I saw this on a well known e-commerce website.
Are these blades really the same?

Yes, as far as i am concerned and many others, also.
i have never been able to tell if there was any difference, but it doesn't mean that i like them.
Good luck.

They are the exact same blade. The black pack is a 5 pack and yellow a 10 pack.

They difference in coloured packaging I have been told is for different markets. They are the same blade no difference at all. One is 5 and is packaged as 10. They are great blades.

+1. Never have been able to get a decent shave with these blades, and I've never understood the cult like following for them singing the praises of the almighty Feather. To each their own, I guess! Lol!

I find them good for three to four shaves in a milder razor like a Tech, but they do tend to tear up the skin on my neck. I am also not a fan of the Super Iridium. Some folk love them.

I know this is a YMMV type question....but which blades do you like?

I get 2 shaves from a Feather DE with the 3rd shave not worth the risk. Surprisingly though, the Feather SE blades which are every bit as sharp give me 10 shaves. I'm guessing that it's because of the stiffness of the thicker SE blade and lack of flex.

Wow. I have gotten six great shaves from a Feather DE blade in my 1940's Gillette Tech. I didn't like the Feathers in my Parker 92R.

I am using the Polisilver for the first time this week and so far it has been great.

Yes, they are. I find they perform better with really hot water for some reason. It's more noticeable with Polsilvers that the other blades I mention, in my experience, anyway. Same prep, same angles, etc. Go figure. A metallurgist may be able to offer some insights. Come to think of it, wouldn't it be great if there were a metallurgist here in the Nook? All that information re blades, molecular alignment, plating, coating, etc.
