Found a pair of ZAZA Super Stainless in my sample-bag, and are using them this week. So I'm curious; have anyone else tried them? There is little-to-nothing about them on the web, apart from being a Turkish brand.

Amusing sidenote: The wrapper says "Super Stainless" - the blade itself says "Supreme Stainless"...

Never heard of that brand before. What is your initial impression of the blade?

First shave? They are not the sharpest, nor the smoothest blades I've tried... but far from dull and ragged. It helps that I'm using two razors I'm very well acquainted with, so I don't have to worry about technique.

Only place I can find them is at bestshave.net - which is where I got the sampler pack from - but only in boxes of one hundred and not in stock right now.

I've never tried them, but I have seen them for sale on bestshave.net, a Turkish vendor.

They are O.K. but not worth keeping in my rotation.

ZAZA DE razor production was discontinued. I think 30 years old blades. It is not sharp and comfortable. Probably worse than Sharks, Derbys and Dorcos.

I have used them, and got a good handful of shaves out of them. I do not notice much difference among blades, but to that marginal extent I would put them with Derby or Shark. Like with Shark, I got pulled by the packaging and found a decent shave.

My nephew somehow acquired a package. I was initially repelled by the label; hearing Al Pacino saying 'Joey ZaZa is a putz" and even worse my two enocunters with the Gabor sister of that name; once in High School driving a XK 140 past her house with the exaust removed ( Za Za in a pink robe dropping Hungarian Fbombs for waking her and decades later at a horse show telling off Prince Freddy Von Arnholt and receiving a second
delivery of hungarian Fbombs.
HOWEVER, the Turks are renowned for lovely brasswork and I did try it.  It's a serviceable blade; no Polsilver but a lot better than a BOLZANO pr MERKUR by far.

I tried The zaza stainless and in an aggressive razor Igut a good shave but the blade was dull.I also tried the zaza platinum..now that was a horrible blade that wouldn't  work in any razor I had.That was the worst razor I've  ever used.What a difference from the stainless that was OK just a bit dull with no irritation.
