I have been using Astra SP blades for a few years and they have always come in packs of 5 with each blade wrapped in white paper that had the Astra name on it. Today I opened a pack that had blades wrapped in a semi-clear wax paper. I haven't ever seen this before. I actually picked up most of a box of Astra blades in a trade and this was from that batch.

Has anyone else seen this before?

Do you have a pic? I have only seen them in the semi-clear paper.
However, I have only used them when I first started shaving almost 2 years ago, but I have some now that I got from a friend and they also have the semi-clear wrapper.

I'm not sure which one is newer either but they shave exactly the same.

Thanks for the pic and I had never see the bottom one before. I had thought they all came in the white/green wrapper with the semi-clear one inside along with the blade.
Good to know. Smile

Thanks for the update dcc! At first I was worried that they weren't genuine blades, but they seem too cheap to make counterfeit versions. It's becoming so common these days that I'm naturally suspicious!

I believe they are wax spots, not glue.
