he's based in the UK.
    Of the three sites, I'd probably go with the sampler West Coast offers, called the 'Choice', and costs $13.75. There's a good assortment of sharp blades mixed with milder ones, and all those blades have a strong following. I'd also suggest ordering a pack of Iridium Super blades along with whatever you end up with. Sharp, but forgiving, with many good reviews about em.
    Hope that helps,
    Martin

    Oh.......if you order a sampler with Dorco blades, make sure you'll be getting the platinum 301, and not the regular 300 model. Yes, there IS a difference from what I've read.

    And last time I looked, Walgreen's (at some sites anyway) carried two house brands, Walgreen's Stainless Steel and ... the other kind. Of course I've forgotten the name. Platinum Chrome, perhaps? Very good blades, I found. I noticed they are marked "Made in USA"--which may well mean, alas, that they are being phased out.
