We recently enjoyed a great vacation in South Dakota.  During part of our trip, we stayed in a cattle ranch in Interior, South Dakota.  The sign leading into town says the population is 94.  We found a tiny grocery store in town and went in.  In the section of shaving items, I found these DE blades priced at $2.45 for 10.  I'm not familiar with the Top Care brand, but the back of the package says they are made in Israel.  Perhaps they are rebranded Israeli Personnas.

I'm undecided Phillip.  I'm not the collector type, but I'm leaning towards just keeping these as a novelty item.  However, I would like to know if these are, indeed, rebranded Israeli Personna blades.

Judging by the dispenser I would say that they are re-branded Personnas like you find in a lot of grocery stores.

While I'm not familiar with that brand I commonly find Israeli blades with that dispenser repackaged for other distributors. If they don't have the Korean dorco version it's going to be those at Walgreens.

I haven't used a Personna red in a while but from what I can remember these are similar in performance.

I agree, it's likely they're rebranded IPs/Crystals. They look exactly like the same blades sold in pharmacy chains as the house brand.
