Although not as "almost great" like the RSS, the Vokshod ,after one use, appears to be a solid, all-around good performer. I like it, It has a solid spot in my number two box of current/in-production models.

I get good results from both the RSS and Voskhod.

I agree, and ordered 100 of them. They're super cheap.

I've had great success with them. Really good shave, I only go 4 shaves with any blade. I have quite a few in my rotation.

Have you used Rapira Platinum Luxes? I've found them to be really nice and smooth in almost all of my razors

I loved the Rapira Super Swedes but the Platinum Lux wasn't so good to me.

I had a similar experience. I like the Rapira Swedish Supersteel, but did not get good results from the Platinum Lux.

RSS and Voskhods are pretty much evenly matched, IMO

Sounds great. I have been enjoying testing these blades and the Platinum Lux worked best for me with Vokshod second and RSS third.

All three are in my top tier of currently produced blades.

That would be my ranking, too (with Rapira Super Stainless -- pink, blue, black tuck -- at the bottom of the list. Like shaving with a grater to me).

The RSS and Voskhods are solid performers for me, as well as the Ladas. I understand they all come from the same factory?

Thanks,
Ed

That is correct Ed. I also get good results from all three. By the way, over on eBay there is a Russian seller, unuta77, who has great deals on these right now, especially if you buy 200.
