Now that I have your attention, are you ready and braced?

What is this new Gillette DE blade?

Is it a reissue of the Spoiler or the Swede?

No.

It's none of those.

It's even better.

Are you ready? (need to ask again)

It is the Gillette WINNER.

And who is the random guy looking delighted with his thumb up toasting your impending BBS/DFS? It would be the ex cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.



I myself could care one bit if I opened the blade package and it had a Derby Extra as it would still be my favourite blade of all time as with a graphic as delightful as this not much more is needed.

A few more pictures

The blade itself


One of the back, shows it made in May so a new release and what kind of price it is. It's around the same as the Indian GWS, so I expect it might be similar in quality.

I honestly think "saloon" is an Indian corruption of the word salon. I thought "saloon" packs were 200 blades? Oh well. Do you have these yet, Donnie? if so, how do they shave? Inquiring minds want to know.

'Indian English' is a bit of a different language to regular 'English', some words and phrases for the outsider can be a little confusing.

My blades are yet to arrive in the UK, I imagine they'll take a while longer.

Well, have you used one yet? :unsure:
My short and brief answer is no. ..At the moment i'm revisiting DE blades i've neglected & haven't giving much attention to for ages..I assume the winner blade won't be far behind Indian Gillette-Wilkinson saloon pack,'hopefully' the only difference is the Platinum coating. I've also tired the 365 gillette, which i found to my liking, very sharp.DE blade are very subjective..YMMV as they say.
