As I experimented with blades, the Viking’s Sword moved to the top tier for me, just barely below the Personna Med Prep and Gillette Silver Blue. They are an Israeli Personna Super Stainless blade. You can get 100 for $16.20 shipped or 20 for $5.90 shipped. I just finished 5 excellent shaves with one in my Slim set on “6”. All 5 shaves were smooth, close, and nick free. I used a soap, a croap, 2 creams, and a stick. As always, YMMV.

I just finished my 6th shave with an Israeli Personna Viking’s Sword with my Gillette Slim set on “8” this time. All 6 shaves have been very close, smooth, and nick free.

+1 to this! Liorfe is an excellent seller! I bought (too many) Vikings, Crystals and Q-Balls. Biggrin

Hi guys,

I'm from Israel, I'm not a reseller but if you'd like and there's enough people interested, I can get them to you cheaper (like 15%) than this seller. I use these razors too they are great(well at least until my DE razor died yesterday).

Hey Bob, shaved with the Viking yesterday morning. What a blade it is. Smooth, comfortable and sharp. Just a great combo of all the things I like in a good blade. Thanks for the sample.

I may just try these out now. I've been worried about getting the Russian blades I usually use lately.

I received my Viking blades from Israel. After trying two of them, I can summarize as follows for my shaving conditions:

Blade is typical Persona- sharp but not that smooth
First shave was OK but not as comfortable as others.
Second shaves didn't last on either blade and was very rough. Only got barely two shaves-Most blades give me 3 shaves, Polsilver 4-5 shaves. Thought the Persona red was a better blade, smoother and lasted longer.

My rating for my shaving conditions would be in order top to bottom:

Polsilver
Gillette Yellow
GSB
Permasharp
Persona Red
Viking

Price is pretty decent however, will probably stick to my top 4.
