I'm trying some random blades and loaded up this one today. Does anyone know what it is?

That patent number was granted to Irwin Fischbein, who was with the Gillette Company.

I believe that is an Israeli Personna-like blade. I believe that the patent number on the blade is an Israeli patent number.

It's a Gillette. I could tell that from the shape of the arrow on it but I looked up the patent number as well. Assigned in 1963 but no info as to which exact blade.

I do not think it is a Gillette. Based on the information I have received it is most likely from the Israeli factory that produces Personna blades. The closest visual match I have seen is a Viking's Sword blade.

Here are some images that convinced me this is an Israeli blade. The first three are Viking's Sword blades and the last is a Crystal. Notice the patent number on these non-Gillette blades:

Maybe it's not a Gillette, I can't be for sure but based on the patent number the information on file with the government states that it was issued to Gillette. Maybe they sold the process later to Personna? What are you basing your conclusion on? I don't know how to find out other than looking up the number.

a little more searching I find that not only did Gillette use the patent number on blades from Thins to Super Blues and others, but Wilkinson Sword used it as well. I believe it's a patent for a particular way to make a blade and evidently the rights to the process was sold or let to other companies, perhaps thru acquisition? I don't know.
