Hi there,

I just acquired this blades a I enjoy the quality shave they give me and was curious about history behind them?

Quick search suggest they were made by Wilkinson and are same as Wilkinson Light brigade just rebranded.

 Anybody care to shed some light?

For me the London Bridge blades have been exactly like my favorite Light Brigades.  This is what they look like.

Where from? The only place I see them at is Etsy and the vendor wants 30 bucks for a tuck of 5. Unless they are as good and as long lasting as P74's...................

A handsome price ...
Like celar36, I also got my stash from a Polish vendor, but I paid only 1 USD for a tuck of 10. One of the best deals I've ever made, in fact.

It looks as if Celar36 found out about Zenn. 

Thanks for the entertainment. 

Those look like excellent blades, which I shall look for on the internet.
