I have only tried a LORD Racer blade and it was ok. Was wondering if the Platinums are "any count" ?

I enjoy using the Lord Platinum. Personally I find that they provide comfortable shave.Overall I find the sharpness to be just right.

I also think the Platinums are solid performers. Definitely worth a try IMO.

My testing of several Lord Blades is contained here. There is a matrix to show how they worked for me against other blades.

http://shavenook.com/thread-de-blade-challenge-ii

Lord Platinum, Lord Super Stainless, Lord Super Chrome, Asco Super Stainless, Big Ben blades were tested.

The Big Ben blade became my primary razor testing blade (not my favorite blade) because it is not the sharpest blade but is a smooth blade which is a help when testing an unfamiliar razor.

Good fortune in your search.

The Lord Platinum is a solid blade that has given me good results in all my razors. I have some Shark Super Chromes that I'll be trying soon.

The platinum was a decent performer in my testing, but not good enough to make the cut as a blade that I'd buy.

I got a pack of Lord blades with a RR Little Bastone I bought last month. I changed blades halfway through my first shave and tossed the rest in the trash.

I use these ones and have good results with them. Normally they last 3/4 shaves, but since I can buy them for 0,89€ a pack of 10, they're not expensive in the end.

I, too, like the Lord Platinum blades. They are a very good all-around performer for me. I am currently using a Lord Super Chrome and while it is a decent blade, I prefer the Platinum.

Of the Lord blades, the Platinums are the best IMO. I do have a ton of them but they seldom make it into my shaving rotation. That said they are a very nice blade. I just have too many freaking razor blades. Biggrin

Good blades.

Platinums, Super Chrome, Super Stainless all seemed the same to me, I suspect that only the packaging is different.

Good prices can be found on all three.

I find them to be very similar to the Shark SC/SS, which are products of the same company.

Lords are currently cheaper than Sharks, however.

I've tried some Asco Super Stainless in the orange box recently and found them to a very smooth, moderately sharp blade.

As always there seems to be magical razor/blade pairings. The orange Asco's work well in any razor, but in the Merkur HD, they are shaving perfection. Same thing with Shark Stainless's, a moderately sharp blade, put it in a Fatboy set at 7 and it's fantastic.

I find the Lord Plats to be just a notch under the Astras in my 'like' list.

Platinum and Super Stainless work well for me (as do a number of other blades).

Another pitch for the Lord Platinum Class blades. I find them to be excellent performers at a very reasonable price.

I've tried most of the Lord offerings and find them to be quality blades. The Lord Platinums and Sharks were my preferred blades until I stumbled across Gillettes which I now use simply because they last forever (8-15 shaves for me).

Lords tend to get dumped on because they are considered "cheap" and in the wet shaving world, if it ain't expensive, it ain't good. I would suggest checking out Gary's Lord selection at http://www.shoeboxshaveshop.com and try the Lords blades for yourself. He carries most of them and his prices are nice. See for yourself if one of those brands doesn't match up with your face and your razor and save yourself a lot of money in the process.

Lord has some great blades at excellent prices. I am partial to the Platinums, but many of their other blades are good too. You can get 100 Lord Platinums or 100 Lord Super Chromes from West Coast Shaving for $10 (about $12.50 with shipping) or 100 Lord Cools from Connaught Shaving for $9.75 (including shipping) or 100 Asco Orange or Red, also from Connaught Shaving, for $11.25 (including shipping).

The Racer is my favorite offering from Lord, with the Shark SS or ASCO tied for second. Of course, like many who hang out around shaving fora, I need more blades like I need another hole in the head! But then again, it's not really a matter of need, is it? Lol!
