I was given two of these with an order. after months of fantastic shaves this blade tore my face apart. I changed nothing in my arsenal but was blown away by this. any idea why or am I nuts?

made in the usa. and very dark almost black. still have one left and would like to give it a fair shake if I did something wrong. dark dark blue looks wicked!

Those are old and are subject to erosion, and micro erosion. I use them and I get great shaves but you have to do your due diligence. They should be in a sealed, undamaged package and even then give them a close once over perhaps even stropping them on a pair or jeans, for instance. If all is well you'll get at least one shave that stainless can't quite match. After that they go downhill in a hurry.

posted a long reply but must have missed the button. thank you for the link it was perfect. my blade is exactly the one in the picture and my results mirrored yours. I moved the blade to my exhibit of older shave gear (as small as that is) again thanks dave
