    Atras were a great invention when they first appeared in the 70s. I dropped my old single-blade razor and enjoyed the lighter weight and convenience of a double-blade disposable. Since then Gillette has gone through a gazillion generations of wet shave blades all doing pretty much the same thing and at much greater cost.

    My philosophy is "if ain't broke, don't fix it". Atra blades shave as well as anything out there at a fraction of the cost. I hope they never stop making them and DrugStore never stops selling them,

    This is ok

    This doesn't seem to do a very good job anymore. I don't know if maybe they've changed the way they make the blade but it doesn't seem to work as well.

        Comments about Gillette Atra Plus, Refill Cartridges, 10 ea:

        I'm a woman and have used Atra (same metal handle) for 30 years. I shave my legs and armpits in the shower. Atra is much better than the newer men's blades and in a different universe from the ridiculous blades they design for women. This one has an edge you can see and the blades last longer than the newer ones. (Which may be why it's so hard to find; less revenue...) My only complaint is that they stopped making the ones without the white strip. The strip wears out before the blades do.

          My husband has had this razor for more than 20 years, and he didn't want to change. We couldn't find the blades any more, so he was pleased that I could find a source to keep him supplied.

                I have been using Atra razer since bootcamp, 1979, The refill cartridges are getting very hard to find in local stores. It is nice I can find these cartridges at a reasonable price.

                        Gillette Atra Plus, Refill Cartridges

                         – The revolutionary and now classic Gillette two-blade shaving system, which immediately found world-wide popularity when it was introduced in the 1970s, is still available with Gillette Atra Plus, Refill Cartridges. With their innovative pivoting design and LubraStrip technology, these cartridges continue to provide a clean, smooth and comfortable shave. They are compatible with any Atra razor handle, ready to continue the Gillette tradition as a pioneer in shaving.

                        Multi-Blade Technology



                        The advantages of using the two-blade razor cartridge is based on the physics and engineering of shaving. The researchers at Gillette discovered that hair reacts to shaving in a way they called "hysteresis," a process in which the first blade grips and extends a hair shaft, holding it in place so that the following blade can cut through it further down. Together, the two blades also double the contact points with the skin, distributing the pressure of shaving across a wider area, reducing the drag of the cutting edge and causing fewer nicks and cuts. The pivoting head, introduced for the first time in the Atra system, helps the blades glide over the contours of the skin, reducing irritation and helping to avoid missed areas. Infused with soothing and healing aloe, the LubraStrip adds to the comfortable shave that everyone has come to expect from the Atra system.

                        A Tradition of Innovation



                        For more than a century, Gillette has been famous for its leadership in shaving technology. Their pioneering two-blade cartridge system, introduced in 1976, offered the greatest advance in shaving efficiency and comfort since company founder King C. Gillette patented the safety razor more than seven decades earlier. The Atra shaving cartridge became an instant favorite, providing a close, smooth and safe shave. Even today, the Gillette Atra Plus, Refill Cartridges continue to serve the fans of this pioneering shaving system.
