These are the different versions I have of the Iridium Super blades, Including the same ones  milogciachez has in his picture, which I purchased from a vendor in Holland about 6 months ago.

I have a very limited stock, besides I await the reply of a few potential customers to distribute blades.
The big issue with Wizamet Iridium Super blades is that they are difficult to achieve and my supplier needs a minimum quantity for him to be worthwhile.

Email reply sent!

If the blades are a touch better than Polsilver Super iridium, you might even want to explore being a vendor here and do a quarterly/half yearly batch order here to meet the minimum quantity.

I am sure many members here would be interested in buying this blade in large quantities

What is the difference between the Wizamet Super Iridiums made in St. Petersburg and the Polsilver SI made in St. Petersburg? They both are made by Gillette it seems. I thought the Wizamets were different because they were made in poland.

Several contributors here on ShaveNook swear that there is a difference between the two PPI-manufactured blades.  Although I have no secret inside authority to confirm my suspicion, I submit that it beggars belief that a company would manufacture two products in the same factory that are visually indistinguishable, down to the printing on the blade.  Just think of the completely unnecessary additional difficulties involved in inventory and tracking.  That blades that are printed “Super Iridium” on the blade are sold both in Wizamet boxes that are printed “Iridium Super” and in Polsilver boxes that are printed “Super Iridium” reinforces my strong suspicion that all current production blades that are imprinted “Super Iridium” are the same, and only the boxes (and the order that the words are printed on the boxes) are different.

Long term Polsilver SI user and just acquired 250 Iriduim Super.

First shave was pretty rough and put down to a faulty blade. Not a good start. Swapped the blade, this morning, and had a good shave. Personally, I couldn't tell any difference between these and the Polsilver SI.
I'll do a few more shaves with both and report back.

The Wizamet seems hard to find......

All I see in the online shops is Polsilver SI.

Can you post a link, preferably to a respectable European online shop.


I said this in a response just a second ago. Yessss! They are better. Up until I used the British Wilkinsons, they were the only blades I used. I know a guy that has 1000 of them and he'll sell you any amount and at a pretty good price. You can message me if you want and I'll give you his email and you'll get them in two days.

I'm just going by memory here because all I use anymore are vintage, but I believe that, for some reason, they package the exact same blade two ways depending on whether it's a 5 tuck or a 10. I only saw the Iridium Supers in boxes of 10 and the Polsilver Super Iridiums in packs of 5.

The Wizamet-packaged blades that I purchased from Italian Barber indeed were in a ten-blade box.  The box says “Iridium Super”; the blades themselves are imprinted “Super Iridium.”  The printing on the box indicates that the blades were manufactured in St.Petersburg.

There were counterfeits shortly after the blue/silver Super Iridiums became unavailable. Just buy from a reputable dealer.

I notice there are two blue boxes of the super iridium, one with individual blades wrapped in blue paper and he other is white. Is there a difference between the two?
