    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.

        I used these blades instead of the ones that came with the headblade shaver that has 2 wheels. One of the prongs that hold the blade broke after a couple months, now I am stuck with 2 extra packs of these blades and you cannot buy the razor that was made for these blades. Maybe drugstore.com will take the blades back?? I am not buying another headblade shaver thing as the expensive fusion razor I have works better for shaving my head. I just hate paying over $3.00 for a blade.

                Because these blades fit a very old razor, they aren't sold in local stores. Glad to locate them online, so that I don't have to pitch a good razor.

                Delivery was fast.

                        The original ATRA blades have been around almost as along as I began shaving (30+ yrs) and the product is as good today as the first day it was introduced yet for some reason it is virtually impossible to find at any of the major drug store chains or the other big retailers that selll shaving blades. The good news is that thanks to Drugstore.com not only is the product a snap to purchase but the price is always lower then stores I have purchased this product from in the past(when I could even find it) and when you factor in the periodic discounts [...]. I buy alot of items from drugstore.com-you should to!

                        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.
