My recent acquisition of the new Razorock Wunderbar has me thinking about the glue dots on some DE blades for the first time, as they have never concerned me before.  For those who don't know, Razorock recommends using blades with no glue dots as the machining tolerances on the razor head are rather fine.

Yes, I know I can carefully use an old blade to remove dots on a new blade, but I doubt I will want to do that often.

Does anyone know of an existing list of DE blades which do not contain glue dots?

If not, perhaps we could start one here for future reference?

The Gillette-Wilkenson Sword blades do not have glue dots either.

As well as the Personna Lab Blue blades as well.

Just checked some of the blades I have. There might be more (I’ll post again if I find any), but none of these had the glue:

• Dorco Prime Platinum
• Mühle (“Rasurkultur”)
• Personna Med Prep
• Rapira Super Stainless

For some time now, I have made an effort to only buy blades that don’t have the glue. The glue is completely unnecessary — if so many blade brands can do without it, so can the rest.

Yes, you can of course clean it off yourself, but you will then be expending that time and effort (an risking cuts), when you could be enjoying your shave.

Blades in metal dispensers.

Vintage ones like Gillette Spoilers and Schick Plus Platinum.

I have a stash of different blades and will sort through a bit, looking for others that don't have wax spots. If I find any not mentioned will report back.

Don't think it's GLUE It's WAX. Hot water will clean em off.

That is true, wax — not glue. (See what I did there?) Nevertheless, it’s a bit of a nuisance, and in my mind, blades that don’t have the wax spots immediately have an edge (pun intended) over the ones that do. (Although — Feather … great blades, wax included.)
