Been wet shaving for close to a year , so please forgive this simple question:
I have noticed that Feather Blades come in a Yellow and some in a Black label. Is there a difference, or are they the same?

I believe that I have read on The Italian Barber site that they are the same, with the yellow labels being a 10 pack and the black label being a 5 pack.

It's actually the other way around. The Yellow Feathers have 5 blades/pack.

I've also read that the yellow was intended to be their export blade.  I know if you buy a new Feather Razor it will have a pack of the black label blades in it.

I have shaved with both and cannot tell a difference.

I've never had a black pack, but I know that my yellow packs have 10 blades in each.

Another seniors moment. Got it half right at least but the main thing is they are the same.

They are the same.

Here's a link for another thread, where this issue has been discussed before:

http://shavenook.com/thread-feather-vs-f...#pid283543

Same blade, but different package.


Yellow for Europe and USA, red carton w/ black packets for the Asian market... and there are also blue packets for South America (blue package in Portuguese, for the Brazilian market):

The yellow packets can have either 5 or 10 blades. Not sure about the black ones.
