I keep checking back at WCS and they are out, RBAM seem to be out as well. I realize these are popular blades but should I be worried? It seems no one can keep them in stock.

WCS is only out-of-stock on the non-UK packaged Reds. The UK package (Personna Platinum Chrome) and red package are exactly the same blades, except the UK version comes in a 10 blade plastic dispenser with disposal slot (and generally has a lower price!).

Additionally, many other vendors such as Connaught and shaving.ie, stock the UK packaged Reds.

Edit: RBAM appears to have the regular red packaged Personnas in-stock and available on its Ebay page.

I tried the UK Reds and did not find them and the US ones to be the same. Maybe I had a bad batch but they were terrible IMO.

There are no current Reds made in the U.S.A., including the ones on WCS. All of them are made in Israel. The only difference is the packaging.

If you wish to purchase the red cardboard pack, then I think the RBAM Ebay listing above is your best option. If there is a price differential, I would email RBAM. I'm sure they will take care of you.

I am aware of that. What was meant was the Packaging. Like I said maybe I got some bum blades so I just ordered another pack to give them a second chance. I just hope they work this time, because that would mean more money saved. If not I am only out $2 instead of $12.

I've had both versions from WCS.

Same blade, no problem with either version.
