Question: Where are the date codes on Gillette razors?

Gillette Date Codes were used from January 1951 until 2001. They are found in the top left and right corners on the underside of razor guards, both 3 peice and 1 piece models. The letter represents the year, found on the chart below, and the number 1-4 correspond with the quarter of the year.

How often should you change your razor?

Ideally, you want to change your razor blade after 5-10 shaves. Gillette actually recommends 5-7 shaves, but this is just a general rule and it actually comes down more to the thickness and density of your facial hair.
