Are Super Max blades part of the Lord blade family?

How many different blades are under the Super Max label?

I'm aware of Platinum and Sunrise. Enjoy using both.

No, they're not, as far as I know, part of Lord, an Egyptian company. Super-Max is Indian.

There's also the Super Platinum and Super Stainless

The Blue Diamond and Platinum are excellent blades for me. The Super Platinum tugs a little too much for my liking, but it's not terrible.

Here is one more who love Blue Diamond! One of the best, if not the best of all the blades i have. It couldnt be that many different sorts they make i think. So its probably the Titatium under a different name and package but for less money.

Super max is not a Lord brand, they are made in India. My pick of the bunch is the Platinum line which are very good blades.

I did a review of these over on SMF which is in my sticky in the Safety Razors and Blades forum.

Having used the Supermax Sunrise blades in my R41 all I can say is ouch! I dreaded using my alum block after.

I thought Feathers were sharp till I had my experience with the Sunrise blades.
I might try them again in my DE89 to use them up.

Vidyut Metals of India makes SuperMax, Platinum, Sunrise, Blue Diamond, and Zorrik blades among other brands and OEM as well, I'd guess. The company claims to be the largest manufacturer of DE blades on earth. They're all a pretty good value. Smile

I agree completely, they are great blades. Often blades that work well in one razor won't work so well in another. The Super Platinums seem to work well in any razor.

This post on The Shaving Room states that the Platinum blades are only mid-range and the Sunrise Super Stainless and Tiger Super Platinum are the premium blades. Maybe the Super Platinums are one of these blades in disguise?

The Super-Max Product Manager mentioned at the link could be a good candidate for one of The Shave Nook interviews.

I've tried the Platinums and Stainless and they both worked well for me. I liked them better than the Lord blades.
