Unreal. I've been DE shaving since I'm 14 and I never heard of Minoras!

My go-to blades are the Astra Greens but I also like the. Russian Rapiras. Even the Derbys are pretty decent.

The Minro brand has a long history here in South Africa. In fact, most people call DE razor blades 'Minora blades' :) They have since been bought off by Gillette. Still decent blades, though there was a patch where there were some counterfeits on the market.

They are very nice blades and my one of my favourites along with the Astra SPs.

There is even a saying here in SA if someone says something witty that they are as sharp as a Minora blade.
